    Willie Pettigrew to be inducted to Hall of Fame

    Willie Pettigrew to be inducted to Hall of Fame

    Willie Pettigrew is the first inductee in the Motherwell FC Hall of Fame.

    A goal scorer of distinction at the club during the 1970s, Pettigrew netted 20 top-flight goals at the peak of his powers in 1974/75, and 21 more the following campaign.

    His partnership with Bobby Graham brought goals but also international recognition, where he went on to score on his debut for Scotland against Switzerland in April 1976.

    Over 166 appearances for the Steelmen, Pettigrew scored 80 goals and is a deserving first member in our Hall of Fame.

    He will be formally inducted at a dinner at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel on Saturday, 23 November, along with four others.

    Hosted by Tam Cowan, tickets for the event are now on sale online. Adult tickets are £45, with kids tickets £22.

    A fan vote to induct others will be held soon.

    Liam Donnelly signs extended contract

    Liam Donnelly signs extended contract

    Liam Donnelly has extended his contract with Motherwell until the summer of 2022.

    The Northern Irishman becomes the first this campaign to commit to the club, after a storming start to the season in claret and amber.

    “I am delighted to have signed a new deal at the club”. Donnelly said. “This season has completely exceeded my expectations.

    “It was my goal to establish myself in the first team, first and foremost. It was also my ambition to get back into the Northern Ireland setup, and to have achieved both so early in the campaign has been fantastic.

    “I’m set now on continuing to improve and contribute to the team.”

    The former Fulham and Hartlepool midfielder has started the season in sensational form, scoring eight goals in 11 games, scooping the July and August player of the month awards in the process.

    His form was rewarded with a recall to the full Northern Ireland squad, where he made his return and earned his second full cap against Luxembourg last month, five years after making his debut against Chile.

    The 23-year-old’s deal was due to expire at the end of 2019/20. His new agreement will take him through to the summer of 2022.

    Manager Stephen Robinson added: “We are delighted Liam has committed to the club for the foreseeable future.

    “Liam has earned the new deal with some very good performances and being rewarded with full international recognition.

    “He will continue to improve in all aspects and he is someone we felt we need to protect as an asset to the football club.

    “By extending his deal, it ensures we continue to build and protect key players in the last year of their contracts.”

    Next up: St Mirren

    St Mirren are the visitors to Motherwell on Saturday, as the Steelmen chase another win going into the October international break.

    With four wins from their last five matches, Stephen Robinson’s men are looking to keep third place in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Kick off at Fir Park on Saturday is at 3pm.

    Tale of the tape

    Motherwell sit on 13 points from seven games in the Ladbrokes Premiership so far.

    Victory over St Johnstone last weekend was the fourth win in five, a run interrupted only by defeat to Ross County in the last match at Fir Park.

    St Mirren sit 10th in the Premiership so far, with one win from their opening seven games.

    Their sole victory came in a 1-0 win over Aberdeen at home in August. Their last two game have ended in goalless draws, both coming at home against Hamilton and Hearts.

    On the road, they’ve lost all three so far at the hands of Hibernian, St Mirren and Livingston.

    Head to head

    Both sides have won two of the last five encounters between the sides, with one draw.

    The last match came at Fir Park in May, with David Turnbull’s opener being cancelled out at the death by Kyle Magennis in a 1-1 draw.

    Motherwell won both games at St Mirren Park last campaign, while the Buddies were 1-0 winners in December at Fir Park.

    Reserves lose at Dundee United

    Reserves lose at Dundee United

    A youthful Motherwell reserve side lost out 4-1 at Dundee United in the Reserve League on Monday.

    Maurice Ross’ side acquitted themselves well but the experience in the ranks of the hosts ultimately told.

    A double for Cammy Smith, and further goals for Louis Appere and Darren Watson, were enough to overcome the visitors, who netted at 3-0 through Jamie Semple’s long-range effort.

    Motherwell took time to get into the game and were punished with 22 minutes on the clock. A headed clearance by Sam Muir didn’t have much distance, and Smith did well to crash a volley home from 20 yards.

    Hale and Manzinga both had chances soon after, before the hosts doubled their advantage on the half-hour mark..

    With calls for offside from the ‘Well defence, Appere got in behind and netted, despite PJ Morrison getting something on it.

    MacIver and Manzinga again had chances in the first period before with the latter also had a succession of efforts kept out early in the second 45.

    The striker had the ball in the net during a long spell of Motherwell dominance, but his steered effort from Cornelius’ shot came with him in an offside position.

    United would get another on the counter against the run of play in the 58th minute. Smith found room and although his initial shot was saved, he turned in the rebound past Morrison.

    The Steelmen got the goal their play deserved with 25 minutes remaining. Semple found room from 25 yards and crashed a shot off the crossbar and over the line.

    Sensing the chance to get a foothold back in the game, Well continued to push. But they were to be undone on the counter when the trialist defender hauled down Watson in the area.

    The substitute forward picked himself up to fire home the penalty with 10 minutes left.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Cornelius, Muir, Trialist, Brown, Semple (McGuigan), Kettings, Hale, MacIver, Starrs (McSwegan), Manzinga.

    Subs not used: Connolly.

    Motherwell lose out to Hibernian

    Motherwell lose out to Hibernian

    Motherwell battled bravely as their unbeaten run came to an end against Champions League participants Hibernian in SWPL1 on Sunday.

    With Donald Jennow’s side set to face the Edinburgh side in the Scottish Cup semi-finals, the match at Ravenscraig was a rehearsal and a chance to pick up a positive result against one of the nation’s top teams.

    The visitors always prove tough opponents, but the women of steel’s performance arguably merited more than the 2-0 defeat.

    After having a number of first half chances, Motherwell would be undone just after the half hour mark. A ball over the top was met by Colette Cavanagh, who was able to knock the ball into the net.

    Having more than held their own in the first 45, the second half started in disappointing fashion as Hibs doubled their lead.

    A free-kick was well saved, but Cavanagh was on hand to tee up Chelsea Cornet to fire home.

    The visitors had chances to extend their lead, but Motherwell more than held their own in a dogged second half performance.
