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.

David Barron to miss time

During the first half of yesterday’s match David Barron sustained an injury to his elbow. He was taken to hospital and has been kept in overnight where he will undergo surgery today. He will spend at least another day or two in hospital. Thanks to the physio staff at yesterday’s game and all the staff at the hospital for their care.

Everyone at Pollok would like to wish Div all the best and a speedy recovery.
