It may be the close season for the majority of clubs across Scotland but for Pollok we have the Kilmarnock Pie WoSFL Cup semi-final this weekend away to Hurlford.
Blair Park hasn’t been a good venue for the ‘Lok, our only win there was in the West Of Scotland Cup final of 1987 against Auchinleck Talbot. Kilwinning Rangers await the winner next week.
Both matches this year between the clubs have ended in draws, back in August it was 0-0 at Blair Park then in March it finished one a piece at Newlandsfield. Seven of the last 16 games played between the clubs has ended in a draw, so a close game could be on the cards.
Hurlford dispatched of Arthurlie in the previous round, winning 3-1 at Blair Park, in the same round Pollok beat Clydebank 1-0 at Newlandsfield.
Hurlford started their WoSFL Cup run at home against Vale of Leven, the game finished 1-1, with Hurlford winning 6-5 on penalties. Kilbirnie Ladeside were the next visitors to Blair Park and were beaten 2-0. Next up was a trip to James McGrory Park to face St Rochs, leaving with a 2-1 win to set up their quarter final tie with Arthurlie.
Hurlford were formed in 1912, they are managed by Darren Henderson. The last trophy they picked up was the West of Scotland Junior Cup when they won it 2018. They have won one Scottish Junior Cup, lifting the famous trophy in 2014.
Several former players have played for Kilmarnock, David Bagan, a cup winner with Killie, Davie Sneddon, a league winner with Killie in 1965 and a man of many clubs, Mark Roberts.
