Bradders To Draw From Experience

Last updated : 22 January 2011 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Lee Bradbury has a wealth of experience to draw from as he takes his first steps in to football management, having played under 25 managers in his career.

Taking experience from each, Bradbury is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "You take bits and leave a lot of things. I think all you can do is be your own person. I’m honest and hard working and that’s how I got to be playing at 35. You have got to do it right and it’s the same with Steve Fletcher. He’s 38 now and still doing it. It takes a certain character to do that – to want it that much and be hungry. I will try to instil that in the players as well. One of my favourites was Terry Fenwick because he gave me my chance. His work ethic was work hard, play hard, and he got good results out of the lads. Harry Redknapp for his man-management skills, Alan Ball for his character and Terry Venables as well. He was brilliant on the training ground and he had so many good ideas. The lads really responded to him and he was good fun as well".
