June 8, 2009 – Newlandsfield Park, Glasgow
Another Evening Times Cup tie and a bit more entertaining this time.
Pollok and Talbot are amongst the strongest junior sides in Scotland and the standard of play was excellent, especially considering the arduous schedule of games for both sides recently.
Talbot scored first and each side sustained a controversial red card apiece in the first half. Pollok came on strong in the second half and won through thanks to a trio of goals from the inside right channel.
Scoring – 0-1 McIlroy, 1-1 Macaulay, 2-1 Mackay, 3-1 Macaulay
