JOSH Carmichael says he is "loving every minute" of being a Poole Town player.

The former Cherries midfielder joined Dolphins from Weymouth in the summer and has been a regular fixture in Tom Killick's side.

He netted his first goal for the club in their last league outing at Truro City in October.

Discussing his start to life as a Dolphin, Carmichael told the Poole Town website: "I've massively enjoyed being a Poole player, I've felt incredibly welcome since I joined and I'm loving every minute of it.

"The boys have been excellent towards me and the gaffer has shown faith in me for most games so I'm just looking to repay that as much as possible."

Poole were due to face Merthyr Town on Saturday, only for the game to get called off due to the Martyrs getting stuck in traffic on the M5.

That was just the latest in a string of recent postponement for Killick's men.

"I can't say I've ever been in a situation like it," said Carmichael.

"It's a difficult one because after a few disappointing performances, you want to get back out there straight away and put things right.

"When you go that long without a game it can be quite hard to establish a rhythm but the boys are ready and, if anything, we are a bit more excited to get back out there."
