Stevie Kirk is to join the Motherwell FC Hall of Fame.
He will be inducted at our special event on Saturday 13 November.
A special auction is also running for a host of Motherwell items, with proceeds going to the youth academy. Bid here.
A modern-day Motherwell legend, Stevie Kirk will forever be remembered for scoring the winning goal in the 1991 Scottish Cup Final.
But his association with the Steelmen spanned more than a decade on and off the park.
Signed from East Fife in 1986, he immediately made himself a fixture in Tommy McLean’s side. Adept at finding the net, he scored one of ‘Well’s goals of the decade at Tynecastle in 1987, running the length of the field.
The following season at the same venue, Kirk volunteered to go in goals after an injury to goalkeeper Cammy Duncan. Undaunted by the task, he famously went on to save a penalty and inspired Motherwell to a 2-2 draw having been two-nil down.
But think of Stevie Kirk and it is impossible not to return to that Scottish Cup winning run.
He would have a significant impact at each stage, netting in every round, as Motherwell went on to beat Dundee United in the final.
As a result, he then also had the distinction of scoring Motherwell’s first-ever goal in Europe.
With more than 300 league appearances and his name in Motherwell FC folklore, Kirk now joins the Hall of Fame.
Our Hall of Fame will welcome its new inductees in a special event in November.
Taking place at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel on Saturday 13 November, the event will induct the classes of both 2020 and 2021.
Current Hall of Famers include George Stevenson, Willie Pettigrew, Phil O’Donnell, Ally Maxwell and James McFadden.
The delayed 2020 class, who will also be inducted on the night, includes John Hunter, Andy Paton, Joe Wark, Davie Cooper and Steven Hammell.
