A midweek free of football for a while has whetted the appetite to see The Lok back in action. After our 7-0 win last weekend in the Scottish Junior Cup at Newlandsfield against Maybole, Darvel will visit Glasgow on Saturday in league action.
Last weekend Pollok had six different scorers in the win over Maybole, however it was a 4th minute own goal that got the goalscoring under way, followed by goals from McCann, Grant, McGregor, Weir, Graham and that man Forde continuing his fine start to the season with another goal. Forde has now scored 7 this season, followed by Graham on 5.
Darvel were in league action last weekend as they left Clydebank with a 2-2 draw. This result left Darvel 5th in the table on the same points as Pollok, the Ayrshire club have a game in hand. Their current record is won six, two drawn and one loss, scoring 22 and conceding 9. Their solitary loss was away to Kilwinning Rangers.
Darvel were formed in 1889 and are currently managed by Michael Kennedy, they gained promotion to WoSFL Premier Division after being declared joint winners of West Region Championship with Blantyre in 2019-20. The club reached the Scottish Junior Cup final in 1976 but fell at the final hurdle, losing 3-0 to Bo-ness United.
For the last meeting between Pollok and Darvel, we have to go back to 9th February 2008 for a West of Scotland Cup tie, Pollok ran out 10-3 winners at Newlandsfield, four goals from Dingwall, three from Downs, with goals from Newall, Logan and Hyslop taking the scoring to ten.
