It’s been a long time since Matt Tubbs last played for Bournemouth – ten years in fact – and since then his former side have risen from the depths of League One and into the Premier League before dropping back into the Championship and leading the pack again.
He spent three seasons with the Cherries in total, one when they were battling in the fourth tier and two as a regular starter for the side as they finished second in the third tier.
Whereas his side continued to bloom and fired themselves into the Premier League, the player was let go and has since been on a bit of a whistle stop tour of teams across the EFL.

The forward went on to play for the likes of Rotherham and Portsmouth and floated around the lower tiers of the EFL, mainly settling for several years playing in League Two. He then dropped even further down the pyramid and began to play National League football for teams like Eastleigh and Forest Green Rovers before they themselves broke into the fourth tier.
The player last played his football for a team called Gosport Borough as part of a role as player-coach. However, after some disappointing results, it appears that he left the side and now has turned his attentions elsewhere.
Tubbs is active on Twitter (@MattTubbs) and according to his bio is now focused on being a coach, as well as doing some PT and sports massages and being a pilates instructor and sports and exercise science lecturer and assessor.
There is still an interest in football there it seems – and he most recently tweeted about going for his UEFA A license, so we may see him coaching for a decent team sooner rather than later.
