Ward, 21, becomes the youngster skipper in the Pirates' history, current manager Neil Middleditch having been 23 when he led the side.
Ward said: "It really has been a dreadful season for Poole injury-wise but I am determined to lead by Chris's example.
"He carried the team when I was out with a broken shoulder and now it's up to me to do the same."
