    Win for ‘Well at Forfar in SWPL1

    Win for ‘Well at Forfar in SWPL1

    Motherwell gained a brilliant three points on the road in a 1-0 win over Forfar Farmington.

    Jade Gallon’s first-half goal closed the gap between the two teams to two points, as the season races to its climax.

    An-end-to-end game saw chances for either team in both halves.

    Forfar started the quicker of the two teams, which saw them with several set pieces and corners into the Motherwell box to put pressure on the away team.

    However, it was a set-piece for Motherwell the saw the only goal of the game.

    A perfectly delivered ball from Chelsie Watson was met by on-loan midfielder Gallon, who expertly looped a header back across the goal past the helpless Forfar goalkeeper with 20 minutes played.

    The remainder for the half saw Motherwell have the better of the chances, with shots from Lori Gardner, Abby Callaghan and Gill Inglis either blocked or just going by the post.

    Watson then almost had a goal of her own before the interval, only for her free-kick to slam off the bar.

    Both teams cancelled each other out for large spells of the second half.

    Motherwell had the better of the play – and the majority of the ball – but without creating anything clear cut.

    Towards the end, and with the game becoming frantic, Forfar began to create half chances.

    Goalkeeper Lauren McGregor pulled off a couple of fine saves to ensure the game would not end differently, and see the women of steel pick up another valuable three points.

    Dundee United 2-2 Motherwell

    Dundee United 2-2 Motherwell

    Motherwell staged another two-goal comeback to take a point in a 2-2 draw at Dundee United.

    Tyler Magloire replaced Declan Gallagher in defence in the only change to the starting team, with Scott Fox returning on the bench after missing the vast majority of the season through injury.

    Graham Alexander’s men headed to Tannadice looking to exorcise the demons from the last-gasp draw inflicted on them on Boxing Day, but would suffer an early blow.

    Allan Campbell appeared to twist his ankle in a 50-50 challenge and, despite treatment, was forced off after six minutes in what was due to be his penultimate appearance for the club before a summer departure.

    With ‘Well missing him, it would be the visitors who would take the lead soon after. Chalmers’ shot from distance took a hit off Shankland on the way to goal, wrongfooting goalkeeper Kelly and nestling in the net.

    Motherwell would continue to push. Hastie curled an effort wide from inside the box, and Long’s running was carving him out chances, one which dropped particularly close past the far post.

    Then, with 17 minutes gone, ‘Well would undo their positive work. A defensive lapse saw Magloire fell his man in the area, giving Shankland the chance to make it two from the spot.

    The Scotland international however saw ‘keeper Kelly guess correctly but his dive was not required, with Shankland dragging the ball past the left post.

    A facial blow to Campbell replacement Crawford left Motherwell down to 10 men for spells in the midway point of the half but the men in blue held firm against waves of United pressure.

    That dam would burst shortly after the half-hour mark.

    Quick play down the right from United led to youngster Meekison being in space outside the box on the right. Picking his spot, he curled well past Kelly into the bottom-left corner of the net.

    Motherwell continued to push, with Long’s running causing particular trouble, but the two teams would go in at the break having suffered contrasting fortunes.

    The second half would start more positively. Long’s tireless endeavour continued to take the visitors up the park, and he would get his rewards 10 minutes into the half.

    Advancing into the area, he tied his man in knots on the left before rifling a shot from 10 yards in at the near post through the ‘keeper.

    Both sides would continue to trade blows, with Hastie coming closest in the mid part of the match, seeing his shot from a tight angle blocked.

    Then, in stoppage time, the breakthrough came. With most in the box, goalkeeper sent a free-kick from the halfway line into the area.

    Lamie rose brilliantly to flick it on and Cole stole in to smash the ball home to equalise and earn a hard-fought point.

    Now more than ever we need your backing

    Now more than ever we need your backing

    As we begin to get a bit more clarity about how we might finally exit from lockdown, we ask you to consider becoming a season ticket holder for 2021/22.

    This has been a very difficult year for all of us. I hope that you and your family are safe and well. As a club and support, we should be proud of the role we have played in handling the pandemic.

    We have stood together as a community, making sure we give each other comfort and hope. As a club, in conjunction with our Community Trust, we are always looking for ways to help, including our delivery of food parcels to those in need, collections for various food banks around Lanarkshire and ensuring the town’s Christmas lights were put up across the festive period.

    Our club is a family. A family which extends to all of those we come into contact with, whether they follow our team or not. We have demonstrated this in the most trying of times and we will continue to do so.

    We can now turn to what lies in front of us, which we think could include the return of supporters to Fir Park in time for the start of the new season.

    When we asked you to buy season tickets for the 2020/21 campaign, that involved a huge leap of faith. We could offer no assurances on when you would be able to see the team in person, nor even if you would be at Fir Park at all over the year.

    As we all know, our stadium sat empty, without your presence for all 22 of the matches we played. And yet you committed to us in your thousands, buying tickets and playing a major part in ensuring we could continue to operate on and off the pitch.

    We also made a pledge at that time, which was that you would be able to see 19 league games in person, no matter the circumstances. We will honour that commitment and ensure that everyone who bought a season ticket for 2020/21 will get another one for 2021/22 at no extra cost. The philosophy of our club is simple to state – do the right thing by our supporters. And we will.

    We will also offer the option to claim your money back in full. If anyone needs that refund then please do ask for it.

