Last updated : 31 December 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
With the start of a New Year just around the corner it has been announced that Jimmy Quinn is no longer the manager of AFC Bournemouth, having only been in charge for a mere 121 days at the troubled League Two side.

A Club statement issued on the Clubs Official Web Site reads:
AFC Bournemouth have today parted company with Manager Jimmy Quinn. The move follows a board meeting held this evening with the new AFC Bournemouth board.

The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Jimmy for his efforts over the last four months and wishes him every success in the future.

Eddie Howe will become the caretaker manager with immediate effect and will take charge of the team for their League 2 clash with Darlington on Saturday.

The club are holding a press conference at Dean Court on Friday morning at 10:30 where the new board will update the local media on the current situation at the club.

Quinn was in charge for just 25 league and cup matches, winning 7, drawing 9, loosing 9.

The future of Tindall and (Ted) Sutton are unclear at this stage.
