    Busy day for ‘Well internationals

    Busy day for ‘Well internationals

    Motherwell had six players involved in international matches on Thursday.

    Sixty-three months after making his international debut, Liam Donnelly earned his second cap for Northern Ireland as they beat Luxembourg at Windsor Park.

    The 23-year-old midfielder was a 67th minute substitute, replacing Corry Evans, with the hosts already ahead after a bizarre first-half own goal from Luxembourg defender Kevin Malget. Goalkeeper Trevor Carson was named amongst the substitutes.

    Allan Campbell started for Scotland as they got their UEFA Under 21 qualification campaign off to a winning start with victory over San Marino in Paisley.

    Campbell, Scotland’s most experienced campaigner with 16 caps, played his part, helping to create the second goal for Hibs loanee Glenn Middleton. Scot Gemmill’s side had earlier taken the lead courtesy of  Alessandro Tossi’s own goal.

    James Scott, making his debut for the 21s, and Barry Maguire were introduced as late substitutes as the Scots cruised to a comfortable 2-0 victory.

    Earlier in the afternoon, Jamie Semple came off the bench for the last half hour for Scotland U19s as they drew 1-1 with Japan in Spain.

    The midfielder played a crucial part in Scotland’s equaliser, threading a tempting pass through for Kyle Joseph to level things up, with the teams due to meet again on Monday.

    Mark O’Hara signs for Motherwell

    Mark O’Hara signs for Motherwell

    Motherwell have signed Mark O’Hara on a season-long loan from Peterborough United, subject to international clearance.

    The 23-year-old attacking midfielder becomes manager Stephen Robinson’s 11th capture of the summer window.

    Renfrewshire-born O’Hara came through the youth ranks as a defender at Kilmarnock and made his senior debut back in 2012.

    He would spend four years in the Rugby Park first team, earning Scotland Under 21 honours, before switching to Dundee in 2016, where he was converted to a more advanced role.

    After two years at Dens, where he scored 12 goals in 62 starts, he moved across the border last summer to sign for Peterborough United, after racking up 159 games in Scottish football.

    He scored four in 14 league games for Posh, before joining Lincoln City on loan in January, helping them to promotion to League One.

    “Mark adds something to our midfield that we didn’t previously have,” boss Robinson said of the signing.

    “We have been chasing him for a number of windows now, so we are delighted to have him.

    “He is already a proven player at Scottish Premiership level, and he’s still very young. He will add to what is already a very competitive midfield.”

    O’Hara will wear the number 52 jersey at Motherwell.

    “I’m really happy to be here,” he said. “Once I heard of Motherwell’s interest, I was desperate to come here.

    “It’s an exciting squad and I can’t wait to get started.”

    Craig Tanner leaves Motherwell

    Craig Tanner leaves Motherwell

    Craig Tanner has left Motherwell after turning down an offer to extend his contract.

    The forward picked up a serious knee injury in March 2018, which ruled him out for almost 15 months.

    Although his initial contract was due to expire in June of this year, the club gave Craig a short-term extension over the summer to ensure his rehabilitation was fully complete.

    After playing a number of reserve matches recently, ‘Well boss Stephen Robinson was keen to extend that further until the end of the year. But he has chosen to seek a new contract elsewhere.

    “We are disappointed Craig has chosen to leave, but we respect his decision,” Robinson said.

    “It’s been a long road back to fitness for him and he’d done brilliantly well to get back onto the pitch and playing football again.

    “We were keen to continue that push for match sharpness. But Craig has decided he’d rather continue his career elsewhere and we wish him all the very best of luck.”

    Tanner leaves after netting nine times in 36 appearances during the 2017/18 season and was a crucial part of the side which reached both the Betfred Cup and Scottish Cup finals.

    “I would like to thank the gaffer, his coaching staff and of course the medical team for everything they have done for me,” said Tanner. “They have helped me through this difficult period on and off the pitch.

    “I would like to thank the fans for their continued support from the first day to the last.

    “You all have helped me stay positive through my injury and I couldn’t put into words how grateful I am for that.

    “You have made it a pleasure to be part of Motherwell FC. I wish everyone all the best for the rest of the season. Thanks for the memories.”

    Everyone at Motherwell Football Club would like to thank Craig for all his hard work and determination whilst at the club and wish him every success in his future career.

    Adam Livingstone loaned to Morton

    Adam Livingstone loaned to Morton

    Adam Livingstone has joined Greenock Morton on loan for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

    The 21-year-old left-back, who has made five appearances for Motherwell, heads to the Championship side in pursuit of regular first-team football.

    The club has the option to recall Adam from his loan in January.

    “Adam is a boy who I believe has very good attributes,” manager Stephen Robinson said of the move.

    “But he needs first team football and Morton will provide that at a good level.

    “We have had a lot of success in loaning out our younger players, such as Barry Maguire and Jake Hastie, who have benefitted.

    “We are hopeful Adam will gain valuable experience in a first team environment. It will help him develop further and offer something reserve football can’t.”

    Motherwell’s reserve side made it back-to-back wins over Greenock Morton in a 2-0 victory on Monday.

    Jermaine Hylton and Findlay Cook got the goals for the Steelmen in the SPFL Reserve League, following on from the 4-1 win in the Reserve League Cup last week.

    Christy Manzinga featured as he continues his push towards the first team, having been sidelined with a hamstring injury prior to signing.

    Casper Sloth also featured at Broadwood, as he steps up his recovery.

    Hylton netted in the first half, receiving the pass from Dean Cornelius, fooling his marker with a stepover before firing home.

    Substitute Cook then got the second midway through the second half, with his shot from just inside the area being deflected over the goalkeeper and into the net.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Brown, Devine, Hussain, McDonald, Cornelius, Sloth, Kettings, MacIver, Hylton, Manzinga.

    Subs: Connolly, Starrs, Williamson, Muir, Cook.
