From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Kevin Poole (born July 21, 1963 in Bromsgrove, England) is an English football player and goalkeeper who is currently Derby County's player-goalkeeping coach, having been released by Bolton Wanderers F.C..

A football veteran, his first team was Aston Villa F.C., who he joined at the end of the 1980-81 season, playing 28 league games from apprentice level, intercalating a loan spell at Northampton Town F.C. from November 8, 1984. He moved to Middlesbrough F.C. in 1987, a year after a relegation season which saw them drop out of the old Division Two, and left them at the end of the 1990/91 season which saw them finish seventh in the same league.

He moved from Middlesbrough to Leicester City F.C., four months after a loan spell at Hartlepool United F.C. from March 27, 1991. Poole made 163 appearances for Leicester, between 1991 and May 31, 1997.

Having taken three months away from playing football during May and August of this year, he moved to Birmingham City F.C. in August 1997, achieving a regular place thanks to a lingering injury to Ian Bennett in November 1998. However, soon enough he found himself struck by injury, and found himself unable to aid the team until he was released in May 2001, moving to Bolton Wanderers F.C. in October.

Whilst at Bolton, Kevin often trained at West Bromwich Albion with Bolton's goalkeeping coach Fred Barber, as it is nearer to his Midlands home.

Phil Brown, who currently works alongside the player-goalkeeping coach as a manager at Derby County F.C. signed Kevin Pool on July 12, 2005 during the 2005-06 season at no cost. It is likely - at the age of 42 - that Kevin Poole will end his career at Derby County.
