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.

Pollok are delighted to announce the loan signing of defender Jordan McMillan from Dumbarton until the end of the end of January.
McMillan, who started his career with Rangers, has gone on to make 100 senior appearances with the likes of Hamilton, Queen of the South, Dunfermline Athletic and Partick Thistle.
Jordan joins up immediately and will be available for tomorrow’s visit of Largs Thistle.
The PFC Christmas Draw is taking place at 2pm in the Lok Pavilion this coming Sunday (22nd Dec). All returns are accepted up until then.
Lok have drawn East Region side Fauldhouse United at home in the Macron Scottish Junior Cup 5th round, with ties to be played on the 25th of January 2020.
The West Region has dropped the remaining fixtures of the league season and the Lok ones can be found here. There are dates that are left blank for Junior Cup ties. One fixture of interest is our away visit to Clydebank will be midweek under the lights at Holm Park. Lok’s season is due to wrap at the end of March – with the pyramid demanding a prompt finish to the league season due to play offs (by mid April), this is be a dry run pointing towards that. Fixtures Secretary Kennie Young outlines his thinking here. It is also worth pointing out that Jan-March is notorious for games being off so the likelihood of any Lok players looking out the passports for their holidays on April 1st would be a foolishly long shot!
In the run up to Christmas, the club is asking the Pollok support to bring along a small bag of non perishable food items to one of the next 3 home matches to be donated to local food banks.
Non perishable food and basic toiletry items are welcome and at the moment the food bank are particularly in need of long life milk, diluting juice, tinned fruit/meat/vegetables and fish, pasta sauce, tea, coffee, sugar, toilet rolls
The Pollok support have generously donated to the foodbank over the last few Christmases. Bags can be dropped off at the pavillion at the next three home games listed below.
22nd Nov – Troon
7th Dec – Rossvale
21st Dec – Largs Thistle
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!
After beating Ashfield yesterday, Pollok have been drawn away to Gavin Friels’ Dalry Thistle in the West of Scotland Cup 2nd Round. This game will be played on the 11th of January 2020.
