Cherries: Ex-boss Bradbury taking £350k court action against club

Bournemouth Echo: FORMER CHERRIES MANAGER: Lee Bradbury FORMER CHERRIES MANAGER: Lee Bradbury

FORMER boss Lee Bradbury has slapped Cherries with a High Court action to pursue around £350,000 in damages over claims of wrongful dismissal.

The 37-year-old’s case centres on the apparent circumstances surrounding his Cherries departure – with Bradbury alleging breach of contract.

Bradbury’s claim said he had refused to agree to proposed changes to the club’s management structure and coaching personnel prior to his exit.

He was appointed Cherries manager in January 2011 but left Dean Court in March 2012 following a tumultuous reign with the Dorset outfit.

Bradbury is claiming damages of £354,706.93 for breach of his £1,750 per week salary under his employment contract, expenses, bonuses, pension, car insurance and private medical insurance.

The High Court document said that following his Cherries exit, Bradbury had spent six months unemployed before taking a job as Havant and Waterlooville boss at an annual salary of around £35,000.

Bradbury’s claim said he was telephoned by chairman Eddie Mitchell at 1.30pm on Sunday, March 25, 2012, who informed him he was under pressure to make changes around the manager’s position.

It said that Mitchell told Bradbury he was going to promote youth team manager Paul Groves to share his job and work as joint first-team boss.

Mitchell is said to have further stated that he would also promote Shaun Brooks, head of youth at the time, to work alongside the newly-promoted Groves as assistant manager.

The claim said Bradbury, whose contract stated he was to have “total control of and responsibility for all football matters”, asked for time to consider the matter but Mitchell said he needed an answer that day and rang back for his response at 4.30pm.

During the second call, Bradbury is said to have asked what would happen to his assistant Russ Wilcox and first-team coach Ryan Garry, and he was told they would either have to take the jobs vacated by Groves and Brooks, or leave Dean Court.

The High Court claim said Bradbury told chairman Mitchell he could not consent to the proposed changes to the coaching staff and Mitchell informed him the club was “left with no option but to part company” with Bradbury.

According to the claim, Cherries director of football Tom Mitchell denied Bradbury had been dismissed. The document said Bradbury’s representative emailed Mitchell junior on March 26, 2012 to ask why his client had been summarily dismissed and his response was that Bradbury hadn’t been dismissed, but had resigned from his employment, and would no longer be paying his salary and his contract was terminated forthwith.

Groves and Brooks were subsequently appointed as manager and assistant following Bradbury’s departure, with the pair returning to the club’s youth set-up in October following an unsuccessful spell in charge.

The Daily Echo was last night awaiting a response from Fareham-based Bradbury, while Cherries chairman Mitchell said the club would not be commenting on the matter.

Bradbury just rode on the back of Ed's team of which he assembled during his first tenure. Theresults he acquired was certainly not down to Bradbury's management that's for sure.

Yeah good on you Bradders.I think anyone would do the likewise, if they were forced to make poor decisions about staff changes by bully boy Mitchell. Fair play to him for standing by his principles and not selling out on the dismissal of Russ Wilcox and Ryan Garry. Eddie Mitchell thinks he's untouchable, when it comes to football he's clueless and needs to take a back seat. I can imagine that if Eddie Howe had gone on a on a losing streak when he rejoined the club, he would have been treated in a similar manner. He probably was, prior to leaving for Burnley. I can remember him saying on his departure, all will become clear why he left in the future. It's just a shame that when Bradders wins his case and he will, that Mitchell couldn't be forced into paying the compensation. Still let's concentrate on three points on Saturday. IAD.

Sounds to me like there was some mis-handling by the Mitchells on this one (and I'm not a Mitchell-basher). It's a shame the team were sold after the play-offs as it would have been interesting to see if Bradders could have done much better than he did (I doubt it though!). IMO he took on EH's team and wasn't as good a manager so we were on a downward slope anyway and only just made the play-offs. Anyway all's well that ends well and we have our Eddie back, settle out of court! UTC.

Most comments on here are based on peoples judgement of LBs management record. This has nothing to do with that.

Even if managers resign they get a pay off under the terms of their contract. By being taken to court AFCB will likely have to pay expenses as well.

EM has a reputation among local businessmen for not paying his bills, he should pay what is owed and move on.

