    Suzanne Mulvey named SWPL 2 Player of the Year

    Motherwell’s Suzanne Mulvey has been named as the Player of the Year in SWPL 2.

    Recognised for her role in the club’s record points tally in their title-winning season, the forward was honoured at the Scottish Women’s Football awards on Saturday night.

    Mulvey, who was the team’s leading scorer in 2018 with 26 goals, was also named as the Coaches Player of the Year in the club’s own awards.

    Megan Burns was nominated for Goal of the Season, while former coach Eddie Wolecki Black was on the shortlist for Manager of the Year.

    David Turnbull features in Scotland defeat

    David Turnbull made his bow for Scotland’s Under 20 side on Saturday, as they lost 2-0 to Turkey.

    Two late goals in the friendly in Spain consigned the youngsters to defeat, in a match the Motherwell midfielder started.

    The young Scots were holding out before two late goals in the 87th and 90th minutes, coupled with a red card for Hibernian’s Ryan Porteous, consigned them to defeat.

    Bigirimana one game away from Africa Cup of Nations

    Gaël Bigirimana’s Burundi are closing in on a historic first appearance at the Africa Cup of Nations.

    The midfielder featured as his country thumped South Sudan 5-2 at the weekend, putting them second in their qualification group with one game to play.

    With Mali having qualified after a 1-0 win over Gabon, Bigirimana’s side just need to avoid defeat at home to Gabon on 22 March to qualify.

    Burundi are two points ahead of Gabon in the final qualifying spot, and managed a 1-1 draw away to their group rivals earlier this year.

    The goals from Colts match with Ross County

    Adam Livingstone scored a stunning free-kick, but Motherwell’s Colts ultimately bowed out of the IRN-BRU Cup to Ross County.

    The Championship side showed their experience to grind out the win, in the face of a strong performance from the young Steelmen.

    Players react to Colts result

    Barry Maguire, Broque Watson and goal scorer Adam Livingstone react to the quarter final defeat against Ross County in the Irn-Bru cup.

    Despite going down to ten men, the Steelmen put in an inspired performance against Championship opponents, and fell narrowly short of a place in the last four.

    Speaking at full time, Barry Maguire said: “We’ve done the coaches, the fans and ourselves proud.”

    Craigan: We made history

    Stephen Craigan was disappointed his Colts side exited the IRN-BRU Cup at the hands of Ross County, but was proud of his history-making side.

    The youngsters were the first Under 20s Premiership side to reach the quarter-finals and more than matched their vastly more experienced opponents, before losing 2-1.

    Motherwell Colts bow out of IRN-BRU Cup

    Motherwell’s colts side put in a fighting performance but just lost out to Championship high-flyers Ross County in the IRN-BRU Cup quarter-final.

    A stunning Adam Livingstone free-kick pegged back the Staggies but two goals lost from set plays handed the win to the visitors.

    In a combative affair at Fir Park, the game came down to four incidents in a five-minute spell.

    With six minutes gone in the second half, County had the lead. A corner to the back post was headed back across the face of the goal, where Ross Stewart was on hand to knock the ball home.

    Two minutes later, Stephen Craigan’s men were handed a lifeline as Jake Hastie was felled as he bore down on goal.

    Presented with the chance 20 yards from goal, left back Livingstone lifted the ball brilliantly over the wall and off the bar, before it nestled in the net.

    Scenes of celebration were then immediately tempered. Christian Mbulu was adjudged to have committed an act of violent conduct as he ran into Don Cowie as he went to join his team-mates.

    A man down, the young Steelmen were then undone three minutes later from another set play. Again, Stewart was the beneficiary, putting the Championship side back in the lead.

    Motherwell continued to push to try and get back into the match, but ultimately came up short as their more-experienced opponents held firm in front of 1,200 supporters.

    Livingstone aiming for more than last four

    Adam Livingstone believes the Colts can use more than just a place in the Irn-Bru Cup semi final as inspiration against Ross County on Saturday. 

    The academy graduate admits that the thought of a spot in Stephen Robinson’s first team is something the youngsters can channel in to their performance as they prepare to face Championship opposition at Fir Park.

    “I think it can give us all an extra edge,” the defender said.

    “We’ve shown that we’re capable of going toe-to-toe with first team players and teams, and we want to do ourselves justice this weekend.”

    Craigan calls on Colts to express themselves

    Fir Park plays host to the IRN-BRU Cup quarter-finals on Saturday, as Motherwell Colts welcome Ross County.

    Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

    History makers

    The youngsters are the first in the competition’s history to reach the last eight of the IRN-BRU Cup, having defeated Sligo Rovers in the last round.

    East Stirlingshire and Dundee Colts have also been defeated on the way to the clash with the Ladbrokes Championship side.

    Tough opponents

    The opportunity to face senior teams in the competition provides a different test for Stephen Craigan’s side, but taking on County arguably provides their most difficult to date.

    The Staggies, relegated from the Premiership last season, are second in the league this campaign and still boast a host of players who played top flight football last season.

    That includes lively striker Billy McKay, who has netted 11 goals in 18 appearances in 2018/19.
