    Graham Alexander leaves Motherwell

    Graham Alexander leaves Motherwell

    We have today parted company with manager Graham Alexander by mutual consent.

    Graham will leave the club along with his assistant Chris Lucketti.

    “Graham asked to speak with us early on Friday morning, and everyone agreed that it would be best to make a change,” chairman Jim McMahon said.

    “We asked Graham to reverse our fortunes when he arrived eighteen months ago and he did that, before a really solid start to his first full season at Fir Park laid the foundations for what ultimately led to a fifth place finish and European football.

    “However, things haven’t gone as well for a spell in 2022 and although the timing is not ideal, we hope a change will bring about fresh impetus for everyone ahead of the 2022/23 season.

    “I would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Graham and Chris for all their hard work and effort and wish them every success in their future careers.”

    Graham added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Motherwell and leave with nothing but good wishes for the club in the future.

    “I’m proud that we came in with the club joint bottom of the Premiership, and 18 months later leave having first secured our Premiership status, then qualified for Europe in our first full season. Our points tally in that time is only behind Rangers & Celtic.

    “I also want to thank everyone who has worked so hard alongside us, and for the support I have received from Alan Burrows, Jim McMahon and the board of directors. It has been a pleasure to represent Motherwell Football Club.”

    Kevin Van Veen signs one-year contract extension

    Striker and fan favourite Kevin van Veen has penned a one-year contract extension keeping the Dutchman at Fir Park until the summer of 2024. 

    Van Veen joined Motherwell from Scunthorpe in the summer of 2021 and was our top-goalscorer in his first season at the club, scoring 11 goals.

    “I’m glad we have secured Kevin for another two seasons after a great impact in his first year with us,” manager Graham Alexander said.

    “He has flourished being in a place where he has trust, respect and a team he enjoys playing with. I believe he has even more in the tank and I know how much he wants to help us continue our success from last year.”

    Kian Speirs // Getting a taste of first team football

    When the first team announced that they would be going to Austria for a pre-season camp, young Kian Speirs could only hope that he would to join them.

    A last-minute call meant he had to quickly pack his bags and get to the airport as he would join Graham Alexander and the squad for the week long camp.

    After only training a handful of times with the first team, this was Kian’s first real experience of top level training and it gave him an insight into what it takes to be a full time professional.

    Rounding off his time in Austria, the midfielder would get game time in a bounce game which has left him hungry for more.

    Khym Ramsay departs

    Goalkeeper Khym Ramsay has left the club. 

    The experienced shot-stopper departs Motherwell after making 24 appearances last season.

    Since joining the club in early 2020, Ramsay has been a regular between the sticks for the claret and amber.

    “Khym leaves with our best wishes,” head coach Paul Brownlie said.

    “Due to her life away from football, Khym is unable to commit to training and playing so we mutually made the decision that it would be best for her to take a step back from the team.

    “She is an excellent professional and we wish her well for her future endeavours.”

    The club would like to thank Khym for efforts in her time at Motherwell and wish her well for the future.

    Defeat to Sunderland in friendly

    Defeat to Sunderland in friendly

    Motherwell were beaten 3-1 to Sunderland on Sunday at the Academy of Light. 

    Grace Ede, Abbey Joice and Neve Herron scored for Sunderland while Katie Rice pulled a goal back late in the game.

    After creating a couple chances early in the game, Sunderland opened the scoring on 39 minutes. Joice burst down the wing before playing the ball across to Ede who lashed her effort into the top corner.

    Sunderland doubled their advantage on 50 minutes. Katy Watson picked up the ball before driving into the box. Lifting her head up, she squared it to Joice who finished cooly into the net.

    Herron made it three on 82 minutes but Motherwell continued to fight and got their reward on 85 minutes.

    Katie Rice picked the ball up and after shifting it onto her weaker right foot, had a go from 25-yards and placed her effort into the top corner.

    In the fourth pre-season game, Paul Brownlie once again used his squad fully to ensure more players got minutes ahead of their SWPL1 campaign.
