It’s another big game in the WOSFL Premier Division as Pollok welcome Kilwinning Rangers to Newlandsfield. Third versus fourth, a point between both clubs, it should be another cracker.
Last weekend Pollok overcame Rossvale at Newlandsfield in a tight game, some fine goalkeeping from Rossvale’s Craig Gordon, kept the score to 1-0, after a beautiful edge of the area strike form Derek Esplin that rifled into the top corner. This match brought us level on games played with Kilwinning who were in South Challenge Cup action, when they beat Ardrossan Winton Rovers 7-0, Ally McColm scoring a hat-trick.
The Buffs record in the league so far sees them with a record of 8 wins, 4 draws and just the one defeat, scoring 35 and conceding 12, their defeat was away to Cumnock, losing 1-0.
Kilwinning were formed in 1899, they became the first Ayrshire side to lift the Scottish Junior Cup in 1909, they would have to wait a hundred years to win it a second time, a 1-0 win over Kelty Hearts would see the famous old trophy go back to Kilwinning. The club have been managed by Chris Strain since 2014 and feature former Pollok player, Carlo Monti amongst their squad.
The last meeting between the clubs took place on 2nd November 2019, it was to be Kilwinning who left Newlandsfield with all three points, as a Carlo Monti goal was the difference between the sides.
There will be a food bank collection before the game at the Pavillion, anything you can donate would be appreciated.
