AFC Bournemouth reserve team manager and defensive coach Ryan Garry has left Dean Court following a backroom re-shuffle by newly appointed manager Paul Groves.

First team sports scientist Louis Langdown and performance analyst Rob Page will also leave the club following Paul Groves’ ‘initial changes to his backroom staff’.

AFC Bournemouth Physio Steve Hard, sports therapist Dave Gardner and goalkeeping coach Neil Moss will remain part of the club.

Ryan Garry joined AFC Bournemouth on a free transfer from Arsenal over the summer of 2007.

During the early part of his career Garry suffered with injury, with shin splints the main cause behind his departure from Arsenal. He also struggled during the early stages of his AFC Bournemouth career, but appeared to put this behind him and was a crucial member of the Cherries squads that first avoided relegation out of the football league despite a seventeen point deduction, to then win promotion to League One the following season.

But during the 2010/11 season Garry struggled with a nerve related problem in his lower leg which limited him to just 12 appearances.

After failing to recover he was forced to announce his retirement at the age of 27 and became first team coach and reserves team manager under former manager Lee Bradbury.

Groves told afcb.co.uk

‘A new management team must come with new ideas and new faces, and we felt it was necessary to make these changes.

‘There haven’t been any appointments as yet, but we will look to make additions over the summer.’

‘I’d like to thank Louis and Ryan for all the hard work they have put in since we took over and wish them the very best.’
