In his time in charge of the Cherries, Eddie Howe has become a club legend.
Defying the odds against relegation as well as leading the side to the Premier League, there is no doubt that Howe will go down in Cherries folklore as the club's greatest ever manager.

While Eddie Howe takes most of the headlines, Jason Tindall’s contribution shouldn’t go unnoticed.
A former player and likeable coach, Tindall is a vital component in the backroom staff at Vitality Stadium.
Tindall’s association with the club stretches back to 1998 when he was signed by then manager Mel Machin.

Joe Roach is a club legend in many supporters' eyes, having overseen the development of a host of youngsters including Sam Vokes and Danny Ings.
Roach spent almost 10 years on the south coast, becoming an integral part of the Cherries' back room staff before before departing in 2011.
He then went on to audit club academies on behalf of a company working for the Premier League for two-and-a-half years.
However, with the roles in the youth team vacant as of January 2014, Eddie Howe moved swiftly to re-appoint Roach as academy manager, where he will look to again unearth similar gems as he did in his previous time at the club.
Youth Team Manager
Fletcher rejoined the Cherries at the start of 2014, calling time on his playing career at Barnet to return to his former club to take over the reigns of the youth team.
The 33-year-old came through the ranks at Vitality Stadium, going on to make almost 200 appearances for the club.
He also played for West Ham United and Crystal Palace, as well as experiencing loan spells at Watford and Nottingham Forest.
He then moved to Plymouth and it was here that he got his first taste of management, first as caretaker before later being given the job on a permanent basis.
He briefly returned to playing at Barnet, but left the role in January 2014, to rejoin the club that gave him his chance in professional football.
Fletcher rejoins up with a number of his former team-mates including Eddie Howe, Jason Tindall, Neil Moss and Stephen Purches at the club, as he looks to produce the stars of the future alongside Joe Roach.
