    Double Your Money deal extended to season end

    Double Your Money deal extended to season end

    Two years ago, Les Hutchison made a generous offer to match every £1 raised through the Well Society by reducing the loan balance due to him by the club up to a maximum of £500,000.

    This was originally for a one year period, before being extended for a further year. Motherwell fans responded in tremendous fashion, raising close to £400,000 over the last two years through pledges, donations, share sales and other fundraising events and initiatives.

    Mr Hutchison has now generously offered to keep the “Double Your Money” offer open until the end of May 2019, giving us a real chance of hitting that original target and raising £500,000.

    “The gesture from Les Hutchison to further extend his offer of Double Your Money to the end of the season is a fantastic one and appreciated by all at the Well Society,” Well Society co-chairman Douglas Dickie said.

    “It is a fantastic boost to both the Well Society and in turn our football club. This allows us the chance to take advantage of his original offer of match funding our fundraising to a maximum of £500,000.

    “I thank all members who have helped us get so close to this target over a two year period. We are currently standing at just under £400,000 and ask for their continued support to achieve our target and beyond. “

    Here is how you can help the Well Society reach its target:

    Join the Well Society. If you haven’t yet done so you can join us today from just £5 per month.

    Pledge to the Well Society. If you are an existing member but aren’t pledging monthly, you can do so today.

    Increase your pledge. Pledging members can increase their pledge to help even more.

    Make a one-off donation. If you don’t want to make a monthly commitment, you can make an annual or one-off payment to contribute to the Well Society.

    Keep an eye out for our other fundraising initiatives including auctions and events. Thank you for all your support.

    Our lottery scheme to help invest money in youth development and our academy has changed.

    Our new Well Lottery allows you the chance to win up to £25,000, while also continuing to back the future players of the club.

    Still priced at £1 per entry, our new  providers Unity will also offer up smaller prizes of £1,000 and £25.

    What’s more, if you sign up now, you can win hospitality for two to our match with Hearts on Sunday, 17 February.

    HOW TO JOIN THE NEW WELL LOTTERY

    To join the new Well Lottery, you can now choose one of the following options:

    • Fill in the lottery leaflet provided and return via the freepost address provided to Unity.
    • Download a lottery leaflet from the Well Lottery website and return to Unity by post.
    • Sign up online here.

    Once you have signed up, you will receive a letter welcoming you to the lottery which will tell you your lottery numbers. You will then be entered into the draw for as long as you wish to play.

    HOW DOES THE NEW WELL LOTTERY WORK?

    We have teamed up with Unity to run the Well Lottery. For as little as £1 per week, you’ll have the chance to win up to £25,000. At least 50p of every £1 played goes straight to youth development but most importantly, there are no ongoing costs to the club.

    HOW IS IT DIFFERENT TO THE OLD LOTTERY?

    New lottery numbers: Every player will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. If you match your number with the winning number drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence, you can win up to £25,000.

    Higher prize fund: Through Unity, we can now offer a higher weekly jackpot of £25,000, with smaller prizes of £1,000, £25 and five entries into the next draw on offer.

    More payment options: You can join the lottery by direct debit, credit card or cheque.

    Proceeds: Every £1 ticket gains Motherwell FC at least 50p towards the club’s youth development and academy programme.

    No change to the ticket price: It’s still £1 to play.

    WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

    Every £1 is split three ways. At least 50p of every £1 comes straight to Motherwell FC, which is put towards the club’s youth Development and academy programme. The other 50p covers the cost of the administration of the lottery, and goes towards the fantastic prize fund.

    HOW DO I WIN?

    Every player of the new Well Lottery will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. This idea is to match your number with the winning number that is drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence. Every entry in the Unity lottery has an equal one in 63 chance of winning a prize.

    For example:

    325764 – random winning number

    326574 – your lottery number

    This is a three-number match, winning five entries into the next draw.

    HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE WON?

    Players are notified automatically, and prizes sent out by post, so you do not need to claim your prize. If you would like to check the winning number each week, these can be found on Unity’s website and here on the official Motherwell FC website.

