Evening all, so we come into tonights local derby vs Dorchester on the back of two solid 1-0 victories, we base our success on cleans sheets and we know with our attacking players well always score goals. To get two back to back will now hopefully kick us on after a slow but not bad start to the season.
Barnstaple Town came to Tatnam in the FA cup and it proved a tough encounter, low-er league sides always cause upsets in the FA Cup but we did well in this fixture and were very professional with our per-formance, it wasnt fantastic by any means but it was a clean sheet and a 1-0 win, we were in the hat and we move on, but we know we can do better.
Up next we faced a tough away test against Biggleswade Town, a team who have made some good signings and look strong this season. We man-aged to come away with a fantastic 0-1 win, the lads were brilliant and I was happy that young Luke Holmes got his
goal, hes such a bright young player with a good attitude and is a top lad and if he keeps working hard Im sure can really kick on. The team defended brilliantly through-out and thoroughly deserved our clean sheet. Ill be very surprised if many sides come away from there with 3 points this season.
Tonight is an exciting fixture, both us and Dorchester are up there in the league and they have started the season well. They have players that have been with us previously and vice versa so that can only add to the rivalry. So enjoy the game and get behind the lads, we need a good atmosphere at Tatnam and its time to make it a fortress again.

BOARDROOM NOTESChris ReevesVice Chairman
Tonight sees one of the fixtures that are always looked out for as soon as they are published - home to Dorchester. Always a big game with so much more than league points or cup progress at stake! The history and rivalry between the Clubs goes back decades and the links between the two clubs go on and on. We have a saying here at Poole: once a Dolphin always a Dolphin.
It is always strange to see ex Poole players in the opposition ranks - play-ing tonights opponents that is always likely to happen and the familiar faces in black and white this evening are Charlie Davis, Jake Smeeton and of course their player-manager Mark Jermyn who graced our side all too briefly at the start of last season. The players officials and supporters of the Magpies are most welcome to Tatnam and we look forward to a cracking nights entertain-ment. The postscript to this introduction to this Southern League Premier Division clash is that if we think it strange to see ex Poole players in black and white,h ow much stranger must it be for Dorches-ter supporters to get used to seeing Dorchester legend Jamie Gleeson playing for us!
Both teams should come into this fixture full of confidence. Our lads sent the impressive travelling support home very happy from Biggleswade after a clinical first strike for the Club from Luke Holmes gave us the first three points that any visiting side has taken from Biggleswade this season. It was a real proper competent away performance and given that we were without the sick Steve Devlin and the not quite fit Richard
Gillespie all the more creditable.
Dorchester meanwhile were dispatching in form Stratford by 3-1 helped by a goal from Charlie Davis.
Plenty happening off the field at pres-ent.Friday sees our annual golf day at Canford Magna ably organised by Sam Bumford.Not too late to get involved- see Sam or any director for details.
Also- we are 125 this year! A great cause for celebration so do look out for all the different things we will look to or-ganise to mark this impressive achieve-ment (against a fair few odds I might say!). If you would like to be involved with the organisation of this do please shout! You will be made very welcome.
Finally the Club is looking for a clutch of new faces to form a Vice Presidents Board to help take the Club forward - look out on the website, social media and the local press for more information on that.
As ever, enjoy the game and dont forget the 50:50 tickets.

MATCH REPORT MATCH REPORT
0 1L Holmes
Poole returned to winning ways in the league, as they won for the third consecutive time at the Carls-berg Stadium, also hitting the woodwork on three occa-sions. Poole also debuted their new Fans Kit, a lovely light blue number.
Waders stopper, Ian Brown, put in another superb shift against the Dolphins, as he prevented the scoreline from looking embarrassing.
Marvin Brooks aerial prow-ess meant he was a handful all afternoon for the home sides defence, as he rose above his markers on multi-ple occasions, while the three Lukes pace and close control caused many headaches for
the hosts, stretching and pull-ing the back four constantly with dangerous attacks.
Luke Holmes did well to beat two men with some quick feet, after latching onto a superb ball from Brooks, and his shot may have taken a slight deflection as it whizzed through a defenders legs, past a stranded Brown in the Biggleswade goal.
It wasnt a completely dom-inating performance from the Dolphins,as Walker and Lind-say had to make some last ditch challenges to prevent the hosts getting in on the goalscoring action.
Some brave defending from the Biggleswade boys meant the visitors went in at the

