Just the Goals

Pollok are on our travels once more this weekend in the WOSFL Premier Division as we head to Guy’s Meadow, Cumbernauld to face Kirkintilloch Rob Roy.
Last weekend would see Pollok involved in one of the most talkative matches of the weekend, in an enthralling 3-3 draw with league leaders Auchinleck Talbot. In the end Pollok were unlucky not to hold out for all three points with the eight men who remained on the pitch. The Pollok goalscoreers were Adam Forde and a double from the penalty spot for Ryan McGregor.
As the drama unfolded at Newlandsfield, Rob Roy faced a late call off as their match with Darvel was postponed due to the weather. The call off left Rob Roy sitting 11th in table with a record of 6 wins, 1 draw and 6 defeats, with 19 points in total. The goals have been spread around the Rob Roy team so far, Scott Walker leads the way with 4. Pollok remain in second place three points behind Talbot.
Rob Roy were formed in 1878, one of the oldest clubs in the WOSFL, the club were based at Adamslie Park for many years but have been sharing with Cumbernauld since 2014 as they await a new stadium in Kirkintilloch. The Rabs have won the scottish Junior Cup on 3 occasions, 1921, 1943 and 1962. Their last trophy was the Central League Cup in 2017. Former Pollok player Chic Charnley had a short spell at Rob Roy, as did Marvin Andrews, Stevie Chalmers, Joe McBride and George Young to name a few former professional players who have wore the red and black.

Pollok manager, Murdie MacKinnon gives his thoughts on the match ahead, “I anticipate a tough game against a youthful and well organised Rob Roy side. They have been in good form and have been picking up results along the way. Stewart will have them fired up and knowing him will have a well thought out game plan.

“It’s up to us to ensure that our standards remain high and that we go out and deliver on Saturday. We have set the bar in recent months and we can’t fall below that.”

Murdie has the task of fielding a strong team given the suspensions and injuries the club has faced recently.

“Of course there will be some changes to our team in light of injuries and suspensions but you won’t catch us complaining about that. We will make the necessary changes and be looking to go out and win the game.” Murdie said.

“We have good players at the club who are raring to go so there will be absolutely no excuses.

“I am again looking forward to what is always a very competitive game. Over recent seasons these games have been high quality and played in a great spirit on both sides.”

Please note that kick off for this match is now 1:30pm.
