    Putting a pin in it

    Putting a pin in it

    When looking back on 2020, many of us will reflect on the ways in which we passed the time during difficult circumstances.

    Whether it has been turning our hands to DIY, testing ourselves in a Zoom quiz against friends and family or lacing up our trainers with the aim of taking on a 5K – keeping busy has been the name of the game.

    Others have demonstrated their creative side and after being furloughed from work back in May, ‘Well fan Pete Smith put his artistic skills into action and launched ‘Steelmen Pins’ – a collection of pin badges celebrating Fir Park heroes both past and present.

    It is an idea that has quickly captured the imagination of Motherwell fans young and old – with many turning into obsessive collectors in a relatively short period of time.

    “After being placed on furlough I started some sketches on my iPad and showed them to a couple of my friends,” Pete explained.

    “To be honest I wasn’t overly aware of the growing trend of badge collecting when I started on some ideas for Motherwell based designs.

    “Louis Moult was the first player I used for a design and I then tried one for Michael Higdon, my friends advised to check out the work by badge makers at Celtic and Kilmarnock which helped show me how good they can turn out and how excited people get about collecting.

    “It’s sort of like the Panini stickers with your got, got, needs – everyone wants to complete their collection. I wanted to keep the numbers low at the start, but at the same time keep everyone happy too.

    “So far the badges have gone down really well with the Motherwell fans. It can be tricky trying to gauge quantities sometimes as I certainly don’t want any of those who bought from day one missing out.”

    With a new badge release on the last Friday of every month, fans of Steelmen Pins have learned they have to be quick off the mark to ensure they can add to their collection.

    Last week, a batch of 125 Louis Moult badges were snapped up in less than two hours, leading Pete having to request a further batch in order to cater for demand.

    Commemorating Louis’ wonderful second goal from the 2-0 Betfred Cup semi-final victory over Rangers, the man himself got in touch to give the badge design his seal of approval.

    Pete admits he feels humbled by the reaction from the players featured in the badges, as well as from supporters of the Steelmen and has enjoyed seeing the ways in which they display their collections.

    However, he feels there is still one thing missing – seeing fans display his badges inside Fir Park.

    “It’s so rewarding seeing that heroes of mine and so many ‘Well fans for that matter, are delighted to see themselves being made into enamel,” he added. “When the time comes that we’re back inside Fir Park it would be crazy to see fans with my badges on their scarves – I’d love that.

    “I would say a cork board is a good way to display your badges, though I’d recommend keeping the backers on.

    “I’ve seen it mentioned that Steelmen Pins has helped spark memories of watching our greatest players and it has been brilliant getting to speak to some of those who have bought a badges and hear their stories on their favourite moments watching that particular player. It’s fantastic that a small pin can spark such memories into life.”

    Another major positive for Pete has been the opportunity to contribute to the club through sales of his pin badges – with £1 from each sale being donated to the Well Society.

    Steelmen Pins has also recently supported ‘Cardiac Risk in the Young’ charity through sales of a special Phil O’Donnell charity double pack and will be supporting the Community Trust’s backing of Clyde One’s ‘Cash for Kids’ over the festive period.

    “Motherwell are a positive community club, and it goes without saying that Motherwell fans are incredibly generous,” Smith explained. “I think it’s important that we give back to the club when possible, especially given we can’t get to Fir Park at this moment in time.

    “’I’ve been going to the football with my dad since I was five, but never had much more of a contribution to the cause. Steelmen Pins has been a great thing to be involved and I hope the craze continues.

    “The Phil O’Donnell pins are the badges that I’m really trying to push just now. I had an extra allocation of those ones made up to help raise as much money for the two charities as possible.

    “I think the pin recreating a young Phil celebrating winning the Scottish Cup is my favourite one yet.”

    Having reacted positively to the final designs of 2020, fans of Steelmen Pins are already anticipating what comes next and Pete already has set the wheels in motion for what he hopes will be another big year.

    When it comes to making requests for their favourites to be made into enamel, the ‘Well supporters have made their feelings known and there is one name that is proving to be extremely popular.

    “Tommy Coyne is definitely one of the most requested players and I can’t wait to release his badge,” he smiled. “I’d love to complete the set of the full squad from the 1991 Scottish Cup final too. If I could get to that point it would be great.

