Steve Fletcher has stepped down as assistant to Lee Bradbury.
AFC Bournemouth are looking for a new assistant manager to replace Steve Fletcher after he stepped from the role he inherited from Jason Tindall.
Speaking on the Clubs Official Web Site big Fletch is quoted as saying: "It wasn't an easy decision because I've really enjoyed the role and love the club. I just feel it would be more beneficial for the team and the club if I return to my role as a player for the remainder of my contract. The door has been left open for me to stay at the club as a coach in a development role but for the forseeable future I'll be returning to playing. This decision hasn't been made overnight but we all think it will be the best for the team. The club is going in the right direction. I still think I have a lot to offer as a player and it is up to me to impress Lee in training now. I have loved my time as a coach here, I have experienced some amazing highs and am excited about the future here. My focus is now on helping push the club up the table and continuing the success of the last few years".
The Club has said that it is looking to recruit from outside to replace Fletcher as assistant manager.
