Christopher Long signs for Motherwell
Monday 10 June 2019
Christopher Long is the latest Motherwell recruit ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The English forward has signed an initial one-year deal and will officially join on the expiry of his contract with Blackpool this month.
Long, 24, is a product of the Everton youth academy and has experience in the English Championship and League One.
“We’ve been keen to add players in the forward positions and Chris will bring another element to our attack,” manager Stephen Robinson said of his sixth signing of the summer.
“He’s got pace to burn, has an incredible work rate and can play anywhere across the front three, which will give us plenty of variety going forward.”
Liverpudlian Long spent time on loan with MK Dons and Brentford while on the books at Everton, scoring four goals in 11 games with the latter in the second tier.
An appearance in the UEFA Europa League came with the Toffees in 2014, getting on the pitch against FC Krasnodar in a game which also saw former ‘Well players Russell Griffiths and Conor Grant on the bench.
A permanent move to then-Championship side Burnley followed in 2015, before further loan spells at Fleetwood Town, Northampton Town and Bolton Wanderers.
After three years at Turf Moor, he signed at Fleetwood Town at the start of last season, before switching to Blackpool in January.
“I can’t wait to get started,” Long said on signing for the club.
“I’ve seen a number of my ex-team mates and players I’ve come up against join the club in the past and become a success. I’m hoping to follow in their footsteps.”

What if you could have a second place to call home?
Wednesday 05 June 2019
Many of you have been coming to Fir Park for many, many years. Some of you have been with us for a while. Others might just be starting their love affair with the club, or you might be bringing along your next generation to get them hooked on the ‘Well.
We all have the things we do on matchday. Call them habits or, for most, superstitions. The same routine. The same breakfast. Wearing the same top if we won the week before. Take the steps up to the stand two at a time. The same seat for years on end. Don’t leave that seat for any reason until the half-time or full-time whistle goes. And so on.
You’ll have your habits. Whatever they are, let’s keep them going into the 2019/20 season.
Over 2,500 Motherwell fans have already decided to keep their traditions going for the forthcoming campaign. We had 4,300 commit to a season ticket for 2018/19 – and we want to try and surpass that record-breaking number again this year.
Motherwell will learn their SSE Scottish Women’s Cup third round opponents on Wednesday.
Last year’s beaten finalists go into the hat as one of 32 teams in the draw at 4pm.
Donald Jennow’s side are in a free draw, meaning they could be paired with holders Hibernian or league leaders Glasgow City.
Alternatively they could take on fourth tier sides such as West Park United, who currently play in the same league as ‘Well’s development side.
Fixture information, venue and dates will be announced soon after the draw.

The game will take place on Tuesday, 2 July at Raydale Park, ‘Well’s first ever fixture at the ground, with kick-off set at 7.15pm.
Wednesday, 17 June: Players return for pre season Monday 24 to Friday 28 June: Training camp in Belfast Wednesday 26 June v Crusaders (A) Saturday 29 June v Linfield (A) Tuesday 2 July v Gretna (A) Saturday 6 July v Darlington (A)

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 WELL LOTTERY WORK?
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.
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 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.
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.
