    The Dons have had a strong start to their competitive 2022/23 season. They finished top of their Premier Sports Cup group, scoring 12 goals and conceding zero.

    An opening day 2-0 defeat to champions Celtic was followed by a convincing 4-1 victory over St Mirren on Saturday. New signing Miovski, Clarkson and Duk all got on the scoresheet.

    Motherwell continue their search for a permanent boss, with the Steelmen having a mixed start to their 2022/23 cinch Premiership campaign.

    After beating St Mirren 1-0 in Paisley on the opening day, a late Stevie May finish sunk the ‘Well to their first defeat of the season at Fir Park on Saturday.

    Dundee United 1-1 Motherwell

    Dundee United 1-1 Motherwell

    A difficult afternoon for Motherwell as the women of steel struggled to break down an organised Dundee United side, who held on in a disappointing season opener for Paul Brownlie’s side.

    Danni McGinley netted Dundee United’s first ever top-flight goal early into the first half before Kaela McDonald-Nguah levelled from the penalty spot.

    Looking to impose themselves, last season’s SWPL2 champions started brightly and almost found the opener after only four minutes.

    Latching onto Jade Mclaren’s long ball, Robyn Smith sliced through the Motherwell defence, but the strikers powerful effort rattled off the crossbar in what was an early warning sign from the hosts.

    United continued to threaten and eventually netted the opener after ten minutes. Summer signing Emily Mutch was caught in possession on her six-yard box, and McGinley was on hand to calmly place her strike into the empty net.

    The hosts were denied a second minutes later as Lauren Doran-Barr’s last-ditch challenge diverted Smith’s close-range effort wide of the post.

    With the second half underway, Motherwell quickly sought to rectify their first half display. Katie Rice’s floated corner kick accurately picked out Chelsie Watson unmarked in the box, but the defender couldn’t divert her effort towards goal.

    Motherwell were then unlucky not to score when Carla Boyce nicked in front of the defender and tried to dink the ball into the net, however her effort came off the bar.

    The women of steel were convinced they should’ve been awarded a penalty after Lucy Ronald’s cross struck the arm of Tammy Harkin, but the referee quickly waived play on despite the adamant pleas from the Motherwell technical area.

    After waves of attacking pressure, Motherwell finally found their reward. Ronald was bundled down deep into the United penalty area, leaving the referee no alternative but to point to the spot.

    McDonald-Nguah stepped up and confidently placed her strike into the top-right corner.

    Motherwell move on to face runners-up Glasgow City at K-Park next week.

    Paul Brownlie took over at Fir Park as head coach and head of women and girl’s performance at the end of the 2020/21 season, and right away set to work on a massive overhaul.

    The women’s team at Fir Park had suffered a tumultuous year, with the problems caused by the Covid-19 pandemic contributing to a season where survival was all that mattered.

    They would achieve their objective, finishing third-bottom of the table, four points ahead of Hearts who ended last, though there was still a great deal of work ahead.

    Recruiting former Scotland international Leanne Crichton as player/assistant manager was Paul’s first big addition to the setup and over the months leading up to the beginning of the campaign, he would continue to bolster his squad with a whole host of new additions.

    The Women of Steel would go on to perform well in Brownlie’s first year in charge, finishing one place higher in the league and registering a significantly better points tally.

    Much of their improved fortunes could be put down to a strong ending to the season, and Brownlie admits that preparations for their first game this time round have been significantly different.

    “The challenge for us at Motherwell is how we kick on this season and the players know that,” said Brownlie.

    “The players have got short, medium and long term objectives in terms of what it is that we want to achieve going forward.

    “There’s a real sense of belief now things are settled. It’s a totally different environment when you compare it to last season when we were preparing for the Glasgow City game on the first day and didn’t feel settled at that stage.

    “The players were given off- season programmes, which was something that they didn’t have last season due to the timescales. It has also given us the opportunity to meet up with the players too and discuss areas where they did well and where they can improve.

