    Crusaders 0-1 Motherwell

    Motherwell kicked off their 2018/19 pre-season schedule with a friendly win away to Crusaders.

    Danny Johnson scored with the last touch of the ball to secure a 1-0 victory in Belfast, with his back post header finding the net in Jordan Owens’ testimonial match.

    The Steelmen played two different XIs in each half, giving the majority of the squad who travelled playing time.

    New goalkeeper Mark Gillespie and left back Aaron Taylor-Sinclair both got starts, with Peter Hartley also making his return from injury.

    The heat at Seaview took the tempo down somewhat, with both sides having a handful of chances to open the scoring.

    An acrobatic effort from Ryan Bowman was the visitors’ best attempt, while the hosts were denied by an offside flag and an incredible save from Gillespie.

    The second half saw the introduction of a whole new 11 players, including summer recruits Alex Rodríguez Gorrín, Liam Donnelly and Danny Johnson.

    And it was the latter who would find the net just before the referee’s whistle.

    Elliott Frear, who had been industrious down the left flank, swung the ball to the back post where Johnson was on hand to nod the ball home.

    Next up for Motherwell is a closed doors game with Morton on Tuesday, followed by the trip to Darlington next Sunday.

    Pete: We’re setting new standards

    Pete: We’re setting new standards

    The 2017/18 season provided plenty cause to be optimistic about what’s being built at Motherwell, with the team having reached both national cup finals and narrowly missed out on a top six finish.

    With the core of the group retained for the new campaign, and further depth added to the squad in key positions, manager Stephen Robinson’s decision to take the team back to Carton House in Ireland for pre-season training was very much about trying to set the same standards again.

    Defender Peter Hartley wasn’t a Motherwell player this time 12 months ago, but he quickly became aware of the level expected.

    A pivotal figure in the backline before injury curtailed his season last year, the Englishman says the return across the Irish Sea is about more than simply trying to replicate what’s gone before. Instead, he says, it’s about raising standards further and finding another level.

    “We’re not planning on standing still,” he said. “We are planning on moving forward and breaking into the top six.

    If you stand still, you’ll get overtaken. We have to improve. The only way to do that is to grow, get fitter and instil the principles again.

    “If we do that, the target is to win a cup final this time, or get into the top six.”

    A foot injury picked up in January ruled the former Plymouth Argyle man out for several months at the start of 2018.

    Having maintained his status as an important figure behind the scenes during his layoff, Hartley says he’s now completely ready to impose himself again on the field.

    “I feel great,” he said. “I am pain free. I am making sure I am getting my match sharpness when I can and getting involved with practically everything.”

    Barry Maguire signs new deal

    Barry Maguire signs new deal

    Barry Maguire has extended his stay with Motherwell for the 2018/19 season.

    The central defender, who made his first team debut towards the end of last campaign, has signed a new one-year deal.

    Maguire, 20, has made three appearances in claret and amber to date.

    “I am delighted to be staying with the club,” he said after signing on. “I got a taste of first team football last season and felt I handled it well.

    ”My goal now is to try and stay in the manager’s thoughts and get into the team.”

    Manager Stephen Robinson added: “Barry has shown he has the ability to step up to the first team and give us further options at centre back.”

    ”We are pleased he is staying on and hope we can keep pushing him to fulfil his potential.”
