    Two new faces on Well Society board

    Gordon Miller and Derek Watson are the two newly-elected board members with the Well Society.

    Both were at Fir Park on Friday to mark their election, ahead of their first board meeting on 27 November.

    Derek was previously on the Well Society Board. Having left due to work commitments at the time, had no hesitation in putting himself forward to come back on board and believes he can help ensure the younger fans have more of a say in the running of the club.

    “Being a fan owned club means everyone should have a voice regardless of where they sit in the stadium,” he said.

    “I stand in the last section of the east stand among some very passionate and creative individuals, I’d like to think that my election to the board will give me the opportunity to make their voices heard.

    “I’m also now the youngest member of the board and one of my aims is going to to make the Society engaging and attractive to the younger generations of Well fans.”

    Gordon Miller, a season ticket holder in the Phil O’Donnell stand, added: ”It’s a huge honour to join The Well Society board. I was born and raised in Motherwell, and our club is the heart of our community.

    “Being a community club is more than a slogan. Iur club is owned and operated by our community. So our success is entirely dependent on us – the fans.

    “I’m excited about the future of Motherwell FC and at playing a role at delivering a sustainable and successful fan ownership model that will see our club flourish.”

    If you have any questions, ideas or suggestions you’d like to raise ahead of the next Well Society board meeting, please get in touch by emailing well.society@motherwellfc.co.uk.

    Robinson: We are on a high

    Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson says the squad are “buoyed” going into Sunday’s trip to face Rangers.

    The Steelmen head to Glasgow in the Ladbrokes Premiership off the back of successive victories against St Mirren and Dundee.

    David Turnbull is Tullibardine player of the month

    David Turnbull is Tullibardine player of the month

    David Turnbull has been named as the Tullibardine Motherwell player of the month for October.

    After breaking into the first team, the young midfielder rounded off the month with a long-range strike which set the Steelmen on their way to a win at St Mirren.

    The 19-year-old has gone on to build on his form and also earned a call to the Scotland Under 20s squad for their forthcoming friendly match.

    Need to know: A look at Rangers

    Need to know: A look at Rangers

    Steven Gerrard has a quarter of a century of games under his belt as Rangers boss.

    The Glaswegian side host Stephen Robinson’s men at Ibrox on Sunday, looking to extend their unbeaten run in the league to five games.

    Here’s what you need to know about the Gers.

    Hectic schedule

    Sunday’s showdown is the third game in just over a week for Rangers, who have had a busy start to the 2018/19 campaign.

    The Ibrox outfit have played 27 games already, but have only lost four of those in all competitions.

    Three of those defeats have fallen in their last seven domestic matches, losing to Livingston in the league, Aberdeen in the Betfred Cup semi final and Spartak Moscow in the Europa League.

    Collecting clean sheets

    Across the piece, one of the most improved areas of this Rangers side under Gerrard has been their defence.

    The club have kept the back door shut in 40% of their matches, and have only conceded more than two goals on domestic duty on one occasion this season.

    That came in dramatic style against none other than Stephen Robinson’s Motherwell.

    Menacing Morelos

    In Alfredo Morelos, Rangers have one of the Premiership’s top scorers leading their attack.

    The Colombian has been in hot form this season, scoring 13 goals and providing eight assists for his teammates.

    Only Steven Naismith and Odsonne Edouard have more goals to their name in the league, but fall short of the Rangers striker’s tally in all competitions.

    Missing Candeias

    After being sent off for two yellow cards in their last outing at St Mirren, Rangers had hoped to win an appeal to have Daniel Candeias available for Sunday.

    As it turned out, the Scottish FA threw out the claim on the basis his second yellow wasn’t a case of mistaken identity.

    McHugh: We’ve shown we can compete

    Carl McHugh believes Motherwell have already demonstrated they can go toe-to-toe with the top teams in the country.

    The Steelmen head to Glasgow to face Rangers on Sunday, having already drawn 3-3 with the Ibrox side this season.

    Trevor Carson gets Northern Ireland call

    Trevor Carson gets Northern Ireland call

    Trevor Carson has again been called into Northern Ireland’s squad, as they prepare for their final Nations League fixture.