    “We are lucky as ‘Well fans to have had so many cult heroes and brilliant players. I have had requests from players from our league winning team in 1932, right up to members of our current squad such as Allan Campbell. There’s so much choice and I’m delighted that people have generally agreed with the players featured so far.

    “It’s good to hear requests from those buying the badges and I’ll see what I can do to squeeze them in without over saturating obviously.

    “I’m really enjoying doing Steelmen Pins and hopefully that can continue into next year. I think a few badges would make the perfect stocking filler and it would be great for the ‘Well fans to wake up to them on Christmas morning.”

    It is not just Steelmen Pins that are proving to be a must-have this Christmas. The ‘Well shop have a massive selection of Motherwell merchandise, guaranteed to bring a smile to a smile to any fan of the Steelmen this Christmas.

    We’re supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign

    Rainbow Laces has always campaigned to make sport everyone’s game.

    They’ve focused on inspiring, educating and encouraging allyship to support LGBT inclusion in sport.

    The events of 2020 have highlighted long-standing inequalities across society. We’ve seen the disproportionate impacts of the pandemic on marginalised groups and the results of structural racism throughout society, including in LGBT communities and across sport.

    The events of this year have also shown us how much community and allyship matter. We’ve seen the role that sport and fitness play in bringing us together, and so many LGBT people and allies have been doing amazing work to make sport everyone’s game.

    To show our support again this year, we will proudly wear the rainbow armband during our game with Hibernian on 5 December 2020.

    We’re putting Christmas lights up in Motherwell and Wishaw

    We’re putting Christmas lights up in Motherwell and Wishaw

    There will be Christmas lights in Motherwell and Wishaw in 2020.

    We will make sure that the communities nearest to our home will enjoy a semblance of normality this December, after North Lanarkshire Council had to make the difficult decision to remove festive lighting due to budget constraints.

    Motherwell Football Club, together with our partners Phoenix Specialist Solutions, have agreed with the council that we can start putting lights up on the main streets of both towns this weekend and next.

    “When we heard that our area would have to go without Christmas lights this year, we wanted to see if we could help,” Motherwell chairman Jim McMahon said.

    “North Lanarkshire Council had indicated they would work with community groups to find solutions where possible and, after discussions, we are grateful they have provided us with the lights so we can put them up around the two towns.

    “During these challenging and unusual times, we hope that seeing the lights can bring community spirit and a sense of normality to people in our local area.”

    David Clark, managing director of Phoenix Specialist Solutions, added: “When Motherwell FC explained the situation to us, we were determined to step in and help.

    “Using our expertise in street lighting, we were able to provide a quick solution that makes sure the people of Motherwell and Wishaw can enjoy seeing some of the Christmas lights up.”

    When the Spurs got sent marching home

    When the Spurs got sent marching home

    The last eight of the 1970/71 Texaco Cup saw Bill Nicholson’s Tottenham Hotspur head to Fir Park with a 3-2 advantage from the first leg of the quarter-final tie.

    The Spurs side featured a host of England internationalists, including Martin Peters who had sampled World Cup glory four years prior.

    Despite their excellent pedigree, they would be swept aside by a stunning display of attacking flair by Bobby Howitt’s sublime Steelmen.

    Spurs had already recorded convincing victories over Scottish opposition in the Texaco Cup having defeated Hearts 4-0 and Dunfermline 3-0.

    In domestic competition, Spurs were also demonstrating their class and visited North Lanarkshire on the back of an eight-game undefeated run in the English First Division. It meant the North Londoners came marching into North Lanarkshire as firm favourites to build on their advantage and reach the semi-final.

    Despite the daunting task ahead of them, there was an air of confidence from those inside Fir Park that the ‘Well could spring a surprise.

    In the previous round they overcame Stoke City, with World Cup-winning keeper Gordon Banks in goal, on penalties but suffered a 5-0 home thrashing at the hands of Celtic just four days before taking on Tottenham.

    That evening’s match programme – the first-ever ‘Fir Park News’ to carry colour – featured positive messages from Howitt, who stated his belief that there would be ‘no inferiority complex’. Skipper Jackie McInally added his captain’s notes titled ‘Yes we can win this tie’ and Sunday Mail columnist Don Morrison predicted a proud night for Scottish football.

