    Morrison joins Clyde on loan

    Motherwell FC can today confirm that young goalkeeper Peter Morrison will join Clyde on a Development Loan until January. 

    The 19-year old will move to the League Two side to gain some valuable first-team experience under the guidance of manager Jim Chapman.

    Peter has come through the youth set-up at Fir Park and has become a regular starter for Stephen Craigan’s Under-20s side in recent seasons and will still be available for selection for the Northern Irishman’s side.

    The teenager will be set for four months of first team football before making his return to Fir Park at the start of 2018.

    And ‘Well boss Stephen Robinson said: “It’s a great opportunity for PJ to go out and get some first-team football with Clyde.

    Craigan: Boys responded well

    Stephen Craigan admitted that he was delighted with the way his players responded to going down to ten-men against Aberdeen tonight.

    Despite having a man less for nearly an hour, the young Steelmen held on for a goalless draw at Forthbank Stadium.

    The under-20s boss spoke to MFC TV at full time after his side maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

    [pullquote]I’m delighted with the way the boys went about the game in the second half. We slightly changed the shape to put the onus on to [Aberdeen] to work a bit harder.[/pullquote]

    He said: “I’m delighted with the way the boys went about the game in the second half. We slightly changed the shape to put the onus on to [Aberdeen] to work a bit harder.”

    He added: “I think when you go down to ten-men you almost need an out-ball somewhere and we tried to keep two strikers on the pitch so that we could go long when we were under pressure.

    “From the message we gave at half time the boys took it on really, really well.”

    Motherwell U20s 0 – 0 Aberdeen U20s

    Ten-man Motherwell maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a goalless draw against Aberdeen U20s tonight.

    Stephen Craigan’s youngsters were limited to few chances in front of goal and had a call for a penalty waved away by the referee on a largely quiet evening at Forthbank Stadium in Stirling.

    Youngster Jamie Semple made his second start for the under-20s with George Newell leading the claret and amber attack.

    However, the forward cut a lone furrow up top for the majority of the evening after Dylan King was sent for an early shower against the northern opposition.

    The Northern Irish centre-back picked up his first booking when he tripped Connor McLellan and was shown a second yellow in the 35th minute when a slack touch allowed Bruce Anderson to rob the youngster before being bundled off the ball.

    However, despite their man advantage the Dons struggled to create much going forward and Russell Griffiths was largely untested until three minutes before the interval.

    Anderson’s effort from outside the box forced a decent save from the Englishman and the stopper palmed the ball back in to the danger area where, fortunately, Jack McMillan was there to hook the ball clear.

    With his side level but down to ten men, Craigan removed Semple from the action at half time and replaced him with Kyle MacDonald.

    The second half nearly got off to the ideal start for Motherwell as Davie Turnbull got his head on the end of Dylan Falconer’s corner – but his effort flew narrowly past the post.

    Ellis Plummer tested Dons stopper Archie Mair on the hour mark when the defender burst past a number of challenges and struck his effort straight at the young keeper.

    On what was a quiet evening, the final five minutes sparked some life in to the game and brought some controversy with it.

    A neat ‘Well move down the right flank could have led to the breakthrough and certainly led to the talking point of the game.

    Allan Campbell’s one-two with Davie Turnbull saw the midfielder, who had shifted to right back, burst in to the box before being tripped by Danny Harvie, who got nowhere near the ball. The referee decided to wave play on.

    A few minutes later, the visitors had a penalty claim of their own but the referee adjudged marauding centre-back Scott McKenna to have dived in the area and booked the defender.

    Motherwell nearly snatched all three points when a clever run from substitute Alfie Agyeman and a perfect through ball from Jordan Armstrong led to a corner, but Aberdeen managed to eventually avert the danger and ensure the game ended goalless.

    Robinson: We deserved the result

    ‘Well boss Stephen Robinson felt his side deserved their 2-1 victory against Hearts this afternoon.

    And despite notching seven wins from nine games this season, the manager still believes there is more to come from his team.

    Speaking to MFC TV at full time, Robinson reflected on a positive 90 minutes and admitted his side won their physical battles.

    [pullquote]It’s a good start but we’re not getting carried away and we know we’ve still got things to improve on – there’s bits and pieces in the game that we can be better at.[/pullquote]

    He said: “We put both halves together today, we were aggressive and physical and to be honest I think in the first half we could have played better. We won that physical battle and then we could have done better on the ball sometimes.

    “We just corrected a few things at half time but I didn’t think we were very far away and I thought we deserved the result.”

    He added: “It’s a good start but we’re not getting carried away and we know we’ve still got things to improve on – there’s bits and pieces in the game that we can be better at.”
