Renfrew v Pollok – build up

Renfrew have been busy in the transfer market over the summer, bringing in Ryan Borris (Glenafton), Bob Campbell (Shettleston), Jamie Cunningham (Beith), Craig Dallas (Kilwinning), Richard Henry (Yoker), Ricky McIntosh (Shettleston), David McKenna (Beith) and on the eve of this game, Fraser Chisholm from Troon, his 3rd spell at the club.

Departing New Western Park are Graeme Brown (amateurs), Lee Davison, Jamie Docherty (Arthurlie), Colin Forbes and David Quinn (Glencairn).

Their Sectional League Cup campaign sees them, like Lok, unbeaten in 90 minutes but they lost their last game on penalties at home to Greenock Juniors, following a 3-3 draw. Prior to that they beat both Port Glasgow (1-0) and St. Anthony’s (4-0).

Pollok win Best Sporting Initiative

Pollok FC were delighted to be announced as the winner of the Best Sporting Initiative at The Glasgow Awards earlier this week at a glittering ceremony at the city’s Crowne Plaza hotel.

The award recognises the various community initiatives we have been involved with over the past year including the food bank appeals and work with local schoolchildren.

 

Fancy being a sweeper for the Lok?

The ground team are looking for some volunteers this Saturday to get the terraces clean and ready for the big kick off on Saturday afternoon.

If you can spare a few hours from 8am on Saturday, drop down to Newlandsfield to lend a hand.

We’ll then kick off the 2018-19 campaign with our Sectional League Cup match against Maryhill at 2pm.

MTLN!

Game off – Pollok v St Andrews Utd

Unfortunately our friendly match tomorrow against St Andrews Utd has been cancelled. This is due to a combination of players returning to fitness from injuries and holidays.

We’d like to thank St Andrews for their understanding and wish them well for the season ahead.

Our next fixture is this Wednesday against Fauldhouse at Benburb’s New Tinto Park.

Longmuir pens contract extension

Pollok are delighted to confirm that Jordan Longmuir has agreed to extend his stay at Newlandsfield for a further two years keeping him at the club until Summer 2021.

Jordan signed for Pollok from Colville Park in 2014 having had previous spells at Bathgate Thistle and Bo’ness Utd. Since signing, Jordan has made the number 1 jersey his own with some memorable moments over the past 4 seasons.

Jordan won consecutive Pollok Player of the Year awards in 2015/16 and 2016/17.

Buy a Brick update

Last season we took orders for the second batch of commemorative bricks. We are sorry that these are not up at Newlandsfield yet. We are working on rectifying this over the summer.

We are planning to process this order in a couple of weeks time so if you wish, you still have a chance to get your brick in this batch to mark a special occasion or give the Pollok FC fan in your life a gift that will see their name in with the bricks at the Newlandsfield Pavilion, which was formally opened almost 40 years ago on July 30th 1978.

The forms will be available at the upcoming friendly games and bricks are priced at £35. If you require any further information, drop us an email on info@pollokfc.com

Thank you again for your support, MTLN!
