NEW manager Jason Tindall is aiming for Cherries to hit the ground running and added: “There's a lot of stuff that needs to be done.”

The Dorset club have a quick turnaround of just more than three weeks to digest relegation from the Premier League, to their first day of pre-season training on August 17.

Tindall was today confirmed as stepping into the hot seat at Vitality Stadium after Eddie Howe last week departed by mutual consent.

And the 42-year-old, a long-time assistant to Howe, is eager to put his plans in place.

He told afcbTV: “With such a short turnaround there's a lot of stuff that needs to be done, a lot of planning that needs to be done and the good thing is I've got some very good staff around me, so we know what's expected.

“We know what needs to be done, it's just a matter of implementing it and getting it done as quickly as possible because, before you know it, the players are back and we're starting training again.”

Cherries are set to undergo a gruelling Championship campaign this season after finishing 18th in the top flight in 2019-20.

And Tindall insisted it was time to move on from the hurt of the club’s recent relegation.

“When you get relegated from any division I think it's really tough to take,” he added.

“Throughout your break and away from the club, that feeling tends to linger for some time.

“What we can't do is linger any longer than now and once we come back to work we're ready to face the challenge and face it head on and make sure we do everything we can to get off to a good start and get back to the Premier League.”
