Redundancies at AFC Bournemouth

There have been reports that seven non-playing staff were made redundant at AFC Bournemouth on Monday.

The Daily Echo and BBC Radio Solent reported the news via their Twitter pages on Monday evening.

AFC Bournemouth Commercial executive Tom Jeffes later confirmed that he had left the club, writing on Twitter...

Absolutely gutted to leave #afcb today after 3 and a half awesome years!! Thank you to every1 it's been a pleasure and a joy!!!

It was later confirmed that long-standing AFC Bournemouth media manager Mick Cunningham was also made redundant by the club on Monday.

Cunningham has worked at the club as photographer and match day programme editor through all the financial difficulties of the club and the Daily Echo's Neil Perrett has referred to him as 'Mr AFC Bournemouth'.

If what I'm hearing about Mick Cunningham is true, #afcb today said goodbye to Mr AFC Bournemouth. he wrote on Twitter, while new Assistant Editor at the Bournemouth Daily Echo Neil Meldrum added...

Shocked to learn of Mick Cunningham's plight today. Very poor form from #afcb. The guy worked for nothing when the brown stuff hit the fan.

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell confirmed redundancies had been made to the Daily Echo's Ian Wadley, with Wadley tweeting...

#afcb chairman Eddie Mitchell tells the Echo the club has carried out some "restructuring". Refused to comment on individuals involved.

AFCB Vital would like to wish all those who lost their jobs good luck for the future, especially Tom Jeffes and Mick Cunningham who have worked tirelessly for the club over the years.

This is a shocker. Mick and Tom were especially valuable to the club. I had a lot of contact with Tom who was very responsive and customer focussed. Both these guys were doing key jobs so who will be covering their roles?

Probably someone from the Mitchell family will get the Jobs.
