POOLE Town chairman Chris Reeves is urging supporters to flock to Black Gold Stadium for Saturday's clash against Hartley Wintney (3pm).

Dolphins finally completed a midweek fixture on Tuesday, defeating Beaconsfield Town 3-1 in Southern League South.

But due to a string of recent postponements, Poole pre-arranged for their 'home' clash to take place at Dorchester Town's Avenue Stadium, something chairman Reeves admits did not help the club financially.

"Dorchester officials did us proud in terms of making their facilities available to us so that the Beaconsfield game could go ahead and I can’t thank them enough," he said.

"They were all terrific on the night and really looked after us superbly.

"The team responded with a superb display and three brilliant goals to secure the three points.

"Financially, however, it was another negative night as we did not take enough at the gate to cover the cost of staging the game."

Poole are due to return to Black Gold on Saturday for the first of 12 home games before the season ends next month.

Reeves said: "We have a clutch of home games at the Black Gold coming up and with the improvement in the weather are confident of them going ahead starting this coming Saturday.

"We so desperately need good attendances for these games to boost our empty coffers.

"The team did us proud against Beaconsfield. Spread the word and let’s turn out in force on Saturday to welcome them back and spur them on to a sustained challenge for promotion."

Wimborne Town are also in league action on Saturday, hosting Metropolitan Police (3pm).
