thirdwell : (23 October 2017 - 03:48 AM)

I have spent the last hour reading some of the Rangers fans comments on the game. Each one of them said that the ref was a disgrace, that at least 3 Motherwell players should have been sent off and dozens of them claim to have heard the disgusting incident regarding Bowman breaking the nose!  In all my (almost) 50 years a 'Well fan I feel truly ashamed that the one and only great club in Scottish football is being victimised by the authorities (Rangers fans words not mine). I therefore urge that Motherwell, in fact all teams, that play Glasgow Rangers FC in future: do not tackle, do not jump for the ball, do not shot towards the Rangers goalmouth. If one of the opposition feels that a Ranger's player is a little tired or fatigued he should immediately notify the nearest official to have the game stopped so that said player may have a wee seat and a cuppa tea/coffee and a biscuit or two. This relaxation period is only relevant to players of RFC. If any other STEELMEN can think of any way that can improve Ranger chances of winning please feel free to add to the above list.

Preparations for 2017 Season have started. Captain Stacey Cook has re-signed for 2017, hopefully details of more sign ups soon. Also opportunities for player and match day sponsors for 2017 are available.

The SWPL official site has started updating for 2017 season.

 

http://www.womenspremierleague.co.uk

 

There is a piece on MLFC Ladies with an interview from Mark Kirk, so hope to see more about MLFC on that site. I think the Ladies team start back pre season on 10th January or thereabout 

 

I will be back in the New Year and try to keep people updated with my unofficial views from a fans perspective on the Ladies team.

The Ladies had there first pre-season friendly on Sunday at Glasgow Club Nethercraigs. Was good to see so many regulars back for the team for 2017. Especially good to see Pamela Liddell back after 18 months, and a baby, away.

 

The Glasgow City development team were as always strong and well organised with some of the 17's moving up to the Development team. MLFc took the lead with a goal from Suzanne Grant, The post and bar at both ends saw action. City equalised and then took a 2-1 lead. A fair few substitutions from both team before MLFC sub Alise ( Stewart ? ) got the game level again with a good run in from the right wing and a shot from the edge of the box deceived the city keeper. Winner came from no other than Pamela Liddell, through the middle and passed the keeper.  Really good pre season game, played almost like a cup tie at times. New signing Christie Kerr had a good steady game at centre half. A good test against a good, strong City Dev team. 2-3 to MLFC final score. Ladies used a couple of U17's and one other player at centre half i didn't recognise.

 

There are a few more pre season matches lined up with the next march away at Patrick Thistle Ladies on  Sunday. Dont know place and time yet.

Game 2 of PreSeason was away to Patrick Thistle at Lochinch 3G at Pollok Country Park. Some first team regulars were benched to give some potential new signings and trialists a start. A hard working Suzanne Grant got the first for well. Thistle got a goal back. A penalty for Well saw captain Stacy cook give the keeper no chance and HT 2-1 to Well. Was a good first half with some of the new girls settling in well, but this was a hard working thistle team who had gained promotion last year. Plenty of subs in the second half, with Pamela Liddell coming on and scoring with her first touch after a through ball and slotting past the keeper. A further 2 goals for Grant. FT 5-1 to well.

 

Was impressed by the hosts, much improved since I saw them last year beat MLFC Development team 4-0. Was a good preseason game with some good players turning out as trialists. Hopefully see some of them being signed.

 

Nest match is next Sunday home to Dundee Utd WFC.

 

MLFC Development team had their first game yesterday and beat United Glasgow 2-1

I was invited down to the Trust yesterday to meet with Linda Gibson and offer some fans feedback in respect of Motherwell Ladies Fc. An excellent 90 minute meeting where I put across my own personal views, moans and some ideas for the future. Too much discussed to put on here but happy to chat with anyone interested that wants to seek me out at a game. 

 

A few points here though:

 

* Home games will be at Ravenscraig 4pm kick off.

* Coach Mark Kirk is working VERY hard coaching, recruiting players. 

* Some great young players on trial, not enough training kit for them just now though.

* More team updates/news on twitter. Good to see this morning on twitter some more signings announced.

 

Next home game Sunday 5 February at Ravenscraig v Dundee United WFC.

A good runout for the Ladies at Ravenscraig this afternoon. Goals from Grant x 4, Liddell, Brown x 2 against a very good Dundee Utd WFC side. Again coach Mark Kirk was able to introduce some new faces. New signing Heather Magill at centre half had a great debut, skilful and confident on the ball. At full back Niamh Johnston had an excellent game throughout. The young DUFC keeper had an excellent game and was very confident in dealing with crosses. Goals from Grant, Liddell and Dionne Brown sealed the victory. Last kick of the ball was a 30 yard free kick from Dionne Brown, an absolute screamer.

 

Things on the park shaping up well for the season. 

 

Next Sunday at Ravenscraig 4pm v SWPL1 side Aberdeen Ladies could be a cracker against top league opposition, the week before the SWPL cup match against Spartans Women.

I believe that the Motherwell Ladies Facebook page is being revamped and might be launched this month. I am hopeful there will be some stats with player appearances and goals included.

 

For the avoidance of any doubt these posts related to Motherwell Ladies FC are my personal views and points. Anybody that thinks I may have got something incorrect feel free to contact me direct.

