Enjoying Coaching - Miss Playing

Last updated : 18 November 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Neil Moss, a previous Exiles Player Of The Season, is missing first team action, even though he is enjoying coaching youngsters. He is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I enjoy the coaching but find it tough not playing, so I haven't been down the ground to watch games. When you miss something, the last thing you want to do is be reminded of what you're missing. I don't really know where to go forward because I need some financial backing and everything I've earned is tied up in pensions, so I really want to know how I can be financially before I decide to move on. I always made sure a certain amount of my wages went into insurance through the club, which was something I've always done. That covers me for what's happened to me and gives me a couple of years' money to give me a cushion so I can try to do something else which I'm passionate about. You only get paid six months when you quit and that isn't really going to go far when you have two young mouths to feed like I have. It took a good deal of time to sever my contract with the club. With the new owners coming in it delayed everything else because people won't deal with you until you're officially retired".

Moss was forced in to retirement before the current season started, having failed to recover from an injury picked up last season at Cheltenham Town.
