An emotional Chris Humphrey left Fir Park for the last time this afternoon full of memories of his four years at Motherwell.
The Jamaican international signed a deal with English League One side Preston North End, bringing to an end a fantastically successful spell in Claret and Amber including two ‘best of the rest’ finishes in the SPL, a Scottish Cup final and twelve matches in European competition.
It has been a rollercoaster of emotions for the 25-year old, who overcame personal tragedy early in his ‘Well career to mature both on and off the field.

Speaking exclusively to MFC TV for the final time, the former West Bromwich Albion and Shrewsbury Town winger said: “Your emotions don’t really kick in until you actually sign somewhere else and it dawns on you that you won’t be coming back.
“I’ve loved my time at Fir Park, I’ve met some great people and made lifelong friends at the club and the football has been great for me too; it really suited for wingers up in Scotland.
“When I first signed back in 2009, everyone knows some of the issues and problems I had off the field and the club were fantastic during that time, giving me the time off with my family that I needed.
“It’s times like that which makes this such a special place and why leaving is so hard. But I am looking forward to the challenge at Preston in what should be a very competitive league.
“I just want to thank everyone at Motherwell for everything and I’ll certainly be back soon to watch some matches.”
