    March against prostate cancer with Jeff Stelling

    March against prostate cancer with Jeff Stelling

    Jeff Stelling is coming to Fir Park as part of another epic walking challenge for Prostate Cancer UK.

    The Sky Sports presenter and marathon man has already completed 25 walking marathons for the men’s health charity, and will now span another four countries in four days in September 2019.

    The Scottish leg of his tour kicks off at Hampden Park on 5 September, making his way to numerous stadiums across Glasgow and Lanarkshire before ending in ML1.

    If you want to raise money for the charity, you can join him on the walk by signing up at marchformen.org. What’s more, you can use the code MOTHERWELL10 to get 10% off the £30 entry fee.

    Having raised close to £800,000 across 2016 and 2017, he’s aiming to march through the £1m fundraising barrier as he travels here, before heading on to Belfast, Cardiff and London.

    Over 26,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer in Scotland, emphasising the need to raise awareness and funds.

    “It’s three years since I started this life-saving journey at the gates of my club, Hartlepool United, but there is still so much work to do,” said Jeff.

    “Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with one man dying every 45 minutes from this disease. That’s unacceptable, and that’s why I’m walking again.

    “It’s an indiscriminate disease, affecting men and their loved ones across the UK. I’ve walked alongside many of them and am proud to call some friends. Their reaction and positive outlook despite being dealt the toughest of hands is simply unbelievable. I’m marching for them – and everyone affected – in a bid to fund the research to change the game.”

    Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson wears the Prostate Cancer UK pin badge in support the charity at every game.

    “It’s going to be great to welcome Jeff and the walkers to Fir Park in September,” said the ‘Well manager,

    “I’m sure there will be some tired legs arriving as Motherwell is the final stop, but every walker can be proud of the terrific efforts they’ll have made for Prostate Cancer UK.”

    Fee agreed with Celtic for David Turnbull

    Fee agreed with Celtic for David Turnbull

    Motherwell Football Club has reached an agreement with Celtic FC for the potential transfer of David Turnbull.

    The academy graduate has been given permission to speak to the club. Should the deal go through, the value of the transfer will vastly exceed our previous record fee received.

    We have rejected several seven-figure offers for David in recent weeks, with clubs the length and breadth of the UK speaking to us about him. It is clear from that the fee we stand to receive fully maximises his potential value.

    We have continued to stand by what we believe is a fair value for David. In light of the negotiating stance we have adopted, the money we stand to receive will be transformational for us as we continue to operate as a fan-owned club.

    Motherwell FC will make no further comment at this time.

  • Reserves & Under 18s

    Seven new academy graduates sign on

    Seven new academy graduates sign on

    Seven players will make the step up from the Motherwell academy to sign professional terms at the club.

    Sam Muir, Matthew McDonald, Cammy Williamson, Findlay Cook, Paul Hale, Lewis Robertson and Matty Connolly have all agreed to turn pro, having risen through the ranks.

    All seven will now form part of Maurice Ross’ reserve group for the 2019/20 season, as well as being under the tutelage of new Under 18s coach Darren O’Dea.

    Three defenders are part of the new crop and all are 16 years old. Sam Muir is a left back or left-sided centre back, Matthew McDonald is a right back and Cammy Williamson plays at left back.

    The trio have been at the academy for a prolonged period of time, rising through the ranks from the ages of 11 and 12.

    Paul Hale and Lewis Robertson are two young midfielders. Paul Hale, who has been at the academy for six years, is a central midfielder while Lewis Robertson, recruited from Rangers, plays as an attacking midfielder.

    Seventeen-year-old Findlay Cook has been in the academy for three-and-a-half years, with the forward also making the step up.

    Finally, 16-year-old goalkeeper Matty Connolly signs professional terms having already had a brief taste of being around the first team.

    The youngster, who has been at Motherwell since he was seven years old, was involved in the warm ups at the home match with St Mirren in May, after the team went down to one registered ‘keeper through illness and injury.

    “We are excited by what the seven boys will offer the club now they are on professional terms,” Motherwell’s academy director Steven Hammell said.

    “The boys all have inspiration to look towards when it comes to how quickly their careers can progress.

    “It’s up to them now to continue to learn and develop, and we’re hopeful they all have the attitude to give themselves every chance of a long career in the game.”

    Last year’s crop have already made significant strides in their professional careers.

    Dean Cornelius made his first team debut at the end of the 2018/19 season, while Stuart McKinstry and Reece McAlear were involved in some matchday squads.

    Christopher Long signs for Motherwell

    Christopher Long signs for Motherwell

    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?

    Habit.
