    Gretna next up for Motherwell

    Gretna will provide the third test of pre-season for Motherwell on Tuesday night.

    The Lowland League side, managed by former ‘Well hero Chris Humphrey in his first game in charge, will welcome the Steelmen to Raydale Park. Kick off is at 7.15pm.

    Crusaders and Linfield have provided the opposition so far for Stephen Robinson’s team, with a 3-0 win on Saturday against Linfield ending a week’s training camp in Northern Ireland.

    Entry is £5 for adults, with free entry for children when accompanied by a paying adult.

    Win for ‘Well at Linfield

    Christopher Long, Peter Hartley and Jake Carroll all scored as Motherwell ended their 2019 trip to Northern Ireland with a 3-0 victory over Linfield.

    Stephen Robinson again made full use of his travelling party, giving minutes to the majority of the squad across the match at Windsor Park.

    Both teams felt their way into the match before the visitors took control, with their deserved opener coming on the half hour mark.

    Good pressing led to a Linfield defender misjudging the weight of his back pass, allowing Long to run in on goal.

    Taking time to round the goalkeeper and pick his spot, the forward stroked the ball home to open the scoring.

    A raft of half-time changes then led to two substitutes getting on the scoresheet.

    Hartley was the first, heading home at the near post with two minutes on the second half clock. Liam Polworth’s free kick from the byline was powered home by the captain.

    Then, with 65 minutes gone, Carroll got in on the act with a brilliant free kick which he curled over the wall from 20 yards and into the top corner.

    Next up for Motherwell is a trip to Gretna on Tuesday night.

    David Turnbull to stay at Motherwell

    David Turnbull to stay at Motherwell

    David Turnbull is to remain a Motherwell player, with a proposed move to Celtic FC no longer taking place.

    An agreement was reached with the Glasgow club on 12 June, subject to the player agreeing personal terms, which he did, and undergoing a medical.

    During that medical process, an issue was identified that will require David to have immediate preventative surgery and subsequent rehabilitation.

    Celtic were still keen to sign the player despite this matter arising. But having presented revised transfer terms to Motherwell, the clubs could not reach an agreement.

    David will now remain at Fir Park and will shortly have an operation which will rule him out of any football for an extended period, the exact length to be determined following surgery.

    We will give David all the support he needs during this process. We wish him the best with his procedure and rehabilitation, and look forward to watching him play in claret and amber again in the near future.

    ‘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.

    The Steelmen will then face Linfield at Windsor Park on Saturday, 29 June with a 1.30pm kick off.
