Mitchell: Youth set-up push

Mitchell: Youth set-up push

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell wants to give the Cherries new youth team set-up a push.

Over the summer the Cherries changed the youth set-up at Dean Court, forming an academy and a development squad.

A number of new faces were added to the backroom team with Ross Embleton and John Donoghue taking the roles of Youth Team manager and Head Of Youth, following Paul Groves and Shaun Brooks being given positions in the first team managerial set-up on a permanent basis.

But following their sacking as manager and assistant manager last month, the pair have now returned to their original roles in the youth team.

That has now led to the confusing situation where it would appear that four people are now doing the work of two roles.

Mitchell told the Daily Echo...

"It gives us the opportunity to do as much as possible with the youth team and I think there is work there to do. It is somewhere I want to focus a little bit more in the near future to really get the most out of it and push it along. I think we have got the right people in there to do that."

This could turn out to be a complete waste of time or be a success. Time will tell & then wil judge Mitchell on his decision.

Hang on a minute. EM has made what might turn out to be the best decision of his life, in bringing back EH and JT, and without a shadow of a doubt the best decision for the club, maybe ever. So far he has not interfered or done anything to undermine that decision so I for one am eternally grateful.

To be fair Groves and Brooks have done a lot for the youth set up they were out of their depth with the 1st team but the experience they can pass onto the young players is great, so imo we should leave them to do this.

Garbo you need to stop jumping to conclusion! Despite everything that has gone over the years what matters is where we are now. We're loaded & pushing for the championship! Lay off Mitchell as whatever he's doing it appears to be working no matter how odd.

I keep hearing that Groves & Brooks have 'done a lot' for the youth set up, can anyone please just explain exactly what that is?
