    Well Society share scheme relaunched

    Last year after consulting with members, the Well Society launched a share issue, giving Motherwell fans the chance to own individual shares in the club.

    Having raised over £40,000 on the first go, the owners of our club are now relaunching the share issue scheme, giving supporters another chance to purchase shares.

    Running until Friday, 21 December, the scheme will allow the Society the chance to make the most of the offer from former owner Les Hutchison to double every penny raised in 2018.

    Shares will be available at a cost of £10 per share, with a minimum purchase of five shares required.

    We are again offering the following discounts to Well Society members.

    Total contributed to the Well Society (on date of purchase)Discount on shares
    Up to £9995%
    £1,000-£4,99910%
    £5,000 and above 15%

    Buying shares allow you to own your own direct part of Motherwell Football Club. Once the share issue is complete, the Well Society will continue to hold the majority shareholding and, therefore, the fan ownership model at the club will not change in any way.

    It is also important to state that this share issue in no way impacts existing Well Society memberships. Your pledges and donations are still very much vital to the club. This is a separate initiative which is entirely optional to all members.

    To apply to purchase shares, fill out this application form and send it to well.society@motherwellfc.co.uk. This can also be done over the phone by calling 01698 338009 or you can post to The Well Society, Fir Park, Fir Park Street, Motherwell, ML1 2QN.

    Craigan wants more from reserves

    Stephen Craigan says he expects his reserve side to step up and perform better when they face Sligo Rovers in the IRN-BRU Cup on Saturday.

    The youngsters were 1-0 winners in the Reserve Cup at Queen of the South on Monday, with George Newell getting the only goal from the spot.

    Loan Watch: Hastie nets for Alloa

    Jake Hastie was on the scoresheet for Alloa Athletic as they drew 3-3 with Queen of the South at the weekend.

    The Motherwell loanee scored the second for the Wasps as they raced into a three-goal lead at Palmerston within 25 minutes, netting a header from a deep cross from the right.

    But Stephen Dobbie went on to net a hat-trick to pull the game back for the Doonhamers, taking his tally for the season to 24.

    Also in the Championship, Ross MacLean came on 10 minutes into the second half for Morton as they drew 1-1 at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

    The Ton had taken the lead early on through Charlie Telfer, before Jordan White equalised on the stroke of half time.

    In League Two, PJ Morrison was in goal for Albion Rovers as they lost 3-1 at Annan, while Neil McLaughlin was a second half substitute in Stirling Albion’s 1-0 defeat at Cowdenbeath.

    Reserves win at Queens

    Motherwell picked up all three points in their Reserve Cup group stage clash with Queen of the South at Palmerston.

    George Newell’s penalty gave the Steelmen a 1-0 victory against the Doonhamers, edging what was a rather quiet encounter in Dumfries.

    It was surprising that the game remained goalless for the opening half hour, with a whole host of chances falling for the travelling reserves.

    James Scott went closest, sending a neat effort past the keeper from a narrow angle, but missing the target by inches.

    It was a well spotted foul by the referee’s assistant which afforded Motherwell a glorious chance to break the deadlock.

    Kyle MacDonald threaded a neat pass through for the run of Newell, who couldn’t get on the end of it due to Queen’s defender Dan Harvey dragging him to the deck just inside the 18 yard box.

    Newell made no mistake from the spot, sending Jack Leighfield the wrong way to put ‘Well one up after 35 minutes.

    In a game largely dominated by Craigan’s side, the hosts should have levelled and went extremely close to doing so.

    With just three minutes remaining, David Norman sent in a terrific cross which right back Ewan Gourlay got his head to, but his effort flashed narrowly past the far post.

    With two wins from two in the group stage, the reserves’ next group game is at home to Dunfermline Athletic on Monday, 15 October.

    Robinson: We stopped the rot

    Stephen Robinson says there’s plenty room for improvement but was satisfied his team ended their losing run against Livingston.

    The manager saw his team take the lead through Ryan Bowman’s goal. But Keaghan Jacobs’ wonder goal was followed up by a potentially game-changing red card for Carl McHugh.

    “The important thing is we stopped the rot,” he said.

    “We showed resilience but we need to be better on the ball.”

    Motherwell 1 – 1 Livingston

    Motherwell collected a hard-earned point from a tough, scrappy affair against high-flying Livingston.

    However, having taken an early lead through Ryan Bowman, the Fir Parkers were left fighting to take a point after Keaghan Jacobs struck a stunning equaliser and ‘Well were left with 10 men for the final 15 minutes after Carl McHugh received a second yellow card.

    After three punishing games on the road, Stephen Robinson made a few changes for their return to Fir Park. Peter Hartley returned from injury to form a back three with Tom Aldred and Liam Donnelly. Allan Campbell resumed his midfield role along with Andy Rose in a five-man midfield.

    Third-placed Livi looked intent on extending their super form and pressed the home goal from the start. The under pressure ‘Well defence was happy to see Scott Robinson’s shot deflected wide of Trevor Carson’s goal before Dolly Menga’s header drifted on to the top of the net.

    The first save though came at the other end in the 14 minute and although McHugh controlled his 20 yard volley well, Liam Kelly comfortably held his shot.

    Two minutes later, the Livingston ‘keeper was beaten. Campbell broke to the edge of the visitor’s box before laying the ball into Bowman’s path. And although his shot was on target as Craig Hackett slid in to block, his deflection carried the ball beyond his ’keeper to put the hosts ahead.

    The West Lothian defence then survived a bout of pressure, blocking successive shots from Chris Cadden and McHugh, before Curtis Main nodded the ball wide.

    After 23 minutes, Livi fans celebrated what they thought was equaliser when Keaghan Jacobs’ corner into a packed six-yard box ended with the ball rolling over the goal line. But celebrations were cut short, when referee Willie Collum awarded ‘Well a free kick as Carson had been impeded.

    Livingston’s direct route from their keeper still kept the ‘Well back three occupied but in truth Carson was never tested.

    Despite having the bulk of the play, the visitors were lucky not to concede another goal amidst appeals for penalty six minutes from the break.

    Andy Rose had his effort blocked eight yards from goal and as the ball bounced around the box Bowman had two efforts on goal blocked, the second coming off a defender’s arm but claims for a penalty were waved aside by the referee.

    The pattern of play continued after the break as ‘Well’s careless use of the ball provided Livingston with plenty of possession and the opportunity to put the home defence under almost constant pressure.

    Despite a couple of crosses and corners from Cadden the flow of play was one way and Livi were finally rewarded with an equaliser after 62 minutes.

    Hartley tugged Menga’s jersey five yards outside the box. The ‘Well captain was booked but worse was to follow when from the resultant free kick Jacobs superbly curled the ball over the defensive wall and into Carson’s top left hand corner.

    There was plenty of time for the Steelmen to regain the lead and with 18 minutes remaining, Robinson made a double substitution in the hope that Gael Bigirimana would bring composure and Danny Johnson a winning goal.

    However, before either could make an impact, ‘Well were reduced to 10 men when Carl McHugh was shown his second yellow card inside seven minutes.

    Motherwell reverted to a back four but showed some grit and urgency as they chased a winner. A minute from time, some pressure on the visitors gave Bowman possession but his ambitious drive from 30 yards was straight into Kelly’s arms.

    Then in injury time, a Steven Lawless corner was directed towards goal but the combined efforts of Carson and Campbell cleared the ball of the line and leave both teams settling for a share of the points.
