DOLPHINS boss Tom Killick has been handed a six-game stadium ban after being sent off twice during the Christmas period.

Killick was banished from the touchline on two separate occasions across four days during December, in Southern League South fixtures against Wimborne Town and Salisbury.

While the club are considering an appeal against the suspension, the Poole Town manager is expected to be unable to take to the dugout when Dolphins visit Chesham United tomorrow (3pm).

Assistant Taffy Richardson is set to take charge alongside coach Micky Hubbard.

A statement from the club said: “Arising out of the two red cards that Tom received in successive matches over the Christmas period of fixtures, the FA have imposed a six-game stadium ban.

“The club and Tom are considering an appeal.

“In Tom’s absence from the games, the team will be in the capable hands of Taffy Richardson and Micky Hubbard.”

Killick had previously been handed a six-game stadium ban in 2015 having admitted a charge of improper conduct.

He famously hit the headlines having watched the fifth game of his suspension – a 3-2 win over Cambridge City – through a skylight in the roof of groundsman Chris Kelly’s nearby home overlooking Black Gold Stadium.
