The reserves made it back-to-back wins with a comfortable 4-1 victory over St Mirren.
Liam Donnelly and the returning Chris Cadden were the notable inclusions in the ‘Well starting XI.
Scotland international Cadden was playing his first Motherwell match for four and a half months, having been sidelined with a knee injury.
The young Steelmen got off to the best possible start when David Devine opened the scoring after just 85 seconds.
Jamie Semple’s near post corner was met perfectly from the big centre back, and his downward header across the goalkeeper found the back of the net.
The visitors were dominating and added a second just 17 minutes later.
Semple’s free-kick towards the penalty spot was only partially cleared and when it dropped for Cadden on the edge of the box, he unleashed an unstoppable volley past David Wilson and into the net.
Motherwell continued to push for a third before the interval.
Semple had a free-kick in a good area that sailed over the cross bar, Broque Watson brought about a smart save from Wilson with a low shot from inside the box and Donnelly fired over at the back post after good build-up play and cross from Adam Livingstone.
The second half was a similar story to the first, with ‘Well dominating much of the proceedings.
Watson had the first effort of the second half, connecting with a back-post header that was comfortable for Wilson to catch.
Shaun Bowers was introduced on the hour, in place of Cadden, and he almost got amongst the goals himself, finishing off a superb passing manoeuvre, only to see his close range shot well stopped by the Buddies keeper.
However, it was only a matter of time before a third goal arrived and when it did, it was a deserved one for the excellent Jamie Semple, who got himself on the scoresheet with a sweet low strike from the edge of the area.
Akeal Rehman came close to a fourth shortly after, cutting inside on his left foot, but Wilson was on hand to turn his low shot around for a corner.
‘Well introduced two 16-year-olds from the bench, with Jack Brown replacing David Devine and Liam Motherwell making his first bow for the reserves, taking the place of Kyle MacDonald.
The only blotch on the copybook for the visitors was a Saints goal five minutes from time. Matthew Grant forced the error inside the Motherwell box, before squaring it for the unmarked Josh Jack, with the sub having the simplest of tasks to tuck home.
However, there was no danger of a comeback and just to make sure, Liam Donnelly added an exclamation point with a fourth on the stroke of full time. Semple had been brought down on the edge of the area, allowing the former Northern Ireland Under 21 captain to step up and curl home a stunning strike to make the points safe.