    “It’s testament to the players and to their characters, they’ve created a real environment and they
    push each other in every training session.

    “We know it’s going to be difficult, there’s been large investment across the board, however we’ve invested well too. At Motherwell we don’t have that professional model as yet, but what we do have is players that have a professional mentality and that’s going to be really important for us going forward.”

    Motherwell ended their pre-season preparations with a 6-1 victory over Gartcairn, taking their record to four wins and one defeat in five preparation fixtures during July.

    As well as performing well in matches, Brownlie has been thrilled with the dedication of his existing squad and recruitment of new players over the summer months.

    Most of the core of the squad have remained in ML1 for the new season, and the Well boss has

    also added Brogan Anderson, Emily Mutch, Emma Lawton and Lucy Ronald to the ranks.

    “The players have been excellent, they’ve really bought into what myself, Leanne and other staff has tried to implement,” he added. “Last season we were trying to build a team, it was a massive transition then compared to this year where we’ve been able to focus much more on how we are going to approach things tactically and work on our principles in and out of possession.

    “There’s not been a big overhaul in terms of the playing group, the players we’ve identified, we’ve managed to get which is excellent. There were some players who left the club, but we feel that quality has got a lot better, which is the ongoing target.

    “Everybody we wanted to keep stayed, even when some had offers where they may have been better off financially. They’ve stayed here because I think there’s a real buy-in to what Leanne and I are trying to achieve.

    “In terms of our transfer strategy, we’ve got two approaches, the first is the academy which we are trying to build, bringing youth players through is so important – we’ve had five players in over the summer from the academy and they’ve got good time as well.

    “From there it was about identifying other quality, SWPL2 has always been part of the strategy in terms of who they best players are in there. We’ve been able to go get Brogan Anderson and Lucy Ronald, who were two of the best players in that league.

    “We were also able to get in Emily Mutch, we knew the goalkeeping department was going to be absolutely huge for us this season and knew we had to get it right. That’s no disrespect to the goalkeeper who was here before, but to bring Emily in was a huge a signing for the football club, the fact she’s still so young, but she’ll bring in so much quality too.

    “I think it was signing that showed the distance this football club has travelled, certainly during my time anyway, she’s a fantastic talent with a great future ahead of her.”

    As well as signing players with exciting futures ahead of them, the future looks bright with a number of prospects emerging from the youth academy.

    London Pollard and Jemma Hughes will both join up with the Scotland’s Under-19s squad in the midweek for a training camp, and Pollard has already made an impact for the national team having scored twice and making three assists during wins over Kazakhstan, Estonia and Kosovo.

    Brownlie believes that international honours for his players demonstrates the huge strides the club is making.

    Having previously worked with the Motherwell elite academy at Braidhurst, Paul is keen to put that experience into building a pathway for young female players to excel.

    “Jemma has come through the youth system here, and London established herself in the squad last season,” Paul explained.

    “By all accounts her performances were excellent, she got a couple of assists and a couple of goals.

    “The challenge for her is to go cement her place in the team this year, and can she add it to that? Can she improve her goal tally? Go embrace the experience of what youth international football gives you?

    “For Jemma the target is to get into the squad as well, she was in and around a couple of the training camps, but never quite made that final jump into one of the squads until now.

    “That has to be a realistic target, especially with the quality she showed at the end of last season, everyone at Motherwell certainly believes she is good enough to play at that level.

    “We’ve made huge strides, it was a big part of the remit for me when I walked through the door here. I quickly recognised we had to make a performance pathway to help young girls play at this football club.

    “I think everyone knows the success that Steven Hammell and the guys have had within the elite academy. I was fortunate enough to work alongside them for a year, and wanted to build something similar for the girls. We’re around 10 months into the process of building the project and the strides we’ve taken have been phenomenal.

    “We’ve tried to be different in terms of what we offer young players and think at this time, the academy is evolving really well – there are some brilliant young players who in time will be future first team players and future Scotland players as well.”

