Embleton leaves Cherries youth setup

Embleton leaves Cherries youth setup

AFC Bournemouth Youth team manager Ross Embleton has left the club following off the field restructuring at Dean Court.

On Monday evening it was reported that around seven non-playing staff had been made redundant at the club including AFC Bournemouth club photographer and programme editor Mick Cunningham and AFC Bournemouth Commercial executive Tom Jeffes.

Embleton only joined the Cherries in June last year, after former Under 18's manager Paul Groves had been appointed as first team manager on a permanent basis.

Embleton had previously worked at Leyton Orient and Tottenham before making the move to Dean Court, but by October Groves was sacked as first team manager with Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell stating that Groves would return to his former role.

Former assistant manager Shaun Brooks was also set to return to his former role as head of youth, a position filled over the summer by John Donoghue.

The Daily Echo have also reported that Donoghue also left the club recently.

Embleton wrote on Twitter...

"Many thanks to the people that sent me messages, the rumours are true but as I'm sure you realise I wouldn't make any comments on what has happened, I would like to thank the boys who I have coached and also certain staff at AFCB for helping me during my short period at the club.

"I hope for them (you'll know who you are) that promotion comes at the end of the season. Brilliant card by the way!

"Not forgetting to acknowledge the support and comments of those players that I spoke to yesterday. All the best!