    WHAT IS UNITY?

    Unity is a platform on which charities run their own fundraising lottery. It is run by an external lottery manager, Sterling Lotteries, who administer hundreds of charity lotteries for clients across the country.

    Manager: We will keep looking to improve

    Stephen Robinson was pleased with his side’s performance in the win over Livingston, but says he will keep pushing his side to improve.

    In-form Motherwell see off Livingston

    Motherwell made it four Ladbrokes Premiership wins from four with a scintillating performance against Livingston.

    Youngster Jake Hastie will take the plaudits for two brilliantly taken goals, but the Steelmen as a whole showed confidence and verve throughout to pull level on points with the visitors.

    For the third match in succession, manager Stephen Robinson named an unchanged starting team. The only change came on the bench, with James Scott stepping up to replace the departed Gaël Bigirimana.

    Within six minutes, the home side were off and running. A great delivery from David Turnbull from a free kick was met by the head of Hastie, who beat Liam Kelly to grab his second goal in claret and amber.

    Six minutes later, it was two. Curtis Main, the scourge of the Livi defenders throughout, was played in by Allan Campbell to the right inside the box. Lifting the ball, he found the top right corner of the net to double the advantage.

    A shell shocked Livingston were further put to the sword, as Gboly Ariyibi and Hastie continued to torment from the wide areas.

    With 20 minutes gone, Hastie was again on the scoresheet. Picking the ball up deep, he surged at the defence, taking out men in his wake, before cooly slotting home to make it 3-0 in rapid time.

    At half time, Livingston rang the changes. A triple substitution saw them increase their physicality in the second period but the game fizzled out into a midfield battle and a succession of half chances for either side.

    The biggest chance fell t0 Motherwell. Campbell was set up brilliantly by Main, but his shot was headed off the line, and then Hastie saw his shot at a hat trick just deflected over the bar.

    With a minute to spare, Tiffoney saw his shot come back off the post for Livi, but the Steelmen held firm again to record a third consecutive league clean sheet, and a fourth straight win in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Motherwell: Gillespie, Grimshaw, Aldred, Dunne, Tait, Rodriguez Gorrín, Campbell, Turnbull, Ariyibi (Frear), Hastie (McCormack), Main (Scott).

    Subs not used: Ferguson, McHugh, Hartley, Johnson .

    Livingston: Kelly, Gallagher, Halkett, Lithgow, Lawless (Odoffin), Byrne, Pittman, Sibbald (Lawson), Erskine (Menga), Tiffoney, Hardie.

    Subs not used: Stewart, Brown, Lamie, Wylde.

    Robinson reflects on January transfer window

    Stephen Robinson discusses his January transfer business ahead of Saturday’s match against Livingston. 

    The ‘Well boss praised the attitude and desire of his young players breaking through, after David Turnbull put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year contract extension.

    “I believe in this squad and that there’s even more young players to come through,” he said.

    Need to Know: A look at Livingston

    Need to Know: A look at Livingston

    Motherwell face Livingston in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday, in what is set to be an interesting encounter at Fir Park.

    Gary Holt’s side are in their worst run of the season so far, whilst Stephen Robinson’s side are in their best.

    Here is what you need to know about ahead of Saturday’s game.

    Big three points

    Just three points separate the two teams in the league, which heaps importance on to this match for both sides.

    Three points for the Steelmen could play a part in their top six aspirations and move them further away from the foot of the table.

    Livingston meanwhile, could move back above Hibs in the table with a win.

    Cadden’s won’t collide

    The last time the two sides met at Fir Park, the prospect of Chris Cadden going up against his twin brother Nicky was naturally a focal point in the build-up.

    However, this time around, neither of the two will be included in their matchday squads.

    Chris still finds himself sidelined with a knee injury, whilst Nicky completed a deadline day loan move to Championship side Ayr United.

    New faces on show

    Although the Cadden’s won’t feature, there will be some new faces on show in Lanarkshire tomorrow.

    The Lions added a number of new faces, including Chris Erskine, Ciaron Brown, Hakeem Odofin and Gregg Wylde.
