Howe: Fletch is Bournemouth through and through

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes club legend Steve Fletcher will be a big help to the squad following his retirement from playing.

Fletch will be working at the club as an ambassador and scout after announcing his decision to retire at the age of 40 following the clubs promotion to the Championship last season.

Fletch will be tasked with watching upcoming opponents as well as keeping a watchful eye on prospective transfer targets before returning to management duo Eddie Howe and assistant Jason Tindall with his assessments.

Howe also intends to use Fletch on the training pitch with the first team and the younger players, calling on Fletch's vast experience as a player.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'We will be looking to utilise Fletch in all aspects of scouting and his time previously as assistant manager will no doubt help him in the role.

"He is not one-dimensional and we will use him around the training ground as well. We will be able to call on him in several different areas, which can only benefit the club...

"...We will try to use him in the most beneficial way for the club. Everyone knows he is Bournemouth through and through and would do anything for the club. From that perspective, he will be a big help to us all off the pitch...'
