Contract extension for Gal

Pollok are delighted to announce that club captain, Paul Gallacher, has penned a contract extension which will keep him at the club until the Summer of 2022.?

Gal joined Pollok in 2014 from Queens Park, where he had spent six years, and has since made 195 appearances for the ?Lok, scoring 16 goals.?

We caught up with Gal (at a safe social distance) to get his thoughts on the next few seasons and why he wanted to commit himself to Pollok. 

?I?m delighted to have agreed an extension to my contract. It was a very easy decision to make. I?ve loved my last 6 years at the club and I feel that I have unfinished business as all I want is to bring success to the club.?

It?s a disappointing end to the season as I would have loved the opportunity to make the Scottish Cup Final and hopefully go on and win it. It?s something I have been so determined to achieve, particularly after coming so close in my second season here.??However, we all fully understand and agree that people?s health and well-being is the most important thing at this point in time.

Looking forward to next season, I feel we have a great squad to build on. A squad which in my opinion is yet to reach its full potential. I am feeling positive about the league restructure and look at it as an opportunity for Pollok to be successful and compete at the highest level possible.?

We can’t wait to see Paul and the rest of the team back on the Newlandsfield turf in the future.

Forres tie for the Lok / fixture change

The match will take place at Logie Park on Saturday 28th of September.

Welcome to Pollok…Dom Larkin

Pollok can this morning confirm that Dom Larkin has officially signed for the club. The towering centre half is yet another academy graduate to come through the Pollok Pathway following in the footsteps of Tony Coutts, Mikey McWilliams and Mouhamed Niang.

Murdie was delighted to add another graduate to the squad;

Dom had an outstanding season last year where he helped the 21’s win the Lady Darling Cup and he was also named their Players Player of the Year. We’re looking forward to working with him and hope he develops into another graduate the club can be proud of

Welcome to Pollok, Dom!

Welcome to Pollok…Chris Dallas

Pollok Football Club are delighted to announce Chris Dallas as the sixth new signing of the summer.

Prolific striker Dallas, 32, counts Darvel, East Kilbride Thistle, Arthurlie, Albion Rovers and most recently Glenafton, as his former clubs. A Scottish Cup and West Premier winner in 2016/17, Chris has scored over 50 goals in the past three seasons at Glenafton.

Lok boss Murdie Mackinnon was delighted to add more firepower to the squad and had the following to say;

“Chris is a proven goalscorer in the Premiership and as well as goals, he’ll bring a physical presence and experience to our attack. He’s got good pace and has been one of the best strikers in the juniors in recent years.”

Welcome to Pollok, Chris!

Welcome to Pollok…Gerry McLauchlan

Pollok FC can confirm the signing of former Queens Park player, Gerry McLauchlan.

The 30 year old centre back made over 30 appearances for ?The Spiders? last year and has previous senior experience with Brechin, Ayr Utd, Arbroath, Queen of the South and Cowdenbeath.

?Lok gaffer Murdie Mackinnon was delighted to bolster his defence for the forthcoming campaign;

?Gerry is good capture for the club and is very experienced. We needed a bit of competition and depth at centre back, which we saw towards the end of the season when we played two full backs at centre half. We had a good defensive record last year but there?s always room for improvement.?

Gerry already has links to Pollok as his father (also Gerry) was assistant manager to Jim George between 1992 and 1995.

Welcome to Pollok, Gerry!
