Jason Tindall hopes to continue success

ASSISTANT boss Jason Tindall had a wry smile when asked if he would be hanging up his boots.

The 33-year-old made four emergency appearances last season as he and Eddie Howe competed with a transfer embargo on the way to promotion from League 2.

They were only able to field a full bench 10 times - more often than not only having three substitutes.

But with one of the strongest squads in the Championship now at their disposal, Tindall said: “Hopefully I’ll be hanging my boots up now - there are a few more players here than we had at Bournemouth!

“I don’t think my boots will be needed anymore.

“We struggled to fill the bench last season, and I was on the bench a few times, but hopefully I won’t have to do that here.”

But he is excited about the step up to the Championship: “For sure. Our work won’t change, the way we do things won’t change and I think that’s important.

“We had great success at Bournemouth through doing what we do.

“We’re not going to come here and start changing the way we work because it’s a step up and a league up.

“We’ll carry on doing what we’ve always done, and hopefully we can carry on the success here.”

And Tindall explained the partnership’s chemistry: “We share the same philosophies. We’re very hard working and there’s a lot of thought goes behind everything we do. We get on really well. That’s very important.

“When we’re not with each other we’re speaking on the phone.

“We’ve got a good working relationship, and also our relationship away from football is also strong.”
