As Poole Town FC continue in their push for promotion, it was announced that Andy Rossiter has been confirmed their new major shareholder.
Rossiter, who has been a director since the summer of 2021, has a wealth of experience in the game, previously being part of the Yeovil town board for 23 years.
Chris Reeves, the Dolphins’ chairman, insisted that Andy “has been a breath of fresh air” and in so many ways “has bought into the Poole Town vision and ambition.”
It is understood that one of the main factors for the agreed investment associates with the wide range of contacts that Rossiter holds, both commercially and inside the football pyramid.
His personal and corporate investment will also help push the club forward towards their aim of reaching the National League South and beyond.
It’s hoped he can steady matters off the field, in terms of infrastructure, to allow success to be achieved on the pitch.
Currently, the Dolphins are placed 5th in the Southern League Premier South, among the play off places, 32 league games into the 2022-23 season.
They drew 3-3 against third placed Chesham on Saturday and are at home for their next two matches against mid table Metropolitan Police and Merthyr Town.
They will be hoping to extend their excellent home form this season.
The Dolphins’ committed and hardworking board of directors will hope that the players can take inspiration from the recent cash injection and remain in the hunt for promotion.
