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 south-side, 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, a unique winter Golf Section, spectator seating and well-appointed clubhouse with spacious bar, function room, pool, table tennis, darts and catering facilities.

The club's sides play under the name, NVT Poloc and NVT Shawholm, NVT 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 both 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.



Latest news and club notices




Indoor coaching and practice [posted 27/02/15]


The fifteenth indoor winter coaching and practice session takes place this Sunday, and is for juniors aged Under 15 and 18, and Academy players.  The session is between 1pm and 3pm.  Anyone with any questions should get in touch with Keith Young (07802-951913).


Winter golf [posted 27/02/14]

Tomorrow sees winter golf return to the club, with the annual game against Haggs Castle GC being played round the Policies. 


Vandalism [posted 25/02/15]

It was disappointing to discover, this morning, that the clubhouse has been vandalised.  Three of the front windows (see below) have been broken, with glass debris littering the spectator seating area.  Fortunately it appears that it was "just" an act of vandalism, and not a break-in, or attempted break-in, and in each instance only the outer of the two panes in the double-glazed unit was broken meaning that the clubhouse itself remains wind and water-tight.  Thanks to Russell Lauder and Kenneth Robertson for their work today in dealing with the matter, for liasing with the Police, and beginning the process of organising repair work. 




Tuesday senior indoor practice [posted 10/02/15]

Tuesday night indoor sessions started this evening, and it was encouraging to see such a healthy turnout.  These sessions, in addition to the Sunday afternoon sessions for juniors and Academy players, will continue until practice moves outdoors in early April. 


Cricket Scotland Under 18 Scottish Cup draw [posted 09/02/15]


The junior cup draws were completed this morning with the release of the Under 18 Scottish Cup draw.  The 'Loc were handed a first-round bye, and await the winners of the Ayr versus Greenock opening round match, hosting the winner at Shawholm.


Cricket Scotland Under 13 and 15 Scottish Cup draws [posted 06/02/15]


Hot on the heels of the ECB Cup draws, the draws for the Under 13 and Under 15 Scottish Cup were made today too.  The Under 13 draw saw the 'Loc given a home tie against the Dark Side, whilst the Under 15 draw saw the club drawn to play Helensburgh, also at home. 



NatWest ECB Under 13 and 15 cup draws [posted 06/02/15]

The draws for both the Under 13 and Under 15 ECB Cups were made this morning.  Both draws see the 'Loc slated to play in the preliminary round, with West of Scotland the opponents in both.  The Under 13 clash will be at Hamilton Crescent, the Under 15 hosting West at Shawholm. 


Junior fixtures [posted 02/02/15]


The WDJCU has published league and cup fixtures for season 2015, and these can be seen in the various age-group sub-sections of the Junior section of the website. 



Pre-season matches [posted 30/01/15]

We've added another pre-season match to our schedule, agreeing with West of Scotland to play them on Sunday the 26th of April, at Hamilton Crescent. 


Annual membership subscriptions [posted 26/01/15]


December's AGM approved the annual subscription rates for 2015 and these can now be paid after subscription notices were sent out to members by Secretary Keith Sheridan today.  Paying subscriptions as soon as possible is helpful to the club, particularly in the off-season months when - as with most clubs - cash flow is tightest.


To assist with paying subscriptions the club offers paying by credit or debit card using a secure PayPal facility.  To use this facility, simply click on the Pay subscriptions page link in the left-hand menu list and follow the instructions on the page this takes you to. 


Quiz Night thanks [posted 24/01/15]


Tonight's Quiz Night at the club, and we're grateful to our friends at the Strawberry & Spice Garden and New Turban Restaurant for their generosity and support with tonight's catering.  If you've not been to one or other, or both, before, make sure you take the chance to pop in over the next few weeks!
