Well Society goes worldwide
After the initial Open Meeting ten days ago, the club have received notes of interest in the ‘Well Society from all corners of the globe.
Calum Benson from the Republic of Ireland was one of the first to signal his intent and was quickly followed by Phil Andrews, all the way from Melbourne, Australia.
Speaking to motherwellfc.co.uk, Phil said, “The formation of the ‘Well Society is a fantastic initiative and one which cements the club into its community, wherever we are in the world.
“I have been in Melbourne now for sixteen years now but I am a lifelong ‘Well fan. All my family are still in Wishaw and when we visit every couple of years I drag my partner and daughter along to the games, though the 0-0 draw at Hamilton in the freezing weather last New Year nearly put an end to that forever!”
Further interest from down under came from Charlie Greenhill, another expatriate living in Oz, who quipped, “There is a saying in Australia about the country but it can be equally applied equally to the Well: ‘You can take the boy out of Motherwell but you can’t take Motherwell out of the boy.’”
Emails of interest have also arrived from the Middle East, North America and Eastern Europe as well as a massive response locally both in and around the Lanarkshire area and beyond.
Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said, “The feedback and interest we have had from Motherwell fans has been absolutely terrific and, in almost 100% of the cases, very positive and supportive.
“We truly believe we are doing something groundbreaking, certainly in SPL terms. We have the drive to become Scotland’s biggest family and community club and with each register of interest we receive via email, it takes us one step closer to our goal.”
