Newlandsfield Regeneration

Pollok Football Club is always pleased to receive coverage in the local and national press, and Wednesday’s report in the Evening Times about proposed renovations of Newlandsfield was no exception.

However, the report contained some factual inaccuracies, and in order to ensure that Pollok members and supporters are well apprised of developments at the club, the club would like to explain as clearly as possible the proposed renovations at Newlandsfield.

The club has presently submitted a planning application to demolish the existing refreshment hut building that stands next to the covered enclosure. The intention is to replace the existing building with a larger structure, which will contain a much upgraded catering facility and male and female toilets for the comfort of supporters.

This project is still very much in its infancy, and there are still many barriers to be overcome in order for it to come to fruition. First of all, the application itself will need to be approved before any progress can be made.

If the application is successful a great deal of further work will need to be carried out in planning, design, costing and, most importantly of all, funding.

The club is always looking at ways to improve Newlandsfield, and to make Pollok (and junior football in general) an attractive option for football fans young and old; this work represents a much-needed step in the right direction towards modernising the ground.

Of course, we would not be able to do any of this without the generous support of our members and supporters. We would like to thank you all for your support over the year and aim to keep you well informed about the progress of our regeneration work.
