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.

O’Donnell arrival bolsters squad

The Lok website can confirm that Pat O’Donnell has now signed for the club and is available for selection for the Lanark United cup tie this week. The 22 year old central defender has spent the past couple of seasons with the Lok u21 side and prior to that was with various youth clubs including St. Cadoc’s YC, Giffnock SC and St. Peters Juveniles Giffnock North. Welcome aboard!

In other news, Lok have recalled Mikey McWilliams from his loan to Petershill and he too is available for selection this week.

Potential bus to Forres

The club is looking into the possibility of running a bus to Forres, but there will need to be a certain level interest to make it viable. It is too early to be able to look at pricing but a full bus is likely to be cheaper per head than one only half full.

If you are interested in taking up the opportunity to travel by bus up to Forres (game date is 28th September), please email the below ASAP:

Forres tie for the Lok / fixture change

Pollok will travel north to Forres Thistle in the Macron Scottish Junior Cup Second round after the two teams were paired with each other at this afternoons draw at Hampden Park.

The match will take place at Logie Park on Saturday 28th of September.

Due to the Scottish Junior Cup 1st Round draw involving Benburb, Lok’s previously scheduled game on that date against the Bens will now instead be a game at Newlandsfield against Kilbirnie Ladeside.
