Cherries Need To Build On Transitional Season

After a difficult season with wholesale changes last Summer and a number of changes coming this Summer too, the Cherries need to build on a year of change, according to Shaun Cooper.

Following a season of change, with more to come this summer, Shaun Cooper wants the season to come to build on the transition of the 2011/12 season, being quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "There have also been a lot of new faces. A number of the lads have played their first full season in the first team and the experience they have gained will be priceless and will serve them well next season. It has been the type of season you probably would have predicted at the start, although you would have hoped for better. Considering all the changes, I think we can see it as a good season and a good one leading into next. We made a few signings initially and the team took time to settle. Then, we brought in more players, good players who have done very well. There have been a lot of changes and there was uncertainty surrounding the (previous) manager’s position. Everyone was unsure if he was going to stay or go. It all adds up. As long as it all starts nice and steadily next season, I think we will do well".
