    Hospitality for Betfred Cup matches

    Both the Cooper Bar and Centenary Suite will be open for pre-match food and drink ahead of our two home matches in the 2018/19 Betfred Cup.

    Motherwell face Edinburgh City and Queen of the South on 17 and 24 July respectively, as the team look to replicate last season’s run to the final.

    Our usual pre-match hospitality will not be in operation. Food can be purchased before the game and access to the bars will be available before and after the match, as well as at half time.

    Opposition fans are also welcome at both games.

    Introducing the new Motherwell FC website

    Introducing the new Motherwell FC website

    Welcome to the new website of Motherwell Football Club.

    After extensive development and consultation with supporters over what they expect from their club website, we’ve worked with Scottish web development agency mtc to bring you our new offering.

    Our previous website and server were not befitting of the strides we have taken as a club both on and off the pitch. Through our conversations with you, the fans, you told us that:

    • Information on the first team was the main reason you visited
    • You wanted more insight into the first team and more content around them
    • Buying tickets online was also important, leading to the launch of our ticketing platform this summer
    • A new, modern website that was fit for purpose in the current digital age was essential
    • A responsive mobile website was critical, with 67% of those surveyed saying they visited the website on their mobile devices

    The new website is based around those fundamental points. The main content you will see every time you visit will be geared around the first team matches and players, with fresh interviews, features, behind-the-scenes content and more on a daily basis, whether that’s in written, video or audio form.

    Club websites can be cluttered. We wanted to strip things down so that you see only what the majority are interested in on first glance. But there are still lots of areas that are vitally important to the club, and we’ve organised these better through our new navigation system, that makes it quicker and easier to find the items you need.

    Our new site will also help us grow the business, with the ability to sell tickets and hospitality, increase opportunities for digital sponsorships and better promote the sale of club merchandise. It is also hosted on a new server which will be able to handle large volumes of traffic.

    “This is an important day for Motherwell FC as we step up our digital offering,” communications manager Grant Russell said.

    “Our supporters have told us exactly what they expect from our website, and we’ve looked to reflect that in what we are launching today.

    “Our previous offering had become not fit for purpose and it was important we took the time to properly investigate and then design a website that would best serve the club and its supporters.

    “We have a lot of innovative features and we’ve spent a lot of time on the user experience, making it as easy as possible to find the information you want as easily as possible. We are also now able to integrate our website with our new ticketing system, meaning it is now possible to buy tickets for matches through our website in just a few clicks.

    “There are a number of features still to follow that will even further enhance our website for our fans that we will announce shortly.”

    Ryan McGinnis, lead designer on the project at mtc, added: “We are delighted to present the new club website after months of collaborative research, design and development between Motherwell & mtc,”

    “Our primary aim was to establish a highly engaging fan experience by placing supporters at the forefront of the digital journey. We have created a system that allows users to effortlessly find key content and can withstand the technical pressures expected of a progressive, traffic-heavy football club.

    “We’re thrilled to welcome the club to our ever growing sports line-up and look forward to growing our digital partnership with Motherwell FC.”

    McLaughlin and Watson sign on

    McLaughlin and Watson sign on

    Neil McLaughlin and Broque Watson have been recruited to form part of Stephen Craigan’s reserves team for the 2018/19 season.

    The pair have been signed up on one-year deals. McLaughlin joins from Partick Thistle, while Watson has signed from Celtic.

    McLaughlin has immediately gone out on loan to Stirling Albion for the season, with the club holding a recall option in January. He will also be eligible to play for the Motherwell reserve team.

    The 19-year-old forward, who made three appearances for the Jags, also spent last campaign with Stirling, playing 33 times and scoring four goals.

    Watson, a winger, has played for Celtic in the UEFA Youth League and will also form part of the reserves.

    Hampden displays raise funds for the Well Society

    Hampden displays raise funds for the Well Society

    Prior to both of last season’s cup finals, the ‘Well support produced two amazing card displays which not only looked the part, but also raised over £9000 for the Well Society.

    Organised by the Well Bois, with support from the Well Society, the fundraising effort was initially to cover the costs of the display. Following on from this, any additional funds generated were to be donated to the Well Society, with money raised further boosted with the “Double Your Money” initiative still in play.

    Our support responded in their droves and by digging deep, they exceeded all expectations and ensured that the Well Bois were able to turn our end of Hampden Park claret and amber, giving our players a sight to behold as they walked out of the tunnel to a rapturous welcome.

    “We would like to thank the Well Bois and the Motherwell support for this incredible effort,” Well Society board member Maureen Kirkwood said.

    “Each and every person involved should be exceptionally proud of how it looked and, of course, the funds raised too.

    “Time and time again our fans knock it out of the park, and we at the Well Society will never take that for granted.”

    Derek Watson, one of the many fans who helped coordinate the displays, added: “We wanted to make sure our fans were represented at the final and we were delighted about how it all turned out.

    “We greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts in making this happen, in particular a big thanks to John McAlpine and Andy Lewis who helped design the displays.

    “It’s always been our aim to bring colour and atmosphere to Motherwell matches, both home and away, and we are extremely grateful to the Motherwell support for their continuous support.”

    If you haven’t already done so you can continue to play your part and help support the club towards more success on and off the field by pledging to the Well Society from just £5 per month by clicking here.

    Motherwell hit five in Darlington win

    Motherwell continued their pre-season preparations with a 5-1 win over Darlington.

    Danny Johnson bagged his second goal in as many friendlies as the Steelmen stormed to a 2-0 lead within seven minutes.

    Cédric Kipré’s opener from inside the six-yard box was followed up by Johnson’s stunning volley at Blackwell Meadows, as ‘Well asserted their control over the National League North opposition.

    Allan Campbell made it three before half time with a neat finish on the bounce, placing the ball beyond Maddison in to the side of the net.

    The hosts pulled one back thanks to a neat finish from Harvey Saunders, who got the better of Aaron Taylor-Sinclair before prodding neatly past Trevor Carson eight minutes after the restart.

    Stephen Robinson made a number of changes midway through the second half, with 17-year-old James Scott among those to be introduced.

    Ryan Bowman capped off 90 minutes with a neat lob made it 4-1 to the Fir Parkers. The striker latched on to Carl McHugh’s defensive header which looped over the Darlington defence before being helped on by the English striker from eight yards.

    Youngster Scott wrapped up proceedings with just seconds to go, cutting in from the left at pace and fizzing a low effort in to the far corner.

    Up next for the Steelmen is Dunfermline on Thursday, as Robinson’s men look to continue their strong pre-season form.
