Groves & Brooks to return to youth set-up

Groves & Brooks to return to youth set-up

Former AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves and his assistant Shaun Brooks will return to the club in their previous roles in the youth team set-up.

Brooks became the Head of Youth at the Cherries Centre of Excellence in 2010 and worked in this role until he was placed as Paul Groves assistant in March 2012 following the departure of Lee Bradbury.

Whilst Groves initially came to the club as the Cherries youth team manager in July 2011 replacing Joe Roach who left the club after 10 years in the role in June 2011.

During Groves and Brooks unsuccessful period in charge of the first team between March and October 2012, Mattie Holmes had taken a role in the Centre of Excellence set-up whilst Ross Embleton and John Donoghue joined the club in July to become youth team manager and Head Of Youth respectively with Chris Hargreaves taking over the newly formed development squad.

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell believes Groves and Brooks will return to their previous roles with returning manager Eddie Howe having the final say.

Mitchell told BBC Radio Solent...

'Shaun (Brooks) and Paul (Groves) I've spoke to a couple of days ago and they both want to stay with the club, they both want to go back to the roles that they had, they're very amicable people, and I'm sure Eddie (Howe) will enjoy their company when he visits the youth section and Eddie has the overall say from day one and they are more than pleased with that.
