Just another brick in the wall

The second batch of commemorative Pollok bricks have been added to the pavilion wall at Newlandsfield and they look great. You can see them ‘in the flesh’ this Saturday as we host our Glasgow neighbours, Clydebank.

If you missed out last time, orders are being taken for the third batch of bricks. These would make a great gift for the special Pollok fan in your life or even for yourself to remember ‘the happiest days of our lives’, watching the ‘lok.

Orders will be taken for the next four weeks and forms can be obtained from the pavilion on matchday. John Hickey will be taking orders on matchday. Bricks are priced at £35.

BSC’s Barr arrives on loan / Longmuir update

Pollok unveiled new goalkeeping signing Stephen Barr in the away match at Largs Thistle, with him making his debut in the Lok goal. He arrives from BSC Glasgow on loan until the end of the season and also counts Clyde and Queen’s Park among his clubs. As a schoolboy, he was in the Hamilton Academical youth set-up. He has made 6 appearances for BSC’s first team this season.

Related to this, Jordan Longmuir has requested to take some time away from Pollok FC and this has been granted. All at the club wish Jordan well and look forward to seeing him return in due course.

Morton signs for Lok

Pollok can confirm the signing of midfielder/forward Jordan Morton on a deal through to the summer of 2020. Morton was one of a significant number of players that left Cambuslang Rangers in January after the departure of manager Paul McColl and almost immediately came aboard at Lok as a trialist, but with him unable to take part in cup ties due to being ‘cup-tied’, there was no immediate need to push a deal through. The formalities are now concluded so welcome aboard Jordan!

He came through the youth system at Clyde but at 16 signed up with Hearts where he remained for four seasons. His only top team action for the Jambos was against Auchinleck Talbot in the Scottish Cup in 2011-12. He had a loan spell at Cowdenbeath then signed for Championship-level Livingston for 2012-13. At the end of his sole seaon at Livi, he made the permanent switch to Cowden and after one season there, headed off to Europe to sign up with Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Bulgaria.He returned to Scotland in February 2015 to join Airdrie, spent time loaned to Annan in his second season a Diamond, and in2016 began his junior career which to date has taken in Shettleston, Cumnock, Lang and now Lok.

McWilliams signs up / loaned out!

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.

Mikey will however now spend the next month on loan at promotion-chasing League 2 side Ashfield and everyone will wish him all the best with that move.

Trio agree contract extensions

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.
