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, an Academy XI plays in the WDCU Sunday League, a Midweek XI plays in the same organisation's Evening League, and no fewer than eight junior sides play at six age-group levels in the West District Junior Cricket Union leagues and cups, as well as in national cup competitions.  And after you've had a look around here at Poloc online, why not leave us a message in the Guestbook.

Welcome! [posted 10/04/14]

Tonight saw our two overseas players meeting up with a few of the guys for the first time at a chilly outdoor practice session.  Despite the wind-chill factor though the session was well attended with over twenty players put through their paces by Blue Knee and Youngy.  Fielding and fitness were the orders of the day!  Good start to what we hope'll be another enjoyable and successful season.  Welcome to the 'Loc boys!



Matches off [posted 08/04/14]

This weekend's first three pre-season matches have all been cancelled off due to the weather.  Sunday's away fixture at New Cambusdoon against Ayr was called off this morning, with a decision on the two home games - against Glasgow Accies and West of Scotland, on Saturday and Sunday respectively - following later in the day.  


First outdoor session [posted 06/04/14] 

This Tuesday evening - from 6.30pm - sees the first outdoor session for senior players, and those older juniors aiming to playing senior cricket this season.  Weather-permitting on Tuesday we will be doing a little bit of work around the ground - getting the nets hung on the all-weather practice net bays, moving the screens out in to position, and so on.  We will also be dealing with pre-season admin', including updating any registration photo's or other details.  Discussion will take place about the leagues we've entered and our practice regime.  Players should also - if they have not already done so - pay their membership subscription on Tuesday or reach an agreement with the club as to when this will be paid.  Remember that it is easy to pay subscriptions using the website's PayPal facility, and that the club continues to operate a "no pay, no play" rule to ensure those representing the club are also contributing to it.  Let's have a good turnout on Tuesday evening please; as ever, more hands make light work!

We've got a new range of playing, training and leisure kit for 2014 - have a look online. You can also see samples by getting in touch with Keith Young


Manufactured by Lords International, the kit (pictured left, too) comes in at great new prices and looks fantastic.

Annual membership subscriptions - DUE NOW [posted 09/03/14]


Saturday's AGM approved the annual subscription rates for 2014 and these can now be paid.  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. 



Stat's [posted 08/03/14] 

The Cricket Europe Scotland website has now got full statistics, by club, player and game, for all SNCL and CSL matches.  It's an interesting read, and well worth a visit.  You can find the Poloc stat's here.
