Purches: Great club to be a part of

AFC Bournemouth utility player Stephen Purches believes the Cherries vacant managerial role will be a very sought after position.

Purches, who is still going through the rehabilitation process after breaking his leg last season, believes there are many reasons why any prospective manager would find AFC Bournemouth an attractive proposition.

The Cherries have been linked with a few high profile managers, including managers who are already working in League One and Purches believes the role at Dean Court would be difficult to turn down.

Meanwhile Purches has been working with the centre of excellence in recent weeks as well as concentrating on his own recovery.

The midfielder jogged for the first time earlier this week and he will continue to make progress on a return to full fitness over the next few months.

Purches told the Daily Echo...

'...(the club) is close to my heart, I am very fond of it and I am sure there are a lot of other people who feel the same way as me. It is a great club to be a part of.

'I am sure there will be plenty of interest from top names and from other up-and-coming managers.

"I am sure it would be a hard job for anyone to turn down if offered as well. I hope whoever comes in really relishes the chance to stamp their authority on it and take us places."
