Chris Mepham only joined English Premier League side Bournemouth on Tuesday revealed that he would have quitted the round leather game after he was released by the Blues as a schoolboy.

According to him, he rejected a number of trials with Watford and QPR over his displeasure at being released from the West London outfit.
