Hurlford United v Pollok

Brief highlights from Mark Donnelly:

Pollok travel to Blair Park to take on Hurlford this weekend in West of Scotland Premier division action.

The Lok will be looking to get back to winning ways after two losses in a row. Hurlford have only lost once in their last ten matches, a 3-1 defeat away to Auchinleck. Last weekend they left Kilwinning with a point after a 2-2 draw. The Ford are currently sitting 6th in the table with a record of 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses. Jack Whittaker and Paul McKenzie both lead the way in their scoring charts with 9 a piece. Hurlford’s record at Blair Park in all competitions is 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses.

We don’t have to go far back to our last meeting between the sides, just over a week ago in fact. Hurlford won 4-2 at Newlandsfield. The last five matches between the clubs in all competitions, gives Hurlford the edge, with two wins to Pollok’s one and two draws. Last season, both league matches ended in draws between the clubs, 0-0 at Blair Park and 1-1 at Newlandsfield.

Hurlford were formed in 1912 and are managed by Darren Henderson. The last trophy they picked up was the West of Scotland Junior Cup when they won it 2018. They have won one Scottish Junior Cup, lifting the famous trophy in 2014.

Several former players have played for Kilmarnock, David Bagan, a cup winner with Killie, Davie Sneddon, a league winner with Killie in 1965, and a man of many clubs, Mark Roberts.

Glenafton v Pollok

Full highlights from Mark Donnelly:

Brief highlights from Mark Donnelly:

Pollok travel to Loch Park to take on Glenafton on Saturday in the West Of Scotland Premier Division.

Last week Glenafton were in West of Scotland Cup action as they beat Kilbirnie 3-1 at Loch Park, goalscorers were McMullin, McKee and Kerr. The Glens currently sit 11th in the league table, with a record of won 3, drawn 5 and lost 5. In their last five league  matches they have won one, drawn two and lost two. Hugh Kerr and Sean McKenzie lead their goalscoring charts with 13 and 12 respectively.

When Ryan Stevenson was appointed as manager of Glenafton in March last year the club were staring relegation in the face, only for the team to go on a run of 8 wins and 2 draws in the last 13 games to secure Premier Division status. They will hope to go on a similar run this season to move further up the table.

Glenafton were formed in 1930 and originally had black and white as their colours before changing to the more familiar red and white in 1960. The club won the Scottish Junior Cup twice, 1993 and 2017.

We last played Glenafton earlier this season, way back on 13th August when Pollok edged a 3-2 win at Newlandsfield. A Stuart McCann goal and a double from Darren Christie sealed the win on that occasion.

Pollok v Darvel

Edit: Game aff!

It’s a midweek cracker at Newlandsfield as Pollok take on last season’s champions, and current league leaders, Darvel, on Wednesday.

Both teams were away from home last weekend with Darvel away to Irvine Meadow on Friday night and leaving with a 2-1 win. Pollok beat Cambuslang Rangers 1-0 at Somervell Park.

In their last five matches, Darvel have won three, beating Kirkintilloch 4-3 at home and a big result in the Scottish Cup when they knocked out Montrose away 5-2, the aforementioned win over Irvine is the other win. They were beaten at home by Largs 2-1 on 9th November and lost in penalties to Stirling Uni, after a 2-2 draw in the South Challenge Cup.

Darvel currently have a record of 7 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats so far in the West Of Scotland Football League Premier Division. They are three points better off than Pollok and have a game in hand. Last season the clubs met twice, a 1-0 win for Pollok at Newlandsfield and a 2-1 win for Darvel later in the season at Recreation Park.
