Sports Careers client, CARL FLETCHER has already started work as the manager of AFC Bournemouth's under-21s, with a pre-season campaign already under way after being named the new boss earlier this month.
Following Stephen Purches' step up into the Cherries' first-team coaching set-up in February, Fletcher moves from his role with the under-18s to become under-21s manager.
Fletcher - who previously captained the club as a player - told afcb.co.uk what the position means to him and gave his aims for the future.
"I have a strong affiliation with the club and I'm delighted to take on the role," he said."
"It's great for my development to come into the role and try to become a better coach. I was with the under-18s for three years and feel I did well."
"I'm looking forward to the different challenges the role will bring and to increase the development of the players going forwards."
"I've worked with the majority of the players at the younger level and now the job for them and for me is to push on as far as possible."
