Just a reminder to supporters that the Clydebank v Pollok fixture scheduled for this Saturday, March 16th has been switched and will now be played at Newlandsfield. The reverse tie will be rescheduled later this season, to be confirmed.
Ahead of Saturday’s match, we would also like to remind all Pollok and Clydebank supporters that absolutely NO alcohol is permitted inside Newlandsfield Park under any circumstances.
All supporters are cordially requested to comply fully with this, as neither club is responsible for any expense or disappointment resulting from attempts to ignore it.
The game kicks off at 2pm. Admission is £6 for adults, £3 for concessions (OAP’s and under 16’s).
The second batch of commemorative Pollok bricks have been added to the pavilion wall at Newlandsfield and they look great. You can see them ‘in the flesh’ this Saturday as we host our Glasgow neighbours, Clydebank.
If you missed out last time, orders are being taken for the third batch of bricks. These would make a great gift for the special Pollok fan in your life or even for yourself to remember ‘the happiest days of our lives’, watching the ‘lok.
Orders will be taken for the next four weeks and forms can be obtained from the pavilion on matchday. John Hickey will be taking orders on matchday. Bricks are priced at £35.

News has reached the Pollok FC website of the passing of supporter and travel club secretary Robert ‘Bob’ Howden, following a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He regularly attended matches throughout the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s until his artritis prevented him from doing so.

The match referee has called off today’s match due to high winds in Largs. The game will be rescheduled at a later date.
Pollok are delighted to announce the capture of Jamie Henry on a contract until the end of the 2018-19 season. The Clydebank-based central midfielder has been without a club since leaving Brechin City in August. Having played for a number of sides in the West at Pro Youth level, Jamie joined Aberdeen when he was 15, became captain of the youth team and remained there until 20, enjoying a loan spell at Arbroath during his time at Pittodrie. After moving on, he spent last season back at Gayfield during the first half of the season and finished it with Annan Athletic. He impressed on his debut, winning man of the match no less, so here’s hoping Jamie enjoys more of the same in the weeks, months and years ahead. Welcome aboard!
