    Robinson and Lasley sign new contracts

    Stephen Robinson and Keith Lasley have agreed new contracts with Motherwell Football Club.

    The management team have signed until 2022, adding two years to their respective deals, which were due to expire at the conclusion of the 2019/20 season.

    Under their guidance, the club has reached both the Scottish and Betfred Cup finals, as well as narrowly missing out on the top-six in each of the last two seasons.

    The club has also generated significant revenue in player sales through players developed through their coaching, as well as progressing a significant number of players from the youth academy to regular first team football.

    “The board is delighted both Stephen and Keith have extended their contracts at the club,” Motherwell FC chairman Jim McMahon said.

    “We set clear targets for the management of our football club. Firstly, we ask them to put out a competitive team on the park every weekend.

    “We also ask that the to recruit and improve players, and marry that with developing and progressing our own young talent from the academy into the first team.

    “Effective player trading is also a big part of any football club. But for our fan-owned and fan-funded club, it is vital.

    “Both of them have pushed tirelessly to achieve those goals and we are delighted with what they have accomplished so far.

    “They have created a true culture at our club of hard work and continual improvement, an ethic that is evident in everyone they come into contact with.

    “We are excited to work closely with them as they continue their efforts for the betterment of Motherwell Football Club going forward.”

    Since his appointment in March 2017, Robinson has taken charge of over 100 games as Motherwell boss. He was joined in the dugout by Lasley in the summer of 2017, with the former ‘Well player retiring after 481 matches as a player.

    In the 2018/19 season, 8,181 minutes were given to players aged under 21 produced by the club’s academy, more than any other club in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    “I’m delighted to have committed my future to the club,” said Robinson.

    “The club have been very good with me and we all feel we can keep pushing the club forward.

    “We work within certain parameters, but we feel we have had relative success in achieving our goals. I’m delighted to be staying.”

    Assistant manager Lasley added: “I’m obviously very happy to be continuing with the club. I’ve had a long association with Motherwell and I’m delighted to be able to continue working here.

    “I’ve learned a lot with the manager as I continue my development as a coach, and I’m grateful for the opportunity.”

    David Turnbull to stay at Motherwell

    David Turnbull to stay at Motherwell

    David Turnbull is to remain a Motherwell player, with a proposed move to Celtic FC no longer taking place.

    An agreement was reached with the Glasgow club on 12 June, subject to the player agreeing personal terms, which he did, and undergoing a medical.

    During that medical process, an issue was identified that will require David to have immediate preventative surgery and subsequent rehabilitation.

    Celtic were still keen to sign the player despite this matter arising. But having presented revised transfer terms to Motherwell, the clubs could not reach an agreement.

    David will now remain at Fir Park and will shortly have an operation which will rule him out of any football for an extended period, the exact length to be determined following surgery.

    We will give David all the support he needs during this process. We wish him the best with his procedure and rehabilitation, and look forward to watching him play in claret and amber again in the near future.

    March against prostate cancer with Jeff Stelling

    March against prostate cancer with Jeff Stelling

    Jeff Stelling is coming to Fir Park as part of another epic walking challenge for Prostate Cancer UK.

    The Sky Sports presenter and marathon man has already completed 25 walking marathons for the men’s health charity, and will now span another four countries in four days in September 2019.

    The Scottish leg of his tour kicks off at Hampden Park on 5 September, making his way to numerous stadiums across Glasgow and Lanarkshire before ending in ML1.

    If you want to raise money for the charity, you can join him on the walk by signing up at marchformen.org. What’s more, you can use the code MOTHERWELL10 to get 10% off the £30 entry fee.

    Having raised close to £800,000 across 2016 and 2017, he’s aiming to march through the £1m fundraising barrier as he travels here, before heading on to Belfast, Cardiff and London.

    Over 26,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer in Scotland, emphasising the need to raise awareness and funds.

    “It’s three years since I started this life-saving journey at the gates of my club, Hartlepool United, but there is still so much work to do,” said Jeff.

    “Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with one man dying every 45 minutes from this disease. That’s unacceptable, and that’s why I’m walking again.

    “It’s an indiscriminate disease, affecting men and their loved ones across the UK. I’ve walked alongside many of them and am proud to call some friends. Their reaction and positive outlook despite being dealt the toughest of hands is simply unbelievable. I’m marching for them – and everyone affected – in a bid to fund the research to change the game.”

    Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson wears the Prostate Cancer UK pin badge in support the charity at every game.

    “It’s going to be great to welcome Jeff and the walkers to Fir Park in September,” said the ‘Well manager,

    “I’m sure there will be some tired legs arriving as Motherwell is the final stop, but every walker can be proud of the terrific efforts they’ll have made for Prostate Cancer UK.”

    Fee agreed with Celtic for David Turnbull

    Fee agreed with Celtic for David Turnbull

    Motherwell Football Club has reached an agreement with Celtic FC for the potential transfer of David Turnbull.

    The academy graduate has been given permission to speak to the club. Should the deal go through, the value of the transfer will vastly exceed our previous record fee received.

    We have rejected several seven-figure offers for David in recent weeks, with clubs the length and breadth of the UK speaking to us about him. It is clear from that the fee we stand to receive fully maximises his potential value.

    We have continued to stand by what we believe is a fair value for David. In light of the negotiating stance we have adopted, the money we stand to receive will be transformational for us as we continue to operate as a fan-owned club.

    Motherwell FC will make no further comment at this time.
