O'Neil appointed to coaching staff


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Gary O’Neil has joined the coaching staff at AFC Bournemouth and has been appointed as the club’s senior first team coach.

The incoming O’Neil joins from Liverpool, where he had been working as assistant manager with the club's under-23 squad.

During a successful near-20 year career as a professional, O'Neil played in the Premier League with Portsmouth, Middlesbrough, West Ham United and Norwich City, hanging his boots up at the end of the 2018/19 season after a stint with Bolton Wanderers.

During his playing career, O'Neil was promoted from the Championship on four separate occasions, experience he will be looking to bring to the Cherries' squad.

“I’ve known Gary for a number of years, having played with him at Middlesbrough,” said Cherries head coach Jonathan Woodgate.

“He comes highly recommended from Liverpool and has a great knowledge of the game and an appetite to never stop learning.

“Gary is going to bring something different to the coaching staff. He’s a new voice to the players, someone who has no connection to Bournemouth and I believe that an outside pair of eyes are important for us.

“I’m really looking forward to Gary joining our staff.”
