Mitchell: We needed to re-structure staff

Mitchell: We needed to re-structure staff

AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell has spoken about the decision to make several off the field staff members redundant on Monday.

Reports suggest that around seven members of staff left the club on Monday including Commercial executive Tom Jeffes and long-serving club photographer and programme editor Mick Cunningham.

The departure of staff, especially that of Mick Cunningham has angered sections of the AFC Bournemouth support, with some supporters on the AFCB Vital forum suggesting a boycott of the Cherries match day programme.

Mitchell insists that the departures are not an indicator of cost-cutting around the club, rather a re-structure of staff.

Mitchell told BBC Radio Solent...

'We are spending our finances wisely, But if we need to re-structure staff then that is what we will do...'

'...We are embarking on new ventures, We hope to expand the club shop in the next few weeks. We are developing the car park which is all part of structuring the club for the future.

'We've got to watch every penny like everybody else and we have to spend it wisely, so if restructuring is what we think is best then that is what we will do. We won't shy away from saving a penny for the club because it is my responsibility to use our resources in the best way.'


Speaking to the Daily Echo about the departure of Mick Cunningham he added...

'...I became very close to Mick myself and often stood chatting with him at away and home games and he has done a great service for the club.

'But as regards anything else regarding Mick or any of the other staff, I don`t really want to comment on individuals.'
