Carl Fletcher

Carl Fletcher joined Bournemouth as a youth team coach in January 2014.

Fletcher was previously the manager of Plymouth Argyle in League Two.

His appointment followed a period where Carl was in caretaker charge of the club following the departure of Peter Reid in September 2011.

Fletcher initially took on the role as player-manager, also serving as club captain.

Taking over in very difficult circumstances, Fletcher secured the club's Football League status in 2011/12. At the end of the season Carl announced he had retired from playing to concentrate on management.

Fletcher has enjoyed a fruitful playing career where he represented Wales at international level for five years, earning 36 caps. He was also captain of the national team.

He began his career at Bournemouth before joining West Ham. Carl made more than 50 appearances at Upton Park, including starting the 2006 FA Cup final against Liverpool. He then joined Crystal Palace for £400,000 in July 2006.

After his spell at Selhurst Park he enjoyed a loan spell with Nottingham Forest, before signing for Argyle on loan in February 2009.

He went on to sign on a permanent basis in July that year and made more than 100 appearances at Home Park before becoming manager.
