Bournemouth Echo reporters have been told they are no longer welcome at Bournemouth's Seward Stadium. Southampton banned the paper's sister-title two years ago, and now, following a series of disagreements between the club and the newspaper, the Echo has been told to stay away. The decision "brought to a head weeks of needless and childish screw-tightening by the football club", says the paper. Reporters were banned from asking questions in manager Lee Bradbury's post-match press conferences after a journalist reported that the manager called his players "immature". "Since becoming manager, Bradbury has taken it upon himself to make life increasingly difficult for our reporters. It truly is a crying shame that it has come to this," read a statement on the Echo website.
