Pen Pic

Purches originally joined AFC Bournemouth in June 2000, his seven year spell being best remembered for his goal at the Millennium Stadium during the Cherries Play-Off victory over Lincoln in 2003.

Purches left Dean Court in 2007 after 272 appearances before he joined Leyton Orient.

The former West Ham trainee went on to become Leyton Orient captain and made 122 appearances during three seasons in League One with the London club.

Re-signed for the Cherries in 2010 under former team mate and then manager Eddie Howe signed a new 2 and a half year deal in January 2012.

He unfortunately broke his leg just one month later and spent the next 16 months on the sidelines before being announced as a player-coach, taking over the development squad from Chris Hargreaves.

In February 2017 after earning his UEFA A License and starting his UEFA Pro License, he was promoted to first team coach.
