    Theo Bair is your December player of the month

    Theo Bair is your G4 Claims player of the month for December.

    In a month made up of six games, Theo Bair first major impact of December came against St Johnstone at Fir Park. Subbed on with only 10 minutes to go and his team a goal behind, Bair picked up the ball before a pinpoint cross found Mika Biereth to smash home and equalise right at the end of the match.

    Late substitute appearances came against St Mirren and Rangers before he was named in the starting lineup for our match against Livingston. Labelled at 12 pointer pre-match, Bair setup Blair Spittal for the opener before scoring two goals himself, all in the first half.

    A terrific run and chip over the keeper helped restore our two goal lead and eventually won us the match.

    WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN THIS FOOTBALL CLUB

    WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN THIS FOOTBALL CLUB

    Based in North Lanarkshire, between Glasgow and Edinburgh in Scotland, Motherwell Football Club was first established in 1886 and currently play in the top flight of Scottish Football.

    Winning the league, the Scottish Cup, playing in two domestic cup finals in one season, representing on the European Stage in the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League in recent campaigns.

    Motherwell is a community club and that means assisting our fans, the local residents, our staff and our players wherever we can. From raising suicide awareness campaigns due to suicide rate in young males in our local area and fanbase, to giving away free season tickets to low income families, this football club is a pillar of our community.

    But what makes this club so unique?

    In 2016, we became the first fan owned club in Britain. Our supporters pay into the Well Society and with that, they are part of the process in which decisions are made around the club.

    We’ve proved fan ownership is possible. Together with members we’ve enjoyed a period of relative success. We’re still learning. But we’re ambitious. We can go even further.

    If you feel like you want invest in Motherwell Football Club or join the Well Society as we continue to forge a future together, then get in touch. We’d love to hear from you. More details can be found here.

    Chairman’s notes on advertisement video

    A note from our Chairman, Jim McMahon, following the release of our advertisement campaign.
    We have launched a campaign to attract new investment to support the work our club does both on and off the pitch.
    The campaign features a tongue in cheek 90-second film, which riffs on the growing trend of US celebs owning UK football teams.

    We’re proudly a fan owned club but we are always looking for ways to do more and achieve bigger things. This is a slightly, out of the box approach, but with it, we hope we can increase Well Society memberships or find businesses or individuals whose values align with ours.

    Most football clubs operate at a loss and are only viable through significant annual subsidies from their owners.

    There’s a lot of talk of famous investors from the US right now. So we thought it’d be fun to put our own spin on the theme,
    to show what we’re all about at Motherwell Football Club.

    Hopefully you can see that we’re a club that goes beyond just the 90 minutes. With things like walking football and mental health support, we’ve always helped the local community to make sure the positive effects of football can be felt off the pitch too.

    We welcome anyone who wants to support a proper community club. Whether that be new additions to the Well Society or new sponsors. And if anyone from Hollywood wants to get involved then we’re all ears.

    Thanks for your support.
    Jim McMahon
    Chairman

    Partick Thistle 4-2 Motherwell

    Partick Thistle 4-2 Motherwell

    There were no fireworks on display for the women of steel to celebrate their first competitive match of 2024, as an exceptional first-half display was quickly undermined by three-quickfire second-half goals, leaving Motherwell to reflect on their swift Scottish Cup campaign at a frozen Petershill Park on Sunday.

    Summer acquisition Morgan Cross secured successive penalty kicks on her first competitive start in claret and amber, netting one with Bailley Collins dispatching the second. Emma Lawton narrowed the deficit in the first-half, with a Demi Falconer double and a strike from Rachel Donaldson securing the hosts place in the next round of the Scottish Cup.

    Head Coach, Paul Brownlie made two changes from the victory over Dundee Unite prior to the festive break, with Katie Rice and Morgan Cross both featuring in the starting XI, as Eve Donald merited a place on the bench following a lengthy injury spell.

    With the intense pre-match fog clearing and the pitch still blanketed in frost, Motherwell started the contest firmly on the front-foot, with the hosts trading possession deep into their own half.

    Motherwell skipper Gill Inglis worked her way into the Thistle penalty area, before curling a close-range effort from the left, forcing Megan Cunningham into a routine stop in the Thistle goal.

    The breakthrough materialised soon after, with Katie Rice’s clever change of direction providing an opening for Cross to breakthrough into the box before being tripped a yard into the penalty area, leaving the referee no alternative but to award the spot kick. The Dunfermline-born striker stepped up and coolly placed her effort into the bottom-right corner.

    Less than two-minutes later, the hosts levelled the tie, with Emma Lawton firing a low effort into the bottom-right corner.

    The visitors persevered and had their second spot kick moments later. A hopeful long ball left Cross racing through on goal, beating Cunningham to the ball before being hauled down under a forceful challenge. Receiving treatment off of the pitch, penalty duties turned to Bailley Collins, with the youngster calmly restoring Motherwell’s advantage with a well-placed effort.

    As the second-half resumed, Motherwell’s competitive first-half display was soon eroded, as Thistle netted from three successive set-pieces. Amy Bulloch’s whipped free-kick from the left floated invitingly towards the back post, with Falconer powering home a header low into the bottom-left corner.

    Frustrated by what appeared to be an offside player interfering with play, Motherwell appealed to the referee profusely to overturn his decision, but the goal stood. Moments after the restart, Donaldson headed home from a pinpoint corner kick to compound the women of steel’s second-half frustrations.

    Falconer netted a decisive fourth late into the second half to secure her sides place in the next round of the Scottish Cup, leaving Motherwell to reflect on a chaotic second-half that failed to reflect their comfortable first-half performance.
