    Paul and Leanne help hit target

    Motherwell Women duo Paul Brownlie and Leanne Crichton have made one of their most important signings – by joining the Well Society, and taking membership past the 3700-mark.

    They join thousands of others contributing to keep Motherwell FC in fans’ hands.

    Head of Women and Girls at Motherwell FC, Paul said: “The Well Society have been supportive of the journey the women’s set up has been on, with recent funding of £10,000. So we’re delighted to give back a little in return.”

    Douglas Dickie, co-chair of the Well Society, said: “Earlier in the year we set a target to get to 3700 members by Hogmanay, so we’ve hit that early. Now we’ll look to get to 4000 people actively supporting the club. Thank you to Paul, Leanne and everyone else who has signed up so far. Your contributions mean we can do so much more, as a fan-owned club, to ensure Motherwell FC thrives.”

    Some of that work has been around ensuring football is a sport for everyone. Alongside the Motherwell FC Community Trust, the Society has organised events and opportunities for those interested in girls and women’s football.

    The Society are continuing to work with Paul and Leanne to raise the profile of the women’s game. They are looking for events and marketing volunteers to help enhance matchdays and promote bigger crowds. Anyone interested should get in touch or call 01698 338009.

    As well as receiving a welcome pack and other benefits, Society members have the opportunity to help shape the future of the club and get involved. Why not join today?

    Kit Watch

    We will be wearing our home kit for this match.

    Injury update

    Pape Souare will remain sidelined for this match.

    Lennon Miller and Paul McGinn will also be missing.

    Motherwell Fortunes

    Prior to the November internationals, Motherwell suffered a narrow 2-1 lose at home to Hearts.

    The result meant the Steelmen hadn’t won a game in nine matches.

    It was a keenly contested match the last time the two sides met. With game still deadlocked after 87 minutes, Celtic found the back of the net before Blair Spittal levelled with seemingly the last kick of the ball. Matt O’Riley would go up the other end to find the winner.

    Opposition Report

    Celtic are eight points clear at the top of the table, with Brendan Rodgers hitting the ground running in his second spell in charge.

    Yet to taste defeat in the cinch Premiership this campaign, they have conceded only seven goals.

    A familiar face to Motherwell, academy graduate David Turnbull is back to his near best this season. He has six goals to his name in all competitions having only started seven matches in total.

    Summer signing Luis Palma has also adjusted to life in Scotland quickly, the winger has five goals and five assists in just 12 appearances.

    November international review

    November international review

    We had three players away on international duty this month. 

    Bevis Mugabi

    With Uganda kicking off their journey to the 2026 World Cup, the Cranes took on Guinea in their first qualifying match in Morocco.

    Mugabi played the full 90 minutes however, Uganda conceded in the latter stages of the match and lost 2-1.

    In their second outing against Somalia, Uganda picked up their first points in their group with a 1-0 win. Mugabi played the full 90 minutes at the heart of the backline.

    Brodie Spencer

    As Northern Ireland drew their EURO 2024 qualifying to a close, they travelled to Finland in their first match, with Spencer named amongst the substitutes.

    The full-back played 13 minutes off the bench in the second half, however a classy second-half performance from the hosts seem them come away with a 4-0 victory.

    The fixtures didn’t get any easier for the Northern Irish as they faced Denmark in Belfast in their second match. Spencer was named on the bench again and was an unused substitute but this time, Northern Ireland put in an impressive performance and came away with a 2-0 win.

    Liam Kelly

    Although already qualified, Liam Kelly and Scotland wanted to finish their group on a high.

    Scotland drew both their games. A 2-2 draw against Georgia came before a thrilling 3-3 draw at Hampden against Norway which seen Scotland finish second in the standings.

    Liam Kelly was an unused substitute for both matches.

    November loan update

    November loan update

    We have ten players who are out on loan, who all have been in action of late.

    Ricki Lamie

    Ricki Lamie has now made eight appearances for the Dee. A strong month of results has seen them climb to fifth in the standings.

    He’s started five of the last six matches for Tony Docherty, and was an unused substitute against Livingston.

    In those five starts, he’s been at the heart of the defence that has managed to keep four clean sheets.

    Nathan McGinley

    Nathan McGinley has missed the last five matches at Partick Thistle.

    Ewan Wilson

    Since our last update, Ewan Wilson has made two starts and one appearance from the bench. It’s been a tricky run of form for Stirling as they haven’t won in the last five games.

    Despite this, in the congested league 1 table, Stirling are seventh in the table but will have one eye on a playoff spot that is only seven points away.

    Sam Campbell

    With ten appearances already to his name at Annan Athletic, Sam Campbell is continuing his development.

    He’s made one appearance in the last four, as a second-half substitute against Edinburgh City.

    Annan were on a difficult run of results, however have seen improvement recently as they drew their last two games.

    Robbie Garcia

    Cowdenbeath have three draws and two losses to their name in the last five, with Robbie Garcia not featuring in any for the blue brazil.

    Barry Maguire

    Barry Maguire is already closing in on 20 appearances for Kidderminster Harriers and has played close to 900 minutes of National League football in his time down south.

    Despite currently sitting bottom of the National League standings, Maguire has been a regular feature for the Harriers.

    They haven’t won in their last five matches.

    Ross Tierney

    Ross Tierney has started eight matches since our last update.

    He’s scored once and assisted once in that time. Tierney scored in an FA Cup tie that was live on ITV against Sheppey United.

    It’s now 16 appearances for Walsall in all competitions for Tierney with The Saddlers sitting in 17th place in League Two.

