Fixture News: February fixtures announced

Our fixtures for February have now been announced and three league fixtures can now be pencilled into your 2018 Pollok Calendar.

On February 3rd, we’ll welcome Auchinleck Talbot to Newlandsfield in what will be our first league encounter with them this season. The game has a 2pm kick off which will leave you a couple of hours afterwards to don your kilts for the Pollok FC Ceilidh which takes place that evening in Loks Bar and Kitchen. Tickets for the ceilidh will be on sale at home matches over the next month.

The Lok then travel to newly promoted Girvan on February 10th before welcoming current league and cup double winners Glenafton on Saturday February 24th.

All February fixtures are scheduled for 2pm kick offs.

After these games we will still have league fixtures due to be scheduled for the following ties

Home: Beith Juniors, Cumnock, Kilwinning Rangers, Kirkintilloch Rob Roy

Away: Arthurlie, Auchinleck Talbot, Hurlford United

Pollok staying home for Christmas

As a result of the 3-3 draw away at Glasgow Perthshire in the Scottish Cup last Saturday, we will now face the Keppoch Park men at Newlandsfield in a replay this Saturday (2nd Dec, 1:45pm KO). This replaces the original fixture against Rob Roy which was originally scheduled for this date. The cup replay is the first of 3 home fixtures in December as the ‘Lok round off a busy 2017.

On the 9th of December we will welcome Auchinleck Talbot to Newlandsfield for the first meeting of the two clubs this season. This game also has a 1:45pm kick off.

To round off the year we will face Kilwinning Rangers in the return fixture of the league calendar. The two clubs met earlier this season with a brace from Stefan McCluskey sealing the 3 points for Pollok in a hard fought 2-1 victory.

All three games kick off at 1:45pm and are £6/£3 entry.

And if you think a Saturday watching the ‘Lok may hinder your Christmas shopping then never fear, copies of the 2018 Pollok club calendar will be on sale at all home matches costing £8.

UPDATE: POLLOK RECEIVE A BYE

The draw for the first round of the Scottish Junior Cup will take place this evening at Hampden Park.

A number of sides will receive first round byes to whittle down the entry list to 128 teams with the junior sides competing in the Senior Scottish Cup also joining at the second round.
