AFC Bournemouth: Club settles with former assistant boss Russ Wilcox
CHERRIES are reporting they have reached agreement with former assistant boss Russ Wilcox over his High Court claim against the club for wrongful dismissal.
Wilcox, who spent just four months in his post, had been pursuing Cherries for damages of £355,233 after alleging they had been in breach of his contract of employment.
His case surrounded the circumstances of his departure – with Wilcox having disputed the club’s decision to place him on garden leave following Lee Bradbury’s exit as manager in March 2012.
A brief statement, posted on the club website earlier today, read: “AFC Bournemouth can confirm that an agreement has been reached with former assistant manager Russ Wilcox, following his departure from the club in March 2012.”
Wilcox assisted Bradbury for 19 games between December 2011 and March 2012, the pair eventually replaced by Paul Groves and Shaun Brooks.
Earlier this year, Bradbury commenced an action against the club for wrongful dismissal, with his case having already been settled.
While the Daily Echo exclusively revealed details of both cases at the time, other media chose not to report the stories.
