Success Stories

Tommy Scott

Tommy played for Poole High all the way from year 7 to year 12. He was always an accomplished goalkeeper but his development really took off from year 11 onwards as he firstly broke into the Hamworthy United FC first team at the age of just 17 and was then picked up by Yeovil Town and offered a scholarship. Tommy has featured on the bench for Yeovil Town FC first team on more than one occasion and continues to impress.

Luke Nippard

Luke was consistently a stand out player throughout his time at Poole High School from year 7 to year 11 and during this time was part of the AFC Bournemouth Academy. He signed a two year scholarship at 16 and has gone from strength to strength, recently earning himself a professional contract at the Premier League Club. Luke has also spent some time on loan at Weymouth FC in the Southern Premier League.

Declan Rose

Dec was another stalwart through his Poole High School days, filling in at various positions with equal aplomb. Dec was at AFC Bournemouth Academy for much of his time here and having been released from there at 15, he didn't let that hold him back as he displayed great resilience in continuing to develop as a player and a man and was rightly picked up by Yeovil Academy and given a two year scholarship where he is flourishing. Dec was often played up in the Football Academy even while he was still in year 11.
