Afternoon AllSo today is massive game
for us in which we need to bounce straight back from Tuesdays disappointing result against Chippenham. Last season for a large part of it we did well bouncing back after a bad result and thats exactly what we need today.
Tuesday was unlike us, we gave away two penalties, harsh or not thats something we dont do, were very strong defensively and a lot of teams dont get given many chances against us so to give a team two huge opportunities in a game like that is a hard pill to swallow. In any game to come back from two goals down is a massive task. We did have chances but unfortunately didnt take them, were confi-dent in our attacking players though and know on most other days theyll hit the back of the net.
Anyway we are four games in, we dont have time to let our heads drop, we pick
ourselves up and go again today, we need to make Tatnam a hard place to come for other teams, we need it to be as loud as possi-ble and intimidating, you guys are brilliant in full voice so please be our 12th man and kick the lads on, its a massive help to us, roar us to a big three points.

BOARDROOM NOTESChris ReevesVice Chairman
Where on earth did that result Tuesday night come from?? Those of us that witnessed the sparkling football that put St. Neots to the sword on Saturday last just couldnt wait to see the team in action again and the pleasant evening,the perfect Tatnam pitch and a healthy crowd of 473 eagerly await-ing another 90 minutes of entertainment appeared to be setting things up for another three points and who knows depending on results elsewhere a return to the top of the table. How wrong were we! Chippenham in fairness were well worth their win on the night. They benefited from some strange (and vital) refereeing decisions but they rode their luck and at times controlled the play in a way that not many teams get to do here.
A bitter lesson must be learnt from this game. This is a strong league with many Clubs well able to perform very capably. We have no divine right to victory. We remain a huge scalp to all we play as a result of our success in recent years and we must play to our absolute highest potential each and every time we take the field if our ambitions are to be realised. We have the players with the ability,the drive and the motivation to do that. We certainly have a management team committed to that aim.
One of the beauties about this stage of the season is that the games come thick and fast and we have an early opportunity to put things right and knowing just how much the defeat on Tuesday hurt the players,they will be so determined to put things right this afternoon. It wont be easy of course as we face a strong challenge from a talented Merthyr side who have earnt their lace in the Premier League following their South and West Championship win last season. They have started this campaign in fine form and clearly are not struggling to cope with life at the higher level. Their players officials and supporters are most welcome to Tatnam.
Another welcome I should extend today is to the latest new arrival within the extended
Poole Town family in the shape of the new born baby daughter of Carl and Rosie Pettefer.Born on the morning of the Chippenham game and explaining Carls absence from the side that night. Hopefully Carl will be back today buoyant by the arrival of his beautiful daughter and de-termined to help his team mates banish the memory of their defeat on a day which for Carl and Rosie will be one of the best in their lives. Our congratuations go out to them both.
On a very sad note we lost one of our ex players last Sunday with the death of Derek Stroud at the age of 85. Derek finally lost his battle with cancer but will be warmly remembered by all who knew him. He played with distinction for a clutch of local Clubs including AFC Bournemouth and was also a fine golfer but more importantly a great guy. His son Ian also of course played for the Dolphins in our Stadium days.
On Tuesday of this week ko 7.45 there is another chance to see our talented u21 side-opposition yet to be confirmed at the time these notes are being penned. Always entertaining and a great way to spend a Tuesday evening. No admission charge just a bucket going round to help out with the cost of the officials. Next Saturday our u18s take on Eastleigh in a pre-season friendly ko 10.30.These lads are an exceptionally talented group and well deserving of support and with the first team just down the M3 at Slough-time enough to take in both games!
Next home game here is on Bank Holiday
Monday v Frome ko 3.00pm. Enjoy the game and dont forget the 50:50

MATCH REPORT MATCH REPORT
1 3Devlin (p) Sandell (2p)
Two Andy Sandell pen-alties and a late Matt Smith goal condemned 10-man Poole Town to a first league defeat of the season.
Sandells two penalties was followed by a Steve Devlin penalty, which was just a con-solation goal for the Dolphins.
Pooles first chance came in the second minute when Michael Walker nearly flicked home Devlins second-minute corner.
And Devlin was involved two minutes later when his cross-field pass found Luke Holmes, but the wingers cross was un-able to find a Dolphins player.
James Guthries cross found Sandell but his header wind, in what was one of Chippen-
hams few chances in the first half.
After 14 minutes, Marvin Brooks found Luke Burbidge who drilled the ball across the box. Chippenham goalkeep-er Kent Kauppinen held onto the ball, with Richard Gillespie lurking.
Brooks was involved 14 min-utes later when his shot went over after Burbidge pulled the ball back to him.
And 10 minutes later, Sand-ell scored Chippenhams first penalty of the match after referee Christopher Wade deemed that new signing Jai-me Gleeson had committed a foul in the box.
It was the only goal of the first half in a half of few

Luke Holmes ran through the Chippenham defence at the start of the second half before Brooks shot wide after good build-up play.
Ashan Holgate slipped up when played in through San-dell in what ended the flurry of chances at the start of the second half.
Holgate then won anoth-er penalty for Chippenham when him and goalkeeper Nick Hutchings collided in the box, resulting in a yellow card for Hutchings. Sandell duly stepped
