Poole Town FC Wessex is run by a dedicated team of volunteers, without whom the club would not be able to function. All of our club officials and coaches are DBS checked and have the relevant safeguarding, first aid and FA qualifications (where applicable). They dedicate many hours of their time to give the children a safe environment to play football, enhance their skills, make friends and most importantly - have fun!
The key club officials and relevant contact details are provided below.
