    Reserves put six past St Johnstone

    Motherwell’s reserve team racked up the goals early against St Johnstone, scoring all six in the first half in a 6-1 win in the SPFL Reserve League.

    James Scott netted a hat-trick for Stephen Craigan’s side, with further goals coming from George Newell, Akeel Rehman and Broque Watson.

    However, a blistering first 45 was followed up by a disappointing second, as the hosts pulled one back and the young Steelmen failed to add to their first half tally.

    There were important minutes for first team players Charles Dunne, Liam Donnelly and Aaron Taylor-Sinclair, and impressive performances from a number of Stephen Craigan’s youngsters in front of the onlooking Stephen Robinson.

    Liam Brown was instrumental in carving out the opener for Scott to slide past the Saints stopper after 12 minutes, and lifted a neat ball over the top for Newell to race on to and finish confidently in to the bottom corner five minutes later.

    It took four more minutes for the third to arrive. Taylor-Sinclair’s throw was flicked on by Scott, with Akeal Rehman getting in on the act by side-footing in to the top corner.

    Adam Livingstone created a couple of goals to cap an impressive 45 minutes for the youngster.

    The first saw him slide a delightful ball across goal for a Watson tap-in, and then he cut back cleverly for Scott to slam a thunderous effort off the underside of the crossbar.

    Scott rounded off his hat trick with a powerful header from a Liam Donnelly cross, but a poor second half was rounded off when the hosts made it 6-1 despite barely laying a glove in the opening half.

    Club supports Rainbow Laces campaign

    Motherwell Football Club is showing its support for lesbian, gay, bi and trans players and fans by backing the Rainbow Laces campaign.

    Rainbow Laces is Stonewall Scotland’s awareness project to change attitudes in sport and make sure that LGBT people are welcomed and accepted at all levels of the game.

    Sadly, many lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people have a poor experience in sport and have experienced discrimination because of who they are. Research shows that almost half of LGBT people think that public sporting events, such as football matches, aren’t a welcoming space for them.

    As well as our continued backing, our players will show their support on the pitch during Wednesday’s home match with Celtic.

    “Football is a place where everyone should be accepted,” Motherwell captain Peter Hartley said of the campaign. “As a club, we want LGBT people to feel safe and welcome, both here and everywhere else in the game.

    “Discrimination should not happen. We must all be role models and stand united to remove the stigma, stop abusive behaviour and make sure football is a welcome environment for all.”

    Colin Macfarlane, Director of Stonewall Scotland, said: “We are delighted that SPFL clubs are supporting our Rainbow Laces campaign, and by doing so, standing with LGBT football fans across Scotland.

    “We want to see fans make similar commitments and become active allies to LGBT people by creating a welcoming environment and challenging abuse. Many LGBT people want to take part in football, either as players or fans, but abuse from a small minority makes many people feel unsafe.”

    We can only stop homophobic, biphobic and transphobic behaviour and language from happening in football by showing that it is not acceptable, at every level of the game.

    We are dedicated to eradicating any forms of homophobic, biphobic or transphobic behaviour and making sure our club is a place where LGBT fans can be safe and accepted. We need everyone to stand with us as allies to LGBT people.

    Loan Watch: McLaughlin nets for Binos

    Loan Watch: McLaughlin nets for Binos

    Neil McLaughlin was on the scoresheet for Stirling Albion on Saturday, as they continued their recent form with a 5-2 win over Elgin City.

    The Binos found themselves 2-0 down at home after 19 minutes, but recovered brilliantly to take the match in 3-2 up at the break.

    McLaughlin’s goal was the second scored for the hosts in the first half, as his side went on to score two more in the second half to close the gap on the middle pack in League Two.

    Jake Hastie was a second half substitute for Alloa as they lost a last-minute goal at home to Ross County 1-0.

    Falkirk’s 3-2 at Inverness means the Bairns have pulled level with the Wasps in eighth spot, with Dunfermline the next team ahead of them in the table, seven points better off.

    Ross MacLean was an unused substitute for Morton as they lost 3-0 to Dunfermline. Shea Gordon remains on the sidelines for Partick Thistle, while Peter Morrison didn’t feature for Albion Rovers.