    In addition, we are providing two other alternatives. Firstly, if you are in a position to do so, we are giving you the opportunity to donate money to our Community Trust to help continue the exceptional work we have done both prior to and during the pandemic.

    We are also launching a new initiative called Well In, where supporters can make a contribution towards free season tickets for those who are unemployed in our area, as well as low-income families.

    We want to make our club as inclusive as possible and try to remove the financial barrier for those who struggle the most to be part of our club and community.

    We hope you can support us in this and, to help further, the club will match all funds raised to ensure as many free season tickets as possible are given out. So if donations to Well In reach £40,000, the club will distribute £80,000 worth of season tickets.

    We will soon return to Fir Park and your continued support is vital. Not only for the team on the pitch when you are in the stands, but also to allow us to continue our work as a club and a force for good for our local community.

    Please support us by taking up the offer of a free season ticket, or buy a season ticket if you were unable to join us last time. Better still, if there are friends or family members who you can encourage to come along with you, show them the way. We have frozen the prices from last year to encourage as many as possible to join. And, if you are able, please consider making a donation to the Community Trust or to Well In to help others become part of our family.

    We are about so much more than the 90 minutes. We are a community. As we return to some form of normality, we cherish the chance to share great moments with those closest to us.

    We wish you, your family and your friends continued good health. These have been remarkable times. We have shown unity, strength and patience to get to this point. I want nothing more than for us to be back together at Fir Park. See you there.

    Jim McMahon
    Chairman

    Free season tickets for unemployed and low-income families

    Free season tickets for unemployed and low-income families

    The past year has been an exceptionally challenging one for all of us.

    On top of worries about our health and the wellbeing of our loved ones, many have also had to contend with worries about their jobs and, in many cases, facing unemployment.

    Beyond the challenges of Covid-19, our area also faces economic issues in normal times. Our unemployment rate is higher than the Scottish and British average, and many other families and individuals are surviving on low incomes.

    In the 1980s and early 1990s, our town was going through another crisis with high unemployment. Then, the club, the fans and local businesses rallied around to help people receive free tickets for matches. We displayed our community spirit and care for each other, ensuring people remained part of our family and stayed in contact with people, while they tried to get back on their feet.

    Now, we once again want to give something back to those in our area who want to get to the football, and help them share in the community spirit and friendship that being in our stadium brings. We want everyone to feel able to be part of our club, and remove the financial barrier to entry where possible.

    We are launching our Well In scheme, providing free season tickets to the unemployed and low-income families in our area. It is in our DNA to improve people’s lives where we possibly can. Giving people the lifeline of a network and an escape every fortnight at Fir Park could make the world of difference.

    We’re asking supporters who feel financially able to donate towards the scheme this year. All donations of any value are welcome, with 100% of the money going towards the purchase of season tickets.

    In return, the club will match fund all donations to ensure as many season tickets as possible are made available to our community.

    To donate, go to donate.motherwellfc.co.uk and give what you can, or call us on 01698 333333.

    Information on how to benefit from this scheme will be announced shortly.

    Free season tickets for 2020/21 holders

    At the start of the 2020/21 season, we pledged to season ticket holders that they would see – in person – 19 Premiership matches at Fir Park in return for their purchase.

    At that time, we were confident that supporters would be back home at some stage in the campaign, even as early as the autumn.

    Now, as we know, that never happened, and we have played every match behind closed doors.

    Despite that, our commitment remains unchanged. If you bought a season ticket for 2020/21, we will automatically give you a season ticket for 2021/22 for free.

    You do not need to spend any more money. We will honour our pledge and send you a new season card soon.

    We will forever be grateful for your decision to spend money last year when there was no certainty over what would happen next. We are incredibly appreciative, considering many of you will have been going through difficult times, worrying about your health, your family and perhaps even your job. We want to repay your faith by welcoming you back to Fir Park at no extra cost.

    We are also mindful that some of you may need the money back from your season ticket instead, as an alternative to a free season ticket. We are offering refunds on season tickets until the end of May. Just email us at tickets@motherwellfc.co.uk, or call 01698 333333, and we’ll sort it for you right away.

    A lot of fans have also approached us about making further donations to the club. In recognition of that, we are asking you to consider donating to our Community Trust and help us continue the excellent work they’ve done over the last year.

    In addition, we are launching our Well In scheme, inviting you to make a donation towards season tickets for unemployed persons and low-income families in our area. We are thankful to everyone who would consider such a gesture, and it is possible to do so by visiting donate.motherwellfc.co.uk.

    If you didn’t buy a season ticket in 2020/21 but want to now, we’d be delighted to welcome you back for the new campaign. Season tickets are now on sale – just go to tickets.motherwellfc.co.uk to buy. We’ve frozen our prices from last year, and we’re still offering the great incentive of up to two free season tickets for kids.

    At the time of writing, we know that restrictions on large outdoor gatherings will begin to ease on Monday 17 May.

    We are encouraged by the Scottish Government’s decision to allow 25% of Hampden Park to be open for the UEFA Euro 2020 matches in June. We hope to be able to update you all soon on plans for opening the gates here in time for the Premier Sports Cup group stages in July and the start of the Premiership campaign soon after.

    Until then, thank you. Stay safe and look after each other. Soon, we’ll be back home cheering on our team. Hold on to those thoughts of returning to your seat, being reunited with family and friends and seeing your team again. It’s coming.
