    Defeat against Glasgow City in friendly

    Motherwell got important minutes ahead of the upcoming season against SWPL1 champions Glasgow City.

    A double from Lauren Davidson and Priscila Chincilla and further finishes from Clare Shine and Taylor Fisher gave City the victory in the match.

    It was Motherwell who started the better in the first half, with Holly Napier picking up the ball before firing a strike on target.

    However, just after 10 minutes on the clock, Glasgow City broke the deadlock. Shine drove through on goal before finishing past Ramsey in the Motherwell net.

    Glasgow City doubled their advantage two minutes later when Davidson picked up the ball after a slack pass in the Motherwell midfield before neatly placing the ball in the corner.

    The champions made it 3-0 on the stroke of half time, Davidson unmarked at the back post blasted the ball into the net to get her brace.

    City added to their advantage at the start of the second half. A long ball forward found Chinchilla, Ramsey came rushing out and made the tackle but the ball took an awkward bounce into her net.

    Chinchilla grabbed a brace straight after as she rounded the goalkeeper.

    Glasgow City made it six when Fisher finished from close range, and she also added her second sooner after.

    Motherwell continue their pre-season when they face Kilmarnock on Wednesday night.

    Motherwell 2-0 Annan Athletic

    Motherwell secured progression to the last 16 of the Premier Sports Cup with victory over Annan Athletic.

    A debut goal from Justin Amaluzor and a strike early in the second half from Barry Maguire secured a 2-0 win.

    Liam Kelly’s penalty save late on also proved invaluable to stop the League Two side from getting a foot back in the match.

    Motherwell controlled the bulk of the game, but took time to grow into the game and carve out chances.

    Kevin van Veen had a host of first-half opportunities, seeing two well saved by Greg Fleming.

    At the other end, a low ball across the face of goal presented a golden opportunity, but ‘Well were relieved to see it go right through untouched.

    Then the breakthrough came with six minutes left in the half.

    Carroll got down the left and fed Woolery, who turned and flashed the ball across the face.

    The ball was behind Van Veen but he did enough to ensure it ended up in the path of Amaluzor, who stayed cool to fire in a goal on his debut.

    Better would come for Motherwell early in the second half.

    Van Veen was again at the heart of things, receiving the ball on the left of the six-yard box.

    He steered the ball backwards into the path of the onrushing Maguire, who took the chance to fire low and hard into the net.

    Callum Slattery made his home debut as time wore down but the game wasn’t done there.

    Carroll was adjuged to pull down his man in the box, giving Annan a route back into the game from the spot.

    Moxon stepped up but Kelly acrobatically guessed correctly to turn the penalty away.
