Youth Team Coach, Joe Roach, speaks of his emotions on the sale of Vokes to Wolves.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Roach is quoted as saying: "It will be a good learning curve for him but, from a personal point of view, my job is to develop players for AFC Bournemouth. I'm pleased for Sam but disappointed that one of our products has gone so quickly. I'm delighted we can say we've got a lad who has gone to Wolves. We've not had that since I've been here. If a club like Wolves is looking at him and buying him, it speaks highly of him and it speaks highly of the work done in the youth team and in the first team. It's a good club, very stable, and there are some good young players in the squad, which will benefit him fitting into the environment".
