“He did a great job for us at Shotts, but in addition, he’s been mixing it with the best midfielders in the game for a few years now, and we’ll benefit from his experience.

McInally: “Left back has been a problem area for us since we joined the club and we are delighted with capture of one of the best left backs in junior football.

“Mark played for us at Shotts previously and has matured and developed into a top class junior now.
His best years should be at Pollok and he is a talented player with great technical ability.”

Dynamic forward Derek Hepburn has joined Pollok after the out-of-contract player agreed to join the Newlandsfield men for the coming season.

He is a player who has been on our radar for some time and we hope we can coach and develop to reach his undoubted potential.”

Signing News: Three Familiar Faces Re-Sign

While the ink dries on deals for some new faces at Newlandsfield, we are delighted to inform supporters of three familiar faces who have agreed terms to remain at Lok for the Southside club’s return to the top league.

They are, in alphabetical order, winger Kevin ‘Taz’ Bradley, midfielder Kieran McAleenan and defender Gary Wild. 

Tony McInally told pollokfc.com: “One of the things I swore I would bring back to Pollok was stability, and I think the fact that we’ve held onto ten or eleven of the guys who played consistently for us last season shows that.

“It’s a big year coming up, and if you look at the teams who’ve been competitive in the top league over the years, you’ll see they’re usually settled squads, with a few changes and tweaks each year.

“That’s the philosophy we’re bringing back to Pollok.”

Meanwhile, going in the opposite direction, the club have released Jamie Barclay, Guiseppe Capuano, Jamie Darroch, Ryan McBeth and Graeme McLaren.

Tony McInally asked pollokfc.com to publicly offer his thanks to the outgoing players for their efforts at the club and to wish each of them all the best in future at their new clubs.

There will be further announcements later in the week, so come back and check the site every day!

Pollok Juveniles - Ones To Watch

As Pollok prepare to take on the U21 side in a friendly, we take a look at three of the ‘Juves’ players that will hope to make an impact on Tony McInally.

 

First of John Alexander’s men to feature is Top Goalscorer, Striker, Andrew McLaughlin. Andy has finished the season with 30 goals in 28 games - a record our own David Winters would be proud of. Juveniles Manager, John Alexander says the only way to describe the 20 year olds’ goal record is “fantastic”

The next of the ‘Juves’ we focus on is 22 year old Andy Kyle. The left-sided player who moved from Eastwood U21s at the start of the season is known for his wide range of passing and free-kick ability. Andy will hope to take any cahnce possible to catch Tony McInally’s eye.

 

Our final player we have noted to look out for is Juveniles Captain, Darren McNeil. The 22 year-old plays in the central role and has been describe as the engine of the midfield. McNeil has been training with the first team recently and hopes for a move to the compete in the Premier League.

 

We hope fans will be able to come and see our young prospects and support the Lok v Lok match on Saturday 6th June - Kick Off: 3pm.
