    Don’t overpay on the train to Stranraer

    Don’t overpay on the train to Stranraer

    If you are taking the train to Stranraer on Saturday, make sure you don’t pay more than you need to.

    If you choose Motherwell as your origin station when purchasing, and Stranraer as your destination, you will be charged £47.50 for an adult return.

    Alternatively, you can currently purchase a return ticket online from Motherwell to Glasgow Central, which will cost £4.90, and then separately buy a return from Glasgow Central to Stranraer, which will cost £21.80.

    In total, at the time of writing, you will save £20.80 if you purchase your tickets this way. You will experience no difference in terms of your travel if you purchase at the cheaper cost.

    Scotrail have told us that differences on fares on certain routes is responsible for the higher price. By booking two separate journeys, you can avoid it.

    We need to talk about suicide

    In just a matter of a few months, a number of young people in North Lanarkshire have taken their own lives.

    Last year, 40 people in North Lanarkshire were lost to suicide. Young men in particular are affected, with the suicide rate for males three times more than females.

    Nobody wants to talk about suicide. But we need to change that.

    If you’re reading this and feel low, we want you to know that everybody feels low sometimes. We all face difficult situations in our lives. That applies to everyone, whether they are our friends and family, supporters and even footballers.

    Suicide is not the answer. There is always another way. Help is available. You are not alone. We know it is not always easy to talk but you are contemplating this, please open up to someone.

    Our players, our manager Stephen Robinson and everyone at Motherwell Football Club are determined to play a part in preventing any more lives being lost. Everyone in our community is important to us. We want you to be able to talk and find another way.

    If you’re feeling like this, please pick up the phone. You will not be judged. People can help you see there is another option.

    Call the Samaritans on 116123, Breathing Space on 0800 838587 or Childline on 0800 1111.

    Motherwell Football Club have extended their back-of-shirt partnership with North Lanarkshire Suicide Prevention. The logo will continue to be prominently displayed on shirts and around Fir Park Stadium.

    Club extend Suicide Prevention partnership

    Club extend Suicide Prevention partnership

    Motherwell Football Club are backing efforts to tackle suicide and the dreadful consequences it can have for families and communities.

    In season 2018/19, we will continue to display the the Suicide Prevention North Lanarkshire logo on the back of our first team jerseys. Our reserve team will also follow suit.

    In partnership with North Lanarkshire Council, the club will also be displaying prominent suicide prevention messages and helpline information around Fir Park during matches.

    Almost one person every week dies by suicide in North Lanarkshire. As a club, we pledge to support Suicide Prevention North Lanarkshire to help raise awareness that help is available for those who need it.

    “We work with Motherwell FC on a number of local initiatives and this partnership is vital in helping raise awareness around this sensitive area,” council deputy leader Paul Kelly said.

    “Suicide devastates lives across Scotland every day of every week. It is vital that if people are feeling suicidal or down that they know help is available. We need to let people know it helps to talk if you are feeling worried or concerned.

    “By working together we can have a greater impact in preventing suicide.”

    Lynne MacDonald, senior social work officer with North Lanarkshire Council, added: “This partnership with Motherwell FC means we can use football as a means to reach out to more people to reduce suicide.

    “We want to make people aware that there is lots of help available if they are concerned about suicide or are worried about friends or family members.

    “By raising awareness of how to recognise the signs sometimes associated with suicide, people will be in a better position to offer support and perhaps save lives.”

    Alan Burrows, chief executive at Motherwell FC said: “Suicide has sadly impacted our club and our community on many different levels.

    “Former players, staff and their families and, most recently, friends and supporters have been affected in someway over the years.

    “We’ve always tried to raise awareness. We need to – and will – double our efforts going forward.”

    Suzanne Reid, head of commercial and marketing at Motherwell FC added: “It is important to us as a club, and a central part of this community, to continue our support for this initiative.

    “Suicide affects so many families in this area, and has had a direct impact on young supporters’ families in recent months. We want everyone to know that support is out there, and the first step towards it is to talk to someone.”

    Introducing the new Motherwell FC website

    Introducing the new Motherwell FC website

    Welcome to the new website of Motherwell Football Club.

    After extensive development and consultation with supporters over what they expect from their club website, we’ve worked with Scottish web development agency mtc to bring you our new offering.

    Our previous website and server were not befitting of the strides we have taken as a club both on and off the pitch. Through our conversations with you, the fans, you told us that:

    • Information on the first team was the main reason you visited
    • You wanted more insight into the first team and more content around them
    • Buying tickets online was also important, leading to the launch of our ticketing platform this summer
    • A new, modern website that was fit for purpose in the current digital age was essential
    • A responsive mobile website was critical, with 67% of those surveyed saying they visited the website on their mobile devices

    The new website is based around those fundamental points. The main content you will see every time you visit will be geared around the first team matches and players, with fresh interviews, features, behind-the-scenes content and more on a daily basis, whether that’s in written, video or audio form.

    Club websites can be cluttered. We wanted to strip things down so that you see only what the majority are interested in on first glance. But there are still lots of areas that are vitally important to the club, and we’ve organised these better through our new navigation system, that makes it quicker and easier to find the items you need.

    Our new site will also help us grow the business, with the ability to sell tickets and hospitality, increase opportunities for digital sponsorships and better promote the sale of club merchandise. It is also hosted on a new server which will be able to handle large volumes of traffic.

    “This is an important day for Motherwell FC as we step up our digital offering,” communications manager Grant Russell said.

    “Our supporters have told us exactly what they expect from our website, and we’ve looked to reflect that in what we are launching today.

    “Our previous offering had become not fit for purpose and it was important we took the time to properly investigate and then design a website that would best serve the club and its supporters.

    “We have a lot of innovative features and we’ve spent a lot of time on the user experience, making it as easy as possible to find the information you want as easily as possible. We are also now able to integrate our website with our new ticketing system, meaning it is now possible to buy tickets for matches through our website in just a few clicks.

    “There are a number of features still to follow that will even further enhance our website for our fans that we will announce shortly.”

    Ryan McGinnis, lead designer on the project at mtc, added: “We are delighted to present the new club website after months of collaborative research, design and development between Motherwell & mtc,”

    “Our primary aim was to establish a highly engaging fan experience by placing supporters at the forefront of the digital journey. We have created a system that allows users to effortlessly find key content and can withstand the technical pressures expected of a progressive, traffic-heavy football club.

    “We’re thrilled to welcome the club to our ever growing sports line-up and look forward to growing our digital partnership with Motherwell FC.”
