Brian McNeil

It is with great sadness and sorrow that Pollok Football Club reports the passing of our goalkeeping coach Brian McNeil.

Brian joined the club in late 2022, following Stewart Maxwell, with whom he had worked alongside for seven years at Kirkintilloch Rob Roy. Stewart paid tribute to his friend on social media following the sad news:


Brian was well known throughout the football community. Likeable, kindhearted and loyal, were just a few of the big guy’s traits. A devoted family man who will be missed by many. On a personal level, Chris McFadyen and I will feel this loss more than many. At the moment, I cannot describe the loss the big man is to us. Love you big man, and rest easy.

The thoughts of all at the club are very much with his wife Sandra, their family and friends, our coaching staff among them.
