    Friendly victory against Glasgow Women

    Friendly victory against Glasgow Women

    Motherwell showed quality in abundance as they recorded a 7-0 victory against Glasgow Women on Wednesday night. 

    Summer signing Brogan Anderson netted four goals, with London Pollard, Kodie Hay and Kaela McDonald-Nguah getting on the scoresheet.

    Motherwell started on the front foot and got the opener on 17 minutes. Georgie Rafferty sent a long ball towards winger Gill Inglis, who controlled and seen her effort rattle of the post but Pollard was on hand to finish.

    It would be 2-0 not long after the 30 minute mark. After a Motherwell attacked seemed to be over, the ball fell to B.Anderson who had a go from 25-yards out and found the back of the net for her first of the night.

    Two minutes later, it was three. Hay cut inside from the left wing and laced a strike into the top corner with the keeper having no chance of reaching it.

    Half time, 3-0 Motherwell.

    Motherwell looked to continue where they left off and B.Anderson had her second of the game moments into the second period.

    Hay again threatening on the left wing had a shot which the Glasgow Women keeper saved but B.Anderson followed in for a comfortable finish.

    B.Anderson got her hat-trick on 53 minutes. A defensive mix up from Glasgow Women and the new signing pounced to finish into the net. 5-0.

    On 58 minutes, it was six. B.Anderson was on hand once again as she found the back of the net after a goalkeeping error.

    McDonald-Nguah got her name on the scoresheet for the second time in three days. Substitute Jemma Hughes retained possession on the edge of the box, laid the ball to the side to McDonald-Nguah who finished emphatically to round off a good nights work for Paul Brownlie’s team.

    Josh Morris signs for Motherwell

    Josh Morris signs for Motherwell

    Motherwell have signed Josh Morris from Salford City.

    The 30-year-old attacker, who operates on either side of a front three or deeper in midfield, has penned a two-year deal with the club.

    “It’s great to have Josh here with us, he’s a player I know very well and he was an integral part of two successful teams I managed,” Graham Alexander said.

    “He has great energy and a work ethic to match, a lovely left foot and real quality in the final third.

    “I believe he’ll complement the type of players we already have here, and I’m sure he will enjoy his time at Motherwell.”

    Morris came through the ranks at Blackburn Rovers, where he broke into the first team in 2010. He went on to make 22 appearances for the Rovers, including six games in the Premier League.

    In his time at Blackburn, he went on loan to Yeovil Town, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town, where he first worked with Graham Alexander.

    Morris departed Blackburn Rovers in 2015 to join Bradford City. He then moved onto Scunthorpe United where he reunited once again with the current Well gaffer. He scored 20 goals in his first season with The Iron and followed that up with 12 the following season in a prolific spell at Glanford Park.

    Morris returned for another spell with Fleetwood Town before joining his most recent club Salford City in 2021.

    His signing is subject to registration formalities. He will wear the number 23 shirt this season.

    Motherwell victory over St Johnstone in friendly

    Motherwell victory over St Johnstone in friendly

    Motherwell continued their preparations for the new SWPL1 season with a comfortable 1-0 victory of St Johnstone on Sunday. 

    Kaela McDonald-Nguah scored the only goal in the game when she converted from the penalty spot after 53 minutes.

    Motherwell controlled the full game and has a cluster of chances over the course of the 90 minutes.

    The first big opportunity came from Kodie Hay after seven minutes. The winger beat two St Johnstone defenders and shot over the bar.

    Hay was unlucky not to break the deadlock just two minutes later. She fired a low driven shot towards goal which came off in the inside of the post before rolling across the goal line but failed to cross it.

    Gill Inglis would go close next when she drove up the wing before pulling a shot narrowly wide on 13 minutes.

    McDonald-Nguah found herself with the ball in box on 21 minutes and she lashed a half volley which came crashing off the crossbar with the keeper well beaten.

    Arguably Motherwell’s best chance of the first half came on 27 minutes. Inglis once again caused the St Johnstone defence problems on the right hand side, she played a ball across to Hay who seen her shot well saved by the Saints keeper from 10 yards out.

    With the deadlock still to be broken, Motherwell continued to pile on the pressure in the second half.

    Summer signing Brogan Anderson done well to keep a hold of the ball and she was fouled in the penalty area on 53 minutes, with the referee pointing straight to the spot.

    2021/22 top goalscorer McDonald-Nguah stepped up and made no mistake as she fired the ball hard and low to the keepers right to give Motherwell the lead.

    Substitute Amy Anderson had a go from 25 yards but her shot was too high and cruised over the bar.

    Motherwell would see out the game and come away with 1-0 victory in what was an excellent run out for the squad.

    Graham Alexander reflects on pre-season camp in Obertraun

    Graham Alexander reflects on the trip to Austria for pre-season.

    He says his side have coped well with how far the coaching staff have pushed them.

    The Motherwell manager reckons this week will help his side cope with mental fatigue that will hit them during the course of the season.

    Alexander was also pleased to see his side come away with a victory in a bounce match at the facility on Friday to round off the week.
