Former Hawks and Gosport defender Brett Poate swaps Moneyfields for AFC Portchester first team coaching role
Brett Poate has become the latest member of Moneyfields management staff to move to AFC Portchester.
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.
Speaking to The News earlier this week, the now Royals first team coach said he would be assessing his options before making a decision on his next step after the surprise departure of Carter.
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.
