Club career[edit]

Yeovil Town[edit]

Born in Manchester, England, Poole is a product of the Manchester United youth academy. He left United for a trial with Yeovil Town in 2005 after the club decided to abandon one of their reserve sides.[2][3] Right-sided midfielder Poole impressed manager Gary Johnson during his month at Huish Park and he was signed by Yeovil on a free transfer in June 2005.[3] He made his debut for the club on 6 August 2005 in a 2–0 defeat to Oldham Athletic.[4] On 17 December 2005, he scored his first goal for the club, getting his name on the score-sheet in a 2–1 win over Barnsley.[5] He scored again later that month, in a 1–1 draw with Bristol City.[6] He finished the 2005–06 season with just the two goals to his name in 25 appearances.[7]

After playing just four games for Yeovil in the 2006–07 season,[8] he was sent out on loan to Football League Two side Stockport County for two-months in August 2006.[9] After scoring one goal against Barnet in five first-team appearances for Stockport, his loan was extended for an additional month.[9]

Stockport County[edit]

After returning to Yeovil for a short while, both clubs & the player agreed a deal that saw Poole return to Edgeley Park for a £10,000 fee.[10] He scored his first goal since signing on a permanent deal in an FA Cup third round tie at Premier League side Watford in January 2007.[11] Poole finished the 2006–07 season with three goals for Stockport since signing permanently,[8] the latter two coming as part of a 5–0 win over Darlington on the final day of the season.[12] He grabbed his first goal of the 2007–08 season in November, scoring in a 1–1 draw at Bradford City.[13] He scored his second of the campaign in March 2008, scoring the only goal in a 1–0 win over Lincoln City.[14] He finished the season with just the two goals in 25 first team appearances.[15]

Darlington[edit]

On 1 July 2008, he joined Darlington on a free transfer after being released by Stockport.[16] He made his debut on 9 August 2008, in a 1–1 draw with Exeter City at the Darlington Arena.[17] It took Poole until March 2009 to score his first goal for the club, when he scored in a 2–1 defeat to Macclesfield Town.[18] He finished the 2008–09 season having played a total of 30 games in all competitions, scoring just the one goal.[19]

Return to Stockport[edit]

In July 2009, he returned to Stockport County after being released by Darlington.[20] He made his second debut for the club on 8 August 2009 in a 0–0 draw with Oldham Athletic.[21] He scored his first goal of the season in November, in a 5–0 FA Cup win over Tooting & Mitcham United.[22] He received a red card in December in a 4–2 defeat to Leeds United.[23] He received his second red card of the season in March 2010 in a 1–0 defeat to Bristol Rovers.[23] He finished the 2009–10 season with just the one goal.[23] He scored his first goal of the 2010–11 season in December 2010, scoring in a 3–3 draw with Crewe Alexandra.[24] He scored just once more that season, scoring in a 4–3 defeat to Lincoln City in January 2011.[25] He finished the season with just the two goals in 32 appearances,[26] and in May 2011 he was informed that he would not be offered a contract by the club for the 2011–12 season.[27]
