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 140 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.

Thank you [posted 20/09/18]

A big "thank you" is owed by the club to Scottish Power for its excellent and speedy response to being told about a tree having fallen on to one of its substations sited on the ground.  After being told only yesterday, during the day, the tidy-up work was done overnight, last night, with the impacted area then taped-off so that the metal fencing could be repaired today.  Top job. 

   

Storm Ali damage [posted 19/09/18]

The club's grounds saw damage caused by Storm Ali as it passed through the central belt today.  A sightscreen was toppled, as were numerous branches and tree limbs, with a tree falling on to the Scottish Power substation sited on the ground.

Shawlands Academy Festival of Sport [posted 15/09/18]

Grant Cathcart reports on our involvement at Shawlands Academy's Festival of Sport today.  "Local sports clubs were in attendance today at Shawlands Academy for a southside festival of sport, highlighting clubs and opportunities available locally.  Representing Poloc, the brothers Hanif, Cathcart and Mehmood along with Zakir Siddiqui and Shahan Raja gave a three-hour cricketing demonstration via the joy that is Kwik Cricket.  Kids of varying ages dropped in and out (and one dad, whose leg-side sweeps hinted at his West Indian cricketing pedigree), learning about the game, and smacking Ahmed-Raza around the ground (well that may just have been Zakir!).  Hopefully we've switched some kids onto the game and we'll see them over the coming months at indoor training.  Thanks again to the guys for turning out."

Autumn ground work day [posted 15/09/18]

A big thanks to groundsman Scott McCutcheon and those members who came along today to help him today with the main ground clear-up work and work on the square (see below).  Thanks, too, to Paul Brannan and his park staff for their help in moving pallets of loam and solid tining.  Invaluable assistance.  Today's work was the culmination of a full week's activity by Scott; a great effort.

End-of-season tidy-up [posted 10/09/18]

This Saturday - the 15th - we have an end-of-season tidy-up day where - amongst other things - we'll work with groundsman Scott McCutcheon as he does his end-of-season work on the square, as well as other ground work and clubhouse tidying-up.  Start time 10am - all members, no matter age, are invited to come along and help.  It's your club, and your help's needed!