    After a season playing at Alliance Park, K-Park in East Kilbride is set to be the new home of Motherwell women in 2022/23.

    In April, Fir Park hosted almost 800 supporters as Brownlie’s side took on Hamilton.

    It was a demonstration as to the interest in women’s football in Scotland, though the Well gaffer realises they have to carry on that momentum.

    This summer’s European Championships may not have featured Scotland, but given the widespread attention the tournament has received, Brownlie insists the landscape for women’s football north of the border has never looked better.

    He also praised key figures behind the scenes at Fir Park, for driving the highest standards both on and off the pitch.

    “The people who work behind the scenes here, they’ve got a real passion for this football club and they are determined to do whatever they can to make it successful,” added the former Scottish FA high performance manager.

    “I’ve had real support from Alan Burrows and Steven Hammell – I try to convey their passion to the players, and they all recently attended the Sligo home game.

    “We want to be fully integrated within the football club, which we are, and everyone is working on striving to make the women’s department bigger and stronger.

    “Something we encourage the first team and academy players to do is go watch games. I think that’s a unique way to learn. We’re constantly telling the kids at the club to watch players who play in their position and to find their role models.

    “That’s something we’re trying to do in the first team here as well, we want players at Motherwell who youngsters can aspire to and look up to.

    “We had a fantastic event at Fir Park last season where the team played in front of just under 800 fans, and how we engage with those supporters moving forward is going to be crucial – they are going to be part of our journey.

    “The quality we’ve seen from start to finish at the Euro’s has been fantastic, and it’s important that these young players aspire to get to that next level. There’s much more opportunities in this country now, some clubs are going full time and others adopting hybrid models – I’m sure over time that’s something we’ll be doing at Motherwell as well.”

    Following tomorrow’s trip to Dundee United at Thomson Park, the home of Lochee Juniors, Motherwell
    will host last season’s runners-up Glasgow City.

    It is sure to be a stern challenge, but an impressive end to 2021/22 and a strong pre-season has given plenty of cause for optimism.

    The team won their final two league matches and also contested two matches against eventual champions Rangers where they lost both fixtures by a single goal.

    A look back on previous results against some of the tops teams shows that a one goal defeat is certainly positive progress, and Brownlie and his staff continue to try further steps forward.

    “We finished last season on a real high in terms of the last five games we won three, and lost to Rangers in the other two narrowly – we had a bit of momentum,” he continued.

    “We know Dundee United’s qualities and have made sure we have done our homework as a staff group.

    “There isn’t a team that train any more than what we train, the volume of training here is getting players better every single training session and that’s the target for them.

    “We’re quite hard on them in terms of the intensity of the training sessions, but that is what is needed to compete with the top teams – we’ve trained five times this week in the build-up to the Dundee United game.

    “We’ve got our targets internally, we made good use of our time on the bus to the friendly at Sunderland to discuss with the players what our aims were, breaking it down monthly.

    “We know the challenge, but it’s one that all the players are up for.”

    Chloe Forrest joins Glasgow Women on loan

    Academy graduate Chloe Forrest has joined Glasgow Women on loan for the rest of the season. 

    The centre-half, who has been involved in pre-season friendly matches this season, is looking to push onto the next step ahead of her push to break into the first-team.

    “We have high hopes for Chloe,” head coach Paul Brownlie added.

    “She is a young, hungry and talented individual with an excellent work ethic.

    “We that this loan spell is an opportunity for her to play regular first team matches in SWPL1 and allow her to progress as a player.

    “I am excited to see how she gets on this season and will be monitoring her progress closely.”

    Hammell reacts to St Johnstone loss

    “The overwhelming feeling right now is disappointment. At the very least, we should be coming away with a point today.”

  • First team

    Motherwell 1 – 2 St Johnstone

    Motherwell 1 – 2 St Johnstone

    Stevie Hammell’s return to the Motherwell dugout as interim manager was a disappointing one, as St Johnstone nicked all three points with a late Stevie May winner.

