Saturday will see a return of the Scottish Junior Cup, as we welcome Maybole to Newlandsfield.
Pollok had a midweek draw at Newlandsfield with Largs and will be hoping to get back to winning ways on Saturday. Maybole were also in action midweek as they travelled to face Whitletts Victoria and were also held to a draw, as the game finished 2-2. Maybole came from 2-0 down, as goals from Euan Smith and Robert Patterson secured the point, to extend Maybole’s unbeaten run to four games.
Maybole currently sit 9th in the WOSFL Conference A Division, with a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats in their 8 games so far, having scored 14 and conceding 13 goals. Formed in 1946, they are based at Ladywell Stadium, they have been managed by Carlo Walker since 2014, their colours are maroon and white. The club’s last trophy was the Ayrshire District League in 2012.
Both clubs don’t face each other too regularly with the last meeting coming back in 2015 when a 3-0 home win for Pollok came on the day the club lifted the league trophy as we gained promotion back to the West Super Premier League having spent a season in the West Super First Division. Pollok will be hoping there is no repeat of the last Scottish Junior Cup meeting when Maybole travelled to Newlandsfield and left Glasgow with a 1-0 win in 2000.
The winner of this tie will travel to Irvine Victoria on September 25th in the second round.
