    Women beat Saints in second friendly

    Motherwell recorded their first victory of 2019 with an impressive 3-1 victory over St Johnstone.

    Following up from last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Newcastle, Donald Jennow’s side went one better in the cold and windy conditions at McDiarmid Park.

    It was the hosts who broke the deadlock after six minutes through their captain Jade McDonald, but ‘Well came battling back and Kerry Montgomery headed home an equaliser just after the half hour mark.

    There were chances at both ends early in the second half before Chelsea McEachran fired ‘Well in front with quarter of an hour remaining and Sarah Crilly put the game beyond doubt when she swept home after 86 minutes.

    The women of steel started the game brightly and there was chances for Crilly and Katie Rice before Saints took the lead.

    Motherwell were caught out in possession, allowing the hosts to counter and McDonald rounded Morgan Hunter before calmly rolling the ball into the net.

    A back and forth game followed with both sides creating plenty of chances, Ellie May Cowie continued to look dangerous for the home side while Montgomery was pulling the strings in midfield for the ‘Well, continuously looking to exploit the space in behind the defence.

    The equaliser arrived after 32 minutes, when Montgomery rose highest to power home a header despite the best effort of the Saints defender on the line.

    Hunter twice denied Cowie to ensure the game was level at the break and the former Killie keeper again produced a brilliant stop to deny the midfielder after the restart.

    ‘Well were also carrying a threat in attack and the ever dangerous Crilly saw her looping shot cannon back off the crossbar before Rice was denied by a good save.

    With 15 minutes remaining the turnaround was complete, the Saints defence were unable to scramble clear Hayley Cunningham’s corner and McEachran smashed the ball high into the roof of the net

    The game was put beyond doubt with four minutes left on the clock and it came from yet another flowing Motherwell attack.

    Cunningham burst into the box brilliantly and laid the ball to Maxine Welsh who saw her shot blocked before Crilly converted to cap an excellent showing with a goal.

    Motherwell get their SWPL1 campaign underway in two weeks time when they host Stirling University at Ravenscraig.

    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.
