Not all doom and gloom. Some good young players with much potential have been signed as well as great additions to the coaching staff. The team has been rebuilt and will need time to gel and organise. A couple of new signings still to make first team appearance. I have seen plenty of effort and commitment from our players and staff. Maybe they are being let down by the attitude of a few and the organisation setup of MLFC. The team were sporting their new kit on Sunday which was good to see. Unfortunately Motherwell FC does not seem to believe in the 'One Club' philosophy which appears to be happening with other ladies teams, and possibly more support could be given.

Motherwell Ladies FC suffered a 1-2 loss to Glasgow Girls at Greenfield Football Centre this afternoon. No scoring at HT with Motherwell having most of the possession and 5 or 6 goal efforts. Playing a 4 -5 - 1 type of formation with Suzanne Grant returning to the line up. The second half saw a Stacey Cook free kick give Motherwell the lead. Glasgow equalised soon after with a great strike and got a winner just after. Motherwell again dominated in spells but a hard working Glasgow side worked their way in to the lead. A few more late chances for Motherwell came to nothing. A much improved team effort but no wins from 2 in this league campaign.

 

Next league match in 2 weeks away to Forfar Farmington.

Still plenty of work to be done by the Ladies team.

 

A tidy and well organised Forfar Farmington beat MLFC 5-3 at a wonderfully sunny Station Park Forfar. Forfar went 5 up before any reply from MLFC.

 

The first half saw some chances for MLFC but Forfar dominated the half with good wing play and a good organisation going forward. MLFC looked disorganised and uncomfortable for most of the game. Suzanne Grant went off with a knee injury, replaced by Nicole Goodwin. Forfar took their first goal well and the referee awarded Forfar a penalty. McGregor went near but 2-0 at HT.  

A further 3 goals saw them go 5-0 up before any reply from MLFC. Nicole Goodwin placed shot, a strike from Pamela Liddell and a third goal from Stacey Cook. Last 30 minutes were much better.

 

Some shocking decisions from todays Referee, missing a obvious shirt pulling in the box, overruling a linesman who flagged for use of an arm to control the ball by Forfar which led to a goal and a completely unnecessary booking. Very poor and disappointing at this level. 

 

Coach Mark Kirk needs to get the defence to stop shipping goals. A much improved MLFC in the last 20 minutes after going to a back 3, Sara McWhirter introduced as a sub in midfield made one of the goals with a defence splitting pass and all 3 goals were well taken.

 

Still bottom of the league with no wins from 3 in the league, A possible serious knee injury to Suzanne Grant is a concern. Missed Mandy Burns( still suspended ) and could only provide 3 subs. Lots for MLFC staff and players to work on. 2 weeks time home game v Hearts.

I see we play Hearts at home today.  Hopefully Greg Rodgers will steady things.

Pleased to say that the Ladies team are back to winning ways. A home win against Hearts and yesterday a 0-3 win over Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale. A great chip/lob shot from the corner of the box from Mandy burns gave well the lead. EUHV had some chances but an on form Lauren McGregor produced some good stops, both ball and player !!. A free kick from outside the box came to Stacey Cook who headed home just before halftime. Second half and a well organised and hard working EUHV had more chances, but with about 20 mins left and from near the half way line, Mandy Burns saw the keeper off her line and launched an up and under which cleared the goalie and off the underside of the bar for the 3rd goal.

 

An outstanding display from Mandy Burns for her 2 goals, but great performances all round. Nicole Goodwin getting better with every game she starts, 17yo Lauren Simpson settling well into the Ladies team and is one to watch. Lauren Kerr in midfield showing experience and grit in the midfield. 

 

Credit to Greg Rodgers who seems to have the team set up well and back scoring goals.4 games coming up against what may be the weaker teams in the league. 12 points are possible and would see the Ladies shoot up the table. Home and away games with Buchan and East Fife.

 

All the best to Amy Bulloch and Dionne Brown who have moved on. Team still looking to strengthen so won't be surprised to see further signings next few weeks.

Two good results on the trot now that indicate the team may be settling into the higher division.  Its also significant that they came after the previous manager left.  Maybe the change was a catalyst for improvement.   Whatever the reason lest hope it continues. Also encouraging that we may be looking to add to the squad.
