Double signing boost for Lok

Stewart Maxwell has added his second and third signings this week as he looks to put his mark on the team. First up was Kenny Barr and he is followed by 21-year-old attacking midfielder Jay Nelson. Lang born and bred, Jay has been with Cambuslang Rangers’ West of Scotland League side for over 18 months and spent the ‘covid’ season with the St. Cadoc’s development side. His footballing education was spent with various youth clubs in the east end. Lok fans might recognise his proud father were he to take in any games watching his boy.

Speaking to the website about the new arrivals, manager Stewart Maxwell said: “Jay and Kenny are two young, talented midfielders. They will bring energy and technical ability to the squad.

“They are both at a great age and being at a big club like Pollok can help them improve and take their development to the next level.”

Welcome to Newlandsfield, Jay and Kenny!

Farewell to Dylan Dykes

It can be confirmed today that Dylan Dykes has left the club to rejoin St. Cadoc’s. He originally joined Lok from St. Cadoc’s in March 2022, making his debut against Hurlford United and his first goal for the club arriving from the penalty spot at Troon a month later. In total, Dylan started 13 games for the club, came off the bench a further 3 times and scored four goals. Dylan had a serious health scare in the autumn that saw him take a sabbatical from playing, meaning that his last competitive game for the club came at Buffs Park against Kilwinning Rangers.

Speaking to the PFC website, manager Stewart Maxwell said: “I would just like to wish Dylan all the best. I’m sure he will be a big success in St. Cadoc’s promotion bid.”

Captain David Brownlie was sad to see his teammate move on. He told us “I’ve known Dykesy since I was 15 and got nothing but good words to say about him.”

“His mentality and postive attitude after receiving his diagnosis, from the outside you’d never know he was suffering from such a serious illness but his personality got him through the tough times and helped us as a team come together to beat Annan in the Scottish Cup.”

“I wish him all the very best in his next steps for his career.”

All at Lok wish him well for the future.
