    Motherwell players in international action

    Five of Stephen Robinson’s first team squad will be in international action over the coming days.

    Chris Cadden and Allan Campbell are on Scotland Under 21 duty, as Scot Gemmill’s side continue their push for at least a play-off spot in qualification for the 2019 UEFA European Under 21 Championship.

    Goal difference currently keeps the Scots in third place behind Ukraine in second, who the pair travel to face on Thursday.

    A win in Kiev will set up a final game with England which, depending on results, could be a shootout for top spot or a potential play-off place.

    Northern Ireland Under 21s are also in contention to reach the play-offs, as they face a double header away to Iceland on Thursday and then at home to Slovakia next Tuesday.

    Liam Donnelly’s side are a point behind the Slovaks with two games to go, with Iceland sitting three points behind. All three teams can finish in second and claim a possible play-off spot, depending on results in other groups.

    At senior level, Trevor Carson and Gaël Bigirimana are also in qualification action.

    Carson’s Northern Ireland play two UEFA Nations League matches away from home on Friday and Monday.

    The goalkeeper’s side are in Austria first, before heading south to take on Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    Bosnia are the runaway leaders in the group, having won both of their matches so far. Northern Ireland and Austria have only played once, both against Bosnia.

    Bigirimana meanwhile is in action in the qualifying stages for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with Burundi.

    His nation have never reached the tournament before but have made a great start in their group, winning their first match and drawing the second against Gabon.

    Group leaders Mali lie in wait on Friday in Bamako, before the two sides meet again in Burundi next Tuesday.

    A coffee and a chat with Stephen Craigan

    Reserves manager Stephen Craigan sits down for a coffee and a chat ahead of Saturday’s Irn-Bru Cup clash against Sligo Rovers. 

    With a big week ahead for his players, Craigan talks about all the build-up around the fixture, as well as the demands on young players.

    “You’re trying to point them in the right direction and guide them in the early stages of their career,” he said. “I don’t want any of them to leave the football club and think ‘I should have listened’, or have any regrets.”

    Well Society share scheme relaunched

    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.

    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.
