O'Driscoll says goodbye

11 Sep 2006 - 10:31:56

Former Bournemouth boss Sean O'Driscoll admitted that it would be a big wrench leaving the Cherries, as he heads to Belle Vue to take charge of Doncaster Rovers.

O'Driscoll had been with the Cherries for 22 years, before opting to head north, along with his assistant Richard O'Kelly.

O'Driscoll's farewell at Dean Court came after a 1-0 victory over Crewe, with the Cherries stalwart saying: "It's been a difficult day.

"It has felt weird, I had to say goodbye to all the friends I've made at the club over the last 22 years.

"I've been here a long time and Bournemouth have been a big part of my life.

"But the players won't miss me. Being players they are already thinking about the next game and I am history.

"I've had a wonderful career at Bournemouth, but now is the time to move on and I'm looking forward to the challenge of taking over at Doncaster."
