  1. Heard some rumours of Adam Forde leaving Pollok to go to Darvel.
  2. Christie to Pollok has been doing the rounds for a few months but I’d heard he was off to join Millar at St Cadocs. Gary isn’t one of the players that the club announced as having signed up for next season before the shutdown, but I know some more had signed on again but hadn’t been announced. Would certainly be disappointed not to have Gary playing for us next season.
  3. Has he re-signed for Glencairn again? There’s an Esplin to Pollok rumour every summer.
  4. Did a turn for Pollok for half a season. Passing and dead ball delivery is excellent, scored a cracker against Arthurlie as well.
  5. Played the last two games and been our best player in both, so hopefully it isn't true.
  6. Andy Patterson played a few games as a trialist as well. Only Rowan, Hepburn and Morrison really made an impact, but 3 guys I'd still like to have had playing for us.
  7. Sorry to see him go. Pre-injury we were worried about him stepping back up to the seniors. He's different class. After the injury he never got back in the team regularly but never let us down when called upon. A complete midfielder at this level. Will do the passing, tackling and will score you goals.
  8. No he signed for next season. First I've heard that he wouldn't maybe be coming back. Maybe some agreement has been reached with stenny.
  9. Sorry to see Byrne go, it's a shame neither him or Sideserf were right footed and our defence would have been sorted.
  10. Gormley signed for next season and Rowan was released due to work commitments I believe. Would be great to have him back in the future.
  11. It's in the Evening Times today he's rumoured to be going to Troon.
  12. All the best for the future. I'm very anti-pyramid; but Bonnyrigg are a club I'll be keeping an eye on really have the potential to do something going forward into the SFL. Sorry to see you go though. My favourite ever game of football took place at New Dundas Park, a great junior venue.
  13. Still no update on the Central semi or final? Surely it makes sense for every team still involved that the winners of Glencairn v Pollok face Perthshire on Saturday and the final is Wednesday next week?
  14. I assumed our Wednesday game was deleted as they were gonna play Neilston on the Wednesday, then the Saturday fixture was deleted for whatever reason. Absolutely insane stuff . Can only hope till be a week tomorrow now.
  15. It is refreshing to see someone at the top ask everyone else for ideas. Personally I'd like to see: - The Scottish played early-mid September, October, November, then no Scottish games until mid-late February (I realise this needs SJFA approval and discussion with all regions. - Have a date set for each Cup final, so for an example this season could have been the West final could be the 9th of June at Newlandsfield, the Central final is the 13th of June at Cambuslang, the Ayrshire final on the 13th at Meadow Park and the ET final at Benburb on the 16th. Sectional final an October Sunday at a large neutral ground. - Midweek league fixtures in August. - By doing the above you plan the season around the cups and the league fixtures fall into place around them. Play two rounds of the west minimum before Christmas. - More interaction over P&B and Twitter would be excellent. Regularly ask fans for feedback. Even a feedback survey once a season that any junior supporter can participate in would be great. - Start the season with big games, advertise it as a derby weekend. Pollok v Arthurlie, Talbot v Cumnock, Beith v Kilbirnie and drum up local interest day one. - Choose one Scottish game per round to cover and put on an SJFA youtube channel. Focus advertising on that. - Friday/Sunday games. One each a week if possible. A big tie, attract the neutrals. - Focus advertising on the great product that we have, particularly in the west. There won't be a more competitive league in Scotland next season than the 16team west premier. Use this. - Get fans of all ages involved with the Scottish final, particularly as it's usually two west teams. Drum up local interest, a small portion of free tickets available on social media competitions, award local people with hospitality at the final.

  17. Carlo did do a turn for Pollok, no doubt about it he kept us up twice. Though in his last spell he didn't play to the same level as he had previously consistently. A move was probably best for him and Pollok. Would I take him back? At the moment no. The balance of the team is a lot better and we have plenty of players in his position but never say never. I would like to see the Buffs win the league for Davie Winters, Frye and Carlo. They were all excellent for us.
  18. Salcoats v Pollok will be the 7th of May at the earliest, unless the fixtures get backdated. The final was the 27th of May last year.
  19. It makes no sense at all. Still hope to see it scheduled for the first Saturday in may but if the winner of the tie was to go a few rounds further they'll be playing three times a week to get the final played before next season along with league games and other regional cups.
  20. If he notices his mistake, be it by finding it himself or reading P&B or being told by the officials of one of the clubs then great. If not its ridiculous as no doubt with our only unscheduled league games being Talbot and Hurlford, and our other unscheduled tie being the Saltcoats game, we'll have one of those midweek. Not exactly fair for supporters and players trying to get from Glasgow or further afield to Ayrshire when it could have been done on a Saturday!
  21. Strange one, be waiting until May to play the fixture otherwise. Would be great if the fixture could be added tomorrow!
  22. Having gotten to know Robert over the last few years I can't think of a better guy to do the job. Down to earth and a proper junior man. Really hope the clubs vote him in. There has to be change next season, even a bi-annual release of fixtures and constant dialogue through twitter/sjfa website with clubs would be a massive step forward. Just a pity he's an Arthurlie fan
  23. No truth in it, the club is committed to the long term development Tony and his team began. Please enlighten me on the size of the Pollok budget? I had no idea it was the same as a professional team!

    Fluid Fans?

    The clubs original ground was in Pollok Park as the Maxwell estate granted the club land to play on. The club was 30 years old when we moved to Newlandsfield. I doubt the people who ran the club at the time thought changing the name was an issue.
