Sena departs Newlandsfield

Pollok can confirm that Mohamed ‘Sena’ Niang has now left Pollok and has signed for Scottish Championship side, Partick Thistle.

Sena graduated from the Pollok United Soccer Academy in the summer of 2017 after having captained the U19’s the previous season. As the first academy graduate to make the step up, he made his first team debut against Arthurlie in a 1-0 Sectional League Cup win and made his first league start a few games later away to Kirkintilloch Rob Roy in the league. He finished the 2017-18 season with 20 appearances.

Sena has made 9 top team appearances this term and he scored his first goal for the Lok in a 4-1 win against Maryhill.

On his move, Sena had the following message for the Pollok faithful;

It’s been a pleasure to play for Pollok. It’s a journey in my life that I am never going to forget as it gave me the platform to go and play the best sport in the world and finally achieve my dream, to be a full time footballer.

I would like to thank the fans as they’ve been great to me since the day I made my debut. I always gave 100% because of how much love I have for the Pollok fans and my teammates.

I would like to wish all my teammates and coaching staff all the best for the remainder of the season. I will miss playing at Newlandsfield, but now that I live closer to the ground I’ll be coming to most home games as a fan to cheer on the lads.

I’d also like to say a massive thanks to the academy from mini kickers all the way to the Under 19s for always been supportive and cheering my name. You guys mean a lot to me. A special mention to the squad and coaches from last years Pollok u19’s, a brilliant bunch of lads who were always there for me when I needed support. 

MTLN!

Commenting on the move, manager Tony McInally had this to say;

All of us in the dressing room are delighted that Sena has managed to secure his dream move of playing full time professional football after securing a deal with Partick Thistle. We have worked hard every week with Sena on all aspects of his game so it is fantastic that Thistle have seen this improvement and potential in the lad to offer him a great deal.

On a personal level, I’m really pleased that his teammates worked with him and helped Sena every week to provide support and experience to him on and off the pitch to develop into the player he is today.


From the dressing room we would like to wish Sena all the very best in the next step of his football career. I am sure he has a really bright future in the professional game if he continues to listen, learn and improve his overall game.

All the best Sena.

Echoing the manager’s sentiments, on behalf of everyone at Pollok we’d like to wish Sena the very best.
