Welcome to Pollok…Scott Anson

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!

Home tie for Lok vs. Rosyth

In this evening’s Macron Scottish Junior Cup 5th Round draw, Pollok were pulled out of the hat at home to East Region side Rosyth. The Fifers have had a difficult 2018-19 thus far and find themselves at present towards the foot of the East Region South Division table with 12 points from 11 games. They have had more joy in cup ties so far, winning last weekend at home to West Calder United in their Thorntons East League Cup group stage match. They also managed to hit double figures back in September in the DJ Laing East Region Cup at home to Coupar Angus, running out 12-1 winners. This is their first season at a new home – Lok played them (and won) at the now vacated Recreation Park in the Ronnie Lowrie era. They now play at the Fleet Grounds, should a replay be required.

Full draw (ties due 26th January 2019)

Girvan v Clydebank
Craigmark Burntonians v Lochee United
Kilwinning Rangers v Thornton Hibs or Renfrew
Largs Thistle v St. Rochs
Cambuslang Rangers v Troon
Rossvale v Hurlford United
Blantyre Victoria or Auchinleck Talbot v Rutherglen Glencairn
Pollok v Rosyth

Lok land Henry

Pollok are delighted to announce the capture of Jamie Henry on a contract until the end of the 2018-19 season. The Clydebank-based central midfielder has been without a club since leaving Brechin City in August. Having played for a number of sides in the West at Pro Youth level, Jamie joined Aberdeen when he was 15, became captain of the youth team and remained there until 20, enjoying a loan spell at Arbroath during his time at Pittodrie. After moving on, he spent last season back at Gayfield during the first half of the season and finished it with Annan Athletic. He impressed on his debut, winning man of the match no less, so here’s hoping Jamie enjoys more of the same in the weeks, months and years ahead. Welcome aboard!
