Pollok FC are delighted to announce that teenage forward Mikey McWilliams has signed for the club on a permanent basis through to the end of the 2019-20 season. He joined the Pollok United set-up towards the end of last season from Vale of Clyde YFC and after signing on a ‘delayed transfer’ basis from the 21s, has been a regular in the matchday squad so far this season. Back in August, he made his debut against Largs Thistle, then started his first game in November’s draw with Petershill and scored his first goal down at Valefield against Kilbirnie in December.
Pollok are delighted to confirm that three players have extended their contracts until the end of next season.
Summer acquisitions Danny Boyle and Danny MacKenzie are joined by recent signing Jamie Henry in agreeing terms for season 2019-20.
Danny Boyle has made 25 appearances in a Lok shirt, only missing one game, since his move from Rob Roy. His counterpart MacKenzie has featured 16 times for Pollok scoring two goals.
Former Aberdeen youth captain Jamie Henry joined the club at the tail end of last year and has made 7 appearances so far in the Lok midfield.
Earlier this month the club released striker David Gormley to allow him to sign for amateur side Nico’s. Aaron Millar also departed the club at the end of his loan period from Clyde. Once again, we’d like to wish both players well for the future.
The Pollok FC website and official matchday programme seeks a keen and reliable match reporter to cover games. The ideal candidate will be able to attend the vast majority of Lok games, home and away, have a firm and confident grasp of written English (spelling, punctuation and grammar) and be able to submit written copy via email within a reasonable timeframe. This is a voluntary position but does offer a platform to showcase your work.

Aaron Millar’s loan from Clyde has now expired, and the forward has now returned to Broadwood. Having initially made his debut at Newlandsfield vs. Rob Roy back in August, he found game time difficult to come by at Pollok and has now been loaned out to Arthurlie by the Bully Wee. Best of luck for the future, Aaron.
Pollok FC are delighted to announce the arrival of Scott Anson to Newlandsfield on a deal until June 2020.
The striker will be familiar to many Lok fans having featured at Petershill, Neilston, Shettleston and most recently at Cumnock where he scored against Pollok in the Scottish Cup earlier this season. He started his career at Hamilton Accies where he worked alongside Lok gaffer Murdie MacKinnon;
Scott and I go way back to our days at Hamilton Accies. He will add much needed competition in the forward areas and brings a threat in the air. Scott is a proven goal scorer at Premier League level with 16 goals this season alone.
Scott has also played for Kilmarnock, Annan, Montrose and Bo’ness.
Happy New Year and welcome to Newlandsfield, Scott!
