Welcome to Pollok, Jordan!

One in, one out, another extends their stay

Pollok can this evening confirm the signing of Josh Weir. 25 year old Josh, a forward, featured for the Lok in last weekends 2-0 victory over Hurlford Utd and scored the opener in a recent bounce match against Yoker. He was previously at Barshaw Amateurs. 

Welcome to Pollok, Josh!!

In other squad news, we are delighted to confirm that midfielder Del Esplin has agreed a contract extension until Summer 2022. Del joined Pollok last summer on a two year contract and has already featured 30 times for the club, scoring 3 goals. 

Finally, Pat O’Donnell, who recently joined Yoker Athletic on loan has been released from his contract at Pollok. We’d like to wish Pat all the best in the future. 

Loan updates

Pollok can confirm that following the conclusion of his earlier loan to St. Roch’s, Pat O’Donnell will start off 2020 as a Yoker Athletic player. He scored in their emphatic win over Ardeer Thistle on the 18th of January. Mikey McWilliams has also had his loan at Shotts extended for a further three months. All the best to both players with their clubs.

Welcome to Pollok…Jordan Shelvey

The club are delighted to announce that Jordan Shelvey has joined the club from Clydebank on a contract until June 2022.

Jordan, a striker, has scored over 50 goals for Clydebank including 17 in 30 appearances last year. He was Clydebank’s Player and Players Player of the year in season 2017-18.

On the signing, Lok boss Murdie MacKinnon had the following to say;

I’m delighted to welcome Jordan to Pollok. A fantastic signing for the club! He’s one of the most dangerous strikers in the Premiership. Not only does he have a track record for scoring goals, he’s had his fair share of assists in his time at Clydebank. He’ll fit in and complement the strikers already at the club. Jordan is the type of player who’ll excite the fans and I hope can help bring success to the club.

Jordan joins up immediately and will be available for this weekend’s trip to Bellsdale as the Lok take on Beith.

Welcome to Pollok, Jordan!

Boyle heads for Darvel

Having been transfer-listed recently, Danny Boyle has now completed his move to West Championship side Darvel. The Ayrshire side have undergone a bit of a renaissance this past six months with an influx of players from the now defunct Colville Park E set-up, led by manager Mick Kennedy, and bolstered by a number of top ex Seniors and Juniors. Former Lok coaching staff members Brian Whelan and Stuart Ralston are also on board at Recreation Park while Zander Cowie and Allan MacKenzie are among their playing staff.

All the best in your move, Danny. All of his Lok career stats can be found here.
