Bournemouth part ways with Yems

11th July 2018, 15:56 by Tom McGarry

Bournemouth have relieved football operations manager John Yems of his duties as part of the club's cost-cutting measures.

Yems was a highly respected member of Eddie Howe's backroom team having originally joined the club in 2012 and he played a major role in their promotion to the Premier League.

Howe was reportedly keen to keep hold of Yems, but Bournemouth have opted to let him go in an attempt to save money, a move that surprised many of the club’s players when they returned for pre-season training.

Ex-Crawley Town boss Yems was also disappointed by the club’s decision, although he insists he still holds Cherries owner Maxim Demin in high regard.

“The owner has always been fantastic with me, I’ve still got a very strong relationship with Max and I class it more as a friendship," Yems said. “The disappointing thing is with the people who do the day-to-day running of the club and how they’ve handled it after my six years of loyal service.

“To be told there’s no money for the position anymore is hard for me to take considering what I’ve given for the club."

The news will also come as a concern for Bournemouth supporters, as the need for the club to make cutbacks seems surprising considering they are preparing for a fourth successive season in the Premier League.
