and live on Freeview channel 276
Former Bristol City star Alex Scott has shown his allegiances in the West country remain strong even after having joined Bournemouth this summer.
The highly-rated 19-year-old completed a £25 million move to the Premier League last week after spending three years at Ashton Gate. Scott won the club's Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards after an impressive campaign for Bristol City last term.
The midfielder made 91 first-team appearances for the Robins and grew close to the club as it went from a relative unknown to one of the nation's future superstars.
Despite having made his move to the South Coast, Scott has shown he still loves the club he broke through at by dropping a cheeky comment on a footballing friend's recent Instagram post.
On Tuesday, young Chelsea star Harvey Vale agreed a season-long loan deal to take him from Stamford Bridge to Bristol Rovers and shared the news on social media. The 19-year-old said: "Proud to call @official_brfc home for the rest of the season. Let's go! UTG."
Scott knows the Gas' new attacking midfielder through the England youth system and swung by the comments to write: "Wrong side of Bristol. Time to shine tho bro."
Unsurprisingly, Scott was in for some ribbing from Rovers fans who had come to wish their new signing well while Bristol City fans online liked the comment and said their former star would 'always be a Robin'.
Scott didn't feature in Bournemouth's opening fixture of the Premier League season but will no doubt make an impact for the Cherries in weeks to come.
After completing the move last week, Bournemouth Chief Executive Neill Blake said: "Alex is one of the most exciting young players in Europe.
"He's a player that has vast experience at such a young age with strong technical ability and a really good footballing brain. Alex will be an excellent fit in our system."