    Stephen O’Donnell’s goal at the start of an additional six minutes cancelled out Jamie Murphy’s first half opener and provide the Steelmen with a deserved share of the points.

    Ultimately, despite a stirring second half, the the Fir Park men paid the penalty for a lackluster first forty five minutes. Until the final minutes the Perth side clung on to Murphy’s goal with some solid defending and a slice of luck to keep ‘Well at bay.

    On a pristine Fir Park pitch, the home fans seemed undaunted by the last performance against Sligo Rovers as they gave the players a rapturous welcome.

    Hammell made two changes, Bevis Mugabi coming in for the suspended Ricki Lamie and Stephen O’Donnell filling Jake Carroll’s spot at left back.

    In a positive start from the Steelmen, Sean Goss won a free kick wide of the box. Kevin van Veen elected to go for goal but his curling shot soared over the crossbar.

    Goss was next to try his luck after 16 minutes, but after being set up by Josh Morris 25 yards from goal, the left sided midfielder dragged his shot wide of target.

    Clumsy tackles and careless passing from both sides prevented either from gaining a hold on the game.

    The game needed a spark and it almost came from Saints after 25 minutes. After conceding possession at the edge of the box the ‘Well defenders could only watch as Theo Bair drove the ball straight at Liam Kelly.

    Motherwell failed to heed that warning and three minutes later they fell behind.

    Mugabi and Bair rose at the edge of the box and as the ball drifted behind them, former ‘Well goal scoring hero Murphy latched onto the ball before driving his shot low across the diving Kelly and inside the ‘keeper’s far post.

    That injected a bit of life into the home side and four minutes later they were inches away from an equaliser.

    Barry Maguire and Morris kept possession at the edge of the Saints’ box and when the ball bobbled to Connor Shields, he fired a speculative shot past Remi Matthews only to watch it bonce back off the ‘keeper’s right hand post.

    The home goal then had a lucky escape seven minutes from half-time.

    Cammy MacPherson headed the ball back across the face of Kelly’s goal but with Andy Considine standing a few yards from the goal-line Sondre Solholm hammered the ball off the former Aberdeen defender and away to safety.

    The first half ended with van Veen again firing over Matthews’ cross bar as the Saints’ ‘keeper waited to make his first save of the game.

    Hammell recognised his side’s lack of goal threat and brought on Dean Cornelius and Joe Efford for the start of the second half.

    And it had an immediate effect when van Veen sent Efford in behind Alex Mitchell but as the American striker was about to pull the trigger, the Saints’ defender made a terrific recovering tackle.

    At the other end Solholm made an equally impressive intervention to squeeze MacPherson’s cross just beyond the inrushing Bair.

    With an hour on the clock van Veen set out on a solo effort drifting across the box before his tame left foot drive gave Matthews a comfortable save.

    As ‘Well pressed for an equaliser, chaos in the Saints’ six yard box set up a chance for Shields only to see his effort blocked by the combined efforts of Matthews and Mitchell.

    Motherwell made another substitution after 67 minutes with Ross Tierney replacing Blair Spittal.

    Mugabi’s mazy fifty yard run after 74 minutes earned him applause from the ‘Well fans and a free kick wide on the right but the inswinging ball from Goss found no takers.

    A minute later McGinn’s inviting cross did find a team mate but Shields glancing header sent the ball wide when he really should have tested the ‘keeper.

    For the third time in the second half there were strong appeals for a Motherwell penalty when Ryan McGowan barged into Tierney’s back but once again Willie Collum ignored the claims.

    With eight minutes remaining Matthews’ was forced into a last gasp save when Goss mishit his trike from outside the box but the bounce was carrying the ball just under the bar until the ‘keeper raced back to palm the ball over his crossbar.

    In a final attempt to grab a point Irish striker Robbie Mahon was given 10 minutes to find an equaliser.

