The former Hawks and Gosport defender has agreed to become first team coach at the Royals.

He will be part of Dave Carter's - who swapped the Moneys manager's role for the vacant position at Portchester earlier this week - backroom team at the Wessex League Premier Division outfit.

But Poate has opted to follow the manager who handed him his first coaching role last summer after calling time on an impressive non-league career to Portchester.

Gavin Spurway, who was Moneys assistant manager, has also swapped Dover Road for the Crest Finance Stadium.
