Ross Pollock - 100 Appearances

Ross Pollock made his 100th appearance against Anniesland Old Crocs, the 43rd player to reach this milestone.

Ross made his debut in Germany against Wattenscheid in April 2014 and made a scoring debut in the 4-4 thriller and also scored in the epic penalty shoot-out which we won 7-6.

Only five appearances followed the next season before Ross became a regular fixture in the team, mainly at left back. Such has been his consistency that he has played in all of the last 67 games played.

Goals were few and far between before this season but he already has seven this season with four of them being direct from corners. This is a remarkable achievement but still got him in trouble with the Gaffer as the shout, “stop trying to score every time”, was heard recently.

Not all of his corners have been successful as he says, “I have also been credited with the “worst corner of all time” this season when I played a short corner to Ally McNaught - which I believe is the reason it was so bad, not the fact we got counter attacked and conceded from it!”

As he also is taking most of the free kicks his assist record is through the roof at the moment as well as his seven goals.

Obviously one of the best things about the team are the away days and Ross says, “my favourite away day was probably East Fife when Antics McQuarrie was holding on to a segregation chain, only for it to snap and send him tumbling down the stairs !”

Of course Ross isn’t just the guy with the Bobby Charlton hairstyle who can put in an excellent cross ball, oh no, he’s also the Secretary, Treasurer, Kit Manager, Media Director and anything else that needs to be done guy. I guess you could say that Ross, who when he was a boy used to dress up as a flamboyant 70’s Radio1 DJ has now (then) become Top of the Pops.

A modest guy who gets on with the job on and off the pitch who says, “proud to play my part in helping run the team. Although I’m rumoured to be the tightest ever QPSFC Treasurer - some say Tam from Still Game has a picture of me up on his wall!”

Ross is an excellent team and Club man who deserves to reach the 100 milestone and hopefully there are more unsuspecting goalkeepers caught out by his inswinging corners in the future !

Ross will lead the team out as captain on Saturday at Lesser Hampden v Alloa.
