Jake McCathy Joins The KI Soccer Coaching Team

Jake McCarthy Coach

Poole Town are delighted to announce the appointment of Jake McCarthy to their coaching department.

Jake, a full-time PE teacher, is joining as our Youth Development Officer and with the aim of improving the pathway for the area’s most talented kids to become potential players for Poole Town FC’s first team.

Richard Gale, club director and Kids and Community Officer, whose company Gale Homes and Investments Ltd are sponsoring Jake’s appointment, said “Jake’s appointment is the latest part of the plan which is being put in place by the Kids Initiative and Poole Town Wessex, our ladies and youth section, to attract and develop the best talent in the area.

Jake is a very experienced coach, currently undertaking his Uefa B licence, and he will be concentrating on developing our current provision for 14-18 year olds. We envisage that this will involve the creation of new Development teams competing in a number of local leagues.

As part of his role he will closely liaise with Champion Sports, who manage our U23s/Reserve squad, to provide a stronger pathway for talented young players to advance into the first team squad. I’m also delighted that he will be helping out with our Kids Initiative free weekly coaching sessions on Monday evenings which we are increasing from the beginning of August. Welcome to the club Jake!”
