Graham Alexander has signed a new contract.
The Motherwell manager has put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at Fir Park until at least 2025.
“I’m delighted to sign a new contract here at Motherwell and continue the progress we have all made in the last 12 months,” Alexander said.
“Chris and I have received nothing but great support from everyone connected with the club, which has certainly helped us concentrate on our work.
“I have a brilliant relationship with the people I work with every day, and the environment that we’re allowed to develop here to produce results is particularly rewarding.
“I also want to thank the chairman and the board for showing the faith in us from day one to be a success in this role.
“We know we have much more to achieve here. We will strive to work as hard as ever to serve Motherwell in the best way.”
Appointed on 7 January 2021, the former Scotland international has presided over the transformation of the playing squad.
The team’s Premiership points tally of 59 in the 2021 calendar year was the third-highest in the top flight, with the club also currently occupying fourth spot.
Alexander statistically ranks near the top of the modern-day Motherwell bosses with a win percentage of 47.8% and a league points per game record of 1.55.
He is also the first manager outside of Celtic and Rangers to win three Premiership Manager of the Month awards in a calendar year, with only Neil Lennon (four), Steven Gerrard, Alex McLeish, Brendan Rodgers and Gordon Strachan (three) for company.
“We have been absolutely delighted with Graham’s contribution since joining our club 12 months ago and we are excited about what he is trying to build with us,” Motherwell chairman Jim McMahon added.
“He is talented, hard-working, dedicated and fully buys into the multifaceted role at Motherwell.
“The board will continue to back him to help us achieve our goals both on and off the pitch.”