    A friendly with Republic of Ireland lies in wait on Thursday, 15 November, before the deciding fixture with Austria three days later.

    Northern Ireland have no points from their opening three games, meaning they cannot be promoted from their group.

    But a win over Austria could save them from relegation and also give them an outside chance of being one of the teams in the play-offs for EURO 2020 next year.

    In Numbers: ‘Well face Gers at Ibrox

    Motherwell travel to Ibrox on Saturday on the back of two consecutive victories in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Stephen Robinson’s side face the Glasgow outfit just days after their Europa League trip to take on Spartak Moscow.

    Here, we look at the fixture in numbers.

    Six

    The total number of goals shared between the sides in the last meeting between the two earlier this season.

    Goals from Kyle Lafferty and Ovie Ejaria saw Steven Gerrard’s side come back from behind to lead the game 3-2 as the game entered stoppage time. 

    Danny Johnson and Carl McHugh had both struck on a dramatic afternoon at Fir Park, before captain Peter Hartley popped up with a last-minute leveller to round off what was one of the games of the season. 

    17

    On the topic of goals, the Fir Park side take on a team who have conceded just 17 goals this season in all competitions before their Europa League tie on Thursday night.

    Gerrard’s men have only shipped that tally despite playing 25 games already in the 2018/19 campaign.

    The Steelmen can head to the south side of Glasgow with confidence though, knowing they are the team who have put the most goals past Rangers in a single game this term, ahead of sides like Villarreal, Celtic and table-toppers Hearts.

    67

    The number of hours between Rangers finishing their Europa League match in Moscow on Thursday night and kick off on Sunday.

    The Light Blues will make the long journey back after their fourth game in the competition, before being pitched in at home against the ‘Well.

    Play the new Well Lottery

    Our lottery scheme to help invest money in youth development and our academy has changed.

    Our new Well Lottery allows you the chance to win up to £25,000, while also continuing to back the future players of the club.

    Still priced at £1 per entry, our new  providers Unity will also offer up smaller prizes of £1,000 and £25.

    HOW TO JOIN THE NEW WELL LOTTERY

    To join the new Well Lottery, you can now choose one of the following options:

    • Fill in the lottery leaflet provided and return via the freepost address provided to Unity.
    • Download a lottery leaflet from the Well Lottery website and return to Unity by post.
    • Sign up online here.

    Once you have signed up, you will receive a letter welcoming you to the lottery which will tell you your lottery numbers. You will then be entered into the draw for as long as you wish to play.

    How does the new Well Lottery work?

    We have teamed up with Unity to run the Well Lottery. For as little as £1 per week, you’ll have the chance to win up to £25,000. At least 50p of every £1 played goes straight to youth development but most importantly, there are no ongoing costs to the club.

    How is it different to the old lottery?

    New lottery numbers: Every player will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. If you match your number with the winning number drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence, you can win up to £25,000.

    Higher prize fund: Through Unity, we can now offer a higher weekly jackpot of £25,000, with smaller prizes of £1,000, £25 and five entries into the next draw on offer.

    More payment options: You can join the lottery by direct debit, credit card or cheque.

    Proceeds: Every £1 ticket gains Motherwell FC at least 50p towards the club’s youth development and academy programme.

    No change to the ticket price: It’s still £1 to play.

    Where does the money go?

    Every £1 is split three ways. At least 50p of every £1 comes straight to Motherwell FC, which is put towards the club’s youth Development and academy programme. The other 50p covers the cost of the administration of the lottery, and goes towards the fantastic prize fund.

    How do I win?

    Every player of the new Well Lottery will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. This idea is to match your number with the winning number that is drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence. Every entry in the Unity lottery has an equal one in 63 chance of winning a prize.

    For example:

    325764 – random winning number

    326574 – your lottery number

    This is a three-number match, winning five entries into the next draw.

    How do I know if I have won?

    Players are notified automatically, and prizes sent out by post, so you do not need to claim your prize. If you would like to check the winning number each week, these can be found on Unity’s website and here on the official Motherwell FC website.

    What is Unity?

    Unity is a platform on which charities run their own fundraising lottery. It is run by an external lottery manager, Sterling Lotteries, who administer hundreds of charity lotteries for clients across the country.
