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.

Fixture changes / transfer news

Due to Junior Cup replays, Pollok’s scheduled trip to Rutherglen Glencairn this coming Saturday has been postponed. Glens will instead host Cumnock (idle as Hurlford have a cup replay) and we will welcome Kilwinning Rangers (who had been due to play Glenafton but they will also be in cup action) to Newlandsfield.

The Linlithgow Rose CFC victory has also put paid to our game with Rossvale on 23rd November, so we need to wait and see who we pull out of the hat when the draw is made early next month.

In other news, Dom Larkin has left Pollok to re-sign for former club Castlemilk Dynamo. He made eight appearances for the club and all at Newlandsfield thank him for his efforts in Lok colours and wish him well for the future.

Squad update

Pollok FC can confirm that Pat O’Donnell has joined St. Roch’s on loan a month’s loan, meaning the young central defender will revert to Lok colours in mid October. We wish him well up at James McGrory Park.

Elsewhere, Lok have drafted in 20-year-old Pollok Juveniles keeper Tam McGuire as goalkeeping cover on a delayed transfer basis. He will remain on Lok’s books until the end of the season. He has already been involved with Lok at first team level, featuring in the squad versus Arthurlie in pre-season.

Welcome to Pollok…Dom Larkin

Pollok can this morning confirm that Dom Larkin has officially signed for the club. The towering centre half is yet another academy graduate to come through the Pollok Pathway following in the footsteps of Tony Coutts, Mikey McWilliams and Mouhamed Niang.

Murdie was delighted to add another graduate to the squad;

Dom had an outstanding season last year where he helped the 21’s win the Lady Darling Cup and he was also named their Players Player of the Year. We’re looking forward to working with him and hope he develops into another graduate the club can be proud of

Welcome to Pollok, Dom!

Welcome to Pollok…Chris Dallas

Pollok Football Club are delighted to announce Chris Dallas as the sixth new signing of the summer.

Prolific striker Dallas, 32, counts Darvel, East Kilbride Thistle, Arthurlie, Albion Rovers and most recently Glenafton, as his former clubs. A Scottish Cup and West Premier winner in 2016/17, Chris has scored over 50 goals in the past three seasons at Glenafton.

Lok boss Murdie Mackinnon was delighted to add more firepower to the squad and had the following to say;

“Chris is a proven goalscorer in the Premiership and as well as goals, he’ll bring a physical presence and experience to our attack. He’s got good pace and has been one of the best strikers in the juniors in recent years.”

Welcome to Pollok, Chris!
