    Dean Cornelius signs new contract

    Dean Cornelius has signed a new contract with Motherwell FC until the summer of 2021.

    The youth academy graduate, who made his first team debut in May, has extended his deal for another season.

    “Dean has a real chance to push on and fight for a first team place in the coming years,” manager Stephen Robinson said.

    “We’ll continue to work hard with him every day to develop him as a player.”

    Cornelius, 18, played 12 minutes in the final game of the 2018/19 season against Livingston at Fir Park, marking his first appearance for the club.

    “It means everything to me to play for Motherwell,” he said on signing the new deal. “It was a big moment to make my debut last year and I’m keen to keep working for more opportunities.

    “I’m continuing to learn every single day with the coaching staff at the club and I’m committed to giving myself the chance to break through to the first team.”

    Reserves draw at Celtic

    Motherwell took a point in a 1-1 draw at Celtic in the SPFL Reserve League Cup on Monday afternoon.

    Ross MacIver’s opener in the match was cancelled out by Jonathan Afolabi, before the hosts went on to claim a bonus point in the penalty shootout.

    It was another youthful Motherwell side, with first team experience coming from youngsters Jamie Semple, Dean Cornelius and David Devine.

    Four minutes in, the Steelmen had the lead. A short back pass and failure to clear by Hughes presented MacIver with his opportunity to slot the ball home.

    On the half hour mark, Celtic were level. Combination play between Dembele and Afolabi then saw the latter chip Morrison from an angle.

    Both sides would have chances in the second period, but the game would finish level and with an opportunity to take a crucial bonus point in the group.

    Celtic would prevail 4-2, securing top spot and progression to the semi-finals. Motherwell have a game left to try and finish as the best runner-up from the three groups, taking on Dundee at home on 27 January.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Brown, Hussain, Devine, Muir, Semple, Cornelius, Hale, Hutchison, MacIver, Starrs.

    Subs: Hemfrey, Robertson, Williamson, McDonald.

    A youthful Motherwell side lost out 2-0 at Dunfermline Athletic in the SPFL Reserve League on Tuesday.

    Dunfermline took control within the first 16 minutes, netting twice from corner kicks.

    Bowman’s corner from the right initially found Todd, whose shot was turned in by Coulson with 12 minutes played.

    Four minutes later, it was 2-0. Another Bowman delivery was met in the air by Morrison, who headed home.

    Motherwell grew into the game into the second half and started to carve out chances.

    Hutchison went close with a header close to the hour mark, shortly after Dunfermline almost put through their own net, only for their player to fire back off his own crossbar.

    Motherwell: Morrison, J Brown, Muir, Devine, Hussain, Hutchison, Hale, Cornelius, MacIver, Robertson (Kettings), Starrs.

    Subs: Hemfrey, Williamson, R Brown.

    Motherwell made it two wins in a row in the SPFL Reserve League on Monday, defeating Queen of the South 4-0.

    A Ross MacIver double, with further goals from Sherwin Seedorf and Christy Manzinga, gave Maurice Ross’ side a convincing victory at Broadwood.

    After some early chances for the hosts, Seedorf opened the scoring with 25 minutes gone.

    Casper Sloth played the winger in down the right, before he cut inside, beat his man and fired the ball into the top corner.

    Five minutes before the break, it was two. Manzinga got to the byline and cut it back to the forward, who slotted the ball home.

    Manzinga then made it three after 56 minutes with a superb finish from a tight angle, before MacIver swept home his second in the 67th minute from Brown’s through ball.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Brown, Hussain, Devine, Muir, Sloth, Cornelius, Semple, MacIver, Seedorf, Manzinga.

    Subs: Hemfrey, Robertson, Hale, Starrs, Kettings.

    Reserves win at Kilmarnock

    Motherwell came from behind to claim victory in the SPFL Reserve League at Kilmarnock on Monday.

    Goals from Jamie Semple and James Scott, cancelling out Rory McDonald’s early free kick, gave all three points to the visitors.

    Several first-team squad members featured at Rugby Park, with Richard Tait, Barry Maguire, Christian Ilic and Christy Manzinga joining the goal scorers.

    But it would be the hosts who would take the early advantage, after Scott was ruled to have fouled his man 20 yards from goal.

    McDonald stepped up and curled home to give Kilmarnock the lead.

    Kilmarnock were to be thwarted by PJ Morrison and Jack Brown as they pushed close to extending their lead, but had to settle for a 1-0 half-time advantage.

    Motherwell came out the stronger and, shortly after Scott hit the crossbar with a header, Semple restored parity.

    His quick free-kick was out to Manzinga on the left-hand side. The forward then returned the pass to Semple on the edge of the box, who curled his shot past the dive of the Kilmarnock ‘keeper and into the net with 62 minutes played.

    Four minutes later, Motherwell were ahead.

    Morrison’s long ball forward wasn’t dealt with by the defender, allowing Scott to nick in and chip the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper. He then collected the ball on the other side, before knocking the ball in.

    Kilmarnock then went close late on as they chased an equaliser, but Motherwell held on to get a win under their belt.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Tait, Hussain, Devine, Brown, Maguire, Cornelius, Semple, Ilic, Scott, Manzinga.

    Subs: Hemfrey, MacIver, Hale, Muir, Kettings, Trialist.
