Groves hails Harry's influence
Bournemouth manager Paul Groves said it was "a pleasure" to be in the company of Harry Redknapp after his side's 1-0 victory at Yeovil.
Redknapp, who was sacked by Tottenham this summer, has taken on an advisory role with the Cherries. Despite keeping a low-profile in the stands, Redknapp's magic shone onto the pitch as Richard Hughes fired a first-half in free-kick to give Bournemouth their first victory of the season. Groves' side created several openings in the second half, with Yeovil goalkeeper Marek Stech thwarting Wes Fogden before Lewis Grabban and substitute Wes Thomas both shot wide. After the game, Groves said: "Harry has supported us, been around the camp and travelled on the bus with us here. He made comments to myself about how we've played. "He's a fantastic football man and it's a pleasure to be in his company. I know and trust him, he's a great football person and his knowledge is second to none. The way he is as a person and the way he interacts with the players is fantastic."
