30th November was the run out date for player contracts for 2017. Looking forward to see what elite standard players Eddie will bring to the Ladies team. Not clear to me yet what structures and resources are being provided to support the Ladies, that in itself will be very interesting.

I hadn't the stomach to sit through Wednesday's "highlights", but what did Eddie say?

I didn't watch the highlights went fast forward to half time.

 

Eddie was mainly speaking about himself and his health. He is still mentally as sharp as a pin and is going to USA in January for some new treatment which is basically 2 injections, results on other stroke survivors have resulted in some gaining 100 per cent improvement and others having less but significant improvements. Also highlighted barriers and perception of having a disabled coach in the technical area. Made it very clear that a work life balance is essential in football and he will be giving more time to his family. Wants to work at the highest level and believes Motherwell can get there with a lot of hard work.

I have been toiling with a torn calf muscle so did not make the effort yesterday to Hibs Training Centre for the first pre season friendly against Hibs Development. Very windy conditions but Motherwell won 4-1. See @@Motherwelllfc twitter for a you tube of the goals. Kerry Montgomery x1, Trialist x1, Trialist x2.

 

Other news: @MotherwellLFC twitter has been excellent recently with signing news and post match comments. All part of the new strategy bringing the Ladies team directly in to the club framework.

 

New signings include Kerry Montgomery from Celtic, a NI international and a terrific addition. Clare Johnstone (GK) out of retirement but a sound and experienced keeper. Emma Black, defender, again out of retirement but was a Glasgow City regular. Ash Nicholson, previously with Spartans. More signings to be announced this week. From last season I know there are 4 or 5 players who I believe have signed up but no formal announcements as yet. 

 

8 teams making up the SWPL 2 again with 1 promotion place up for grabs. Likely to be a very tight league with no weak teams. Eddie Wolecki Black (EWB) is putting together a team to challenge at the top of this league. The league fixtures are out and just awaiting the league cup draw. Fixtures at SWPL site. First fixture is at newly promoted Kilmarnock 11 February.

 

Interesting times as Motherwell rebuild their team.

Another pair of quality signings with SWPL1 experience. Stephanie Knox from Celtic and Sammy Hare from Stirling Uni. Couple more new signings still to be announced together with those who have been re-signed from last season. Expect a full squad list towards the end of the month. No confirmed friendlies as yet to complete the pre season before the opener on 11 February at Kilmarnock.

Two more signings announced, Kirsty McLaughlin and Suzanne Mulvey.  It seems the team will be much stronger this year and better placed to push for promotion.

Season starts on 11 February. Motherwell LFC are away to FC Kilmarnock.

 

I got along to a pre season friendly  yesterday, against Falkirk FC who play in SWFL1. Wind and rain did not help the match but good effort from both teams. 0-5 win for Motherwell. EWB has made some terrific signings for the season ahead. I am sure we will be a team that is competitive at the top end of the league. We looked well organised and wanted to play football. It was pre season so don't want to pick out any stars but there is no doubting the quality of the new signings.

 

Very pleased to see from last season, Sarah Rhind(GK),Niamh Johnston,Heather Magill, Lauren Kerr, Kaitlin Canavan,Nicole Goodwin and Lauren Reside all returning. By my reckoning we currently have a squad of about 16 players so will be expecting a few more players to come in. Trialist that scored on sunday is coming on a season long loan from Hibs.

Nicole Goodwin is the only player remaining from the cup winning season of 2015.

 

EDIT to add: Sorry forgot about Sophie Gallagher who i believe has re-signed but is out long term injured just now. She was the Motherwell rep at the big SWPL publicity bash.

Wow, thats a big turn over. I know some of them will have retired but what about the rest? Have they moved on to higher levels or stayed at that level?

Sorry for all the questions, its just that I havent found a website that gives you much information about the team

Some players retired/moved on in 2015, again in 2016 5 or 6 moved on and 2017 saw a few retiring from playing or moving on. This season there are about 8 who have been signed up by EWB from last seasons team.

You can expect to see details of players/fixtures on a dedicated page on the Motherwell FC website in the very near future

 

Last season did not finish well for the Ladies team in terms of organisation and support to the team. It is to the credit of a number of senior players who held the team together to complete the season. Credit also to John and Ally who helped out with the team.

This season has seen the team move from the community trust to the main club. Credit to Alan Burrows he has a vision for this team to play at the highest level. The appointment of EWB is a huge statement of intent. The signing of a number of top quality players will ensure that Motherwell are competitive at the top of SWPL 2 and aiming for promotion. I believe the support from the club will be to fully support EWB to get this team as competitive as possible. SWPL2 will be a tough league to gain promotion from.

 

I have thoroughly enjoyed following this team and will continue to do so. Get along to some games if you can.
