    ‘Well lose opening friendly at Crusaders

    Twenty-one players got playing time as Motherwell lost 1-0 to Crusaders in their opening pre-season friendly.

    Rory Hale’s first half effort from close range was the difference between the two teams, as manager Stephen Robinson changed his outfield players entirely for both halves.

    Motherwell’s first game of the 2019/20 campaign saw plenty of composed play, but scoring chances were at a premium.

    Against an opposition preparing for a tilt at UEFA Europa League qualification, the mixed ‘Well teams continued preparation which had included two double training sessions in the two days previous, with more to come before Saturday’s tour closer at Linfield.

    Motherwell first half: Carson, Grimshaw, Hartley, Gallagher, Livingstone, Maguire, Campbell, Sloth, Long, Johnson, Semple.

    Motherwell second half: Carson, Tait, Devine, Dunne, Carroll, Donnelly, Cornlius, McAlear, Polworth, Hylton, Scott.

    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.
