Embleton Looking Forward To New Season

AFC Bournemouth’s new Youth-Team Coach Ross Embleton has admitted he can’t wait to get the new season underway.

The Cherries, who have been looking for a new permanant Youth Team Manager since March when Paul Groves and Shaun Brooks were promoted from the youth set up to take charge of the first team, recently appointed Embleton.

And the former Leyton Orient and Tottenham Hotspur coach can’t wait to get started.

“There needs to be a pathway for the kids on our doorstep who are training and working week in, week out at professional clubs,” Embleton told afcb.co.uk.

“And for Paul and Shaun to have the desire to bring them through was a massive draw for me.”

“From my conversations with Paul and Shaun, and going to watch a couple of first team games at the back end of last season, I feel I fit into their approach.”

“I’m really excited about pre-season. First and foremost, I’m looking forward to getting to know all the coaches and then getting to work with the boys.”
