Welcome to Poloc Cricket Club


Welcome!  Please enjoy this virtual look round our club - but, better still, why not come and see us?  Founded over 135 years ago, we're a family-centred club with our own ground in picturesque Pollok Park on Glasgow's southside, members coming from all backgrounds and from across the ethnic and cultural spectra, all taking an active part in club life.  As well as competitive and social cricket for juniors and adults, there are all-weather tennis courts, spectator seating and well-appointed clubhouse.

The club's sides play under the name, NVT Poloc and NVT Shawholm, NVT Group being the club's main sponsor - more about it and the club's other funders and supporters can be found in the Sponsors and partners section.  NVT Poloc plays in the Cricket Scotland League administered by the Western District Cricket Union ("WDCU") and NVT Shawholm plays in that league's reserve division.  In addition, Poloc Panthers and an Academy XI play in both the WDCU Sunday and Evening Leagues, and no fewer than five junior sides play at five age-group levels in the West District Junior Cricket Union leagues and cups, as well as in national cup competitions.

Junior fixtures, 2017 [posted 12/01/17]

The WDJCU released its league and cup fixtures today, and we've got these online on the various junior age-group pages.  The club has entered teams in the Under 11, 13, 15, 16 and 18 Leagues, in addition to all the cup competitions.  The addition of participation in the Under 16 League means that the opportunities for matchews for our young players is even more comprehensive.  The full league fixture list can also be seen online here.


Abtaha Maqsood [posted 10/01/17]


Everyone at the club was delighted to hear of Abtaha Maqsood's selection for the Scotland Women's squad to take part in the upcoming Womens ICC CWC qualifying tournament in Sri Lanka.  Abtaha will leave with the squad, for the UAE in the first instance for warm up matches, on the 29th of January, before heading to Sril Lanka where the side is in a group with South Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea.  Congratulations to Abtaha.


New gate [posted 14/12/16]

The club is delighted to unveil its new gate at Shawholm.  For many years access to the car park has been unrestricted, with this being - at times - frustrating to members.  However thanks to the team of talented craftsmen at Pollok Park, we are pleased to say that we have a new gate,.....and what a gate!  Beuatifully crafted in metalwork, the gate has the club's name on it as well as bat, stumps and balls!  Paul Brannan's team has done a brilliant job, and big "Thank you" is owed to them.  The gate - pictured below - will be open during practice and match times, with it being locked at certain other times.  We think it adds something of lasting value to the policies, as well as being of practical help to members. 




Club helmets [posted 13/12/16]

The club is again ordering Masuri helmets with the club crest embroidered on them.  The bulk order will be made at the end of December and anyone wanting to purchase a helmet should contact Keith Young (07802-951913).  The helmets come in two ranges: the Vision Series ELITE, and the Vision Series TEST.  And each of the two ranges has a Titanium or Steel grille option.  The prices and a size guide is below.  Anyone wanting too see what the finished, embroidered, helmets look like should also contact Keith Young (07802-951913), or - of course - ask one of the players who already has one!
