Welcome to Pollok, Chris!

Lumsden signs up – player departures

The club are delighted to confirm that ex-Clydebank goalkeeper Josh Lumsden has signed up on a permanent deal. Josh impressed as a trialist towards the end of last season making 5 appearances between the sticks and will join up with the rest of the squad for pre-season training. Welcome to Pollok, Josh!

We can also announce that forward Stefan McCluskey has left the club to sign for Dumbarton in the Scottish League 1. It is the third time he has linked up with Sons gaffer, Jim Duffy. Stef made 54 appearances in his two seasons at Pollok scoring an impressive 27 goals.

Also leaving the club at the end of their contracts are Ross Brash, Colin Williamson ‘keeper Scott Johnson and Bryan Young who has retired from football.

We wish all departing players all the very best for the future.

Retiring Young

It’s a farewell message to Bryan Young who has decided to hang up his boots at the age of 32. Bryan joined the club in the summer of 2017 from Auchinleck Talbot where he had spent 12 seasons rampaging down the Beechwood wing. Fittingly, his last game was at that very ground. All the best Butch!
