    Women add to squad ahead of maiden SWPL1 season

    Women add to squad ahead of maiden SWPL1 season

    Donald Jennow has bolstered his squad with a host of new faces ahead of Motherwell’s first season in SWPL1.

    Among the recruits are Sarah Crilly, who has been capped four times by Scotland and moves from Celtic to add further experience to the midfield, having also spent three years with Glasgow City.

    Her international debut made the headlines back in 2012. Attending a friendly match with Norway as a fan, having trained with the team the previous day, a succession of injuries led to her being called from the stands to join the action. Even more remarkably, wearing oversized kit and boots, she scored the equaliser in a 2-2 draw.

    Katie Rice was formerly with Hamilton and the 19-year-old has been capped at various youth levels by Scotland. She’s also joined by her former Accies team-mate Lori Gardner, who plays up front.

    Mhairi Fyfe has spent time in recent years in the United States of America, breaking records with Campbellsville University Tigers in Kentucky, becoming their all-time record goal scorer.

    Goalkeeper Morgan Hunter joins from Kilmarnock, having faced us in SWPL2 last season, as did her ex-Killie team-mate Kirsten Rolph and Morgan Hay, who signs on from Glasgow Girls.

    Claire Adams made the switch from Rangers to Celtic for the 2018 season, with the 20-year-old midfielder joining from the Glasgow side alongside defender Georgie Rafferty, who has also joined the women of steel.

    They are joined by current Scotland Under 17 international Chelsea McEachran, former EUHV forward Beth McLeod, Stephanie Knox, who spent a short spell with us at the start of last season, Sam McManus, who has been promoted from our development squad, and former Scotland youth cap midfielder Stacey Hutchison, who has signed on from Hearts.

    Kendall Welsh, Kerry Montgomery, Hayley Cunningham, Natasha Roberts and Maxine Welsh have been retained from the squad that were crowned SWPL2 champions, and they are joined by Caitlin Russell, who has made her loan spell from Hibernian permanent.

    “It has been a busy close season for us and there have been significant changes to the playing squad,” manager Jennow said.

    “I am delighted to have some really important players sign up again for the season ahead. Kendall, Maxine, Natasha, Kerry, Hayley and Caitlin all played significant roles in the success the club had and are players I know are excited by the challenge ahead.

    “To supplement those returning, we have recruited a number of very talented players. I am sure will they will fit in well. We have brought in players who will work hard, are motivated and can create moments that win games.

    “There are also a number of players who have left the club and they all depart with our best wishes and the knowledge they helped the club reach SWPL1.”

    Players speak after win over Dundee

    Goal scorer David Turnbull, Allan Campbell and Alex Rodriguez Gorrín spoke after Motherwell made it three league wins from three in a 1-0 victory against Dundee.

    “The manager asked us if we could follow up from the game on Wednesday night, and we did,” Rodríguez-Gorrin said.

    Robinson pleased with win at Dundee

    Stephen Robinson praised his players after they picked up a third consecutive league win – defeating Dundee 1-0 at Dens Park.

    The ‘Well boss highlighted his sides’ desire and attitude to bounce back after Scottish Cup disappointment, and wants to see them maintain their consistency.

    “In terms of the response and character of the players, it’s been fantastic,” he said.

    “We were organised and disciplined, and you can see our confidence building.

    Motherwell pick up another win at Dundee

    Motherwell pick up another win at Dundee

    Motherwell made it three league wins in a row with a 1-0 win against Dundee at Dens Park.

    David Turnbull’s second half penalty was the difference between the two sides, and increases the gap from 10th placed Hamilton to 13 points.

    Stephen Robinson named the same eleven from Wednesday night’s win over Hibernian to take on the Dee, with three academy products starting the game in Allan Campbell, Jake Hastie and goalscorer Turnbull.

    And, in truth, it was an afternoon in which the Steelmen had to dig in deep.

    It was Dundee, forced in to an early change when Jesse Curran made way for Roarie Deacon, who looked the side likeliest to open the scoring.

    Gary Woods went close just after the half hour mark, but should have made more of his chance from the edge of the box, which he could only slice wide of the mark.

    On the stroke of half time, Jim McIntyre’s men should have taken the lead, but Andrew Nelson got his effort horribly wrong when one-on-one with Mark Gillespie and missed the target completely.

    The second half started with Dundee continuing where they left off, and the home support sensing a goal was coming.

    But it was the travelling Fir Parker’s who got off the mark, when substitute Elliott Frear was tripped in the box, giving Willie Collum no choice but to point to the spot.

    Up stepped Turnbull, who made no mistake as he sent Dundee keeper Seny Dieng the wrong way.

    Dundee looked to respond through the tricky Andrew Dales and Deacon on either flank, but the latter couldn’t take advantage of two big opportunities late on, and the Steelmen held strong for all three points.

    In Numbers: ‘Well travel to take on Dundee

    In Numbers: ‘Well travel to take on Dundee

    Motherwell face a trip to Dens Park in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday, with three points important to both sides for different reasons.

    The Dee will be looking to cut the gap between themselves and the sides above them, whilst the Steelmen could see themselves move further from the foot of the table.

    Here, we look at the fixture in numbers.

    7

    The number of meeting between the two sides since Dundee last picked up a win, back in April 2017.

    Since that 3-2 win for Dundee, the Fir Parkers have won six and drawn once.

    Four of those have been victories at Dens Park.

    15

    The Steelmen have huge incentive as they head for Dens Park, with the chance to go 15 points clear from the foot of the table.

    The Dee, currently eleventh in the league, could cut the gap to as little as eight points.

    It makes for an intriguing encounter in the 23rd league fixture of the 2018/19 campaign.

    205

    Saturday’s clash will be the 205th league meeting between the two sides.

    Dundee edge the historical head-to-head record, racking up 91 victories in that time.

    Motherwell have 71 wins, alongside 42 draws, ahead of the latest clash between the two clubs on Saturday.

    Need to Know: A look at Dundee

    Need to Know: A look at Dundee

    Dundee play host to Motherwell for the second time this season on Saturday.

    Here’s the lowdown on our Ladbrokes Premiership opponents.

    Recent form

    The Dark Blues have won two of their last 10 league matches, with their most recent victory coming in style at Hearts at the weekend.

    Before then, a win at home to Hamilton at the start of December was a rare bright spark in a run that saw them draw with St Mirren, Hibernian, Rangers and Livingston, while losing to Kilmarnock, Aberdeen, Celtic and St Johnstone.

    Fresh faces

    Dundee have added to their squad in the January window.

    Seny Dieng arrived on loan from QPR in goals, and has been joined by a host of other new faces.

    Also joining him have been Halmstad defender Andreas Hadenius, Sunderland forward Andrew Nelson, Craig Curran, Scunthorpe pair James Horsfield and Andy Dales.

    Andrew Davies also signed on in January, but has since suffered a foot injury which will rule him out of action.

    Miller the marksman

    Dundee have netted 17 times so far in the 2018/19 league season, and Kenny Miller has weighed in with seven of those goals.

    Of players still at the club, seven other players have netted once, meaning Miller has scored as many as the rest of the current squad put together.

    Robinson looks ahead to Dens Park trip

    Stephen Robinson is calling on his side to find consistency as they prepare for Saturday’s clash against Dundee.

    The manager was pleased with his team in their 1-0 win over Hibernian on Wednesday, but insists they need to produce the goods regularly.

    “We’re trying to find our consistency and I believe it will come. We showed signs on Wednesday night, but we need to follow that up,” he said.
