"To be in charge for the next three-and-a-half years is good news for me."
The 36-year-old led the Cherries into the League One play-offs last season,
where they lost out to Huddersfield on penalties
“It was a no brainer to give Lee a new contract”
Bradbury saw a number of players including
, Anton Robinson and
leave the club in the summer but has re-built and, after a slow start to the season, now has the Cherries in 9th place in the third tier.
