    Show racism the red card

    Show racism the red card

    We are proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Card’s fortnight of action.

    Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years. The SPFL and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 15 years ago.

    In addition to increasing the awareness of the organisation’s work in Scotland, the fortnight of action from 5 to 19 October, shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

    All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend from Friday, 5 October to Sunday, 7 October. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and in society. Players in over 40 European countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination.

    We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message. It is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the fortnight of action and beyond the terraces.

    Motherwell Football Club condemn all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated within the club.

    Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair and inclusive for all.

    Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.

    Loan Watch: Three in weekend action

    Loan Watch: Three in weekend action

    Three of Motherwell’s loan players were in action for their teams on Saturday.

    In the Championship, Jake Hastie got the most minutes as he played the first hour of Alloa’s 2-0 defeat at home to Falkirk.

    Former ‘Well player Deimantas Petravičius got an assist in the game, as the Bairns got their first league win of the campaign to pull level with the Wasps.

    Ross MacLean came on as a substitute for Morton as they suffered a crushing home defeat to table toppers Ayr United.

    The forward played the final 35 minutes as the Ton went for the kill at 1-1, only to lose four goals between the 73rd and 89th minutes to lose 5-1.

    In League Two, it was set up to be a battle of Neil McLaughlin against PJ Morrison, as Stirling Albion faced Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill.

    McLaughlin though didn’t feature, leaving it to Morrison to turn in an impressive showing as the Wee Rovers ran out 3-0 winners.

    Story of the Match from Kilmarnock

    Motherwell travelled to Kilmarnock on Saturday looking to build on a battling showing in the midweek cup defeat to Hearts.

    This is the Story of the Match from the trip to Rugby Park.

    Title party marked with Hearts draw

    Title party marked with Hearts draw

    Motherwell were unable to mark being presented with the SWPL 2 title with a victory, after being held to a 1-1 draw against Hearts.

    Kerry Montgomery opened the scoring after 10 minutes, before former ‘Well played Pamela Liddell levelled early in the second half.

    It was the first time this season Donald Jennow’s side have dropped points at home this season and the first time they have failed to win after opening the scoring.

    The hosts started brightly, and Suzanne Mulvey came close in the first minute before Sammy Hare headed just over the bar five minutes later.

    ‘Well were rewarded for their early attacking threat when Montgomery swept the ball home from close range after Mulvey had struck the post.

    Kendall Welsh in the Motherwell goal was forced into a brilliant stop on 20 minutes to deny Liddell a leveller, but it was the home team who continued to enjoy the better of the chances.

    Sammy Hare rattled the post and then the bar within the space of a frantic few minutes. Normally so clinical in front of goal, the striker was clearly frustrated she had failed to find the net when particularly on the first occasion it almost looked easier to score than miss.

    Hayley Cunningham and Lauryn Reside both passed up chances before Hare again was unable to convert a good scoring opportunity, firing high over the bar on the stroke of half time.

    The driving wind in the second half made playing any sort of football difficult and Motherwell struggled to maintain their attacking threat of the first 45.

    The equaliser arrived on 55 minutes when Liddell latched on to a through ball and finished with great composure.

    Following the Hearts goal the game was thrown wide open as a contest, but chances were at a premium.

    Hayley Cunningham’s low drive drifted just past the post and, at the other end, Liddell couldn’t find the target after bursting through the ‘Well defence.

    The last big chance of the match came when Mulvey managed to breach the Hearts backline. But her final touch was heavy, allowing Jambos keeper to bravely intercept and ensure the score remained level.

    It wasn’t the result that the women of steel hoped for, but it didn’t hamper their post-match celebrations in which they finally got their hands on the title.

    Motherwell return to action in two weeks, when they face Spartans at Forthbank with a place in the final of the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup up for grabs.
