Tindall: An incredible journey

Tindall: An incredible journey

AFC Bournemouth assistant manager Jason Tindall was delighted to celebrate an incredible journey which started in the Championship with Burnley and ended in the Championship with the Cherries.

In mid-October, following the departure of Paul Groves and Shaun Brooks as the management pairing of the first team, Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall were first linked with a return to Dean Court.

After 21 months away with Burnley, the pair returned to a heroes welcome, with Howe sighting personal issues as the reason for leaving Burnley.

Leaving a Championship club for a League One club who were in the relegation zone with just one win in eleven games, some people queried the move.

Not that the Dean Court faithful cared, as they had Howe and Tindall back home. An unbeaten 18 game run with the Cherries climbing their way up the League One table to in contention for the play-offs immediately followed.

After being knocked out of the FA Cup by FA Cup finalists Wigan following a replay, the Cherries lost the 15 league game unbeaten run at Walsall. But a five game winning streak catapulted the Cherries to the top of League One, just four months after Howe and Tindall had returned.

With the task of catch-up complete, the Cherries were almost expected to push on with the promotion task, but a five game losing run followed, dropping the Cherries back out of the play-off places.

The Cherries had to recover and they did with a club record breaking eight consecutive victories and while AFC Bournemouth took a maximum 24 points, the other promotion contenders all slipped up handing the Cherries promotion to the second tier of English football for only the second time in the clubs history.

Tindall told the Daily Echo...

'...We were in the relegation zone when we arrived and if anybody had said we would have been promoted with a game to go, you would never have believed them.

"The lads and everybody have put in a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication. Our attitude has been absolutely fantastic to every training session and every game that we have played. No group of players deserves it more than the group we have got here.

"Although we are disappointed because we wanted to win the league, let`s let that disappoint go and really think about and celebrate what has been an amazing season and an incredible journey."