    Howitt went on to explain that the game had not just captured the attention of everyone in Lanarkshire, but everyone in Scotland. With the 22,688 crowd creating a raucous atmosphere – under the lights at Fir Park – the scene was set for a classic.

    Included in Howitt’s starting side was right-sided defender Davie Whiteford, who alongside the legendary Joe Wark occupying the left-back position, combined their excellent defensive capabilities with an attacking flair.

    It is an evening that Whiteford still recalls with great fondness, as well as the excitement of both players and supporters alike ahead of a meeting with one of the most accomplished sides in club football.

    “People were coming from everywhere,” Whiteford said. “I can’t recall the exact figure, but there must have been around 25,000 people inside Fir Park that night.

    “I think there were quite a few people inside the stadium who shouldn’t have been there. They got in by hook or by crook. It was one of the best atmospheres I can remember inside Fir Park. It was terrific.

    “Don’t forget we went down there and lost 3-2, with Spurs scoring the winner late on. We felt like we could turn the tie around and that we were just as good as Tottenham.

    “Pat Jennings was their keeper in the first leg, though Jimmy Hancock played in the game up here.

    “They had so many brilliant players such as Martin Peters, Martin Chivers, Alan Gilzean, Alan Mullery and Phil Beal. The list seemed endless.”

    Lifelong ‘Well fan Graham Barnstaple was one of the lucky punters to cram inside the stadium to see his beloved team achieve a legendary triumph.

    Having missed the penalty shootout success over Stoke City in the last 16, Graham was desperate to avoid the disappointment of being denied the opportunity to see his team take on English opposition on home soil. However, he would need to call in a few favours to do so – including from his school headmaster.

    “My family had moved to Prestwick in Ayrshire, and with my dad now working in Glasgow it seemed impossible I could get to Motherwell to see the game,” he recalls. “After weeks of persistent nagging of my parents about finding a way to get me there, a plan was finally hatched.

    “My gran suggested to my mum that she would come down, take me to Motherwell on the bus and meet my dad ahead of the game.

    “The only thing was at that time the bus took about two hours to get from Prestwick to Motherwell. That meant I would need to get away from school early.

    “Thankfully, our headmaster was a football man. He knew my passion for the ‘Well mainly down to me wearing my ‘Well strip at every football practice and therefore agreed I could leave school early for the bus journey to Fir Park for the big game.”

    Hopes of a memorable evening for the Steelmen were dampened in the early exchanges of the clash at Fir Park when Jimmy Pearce headed home Martin Chivers’ long throw to break the deadlock and extend Spurs’ aggregate advantage to 4-2.

    Despite looking on the brink of exiting the competition to their star-studded opponents, Motherwell had other ideas. And the home crowd erupted six minutes before the break when Dixie Deans found Brian Heron, who raced through on goal before driving the ball beyond Jimmy Hancock in the away goal.

    Hancock replaced the acclaimed Northern Irish keeper Jennings between the sticks for the second leg to make one of only three appearances for Spurs.

    Jennings had conceded twice in the first fixture between the sides, and his understudy would be unable to thwart the ruthless ‘Well attack in the second half.

    With 15 minutes remaining, Tom Donnelly fired Motherwell ahead with a long-range drive that nestled in the net via the post to level the scores on aggregate.

    Fir Park was rocking, and the near 23,000 crowd would be celebrating again when the Steelmen captain Bobby Watson steered home to clinch victory and book a place in the last four.

    “The people that were there will remember it forever,” beamed Whiteford. “We really had great footballers. We took on the same attitude as the Ancell Babes. We had the ability and the belief that we could play good football and get results.

    “It’s incredible to think that 50 years have passed since that night and unfortunately we’ve not got everyone here with us to mark the anniversary.

    “The likes of Joe Wark and Tam Forsyth have sadly passed away, and it’s sad to consider that some of the guys who played in that terrific football match are no longer with us.”

    Graham recalls a similarly exhilarating occasion. A day that began with leaving school early and a long bus journey accompanied by his gran, who would have to endure detailed analysis of what might happen at Fir Park later that night, had ended in the euphoria of witnessing one of the most famous victories in the club’s history.