As far as im aware the only things that were dodgy was that Bradbury was appointed in the first place and some of his signings were well dodgy. Not sure you have done your sums correctly either, lets see,
400k paid for Ritchie
350k compo to the idiot mentioned
Based on PDC and your valuation of 2m, i'd say that was a saving (steal) of 1.25m, CORRECT.

Bradders went on an 11 game unbeaten run and EH has only just surpassed that score. He was a good manager and had to manage with the sale of most of EH players and he had to 'scratch around' for cheap replacements.
It is true he lost his last 5 games but IMHO it was panic stations by EM that cost him his job.
LB was prob employed in the 1st place as a cheap option, but what useless numpties EM substituted for him. and further more they should have been dismissed and not returned to their work to 'rock the boat' with the then employed lads...which seems like duplicating jobs to keep them both in at work. I wonder if either have any family connections.

I'm surprised that the Football League Manager's Association or whatever they're called haven't stepped in to arbitrate over this issue. I'd expect that LB's agent would have ensured that the contract offered by AFCB was watertight, so cannot see any likelihood of EM being able to defend this one. As we all said at the time, why offer an unproven manager a 2.5 year deal so soon into his incumbency?

LB was prob employed in the 1st place as a cheap option, but what useless numpties EM substituted for him. and further more they should have been dismissed and not returned to their work to 'rock the boat' with the then employed lads...which seems like duplicating jobs to keep them both in at work. I wonder if either have any family connections.
Get this sorted pbq EM and not upset the punters.

Agree - it is the result of the Mitchell family's lack of managerial skills and experience I'm afraid - especially when managing people

It is only since Denim has become more involved in the decision making and the Mitchell's being less visible that we are progressing. Unless this had happened the club would be in turmoil under Mitchell's direction

The difference is Bradbury probably drew 8 of those 11 games, with what was essentially Eddies team. He got found out when he srarted drafting in all his mates. If as you say Bradbury was indeed a good manager, dont you think he would now be managing at i higher level than Havant & Waterlooville.????

That amount mentioned of compo is about the saving made on the purchase of Matt Richie - what goes around comes around.
Dodgy dealings.????. Care to elaborate.
As far as im aware the only things that were dodgy was that Bradbury was appointed in the first place and some of his signings were well dodgy. Not sure you have done your sums correctly either, lets see,
400k paid for Ritchie
350k compo to the idiot mentioned
Based on PDC and your valuation of 2m, i'd say that was a saving (steal) of 1.25m, CORRECT.
I dont think for one moment that PDC was serious with a valuation of 2m. Ritchie is a great player and you did get a bargin- how is he doing?, probabily worth at least 1m. Dont see why you should have to pay out anything to Bradbury. The only good thing he seems to have done for you lot was to be replaced by an outstanding young manager. Any chance he could give our boys a few tips for this weekend!.

Wahey - this sites getting jumpy when the words 'dodgy dealings' are mentioned - hmmm I wonder why ??....

We know all about dodgy dealings as you well know .... that shot in the dark flushed a few quick worried comments out from you lot, and the trying to deflect the subject away with the usual bucket ramble that has no effect what so ever I'm afraid - try a different record.

As you said PNE could be a hard game and with the events of this week - you know winning 3-1 at Tranmere etc , new owners, new backroom staff etc.. - still bring it on and we may surprise a few.

How's the takeover going? Still not ratified by the FL? Unpaid fees regarding a loan player? And the Swindle fan has the brass neck to come on here and suggest dodgy dealings going on. Pot, kettle and black, me thinks.
Done and Dusted now - so up yours PB.

i'm a bit baffled by this story. I thought he already got his full salary for the remainder of his contract after he departed.
Even though he didn't succeed here, he was always up against it because he had to sell our best players and the club were falling apart on and off the pitch.
It should be settled out of court. It's a massive amount of money, especially when you think we are still renting our ground.
I have been a big time mitchell basher over the past couple of years, but since denim has come good and DOES EXIST AFTER ALL (lol), you have to credit EM for finding us an investor with huge financial backing. Now we are finally starting to see our full potential again, look at the gates of over 9,000 and expect to see a couple more of them before the end of the season if we continue to fight for promotion.

I have been a big time mitchell basher over the past couple of years, but since denim has come good and DOES EXIST AFTER ALL (lol), you have to credit EM for finding us an investor with huge financial backing. Now we are finally starting to see our full potential again, look at the gates of over 9,000 and expect to see a couple more of them before the end of the season if we continue to fight for promotion.
