    TV: Craigan relishing celebrations

    Retiring Motherwell captain Stephen Craigan has revealed he is looking forward to Sundays clash with Dundee United for many reasons.

    The inspirational captain plays his last ever professional game against fellow European qualifiers Dundee United on Sunday in what is sure to be an emotional day for the 35 year old who concludes his a 15 year career with Motherwell.

    Speaking to MFCTV, Craigan said, “There is no doubt it will be an emotional day. I’ve spent 15 years of my 18 year career here. I came here as a 17 year old kid and spent the majority of my adult life growing up here so you make friendships with people and make rapport with people and I will miss it.

    “The mood in the camp is good. We said a few week ago we didn’t want to go into this game having it as a play-off for third in the league so it suited us well that we have got the job done. I think we can now go out and enjoy it. There aren’t many game in football you can enjoy without any pressure and still have had success along the way and hopefully the players can express themselves.

    “There should be a huge crowd; £5 a ticket is wonderful, and it should be a day of celebrating the fact we’ve came third and obviously a personal celebration that I’m finishing up. We need people to come back but we need to catch them and get them to want to come back. If they here on Sunday and maybe not see a great performance, but a bit of a celebration then hopefully they will get attached to that and want to come back next season and support the boys.

    “If we win on Sunday we will have won half our games which is a phenomenal return for a club of our size.”

    TV: Black discusses season finale

    Kenny Black spoke to MFCTV today about the forthcoming and final  game of the SPL season, where the Steelmen take on Dundee United at Fir Park at 12.30 Sunday 13 May.

    The Fir Parkers return to action after a credible 0-0 draw with Rangers last Saturday after already claiming 3rd spot the tempo of the game was of a vibrant nature. Assistant Manager Kenny Black seeks more of the same as he looks to end the season on a high.

    “I think it would be nice for the players who have played the majority of the season to go out and put a performance in, to finish the season on a high and get the 3 points at home would be absolutely magnificent.

    “I’m sure Dundee United will come here and do exactly what we are trying to do and that is getting 3 points to finishes off the season. We know what Dundee United strengths are and we are hoping to cause them a few problems of their own.”

    Talking about how successful the season has been Kenny Black went on to say “I think when you take a step back from the season and you look at the consistency that we had albeit we didn’t do so well against the Old Firm if you look at the rest of the matches I think we only lost four over the piece, so i think that consistency has been key.

    “We are looking to achieve a positive result come full time on Sunday.”

    Gordon Young reflects on U19 season

    Gordon Young and Keiran McGachie spoke to MFCTV today as they looked back on the u19 2011/12 campaign.

    Gordon praised the efforts of Motherwell’s U19’s Players Player of the Year Keiran McGachie, saying that “Keiran is someone I have got to know very well over his two years at the club and I’d like to think I’ve contributed in his development as a footballer. His attitude is first class around the club, in training and in matches.”

    The industrious striker managed to grab himself 11 goals in all competitions this season and he added, “Personally I think anybody could have got the award as the team have been excellent. I am obviously delighted that the boys have supported me and voted me for the award.”

    The young Steelmen have only suffered two defeats since October including a trip to Turkey where they faced off against teams such as Zenit St Petersburg u19’s and Turkish 3rd Division side Emrespor’s first team. Gordon reflected, “The players have matured well throughout the season, we have a young goalkeeper who has established himself in the under 19 team at the young age of 17.

    “The back four were very young and inexperienced at the start of the season but have really grown in stature as the season has gone on. The midfield has been consistent throughout the season and the strikers I said I would continue to rotate have all performed well when called upon.

    “There have been many highlights this season. I think since we’ve came back from Turkey, everybody drew a lot of strength from the games we played there. We got a fantastic opportunity to train in great conditions and in every game we played there I thought we were excellent and everyone complimented on the style of play we had. While the bread and butter of the season has been good, I’ve been very lucky with their attitude over the season.

    “Overall I think they have been a credit to themselves, their family and have represented the club at a very high level.”

    Stephen Craigan Announcement

    Club captain and Motherwell stalwart Stephen Craigan has announced he will retire from the professional game after Motherwell’s final game this weekend.

    Stephen was offered a new contract with the club but after careful consideration with his family he has decided to end his playing career after Motherwell’s most successful season and concentrate on media work. Steven is currently discussing offers from various TV and Radio stations.

    The Northern Irishman, 35, enjoyed an 18 year career, which saw him notch up 378 appearances for the Steelmen and 54 international caps.

    Speaking earlier today, Craigan said, “When I joined the club in 1994 I had no idea that I would spend the majority of my adult life and footballing career at Fir Park. My aim was to play football professionally and today I can say I achieved my goal and it’s been a wonderfully satisfying journey.

    “I take a lot of pride that I’ve represented the club 378 times and in wearing the claret and amber colours. It was a privilege to follow in the footsteps of some great players who’ve played not just at Fir Park over the years but at centre half.

    “I want to thank all the players that I’ve played with throughout my career, past and present. At times I’m sure I was hard work but it was all for a good cause, winning. I’ve learned a great deal from all the managers I’ve worked under and I hope I set a good example for them with my work ethic.”

    Everyone at Motherwell would like to thank Stephen for his loyalty and his contribution to many successful years with the Club. While his football career has drawn to a close, we would all like to wish him the very best in his future endeavours.

    You can read all of Stephen’s comments in our award-winning match programme on Sunday.

I have two guys – Ross Clarkson and Ally Reilly – who work beside me every day and a strong team who give of their services free of charge each and every week and this award is for them as much as anyone.

    “It’s also directly related to how good Stuart McCall and the players are at fulfilling their press and media requirements. They are a pleasure to work with and make my life much easier – I am chuffed they are getting their rewards this campaign to go along with this award tonight.”