Well that was a pretty freezing King George 5 Park in Wishaw. Todays pre season friendly against SWPL 1 opposition Aberdeen Ladies. A different line up for Motherwell with some regulars not available or on the bench which gave some new signings and U17's a place in the starting line up. Impressed with Heather Magill and Niamh Johnson in the back line. Lauren Ray and Christie Kerr had good solid games in midfield. Amy Bulloch and Dionne Brown midfield were very impressive. Sara Mcwhirter, on her 16th birthday, playing in front of the midfield showed great skill and is on International duty with U16 squad week after next. Pamela Liddell playing as lone striker had a tough shift against a solid Aberdeen defence.

 

Aberdeen took the lead before Dionne Brown equalised when she ran from midfield on to a through ball and slotted past the keeper. HT 1-1. Aberdeen got the match winner with a low cross in from the right and an Aberdeen forward showed great skill in tucking it away at the near post. Weather and pitch conditions made it difficult for both teams. A fair few substitutions in the last 30 mins gave Suzanne Grant, Laura Smith and U17s Lauren Simpson, Lauren Whitehead and Amber ? a run out. The equaliser just did not happen and 1-2 is a fair reflection of the game. Aberdeen were impressive and should be very competitive in SWPL1 again this season. 

 

Next week MLFC again face SWPL1 opposition against Spartans in the league cup as the opener of the season. League business starts on 12 March.

Well Ladies lost their league cup tie against SWPL 1 opposition Spartans Women 3 - 4. Well goal scorers Liddell, Niamh Johnston x 2.

 

Well lined up with keeper Lauren McGregor in for her first match of the season. Lauren made numerous stops and kept Well in the game. My MOTM, best game I have seen her play. I thought Heather Magill and Niamh Johnston were immense at the back, making many brave and determined stops with fight aplenty. Niamh's first goal was from a goalmouth stramash and I have never seen a player so happy about scoring. Great to see.

Pamela Liddell was lone striker and put in some shift. very little came off for her unfortunately. Her goal came came from a shot at the edge of the box, low to the keepers left.

 

Spartans were up for the game and produced some excellent goals, the first 2 in particular.

 

Well were without Captain Stacey Cook serving the 3rd game of her suspension. Suzanne Grant was not available due to an issue over player registration. A player that scored 68 goals last term may well leave due to MFC CT not making any effort to retain her services. Will be a shame if this is allowed to happen.

 

Goals were

MLFC 0-1 Spartans

MLFC 0 - 2 Spartans 

MLFC(LIDDELL) 1 - 2 Spartans

HT

MLFC (JOHNSTON( 2 - 2 SPARTANS

MLFC 2 - 3 SPARTANS

MLFC 2 - 4 SPARTANS

MLFC (JOHNSTON ) 3 - 4 SPARTANS

 

Credit to Spartans who were a fit and skilful outfit. Disappointed to lose in the cup but credit to coach Mark Kirk, all new recruits have improved an already good team. Debut today to latest signing, Taylor Davis. MLFC should prove to be competitive in what will be a tough league.

Official launch of SWPL17 this morning at Hampden. Team Captain Stacey Cook representing Motherwell. There have been some interviews on SSN at lunchtime. There is likely to be increased media reports on the SWPL after agreements being reached with Sky and Daily Record for increased reporting on SWPL matches.

 

Waiting latest team news as I believe some players released, some seeking better football opportunities, and a couple of new signings with SWPL experience waiting to be formalised.

 

First home game of the season is Sunday March 12 4pm at Ravenscraig v Jeanfield Swifts. All are welcome to attend.

 

I went to the fundraising and team bonding activity at the Footgolf Cumbernauld last weekend organised by the MFC Podcast and sponsored by Patersons's Trophy Supplies. Girls are in good spirits and looking forward to the season start. Appears to me that Mark Kirk has rebuilt a good team and they are capable of challenging at the top of SWPL 2.

 

The Ladies Development team are 2 games in to their season with 1 defeat and 1 win so far. Not seen them play so far but wishing good luck to them for the season. They are away to Hawick on March 12.

 

views are my own. @alr57

Match 1.

 

Ladies lost 0-3 to Jeanfield Swifts at Ravenscraig.

 

A goal in 2 minutes from Jeanfield gave the Ladies something to think about. Well mounted some pressure on the Swifts goal with a few free kicks from dangerous positions. Despite a lot of effort nothing came from a lot of possession. 2nd half and 2 quick goals from Jeanfield after about 10 mins sealed the game. Lots of huffing and puffing from Well did not really amount to much. Mandy Burns who had received a first half yellow card, was dismissed halfway through the second half with what seemed to me to be a straight red card for foul and abusive language !!!!. 

 

In SWPL2 there are 3 officials, I say no more on the officials.

 

Well team performance was not what was expected, lack of discipline and a shape to the team which some players seemed unsure of. Plenty of effort from some players with Stacy Cook trying very hard to get things going. Just didn't happen for others despite the effort. Plenty to work on in training.

 

Development team had a 5-0 win away at Hawick. Well done to them.

 

Another very tough game next weekend in Shettleston against Glasgow Girls who narrowly missed out on promotion last season.

Doesn't sound as though things are going too well this season so far.  I know its a step up for the team but are we still short up front or have we more more new players to bring in?