    “I still remember how quickly the journey in my dad’s car back to Prestwick flew by,” he added. “I was on such a high having seen my team overcome an English giant with six full internationals in their side.

    “It’s an evening that I’ll never forget, and I’m so thankful that I was one of the supporters inside the ground for what was a historic victory.”

    The first Texaco Cup was set up for teams that had not qualified for European competition from England, Ireland and Scotland. It featured the likes of Nottingham Forrest, Wolves, West Brom and Shamrock Rovers, as well as Airdrie, Dundee, Dunfermline, Hearts and Morton from north of the border.

    It was one of the first club competitions to receive sponsorship, with American petroleum company Texaco ploughing in £100,000 – ensuring it was lucrative not only for the teams taking part, but also the players.

    “I think the Texaco Cup captured the imagination of everybody, fans and players alike,” Whiteford added. “It was one of the first sponsored tournaments, and the bonuses were absolutely amazing.

    “Just to put you in the picture, the wages at that time were about £35 to £40 a week, and we got a £10 bonus for each point in a league game.

    “For beating Stoke, we got a bonus of £250 and then £300 for beating Tottenham. At least the board were magnanimous enough to pass some of the money on to the players for going out and winning the game.

    “That was a big thing for the likes of Tam Forsyth, Joe Wark and myself who weren’t long married and in the process of buying things for the houses we were putting together. That’s how real it was, and it was a fantastic feeling.”

    Next up for Motherwell after defeating Spurs was a semi-final meeting with a much more familiar foe in Hearts.

    The first fixture took place at Tynecastle and finished 1-1, and due to a dispute over the date for the second leg, it was almost three months later when the deciding fixture took place in North Lanarkshire.

    The majority of the 25,300 crowd were dreaming of the final when Heron opened the scoring with 56 minutes on the clock, though they suffered late heartbreak when George Fleming levelled in the last few seconds of normal time.

    The ‘Well players were shattered after seeing victory slip through their fingers, and the momentum swung the way of the visitors during extra time.

    Their Texaco Cup dream would come to an end when Donald Ford shot under Billy Ritchie with five minutes left, and despite their best efforts, there would be no repeat of their heroic comeback against Tottenham.

    “We always felt like we got robbed against Hearts in the next round,” reflected Whiteford. “We were leading in that game, and they got an equaliser with the last kick of the ball,”

    “The equaliser came from a corner that shouldn’t have been awarded, and they went on to score again in extra time.

    “It was so disappointing, though despite the disappointment against Hearts, the memories of the Stoke City and Spurs games are incredible. The big games under the lights at Fir Park are so special.

    “It was a shame that as a team we couldn’t win any trophies, though many of our big players kept getting pinched away from us.

    “We lost Tam Forsyth to Rangers and Dixie Deans to Celtic. Taking those players out of the squad was a massive loss, and it still happens to this day to Motherwell.”

    Hearts would go on to face Wolves in the first-ever Texaco Cup final, with the English side narrowly clinching glory after a 3-2 aggregate triumph.

    The European credentials and qualities of both Tottenham and Wolves were backed up in the following season were backed up when the two sides contested the 1972 UEFA Cup final, with Nicholson’s men lifting the trophy following a fiercely contested two fixtures.

    The Texaco Cup would continue for a further four seasons, with Motherwell taking part in three of the four tournaments.

    The Troubles in Ireland led to the withdrawal of all Irish sides following the 1971/72 Texaco Cup, which began the steady decline of the competition.

    Organisers reacted to dwindling crowds by changing the format in 1975, with the tournament becoming the Anglo-Scottish Cup which was contested until 1981.

    Unfortunately, the status of the English sides during that time gradually declined, and many opted to play drastically weakened sides. That included one instance where Newcastle were disqualified from the competition after they were adjudged to have fielded an under-strength team in their 3-0 defeat against Ayr at Somerset Park.

    Another factor in the decline in the popularity of the tournament was increased success for British sides in European competition and a result the focus of both clubs and supporters shifted.

    Despite the Texaco Cup grinding to a reasonably unspectacular end – and five decades having passed since those memorable evenings under the Fir Park lights – Whiteford feels the tournament would be a welcome addition to the calendar if it were ever to make a return.