MATCH REPORT MATCH REPORTbreak with just the one goal lead, after some real bodies on the line performance from the defenders in green,
Lewis Tallack replaced Will Spetch, and thus the two Lewis switched sides of the pitch, with Lindsay slotting back in on his preferred posi-tion of left back, and ditto for Tallack, at right back.
Surprisingly, Tallack, more adored by the Poole faithul for his astute defensive perfor-mances, made a swashbuck-ling run into the penalty area, getting behind the ball to fire a powefrul shot on goal, which was well met by Brown, again.
Biggleswade gave the visit-ing defence a scare as a well struck shot bounced down, off the underside of the bar, bouncing clear much to the dismay of the home crowd.
Browns best saves of the day came in quick succes-sion, after having tipped Lewis Lindsays bullet header over, made a fantastic save to his bottom right, only to flick the ball in Walkers path, who could only fire into the keeper, who stood tall to save again.
Poole held on to record a fifth win in six over the Wad-ers, and their 3rd successive win at the Carlsberg Stadium. Poole will look to take some form into a tasty clash with at Tatnam, when they face Dor-set Rivals, Dorchester, in a 3rd v 4th battle, with both teams looking to gain lost ground on league leaders Chippenham.

The Fans View
Jack Tanner gives his view on the match:
Poole had a barrage of shots on the Biggleswade goal, but due to some heroic goalkeeping, could
only score once, but that was good enough to earn another three points and move up to third. Massive game tonight, in a key battle at the top, to
put pressure on Chippenham.

Today we welcome local rivals Dorchester to the Tatnam for another league encounter. Its somewhat disappointing from my point of view to play a local derby like this on a Tuesday night in September . Having said that although the league table is somewhat embryonic it certainly adds some significance to play the match with us lying third in the table and them immediately below us. I always felt Mark Jermyn would do a good job when he returned as manager and thats proved to be the case. He is a tenacious competitor as a player with an immense enthusiasm and will to win. It would appear these qualities are rubbing off on his players and they have gained some impressive results so far including from their point of view a cherished win against Weymouth. Dorchester have seemingly operated under tight finan-cial constraints in recent seasons but looking at the squad they have assem-bled things must be improving off the field and I have no doubt they will be challenging at the very top end of the season come April .
There are many players involved in the match who have played on both sides including Steve Devlin, Michael Walker Jamie, Gleeson, Jem, Charlie Davis Jake Smeeton and Neil Martin. This always adds a bit of spice and I expect to see a full blooded encounter tonight with plenty of aggression and passion.
We had a great result on Saturday away from home against a strong Biggleswade side. Luke Roberts was immense and is really maturing into a top player. I have always had complete
faith in Luke and Im so pleased he is starting to get some recog-nition. Apart from being a talented player he is a lovely lad who has never been a moments trou-ble. He has to keep working and stay focused and he has a great footballing future ahead of him.
Luke Holmes, at only 18, has also im-pressed since his arrival from Wimborne and is another player I have high hopes for.
It was a concern to lose Will Spetch at half time through injury but I am hop-ing its nothing too serious and he will be back tonight.
In the FA cup we have a really tough draw away at Hayes and Yeading. The draw doesnt ever seemed to have been particularly kind to us in recent years but its certainly a game we be-lieve we can win if we play to our best. It would be great if you could travel in big numbers to that game as a strong vocal presence at an away match always helps.
The league shows all the signs of be-ing very open this year. I am sure there are 13 or 14 teams that genuinely think they can challenge for the play offs or better. We have to make sure we stay strong , stay consistent and learn from the experiences of last season . That, combined with you the supporters staying fully behind the players will give us every chance of the success we all crave.