    In the first of six added on minutes ‘Well eventually found the net.

    Goss whipped a corner into the six yard box and O’Donnell’s header directed the ball low into the far corner of the goal.

    Incredibly, three minutes later Saints regained the lead.

    Following a corner McGowan steered a header behind the ‘Well defence, where May ghosted in to steer the ball low beyond Kelly and take all three points back to Perth.

    Liam Kelly is looking up

    Liam Kelly is looking up

    After a week of tumult and torment, Liam Kelly’s shake of the head was borne out of a mixture of relief and pride.

    “Best feeling in the world,” muttered the Motherwell captain deep inside the tunnel at St Mirren, the noise of a vocal ‘Well support echoing down the long corridor way after full time.

    The contrast in emotions for Kelly and his team-mates at 5pm on Sunday were stark compared to what had gone on in the days before.

    Undone and outdone in Ireland on Thursday by Sligo Rovers, a sense of gloom grew deeper with the departure of Graham Alexander as manager the following day. Looking back just two weeks earlier before a competitive ball was kicked, this is not how it was meant to go.

    But for all the sleepless nights among supporters making their way back across the Irish Sea, the fact a dream start to the Premiership campaign was cleaved out on Sunday is a monumental source of satisfaction for Kelly as the Well keeper looks towards his first season as captain.

    “The most important thing on Sunday was getting the three points. It’s been a difficult couple of weeks, but it’s also been a difficult few months,” said Kelly.

    “The feeling on Sunday was fantastic and I think the scenes at the end, that’s what we want. That’s what Motherwell as a club is all about. That togetherness, from everyone on the touchline in the stand, they were all with us 100% of the way.

    “It’s the best possible start for us against a really good team.”

    For all that the exit from the Europa Conference League qualifiers wasn’t in the script for this Motherwell team, passion and pride have never been far away from the players or supporters.

    That point was personified in the role of Stevie Hammell on Sunday. The academy director was hauled home from a family holiday in Arran to look after first-team duties over the weekend, and already Kelly believes the Well legend has made his mark.

    With 582 appearances in claret and amber, the former left-back is Motherwell’s post-war record appearance holder. It is no surprise, then, that the respect of the dressing room has been firmly with 40-year- old.

    “He was full of passion,” said Kelly of Hammell’s pre-match team talk on Sunday.

    “You can tell the game and representing Motherwell is a massive thing for Hammy, as it is for every single person in that changing room, and that passion was shown towards us.

    “There were a lot of tactics, too, but he gave us a freedom to go and express ourselves and show what we can do. He’ll be looking forward to putting his own message across and all the boys are behind him. He’s had a really positive impact on the group, and you saw that on Sunday.

    “You see Hammy making his mark with Kian [Speirs, who got his debut on Sunday]. It’s great for him to come on the park. It would have been better if Ricki [Lamie] was still on as he would have been able to show his own assets, but I thought he did brilliantly when we went down to 10 men.

    “It’s good to show that it doesn’t matter what age you are. Whether you’re 16 or 36. If the manager at the time thinks you’re good enough, you get that opportunity. That’s what Motherwell has been about for as long as I can remember, and I know Stevie Hammell will be keen to promote the youth.”

    While the start of any new season is exciting, the forthcoming campaign represents a significant year for Motherwell’s No.1.

    Despite only being 26, Kelly takes over the duty as captain at Fir Park after being given the role by former manager Alexander before his departure.

    It’s clear this is a role Kelly takes great pride in. It’s no secret it suits his nature. During Covid times instructions and words of support were clearly audible to anyone lucky enough to be inside the stadium, so passing on messages shouldn’t be a problem.

    But more importantly, there is a positivity and dedication from Kelly which will stand him in good stead as he tries to be a leader on and off the pitch in ML1.

    “I do try and get the message from the manager across if we’ve been given instruction to play a certain way. I’ll commit to the manager’s plan and try to organise the team as best we can,” he said.