    “I think the very fact we were playing the top teams in the English game captured the imagination of the fans and the players,” he added.

    “It petered out, but I think it would certainly be a popular tournament if it were to return. It could be a shot in the arm if it were to be resurrected.”

    QUALITY

    My stream is buffering

    The quality of the live broadcast stream will be dependent on the bandwidth and speed of your internet connection. For the best possible experience, we recommend using an internet speed of at least 5Mbps. Please check with your internet provider.

    It can help to close other tabs, browsers, and programs while streaming your content. It may also help to hardwire your internet connection, instead of using a wireless network connection.

    You can also amend the stream quality by selecting the small cog icon at the bottom of the video player. From there, you can change from auto quality to fixed.

    SMART TVs

    It’s not working through my smart tv?

    If you are trying to watch the broadcast directly through the browser on your Smart TV, we cannot guarantee this will work. There are so many variations on the market with different browsers and firmware that one TV by a manufacturer may be different from another TV by the same manufacturer.

    If you can download Google Chrome on your Smart TV it should help. But, again, this is no guarantee. The best way to watch through your TV is to connect a device to it using an HDMI cable.

    What do I do if I am having problems with my Live Broadcast Stream on a matchday?

    There are three different video player links located under the main video player.

    All our video links offer adaptive streaming, which means it will always try to give you the highest quality. Sometimes this may not be the best option for your device, internet provider or home network so we recommend trying them all.

    PPV

    Why am I getting an ‘invalid credentials’ message?

    When you purchase the PPV stream through the PPV site, you need to ensure that you watch the game on the same site. Your PPV credentials will not work on the regular live site and vice versa. To avoid this please bookmark the PPV site after you purchase it.

    Logged in on one device but not accepted on the other?

    If you purchase the match pass on one device, for example, your phone, but wish to watch it on another, say your laptop, then you will need to ensure that you have fully logged out before logging back in.

    To do this, click sign out on your phone and then refresh the page. Then you can log in on the other device. If you are still having trouble, please clear your cache and cookies on your browsers for both devices and retry logging in.

    KICKED OUT

    The most likely reason you will be kicked out of the video stream of the live game will be because someone else has logged with your details as you. You will need to ask the other person to stop logging in as you if you wish to continue watching the game uninterrupted.

    Another reason could be that your connection is not strong enough to live stream the match. In this instance please try resetting your router and closing all open tabs on your device and log in again.

    Can I Cast?

    You should be able to screenshare the live broadcast to compatible Smart TVs using an app such as Chromecast or Apple Airplay.

    Android devices to Android TVs seem to be working well and links one, two and four work well for this.

    Apple / iOS devices work via AirPlay with Apple TVs. Apple / iOS devices to Android TVs seem to be causing some issues. We would recommend using a cabled HDMI solution for this to ensure the stream works for you or staying on your iOS device.

    As an alternative, laptops & MacBooks offer casting options too and people are reporting success through Firesticks using the browser Amazon Silk.

    Chromecast should work with one of the links if you are connecting from an Android device to your Chromecast device. From testing, links one, two and four should display the Chromecast icon on the player if your Android device is on the same network as your Chromecast.

    Apple have disabled their iOS devices from directly working with Chromecast through the web and you will have to download an app from their App Store. There are many to choose from and we cannot recommend any 1in particular but we have tested a few with success. Please be aware some of these apps have ads running within them and these are not coming from our site and we in no way endorse any or all of these products.

    Again, for Apple/iOS devices, if you want to connect to your TV please also consider an HDMI cable.

    NOT SEEING ANYTHING?

    Why am I not seeing anything / a white box?

    If you are not seeing anything or see a white screen displayed, this tends to be a browser issue, log out, close the browser completely and try an alternative browser. We suggest Google Chrome as it tends to be easy to use.

    You may need to update your browser, the most common browsers are Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari and Firefox. A simple Google query will help you find the correct place to update your browser.

    Anti-virus/security software can also block the video player and you will need to temporarily disable this software during the match before you login. VPNs and proxies will also interfere with the website and again will need to be disabled before logging in.

    You may also be logging into the wrong site that has the same login details as another site.
