POOLE Town boss Steve Tully is hoping to add further knowledge and expertise to his coaching staff in the form of Dolphins legend Steve Devlin.

Appointed on Tuesday, Tully has been joined in the dugout by Luke Burbidge for his first two games in charge.

Only goalkeeping coach Mark Phillips remains from previous boss Matt Tubbs’ backroom team.

And whilst Tully is not expecting further coaching reinforcements ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Plymouth Parkway (3pm), he hopes that Devlin will soon be a part of his coaching staff at Tatnam Farm.

Both Burbidge and Devlin were veterans of the most successful Poole sides of recent years, helping the club to two promotions during their playing careers.

Asked by the Daily Echo if he was hoping to bring in further members to his coaching staff, Tully replied: “We’re looking into it.

“Steve Devlin might come in and join the coaching staff between now and the end of the season.

“He’s got family commitments Monday, but I'm looking to get another body in with me.

“I think Luke's been great, knows the place, knows the club, knows the area.

“And they're the kind of people I want.

“He's got a good tactical mind on him.

“I don't want yes people.

“I want people that challenge me or people that don't agree with me because that will make us better as a collective.”

Dolphins are currently 13th in the Southern Premier League South table, with 42 points from 35 games.

Five points separate Dolphins from Tiverton Town in 19th, the final relegation spot of the division.
