Talbot await Lok in Beechwood cup showdown

Pollok have been drawn away to old foes Auchinleck Talbot in the Traderadiators South Challenge Cup quarter final, the date of that tie being Saturday 2nd April (KO time TBC). This means the league match versus Cumbernauld United will need rearranging.

The draw has also been made for the semi final, with the winner of Talbot vs. Pollok to be at home to the winner of East Kilbride vs. Linlithgow Rose vs. Sauchie. A number of last 16 ties remain to be determined, giving the draw a number of “either/or”s.

The full draw is:

Quarter Finals:

Auchinleck Talbot vs. Pollok

Jeanfield Swifts vs. Spartans

East Kilbride vs. Sauchie Juniors

Bonnyrigg Rose vs. Bo’ness United or Petershill

Semi Finals:

Jeanfield Swifts or Spartans vs. Bonnyrigg Rose or Bo’ness United or Petershill

Auchinleck Talbot or Pollok vs. East Kilbride or Sauchie Juniors

Bankies away in South Challenge Cup

It was a tough draw for Pollok when the South Challenge Cup 4th Round pairings were made earlier this week and Pollok’s reward for beating Harthill Royal in the previous round is a trip to Holm Park to face West of Scotland Premier rivals Clydebank.

In other news, Pollok’s Under 20s have added to their squad by bringing in goalkeeper Logan Lewis, 18, from Easterhouse Football Academy. He made his debut as a trialist against Johnstone Burgh on 3rd December.

Fixture update

Fixtures until the end of the season have now been released by the West of Scotland Football League and can be found on the results and fixtures section of the site. The standout games are almost all in February with Lok visiting Beechwood Park to play Auchinleck Talbot on the 12th, then on the 19th we host Clydebank at Newlandsfield. This crucial run of games ends with another trip down the M77 to face Darvel at their fully refurbished Recreation Park on the 26th. We visit Kilwinning’s new Buffs Park on the 19th of March and the season concludes on the 23rd of April with a game at home to Rob Roy. The season needs a much earlier conclusion than the West Juniors ever did due to the Lowland League play offs.

Revised fixtures released

West of Scotland Football League secretary Kennie Young has an updated fixture list for November and December. For Lok there are two changes: the Glencairn game is now off and we have a blank Saturday and the trip to Largs is now a trip to Beith. Please see the fixtures page for full detail. The changes were made to ensure clubs complete half a season having played one another.

Harthill up next in South Challenge Cup

Pollok have been drawn at home to Harthill Royal in the South Challenge Cup 3rd Round (last 64). The former East Junior FA side joined the West of Scotland League in the close season and are currently in Division 4. This is to be Lok’s first match against the Gibbshill Park outfit. The tie will go ahead on 20th November, kick off time TBC. The Blantyre Vics game as scheduled will now be rearranged.

The full draw is as follows:

Scottish Junior Cup statement

The club can confirm that following the SJFA Management Commitee meeting at Hampden on the evening of Tuesday 5th October 2021, we have been informed of their decision earlier today that we have been expelled from this season’s Scottish Junior Cup and fined £500. 

We are disappointed with this decision, and we are considering the options that might be available to us.
