Fletcher reverts back to player with Bournemouth

Steve Fletcher has stepped down from his post as assistant manager at Bournemouth but will remain on the Cherries playing staff. Bournemouth will look to appoint a new assistant from outside the club.

In a statement of the club's official website, the 39 year old said: "It wasn't an easy decision but I've really enjoyed the role and I love the club.

"My focus is now on helping the club push up the table and continuing the success of the last few years."

Chairman Eddie Mitchell said: "We would like to thank Steve for the hard work he has put in as assistant manager. He remains a popular and important member of the squad, and will undoubtedly have a big part to play in the future development of the club."
