Bryan Dingwall Returns to Newlandsfield

The club will make a special presentation to Lok legend Bryan Dingwall this Saturday, before the club's league match at home to Irvine Victoria.

Dingwall, who scored 118 goals in 157 appearances for Lok, retired from football at the end of last season.

Supporters wishing to show their appreciation to Bryan for his service to our club should be present at Newlandsfield by 13:30.

The club respectfully asks as many supporters as possible to come along to give Dingy a warm welcome on his return.


Squad News

Pollok have moved to strengthen the midfield before tomorrow afternoon’s opening league clash away to Greenock, after injury put both Willie Howie and Alan Lindsay on the sidelines for an extended period.

John Sweeney, recently released by Clyde, will need no introduction to the Newlandsfield faithful. John scored 7 goals from midfield in 52 appearances for Lok before leaving for senior football, and went on to captain Clyde for 3 seasons.

John told pollokfc.com: “I had four amazing seasons at Clyde, but football being football, it was time for me to move on. I had a number of offers from senior teams and interest from across the juniors; but I knew from my previous spell that the buzz of playing at Newlandsfield is infectious, so when I heard that Pollok had called, I knew there was only one option for me. It’s going to be a tough season, but I’m ready for the challenge and can’t wait to get started against Greenock tomorrow.”

Tony McInally pulled off a second major transfer coup today, capturing the signature of versatile midfielder Findlay Frye from last season’s Scottish Junior Cup runners-up Glenafton. The Lok faithful will most likely remember Findlay from this stunning goal he scored at Newlandsfield for Irvine Meadow IX (viewers of a sensitive disposition should look away now).

Tony McInally was emphatic in his praise for both players: ‘I’m incredibly pleased to bring both of these talented and dynamic midfielders to the club. I’m sure supporters will see quickly what they will bring to the team’.

Both are available for selection against Greenock tomorrow.


Greenock v Pollok—Match Arrangements

We have been contacted by the officials from Greenock Juniors, who have asked us to advise supporters in pursuit of refreshment on Saturday that a licensed bar is available within their ground, open from 12:30.




Squad News

Pollok Football Club has added two new faces to its squad this week.

Ryan McBeth, a midfielder, has signed for the club after impressing in recent matches as a trialist. Thomas Clark, also a midfielder, has stepped up from the ranks of Pollok’s juveniles. Both will be available for selection for Saturday’s match against St. Anthony’s.

Talking to pollokfc.com, Tony McInally spoke highly of both “Ryan is a versatile player who’s not afraid to run at players and he has an eye for goal. We’re really pleased to bring Thomas through from the juveniles too, he’s been training with us since pre-season, and he’s got bags of potential, as I think anyone who’s seen him play for us as a trialist would agree. Both guys have shown a great attitude in training, and I think they’ll both bring something a bit different to the squad.”

Heading in the opposite direction, the club is disappointed to report that forward Carlo Monti has parted company with the club.

Carlo has completed a successful trial with Maltese Premier league side Żebbuġ Rangers, who have offered him a full-time deal which he has accepted.

Tony McInally said “Obviously we’re really disappointed that Carlo has chosen to go and to lose a player of his calibre. He made it clear when he signed that he harboured ambitions to return to full-time senior football, although neither of us had expected an opportunity to arise so quickly. The timing of his decision doesn’t do us any favours, but I feel we are acting in good faith by allowing him to pursue his ambition of playing full-time football elsewhere. We would like to wish Carlo every future success in his football ambitions abroad.

Craig Borland has also parted company with the club, citing work committments as the reason for his departure.


Kids Go FREE at Newlandsfield this Saturday

Pollok Football Club is delighted to offer free entry to all under 16s for this Saturday’s (23rd August) home fixture against St Anthony’s.

Speaking about the offer, club President Stuart MacDonald stated: “our matches against St Anthony’s are always keenly contested affairs, played in the right spirit, and we are delighted to be able to offer free entry to children.  We hope that this offer in part repays the loyalty of our existing fans and also attracts new visitors to our ground.

“We look forward to welcoming both existing and first-time supporters alike to Newlandsfield Park on Saturday.”

Kick off for the match is 14.00, and Pollok FC play at Newlandsfield Park, Newlandsfield Road, immediately next to Pollokshaws East train station and the Morrisons store at Newlands.


Defibrillator Training Update

Last Sunday, 27 July, Club President Stuart MacDonald (right) received a heart defibrillator from Claire Farley of the Scottish Ambulance Service on behalf of the club.

The Club is very grateful to the British Heart Foundation and a very generous Club member for funding the purchase of the defibrillator.

Nine Pollok members/supporters undertook a three hour training session covering both CPR and the defibrillator.


Andrew Reid - Funeral Arrangements

Andrew Reid, Pollok’s oldest supporter and life-long club member, has passed away shortly before his 95th birthday.

Onshi, as he was known to many, intermittently served on the committee between the 1950s and 1980s and was well-known for his outspoken opinions. He was a true Pollok supporter, who contributed much to the club and maintained a healthy interest in it right up to his final days.

Andrew’s funeral will be on Friday 18th July at 9.45am at the Linn Crematorium.


Squad News

CARLO MONTI (51 starts, 4 subs, 44 goals)

Prolific marksman Carlo, who turned 24 earlier this week, returns for a second stint at Newlandsfield. A former Scotland youth internationalist, he progressed through the ranks at Celtic before departing for Greenock Morton where he became a first team regular. After a short spell in Amateur football he signed for Pollok in 2012 and became an instant hero with the ‘Lok faithful. 44 goals in 55 appearances earned Carlo another crack at Senior football with Dundee last term.

Carlo told pollokfc.com “It’s amazing to be back at Pollok. Newlandsfield has been like a second home to me since I signed first time round, and when I was at Dundee, I tried to get down to as many Lok matches as possible. I had overtures from a few junior teams, but when I spoke to Tony I knew there was only one place I wanted to go. It’s a huge season ahead of the club, and I’m champing at the bit to get started.”


Squad News

Two more addtions to Tony McInally’s Pollok squad.

TAM HANLON (3 starts, 3 subs, 1 goal)

A familiar face to ‘Lok fans, 32 year-old winger Tam is back for a second spell at Newlandsfield. He came off the bench against Blairgowrie to net a debut goal in December 2011, but featured only five more times before returning to previous club Shotts Bon Accord. He has also turned out for Lanark United, Baillieston and Albion Rovers.




22 year-old defender Paul makes the short hop to Newlandsfield from Hampden Park having progressed through the ranks with Queen’s Park. The 6’3” full back first appeared for their first team during season 2009/10 and has since made 132 appearances for the Spiders, where he played as first-choice right back last season. Tony McInally said “We’ve been really impressed by Paul having kept an eye on him last season. He’s been outstanding in pre-season training, and we’re really delighted to have signed him. He’s the kind of player who fits our profile perfectly.”
