Home games i suspect will either be at Ravenscraig or maybe Dalziel Park. I have not seen or heard anything to confirm where games will be played. However home ground and other criteria are being considered for next season by the SWPL.

The team are certainly signing quite a lot of seemingly good players.

That was a very good opening day win at FC Kilmarnock 1-2. Weather before and a few times during the game was terrible. Surface was snow covered for most of the first half. Credit to players of both teams for a very competitive game.
The game played out as i thought it might. FCK , newly promoted, did not want to get a hammering from an experienced Motherwell. Their play reflected that and most of the game saw there defenders, midfield and even forwards just punt the ball up the park at every opportunity. Motherwell were in control for the whole game but FCK were up for it and it was a good competitive game. The first goal game from an o.g header but Motherwell creating some good passing going forward with a good few chances created.
2nd half and again Motherwell creating a lot without an end product. FCK scored from a free kick outside the box and a good strike under the bar evaded the efforts of Claire Johnstone. Motherwell again continued to dominate and with a well struck free kick from Hayley Cunningham deflected off a defender Motherwell took a deserved lead again and the win.
EWB has gathered a well experienced group of players who are still getting to know each others game. EWB i am sure will be still working on best selection/formation but lots of positives going forward. Next 4 weeks likely to be very important with 3 home league games and Rangers away in the Cup. Lots to look forward to. Next sunday home game v EUHV.

You obviously think that Kilmarnock were very wary of us before a ball was kicked in anger, and you're probably right. Very early days of course but do you think the team is capable of winning of the league and earning promotion?

No question that FCK were very wary of the reputation of some of the Motherwell players. Having a team of very good players requires the coach to get them playing as a team, players in their best position and goals getting scored. That is only twice I have seen this Motherwell this year, and the signs are good. Strong all over the pitch with an excellent coach. IMO we are very likely to be right up there for promotion. We have Rangers in the SWPL cup away which is likely to be a tough game. It will be an interesting season.
