POOLE boss Tom Killick has bolstered his defensive resources with the signing of Yeovil teenager Rhys Baggridge – but has missed out on former Cherries midfielder James Coutts.

Baggridge, 19, has joined the Dolphins on a month’s loan and could make his debut in their Southern League clash with Tiv-erton at Tatnam tomorrow (3pm).

However, Killick’s attempts to persuade Coutts to drop down to Division One South & West failed when the AFC Totton man opted instead for a loan move to his former club Weymouth.

Killick said: “Rhys is a first-year pro at Yeovil and comes highly recommended. They feel he will do well for us.

“I also felt James Coutts would have done us a lot of good. He is an experienced and proven player and was close to coming but elected to play at a higher level.”

Dan Cann and Taffy Richardson are both suspended against Tivvy, while Claudio Herbert is unavailable. Baggridge, Pete Smith and Jimmy Glass are added to the Dolphins squad.

Dolphins: (from) Hutchings, Gill, Walker, Clarke, Spetch, Brooks, Howes, Hubbard, Preston, Jeffes, S Smith, Skelton, Joyce, P Smith, Baggridge, Glass.

• Josh Wakefield and Mark Jamieson are back in contention for Wimborne’s trip to Mangots-field United (3pm).

The Magpies head to Bristol looking to end a miserable 12-match winless league run.

Magpies: (from) Harvell, Arnold, Maybury, Peprah-Annan, Roast, Webb, Hill, Wignall, Davidson, Cook, Kemble, Cream, Clowes, Magookin, Cole, Wakefield, Jamieson, Ackerman.