    Adam MacDonald

    Adam MacDonald has started three of the last six matches, and has been a substitute in two for Cowdenbeath.

    The Blue Brazil are sitting in the middle of the pack in the Lowland League.

    Robbie Mahon

    Michael McIndoe took the reigns of Edinburgh City last month and has seen an improvement in form.

    Mahon has started the last five matches and has put in some of man of the match performances. The winger has notched two assist in that time and bagged himself three goals, including a double against Alloa in their last outing.

    City have closed the gap to ninth placed Annan as they look to get themselves off the bottom of the table.

    Mark Ferrie

    Ferrie has made three substitute appearances since our last update for Stenhousemuir. He picked up a head knock against Spartans and was left out of their last two games for precautionary reasons.

    Stenny are flying high at the top of the tree in League Two, as they bid for a promotion push this season.

    Montrose 1-1 Motherwell

    Montrose 1-1 Motherwell

    Misfortunes on the road persisted in the North-East coast, as Motherwell failed to capitalise on their dominance in possession and countless goalscoring opportunities, with Montrose netting a late equaliser to deny the women of steel their first away victory of the 2023/24 campaign at Links Park on Sunday.

    Chelsie Watson netted her first goal of the campaign, pouncing on a dangerous Kayla Jardine corner late into the second half, as Motherwell looked certain to finally earn their rewards from performances in recent weeks, but a late Louise Anna Brown penalty kick restored a point for the hosts.

    Head Coach, Paul Brownlie made two changes from the side that suffered a harsh defeat to Aberdeen prior to the international break, with Katie Rice and Laura McCartney returning to the starting XI, as Tara McGonigle and Sarah Gibb settled for a place on the bench.

    Seeking to redeem themselves following their Sky Sports Cup exit at Links Park in October, Motherwell started firmly on the front foot and almost netted the opener within the opening exchanges.

    Amy Anderson’s chipped through ball fell kindly to the feet of Bailley Collins who fired a low effort to the left of Montrose stopper Lauren Perry, who reacted well to deny the forward before gathering the follow-up effort from Jardine.

    Motherwell continued to flood the hosts penalty area, with Laura McCartney’s drilled delivery flashing across the face of goal, but Carla Boyce’s resulting finish narrowly evaded the near post.

    The women of steel’s composure in the final third failed to materialise, as the half drew to a close, with countless efforts evading the Montrose goal.

    As the second half resumed, Jardine almost broke the deadlock after latching onto Watson’s floated delivery, firing a precise volley towards the bottom-right corner, but Perry again reacted well to produce a smart stop.

    Motherwell’s frustrations in-front of goal seemed destined to persist as the full-time whistle neared, but with 10-minutes remaining, the visitors finally found the breakthrough.

    Jardine’s floated delivery from the left sailed invitingly into the path of Watson deep into the Montrose penalty area, and the towering defender powered home a precise header for her first goal of the campaign and establishing the slimmest of margins to defend in the final few minutes.

    However, Motherwell’s disappointment and frustrations on the road were compounded, as Montrose secured a penalty in stoppage time, as Charlotte Gammie fell theatrically under the challenge of Collins. Brown stepped up, and despite Emily Mutch guessing the correct way, the strikers low effort narrowly creeped into the bottom-right corner.

    Motherwell will return home next weekend, as Partick Thistle travel to East Kilbride in what will be a vital encounter for the women of steel, as they seek to turn around their recent run of form.

    Lennon Miller // Signing the dotted line

    Despite the recent news that Lennon Miller had sustained his first major injury in professional football, the 17-year-old signed a one-year extension at Motherwell, keeping him in ML1 until 2026. 

    With a face-to-face conversation with manager Stuart Kettlewell’s office, we see Lennon Miller open up about dealing with the injury setback and he tells us his reasons why, despite a heap of interest elsewhere, he wanted to stay at Motherwell.

    He may only be 17, but his football IQ and mental maturity are way beyond his years as he reflects on what has been his breakthrough season in first-team football and looks ahead to his mini milestones he wishes to achieve as he begin his road to recovery from a broken patella.

    Lennon Miller signs one-year extension

    Lennon Miller signs one-year extension

    Lennon Miller has put to pen to paper on a one-year contract extension. 

    The 17-year-old has committed his future at the club until the summer of 2026.

    Despite suffering a broken patella in November, the midfielder has made 14 appearances in all competitions in his breakthrough season.

    Miller has already made 19 appearances for the club, scoring two goals in the process.

    “This contract extension tees Lennon up for that next chapter of his career,” manager Stuart Kettlewell said.

    “He’s already ticked off a few important milestones in his young career but for him to know his future is here, gives him good security going forward.

    “It’s very easy for players to get 13 starts at young ages in the modern game and to think the next chapter could be something different.

    “It’s important he’s in a place to develop and I believe he’s an example to young modern players to not get too eager for the next opportunity. It comes naturally when you do good things.

    “It’s a proper feel good factor for the football club as a whole and I look forward to seeing Lennon back on the pitch.”

    Lennon suffered a broken patella against Aberdeen at the start of the month, which has ruled him out for a minimum of three months.

    “My injury was a disappointment but to get my contract extended has given me a lift,” Lennon Miller added.

    “I always wanted to stay at Motherwell and negotiations have been straightforward from my side of things.

    “This club has given so many opportunities and to be rewarded with this, is something I’m grateful for.

    “Now my focus is on achieving a full recovery and earning my spot back in the team.”
