Welcome to Pollok…Danny Boyle

Pollok are delighted to confirm the signing of centre back Danny Boyle from Kirkintilloch Rob Roy.

The 6’4″ defender started his career with Campsie Black Watch and finished under 21 football with Drumchapel Utd before signing for junior side Cumbernauld Utd. He then signed for Rob Roy making over 50 appearances. His CV also includes a short stint at Auchinleck Talbot.

Danny said;

I’m really looking forward to running out at Newlandsfield in the black and white of Pollok. I know that the supporters are very passionate and demand high standards which is what I aim to bring.

Danny will join up with his new teammates at the first day of pre season on Saturday.

Welcome to Pollok…Ewan McNeil

Pollok can today confirm that Ewan McNeil has become manager Tony McInally’s 3rd signing of the summer. The 24 year old full back who left Stirling Albion earlier this month featured in all but one of Albion’s games last season. Ewan signs on a two year deal and will join up with his teammates as they return from their break next Saturday for the beginning of pre-season training.

On signing, Ewan said;

I’m really excited to sign for Pollok. It’s a big club and there’s some really good players here. I had options to stay in the SPFL but once I had met with Pollok a few times I knew this was the right move for both football and personal reasons. It will be good to meet everyone next week at pre-season training and I’m looking forward to being part of the team. Hopefully we can make this coming season a successful one!

After coming through the ranks at Rangers, McNeil also counts two seasons at Norwich City and spells with Brechin, Berwick and Clyde on his footballing CV.

Welcome to Pollok, Ewan!
