Ahead of this weekend’s Scottish Cup match, Auchinleck have issued the following advice to supporters attending Beechwood.
Pollok have been drawn away to Auchinleck Talbot in this afternoon’s Scottish Junior Cup 5th Round Draw.
The match will be played on the afternoon of Saturday February 17th with a 2pm kick off.
Tomorrow’s Scottish Cup tie against Rossvale has been postponed due to a blanket of ice and snow on the Petershill Park surface.
We will provide further details of the rescheduled tie once arrangements have been made.
After last weeks flurry of new fixtures for January, the club can confirm that we will finish up the first month of 2018 with a home match against Hurlford United in the league. The Hurlford fixture follows a home match against Arthurlie on January 6th before we hit the road to play Clydebank on the 13th and then Rossvale in the Scottish Junior Cup on the 20th.
We look forward to seeing you at Newlandsfield next year!
This weekends Scottish Junior Cup tie against Royal Albert has been moved to Newlandsfield with a 2:30pm kick off.
The match was originally scheduled to be played at Tileworks Park, Stonehouse.
Pollok have been drawn away to Royal Albert in the second round of the Scottish Junior Cup.
The tie will take place at Tileworks Park on Saturday October 28th, k.o. 2.30pm
The two teams have recent history in the competition as they were paired together in the third round of the draw in 2015. Pollok ended up 4-1 winners that day as they took one step closer to what would end up to be a run to the final.
This will be the first of two meetings as the clubs will face each other again in the West of Scotland Cup. This tie is scheduled for November the 11th.
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.
Last season Pollok received a bye in the first round and went on to draw Glentanar of Aberdeen in round two before being defeated after a hard fought replay against eventual finalists, Auchinleck.
Three time winners
Pollok’s last success in the trophy came in 1997 but they have reached the final as recently as 2016, where they were unlucky to lose out on penalties to Beith Juniors.
