Hargreaves: A step in the right direction

Hargreaves: A step in the right direction

AFC Bournemouth coach Chris Hargreaves is enjoying his new role working with the first team.

Hargreaves was a popular midfielder during his playing days and made almost 700 appearances in the lower leagues, most notably at Northampton, Torquay and Oxford.

During his days at Torquay he captained the side to Conference play-off glory and the following year he was part of Oxford's promotion winning campaign back into the football league.

Since retiring from professional football the 40 year old joined the youth set-up at Exeter City and headed up the Cherries new development squad.

In July 2013 it was announced that Hargreaves would be working alongside AFC Bournemouth management duo Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall with the first team, whilst also aiding new development coach Stephen Purches.

Hargreaves told afcb.co.uk...

"It`s been a pleasure working with the first team. They are great set of lads and the camaraderie is unbelievably good,"

"Working with Eddie and Jason has been a really good experience. Their attention to detail is excellent and people probably don`t realise how much work they put in.

"It`s a step in the direction I want to go in, but at the moment I`m happy to be working in the Championship for a really good club with a great coaching staff and set of players. It couldn`t be better."
