    Motherwell U19s 2 – 3 Hamilton U19s

    10-man Motherwell crashed to a cruel Cup defeat at home to Hamilton Accies despite equalising twice during the match.

    Former Everton defender Adam Cummins was red carded after just eleven minutes; the scouser was sent packing for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity when he brought down James Martin on the edge of the area.

    By the letter of the law, referee Nick Walsh was correct but the 18-year old can feel hard done to as it was more a clash of legs than a trip as the defender tried to recover against his pacy opponent.

    Andy Ryan put the visitors ahead some fifteen minutes later when he capitalised on some good work down the left to fire home from close distance.

    Both teams traded chances but the score was the same as the teams broke for the half-time interval.

    ‘Well started the second half on the front foot and brought themselves level just nine minutes in. Darren Brownlie worked space for himself on the right flank and his terrific ball across the face of goal evaded everyone until Steve Hetherington arrived late at the back post to slot home from a few yards out.

    Accies got their noses back in front again shortly after; Ciaran Johnston did well to run the channel and found himself in space inside the box. From the angle, he managed to trundle a shot past Ross Stewart in the home goal and Ryan was there to smash home from under the bar for his second of the afternoon.

    Despite looking jaded after playing an hour with a man less, Motherwell continued to battle away and actually looked like the team most likely to score. After some excellent saves from Jonathan Grier, ‘Well eventually got it back to level terms for a second time when defender Ewan Murray soared to head home a Josh Watt corner from the left.

    It was anyone’s game at that stage but it would be the New Douglas Park men who would eventually grab the game’s winning goal with just seven minutes left to play.

    With Motherwell pushing for a winner, Accies won the ball in the middle of the park and immediately broke on the counter attack. James Martin burst forward, drawing defenders towards him before slipping in Andy Ryan on the edge of the area. The impressive striker took one touch to compose himself before drilling the ball beyond Stewart and into the net for his hat-trick.

    It was harsh on Motherwell, who fought hard despite being a man down. Focus will quickly shift towards next week’s game with St Mirren, scheduled to take place next Friday afternoon back at the Creamery Park, kick-off 1pm.

    Motherwell: Stewart, Brownlie, Murray, Cummins, Francis-Angol (Leitch – 87mins), Hetherington, Carswell, Mboa Mekongo (Moore – 76mins), Watt, McGachie, MacDonald (Lynch – 21mins)

    Subs Not Used: Muir, Green, Asghar

    Goals: Hetherington (54), Murray (70)

    Booked: Mboa Mekongo, Hetherington

    Sent Off: Cummins

    Youths face Accies this Friday

    The Under 19s are in Cup action this Friday when they take on local rivals Hamilton Accies in the Third Round of the SFA Youth Cup.

    Accies will be keen to take the scalp of their near neighbours and contests between the two over the last few years have always been tight affairs.

    The match will take place at Bathgate’s Creamery Park this coming Friday (11th November) with a 2pm kick-off.

    Matchday Programme Survey

    Take part in our matchday programme survey and you could be in with a chance of winning a Motherwell signed ball.

    As part of an ongoing drive to improve the match day experience for Scottish football supporters, SPL clubs are examining different elements that make up our day out at the match.

    The match day programme, once a key element of the experience, has experienced falling sales in recent years and so we are exploring an opportunity to create a new programme offering to be more appealing for supporters.

    Each programme would have club specific content and a Scottish football section with news and features from around the SPL, Scottish football and Scottish players in general.

    We would like to hear feedback from supporters on the current programme at the club, what improvements could be made, and ultimately can we produce a better offering for supporters.

    The questionnaire should only take a few minutes and all supporters that provide a valid email address will be entered into a prize draw to win a signed ball from the SPL club of their choice (one prize winner per club).

    TV: Randolph gets Ireland call

    Motherwell goalkeeper Darren Randolph has been drafted into the Republic of Ireland squad for their crunch Euro 2012 play-off clash with Estonia.

    The Motherwell stopper has been in sensational form again this season, keeping seven clean sheets in fourteen Scottish Premier League matches. That on the back of a club record nineteen last term; it’s easy to see why the former Charlton stopper is so highly regarded both domestically and at International level.

    Randolph, 24, has been in several squads already and will battle it out with the established Shay Given and the talented Keiren Westwood for the number one jersey as Giovanni Trapattoni’s men hope to book a place in their first major championships for almost ten years.

    The Irish face Estonia in Tallin this weekend with the return at the Aviva Stadium one week from today.
