    Need to Know: A look at the Buddies

    Motherwell host St Mirren in the Ladbrokes Premiership in what is an important game for both sides on Saturday.

    Oran Kearney’s Buddies come in to the encounter on the back of a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of Aberdeen.

    Here, we take a look at the visitors to Fir Park.

    Searching for points

    St Mirren sit nine points behind the Steelmen ahead of Saturday’s clash in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    With a small gap now separating the bottom two sides, Saints will be eager to close the deficit and not become cut further adrift ahead of the winter break.

    Three points for Oran Kearney’s men would not only help them pull closer to Hamilton, but could also see them get ahead of Dundee mathematically instead of just goal difference.

    Must find consistency

    Over the course of the campaign, Saints best run without defeat has been just two matches.

    A draw with Dundee was immediately followed up with a win over Hearts, and it’s the best the club have managed this term.

    Finding some form of consistency could be crucial to the Buddies campaign.

    Experience in their ranks

    Finding themselves towards the foot of the table, Saints will call on some of their experienced players to help turn the tide.

    33-year-old Anton Ferdinand is certainly not lacking in that department, and alongside the likes of Stephen McGinn and Adam Hammill, makes up a solid core for the Buddies.

    The Paisley outfit is also blessed with some exciting youngsters too, icluding Ethan Erhahon and the on-loan duo of Alfie Jones and Matty Willock.

    1991 documentary to be aired in January

    1991 documentary to be aired in January

    A new documentary charting Motherwell’s 1991 Scottish Cup victory will be shown on BBC ALBA on Friday, 18 January at 9pm.

    Steelmen is the bittersweet story of life in the industrial Scottish town of Motherwell in the early 1990s. Providing a reflective insight into its community and society, the documentary is told through the football club’s Scottish Cup victory.

    In 1991, as the town of faced the crippling social, economic and cultural impact of the closure of the Ravenscraig steelworks, the Steelmen lifted the prestigious Scottish Cup for the first time in 39 years, the victory a glimmer of light in the ensuing darkness.

    The workers of Ravenscraig and the local community had a strong camaraderie, a characteristic shared by the squad.

    As the local industry was threatened and community morale crushed, a series of footballing highs provided a clink of light in what was a devastating period for the town.

    The film features Motherwell legends from the cup final victory, including captain Tom Boyd, Chris McCart, Ian Angus, Iain Ferguson, Luc Nijholt, Stevie Kirk and Jim Griffin, Ravenscraig steelworkers Donald Oliver and Kevin Harper, Motherwell club historian Keith Brown and Motherwell FC’s chief executive Alan Burrows. The story is enhanced visually by archive, memorabilia and drama reconstruction.

    Steelmen, produced by purpleTV for BBC ALBA, will air at 9pm on Friday 18 January.

    Stephen Craigan to leave Motherwell

    Stephen Craigan is to leave his position as Motherwell’s reserve team manager.

    The Northern Irishman has spent three and a half years in the role, but believes the time is right to move on.

    “I think after a certain amount of time, young players need a new voice and a new leader to try and push them on,” he said.

    “I came back in here three and a half years ago and now there’s very few of that initial squad left training with me, so I almost feel it’s job complete.

    “It’s been better than I could have imagined. The standard of player and the way that they’ve progressed has been terrific.

    “This isn’t something that I have made a decision on overnight. This has been on mind for several months and I now believe the time is right.”

    Craigan, who made 363 appearances for the ‘Well during his playing career, will leave at the end of the month.

    “Stephen has been an excellent servant for Motherwell Football Club and we are really sad to see him go,” chief executive Alan Burrows said of his departure.

    “More recently, his efforts in developing young talent for our first team has seen a number of players make careers in the game, as well as achieving international honours.

    “We wish him well for the future and thank him for everything he has done, both as a coach and previously as a player and captain.

    “Following Stephen’s departure, and following feedback from him, coaching staff and others in the academy, the club intends to complete a review of the development pathway for 18 to 21 year olds at the club, prior to appointing a replacement.”

    Manager Stephen Robinson added: “I have worked closely with Stephen over the last few years here at Motherwell and I am grateful for the work he has put in to push through young talent at the club.

    “We are disappointed to see him go but respect his decision to leave the club.”

    Motherwell Football Club wishes to thank Stephen for his service and tremendous efforts throughout his three spells with the club. We all wish him well for the future.

    Stephen Robinson banned for three games

    Stephen Robinson banned for three games

    Stephen Robinson will be banned from the dugout for Motherwell’s next three matches.

    The manager admitted a breach of disciplinary rule 203 during the match with Rangers at Ibrox in November.

    A judicial panel hearing at Hampden on Thursday ruled he should serve a suspension.

    A further suspended ban of two games has also been handed down, and will automatically come into effect if Robinson breaches the same rule again before the end of the 2019/20 season.
