Ex-Aberdeen striker Robbie Winters is proving age isn’t a barrier after penning a contract until the end of the season with West of Scotland non-league cracks Pollok, writes Stephen Coutts.

The 40-year-old hitman, recently left Lowland League side East Kilbride FC to re-sign for Tony McInally’s team.

Last season he played for Rossvale Juniors and was an integral part of their West of Scotland League Central District Second Division title side - the club’s first silverware in their short non-league history.

When their season was complete he was released to join Pollok, and lifted his second silverware of the same season, the West of Scotland Super League First Division.

He signed for his hometown team, Kilby, but that was shortlived and he left after three weeks later due to a ‘difference of opinions’ with gaffer Billy Ogilvie.

The striker is showing no signs of slowing down and said: “I’m 40 now and if I can help my teammates by talking and playing along with them and if they want any extra training then I’m available for them.

“I’m just using my experience and hopefully I’ll score a couple of goals along the way.”

Boss McInally added: “You would think with his age he would be dampening down but he’s not and he just wants to play.”
