    Response to independent review into historic sexual abuse

    Response to independent review into historic sexual abuse

    Motherwell Football Club acknowledges the report of the independent review into historic sexual abuse in Scottish football.

    We sincerely apologise to anyone personally affected by historic sexual abuse within the Scottish game. We recognise that the impact of abuse on survivors and their families is not historic and continues.

    As noted in the report, Motherwell FC undertook an internal inquiry in 2016 relating to the matters raised, which included hiring additional external help to try and uncover as much information as possible.

    All of the findings were passed to the independent review, as well as Police Scotland, at that time.

    The safety and wellbeing of children and young people, whilst in the care of Motherwell Football Club, was, is and will remain a priority for the board.

    Getting tech-life balance right is focus of free e-clinic

    Getting tech-life balance right is focus of free e-clinic

    With reliance on technology soaring during the pandemic, our main partners Paycare are joining forces with Techtimeout to help people understand more about the potential wellbeing impacts of too much screen time.

    Their wellbeing manager Kerry B Mitchell is set to host the latest in a series of monthly e-clinics on Wednesday 17 February at 10am.

    This session is focused around ‘Tech-Life Balance’ and will feature guest speaker Stephanie Henson, founder of Techtimeout, a movement which encourages people to put down their phones and laptops regularly and enjoy some digital-free time.

    “Technology is a huge part of our lives,” she explains.

    “Most of us have no choice but to spend hours online – especially now work, homeschooling and socialising is mainly being done through screens.

    “What’s worrying is that research indicates that the overuse of technology can lead to feelings of isolation, anxiety and depression.

    “Technology is essential but it’s so easy to become addicted – ever lose track of time scrolling, or experience an overwhelming desire to check your phone multiple times a day, even when you don’t need to?

    “In a world where it’s near enough impossible to quit technology if it’s not supporting your mental health, it’s time to learn healthy habits and set boundaries.

    “I’m looking forward to sharing an insight into the impact of technology in the workplace and I’ll be providing actionable tips employers and employees can take to support mental wellbeing and productivity.”

    Kerry adds that all technology has a purpose and, now more than ever, it is extremely beneficial in keeping connected to enable those experiencing mental and physical health conditions to reach out to loved ones and to charities or professional support.

    However, everyone has to find a balance between technology usage and living a wholesome life.

    “We’ll be sharing information about the most up-to-date research on the topic, top tips for employers on how to support their teams to work productively from home, and suggestions about how to manage the pressure to be always online.

    “Getting the right balance between being on and offline is tricky, but it can be done – as Steph and the Techtimeout team are proving – so I’d love for people to join the session to find out more.”

    To book on to the free webinar, simply email wellbeing@paycare.org.

    In addition to monthly e-clinics, Paycare Wellbeing offers a range of training opportunities including a two-day virtual accredited MHFA course. Visit paycare,org to find out more.

    Tale of the tape

    Hamilton are unbeaten in their last four competitive Lanarkshire derbies.

    A 3-0 win at the start of 2021 at home followed a 1-0 success at Fir Park early on in the campaign.

    Motherwell started 2019/20 with a 3-1 victory at the home of their rivals, but a 2-1 home loss came before a 0-0 draw away.

    Form guide

    Motherwell made it three wins from four with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Kilmarnock in midweek.

    That success followed taking three points apiece from Dundee United and Ross County, as well as running Celtic close in Glasgow in a 2-1 defeat.

    Accies are without a win in five but came close to ending that at home to Rangers last weekend.

    A battling show looked to be in vain as the visitors took the lead late on, but Ross Callachan’s last-gasp equaliser ensured a share of the spoils.

    Manager reacts to win at Kilmarnock

    “It’s a great win. But it’s important we don’t relax. We need to keep grinding out victories.”

    The manager hails his side’s fighting spirit after another win, this time on the road at Kilmarnock.

    Kilmarnock 0-1 Motherwell

    Kilmarnock 0-1 Motherwell

    Motherwell got back to winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 win away to Kilmarnock.

    Allan Campbell’s second-half strike was the difference, paired with resolute defending from Graham Alexander’s side.

    A frantic start saw both teams have early chances from set plays. First, a ball into the ‘Well box saw Dikamona’s close-range effort blocked, before Watt fired a 25-yard free-kick off the wall.

    Motherwell were struggling to get the ball to their forwards, with Kilmarnock enjoying the bulk of the attacking play in the first half.

    Cole would have the best chance of the half. Kelly’s long-kick was flicked on by Watt into the path of his fellow forward.

    The Englishman, however, scuffed his shot from 15 yards straight into the hands of goalkeeper Doyle, and the two teams would go in level at the interval.

    Kilmarnock had the bulk of the attacking play again in the second period, but the better chances continued to fall to the Steelmen.

    Cole should have had ‘Well ahead 15 minutes into the second half. Maguire’s free-kick from the left was flicked on in the box by Lamie. Cole read it to dive in, but his header from close range was parried by Doyle.

    The visitors though did get the lead in the 71st minute.

    Manager Alexander spotted the quick throw opportunity on the left, with Carroll throwing into the feet of Watt.

    The forward hustled well, spinning inside and feeding a perfect pass into the path of Campbell, who rushed through and fired in off the bar from 15 yards.

    Storylines: Kilmarnock v Motherwell

    Storylines: Kilmarnock v Motherwell

    Motherwell head to Ayrshire on Wednesday night to take on Kilmarnock.

    Here are the key topics going into the Scottish Premiership match.

    Long overdue visit

    You have to go back to 21 December 2019 for Motherwell’s last trip to Rugby Park.

    A combination of the fixture list, the curtailment of the 2019/20 season and the postponement of this fixture earlier in the campaign means it’s almost 14 months since the Steelmen last made the trip south.

    On that occasion, Jake Carroll’s free-kick gave Motherwell all three points in a 1-0 victory.

    Tightly packed

    One point separates the two teams going into Wednesday night’s match.

    Motherwell are the side a point better off, sitting ninth and one position above their opponents.

    ‘Well have also played a game less, with a rearranged match with St Mirren still to come.

    While both teams will be looking over their shoulders, a top six place is also still attainable, with St Mirren currently seven points ahead of Motherwell.

    New man in the dugout

    Wednesday’s match will be Tommy Wright’s first of charge of Kilmarnock, having been appointed as manager on Monday.

    The Northern Irishman, of course, is no stranger to Motherwell, having successfully guided St Johnstone to cup success and numerous top six finishes in the Scottish Premiership.