    “I enjoy speaking through the game. It keeps me focused and gives me the best chance if I’m needed.”

    Kelly added: “It’s an incredible privilege and honour to have been asked. Before the manager left, he asked me and it was a role I accepted.

    “Obviously Stephen O’Donnell was captain last season and I learned a lot from him about how to go about things and conduct myself. I just try to be myself. I think I have a brilliant relationship with everyone in the building, there’s not a person I don’t get on with. I try my best every week. I’m committed to the club, I’m committed to giving everything I can every week.

    “It’s an incredible privilege and an honour to be asked to be captain for this great club.”

    While things didn’t go to plan in either leg, Kelly says it was a pinch-me moment as he hauled on the arm band before walking his team out against Sligo at a jam packed Fir Park last month.

    Not that they need it, but Captain admits it provides added motivation to deliver success again this season for supporters.

    Last season’s fifth-place finish provided a shot at European football, but Kelly is keen to emphasise that an exciting campaign is just getting underway even if the sun has set on the Fir Park club’s European exploits.

    After Kevin van Veen’s penalty earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory on the opening weekend against St Mirren, overcoming the toughtask faced in St Johnstone today would help blow away the clouds which followed the claret and amber-clad support back from Sligo.

    “It was an unbelievable experience walking out as captain at Fir Park to see all the support. The display they put on was incredible. The responsibility and guilt that we didn’t give them the result they deserve is there, and it’s up to us to try and make up for that in the league and cup competitions this year.

    “As much as it will never replace doing well in a European competition, it’s the least we can do for the support that was given. It was an unbelievable experience.”

    Kelly’s heroics in goal on Sunday will come as little surprise to anyone who has watched him develop into an international- class goalkeeper during his time at Fir Park.

    An incredible reaction stop in Paisley in the first half – where an arm clawed the ball away while he was going in the opposite direction – was potentially outdone in the second half with a world-class stop to get down low and scoop a goalbound effort acrobatically over the bar.

    As mentioned already, this is a big season for Kelly at Fir Park, but also at international level. For the last 12 months, the former Queens Park Rangers shot stopper has been regularly chosen by Scotland boss Steve Clarke, however a maiden senior cap has yet to come the way of the talented goalie.

    But Kelly remains positive and optimistic. While veteran keeper Craig Gordon has been Scotland’s first-choice for some time, at just 26 Kelly has time on his side to push the Hearts man and anyone else who joins the national team to compete for a spot between the sticks.

    “I’ve been away with Scotland for the last year now, it’s the best possible achievement. You only get it if you’re doing well for the club and deems the performances good enough,” said the ex-Livingston man.

    “I’m playing with an incredibly talented group of players. My main focus is just trying to stay in amongst it and push the rest of the goalkeepers. I’m honest and open and vocal about the standard of the keepers in the league, and that’s no different with Scotland, none more so than with big Craig.

    “I’ll keep trying to play well for Motherwell and not take anything for granted, and push Craig as much as I can.”

    But how does a Scotland player pass the time?

    Previous interviews with former Motherwell man Declan Gallagher revealed, coffee clubs, Call of Duty platoons and various other exciting pursuits to keep the players ticking over while on international duty.

    “There’s a younger generation,” explained Kelly. “Me, Nathan Patterson, Ross Stewart, Jacob Brown enjoy chilling and playing a few games when we are away. It helps pass the time.

    “My group is a wee bit old school.”

    Story of the Match

    Dundee United cruised SWPL2 last season and were crowned champions and are looking to now establish themselves as a top flight club.

    Motherwell took on Dundee United in their first pre-season match back in July, with London Pollard scoring the only goal of the game to secure a 1-0 victory for the women of steel.

    Paul Brownlie has made four new additions to his squad this season, all of them featuring in pre-season thus far.

    New signing Brogan Anderson netted four against Glasgow Women last month, with Motherwell signing off their pre-season schedule with a 6-1 win against Gartcairn.
