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.”

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.”
