Jay Nelson

DOB: 16th March 2001 (Glasgow)

Pollok FC Sponsor: Paul Regan

Attacking midfielder Jay arrived at Lok in January 2023 from Cambulang Rangers on an 18-month deal. His youth career took in stops at Wolves BC, Red Star YFC and Drumsagard Football Academy before joining up with Cambuslang Rangers youth set-up in June 2019. He spent the ‘covid’ season with St. Cadoc’s before rejoining the Cambuslang Rangers set-up in July 2021 and quickly made an impression on the Somervell support. Football is in the blood for Jay, the son of former Scotland semi-pro and Junior Scotland international maestro Martin Nelson who spent his autumn years in Lok colours.
