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.
