Cherries: Groves closes in on development coach appointment
7:00am Friday 29th June 2012 in Cherries News
PAUL Groves has confirmed he has held talks with candidates for Cherries’ development coach vacancy as he looks to put the finishing touches to his backroom team.
The Cherries manager is hoping to recruit somebody to oversee the club’s new development squad in time for the start of pre-season.
He is imminently set to have discussions with further contenders for the job.
The position is the last one Groves is looking to fill as part of his new-look backroom staff.
Groves told the Daily Echo: “The development coach is one role we haven’t filled and it is a role we feel is vitally important and one we feel we need to make sure we get the right person for.
“We have spoken to one or two people and will speak to more people as well to make sure we do get that right person.”
Groves, meanwhile, labelled Ross Embleton a “good addition” after naming him as Cherries’ new youth team boss.
The 30-year-old’s arrival followed the appointment of Dennis Rofe as the club’s first-team coach.
Groves had already drafted in head of sports science Dan Hodges and performance analyst Garvan Stewart.
