Weekend football

QUEEN’S Park host Elgin on Saturday at Hampden.

The Spiders remain third place with a game on hand and could stay in touching distance of league leaders Rangers with a win.

The Hampden side defeated Annan last week in a 3-2 thriller.

Queen’s Park scored from the penalty spot after 25 minutes when Anthony Quinn scored. Anthony McParland’s added a second through a stunning free-kick from 20 yards.

Aidan Connolly scored the third on 68 minutes and the game looked safe.

However, late goals fom Andrew Donley and Michael Daly in the 89th and 90th minute gave QP a scare before the final whistle.

Pollok head to Possil to face Ashfield on Saturday.

Lok, who have been out of action since November 24th, will return to the field at Saracen Park on 1.45pm.

Meanwhile, Eaglesham Amateur Football Club has received a £600 financial boost from TalkTalk.

The club will be sponsored by home phone and broadband provider for the next 12 months. The funding will be used to buy new kit for the team.

Elsewhere, in ladies football, champions Glasgow City have secured their third signing of the close season with the announcement of the arrival of Cheryl Gallagher.

The 21-year-old striker is a business student and joins from Rangers.

City head coach, Eddie Wolecki Black said, “I am looking forward to the pre-season and watching not only Cheryl but also our other new signings and see how they integrate with the players we already have at the club.”
