With no games for the first team this week, head down to Newlandsfield this Thursday to see the U19s take on Finnart in the league.

Kick off at 7pm.

Pollok U19s v Albion Rovers U19s

We are delighted that this Thursday, the Pollok U19s will play their league match against Albion Rovers at Newlandsfield with a 7pm kick off.

After Sunday’s hard fought 3-1 win against Cumbernauld Utd, the ‘lok maintained their position at the top of the table. With just 7 games left this season, the U19s have a 4 point lead from Clydebank in 2nd with Thursdays opponents Albion Rovers in 3rd.

This season Scott Johnson, Mouhamed Niang, Tony Coutts and Nathan McGarvey have all joined up with the first team squad so it would be great to see a big crowd at Newlandsfield on Thursday to support the boys and see some more possible stars of the future.

Kick off is 7pm and admission is free.

Academy duo make the step up

Nathan McGarvey

Pollok are delighted to announce that Nathan McGarvey and Tony Coutts have joined the first team squad from Pollok Under 19’s.

They join fellow academy players Mohamed Niang and Scott Johnson who have both made first team appearances this season.

Speaking on the news of the signings, Pollok FC President Iain McFarlane had this to say;

“It’s testimony to the great work of the academy and first team coaches. It’s a significant step for Pollok FC on our journey to establishing a player pathway and will act as a real encouragement to the younger kids at the academy.”

Tony Coutts

Coutts, a central defender and McGarvey, a midfielder, are integral parts of the 19’s squad and will join up with the first team squad for the remaining league games and West of Scotland and Central cup campaigns.

In the summer of 2017, Under 19’s captain Mohamed ‘Sena’ Niang initially signed on a dual contract and made his Pollok debut in the Sectional Cup win against Arthurlie in August. He has since made nine league appearances and two cup appearances.

‘Keeper Scott Johnson made his Pollok debut earlier this year in the Scottish Cup win against Rossvale, keeping a clean sheet in the process. He also made his league debut in the recent draw with Beith.

In other news, goalkeeper Derick Moore, who had been loaned to Maryhill, has been released by the club.
