Spiers joins the Grounds team

Motherwell FC has appointed Stuart Spiers as Assistant Groundsman to Paul Matthew.

Stuart joins the club after previous experience as an award-winning Head Groundsman at Livingston FC between 2009 and 2015.

Stuart qualified in 2007 and served his apprentice at the prestigious Dalmahoy in Edinburgh, before switching to Almondvale.

He left Livingston two years ago to take up a post at Kirkaldy Golf Club, but the lure of getting back into professional football and working with Paul Matthew was too much to turn down.

He has replaced Stuart Harker, who left back in late July the to take up a position outside professional football.

The commitment and buy in from the club and the skill and knowledge of the Head Groundsman convinced me that this was the right time to get back in to football. I’m excited to get started.”

Speaking to motherwellfc.co.uk, he said: “I am absolutely delighted to be at Motherwell and working with the team here, which has built a tremendous reputation over the past few years.

“The commitment and buy in from the club and the skill and knowledge of the Head Groundsman convinced me that this was the right time to get back in to football. I’m excited to get started.”

Head Groundsman Paul Matthew added: “It’s really important that we continue to build on what we’ve achieved so far, and a part of that is always looking to improve your team.

“We had a number of excellent candidates, but Stuart’s knowledge and experience of professional sports turf, and his willingness, love and desire for the post shone through and he was the outstanding candidate.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and expand on some of the success we’ve had with the pitch at Motherwell over the next few years.”
