    Apparently Sevco and Celtic fans will also be barred from the Cooper Suite.

    Away fans in the POD

    My mate who has a season ticket in the POD Stand was sent this earlier today: Dear Graeme , I write to you today to notify you of a policy change within the Phil O’Donnell Stand, where your season ticket is located. You will have noticed a significant increase in the number of visiting supporters housed in the north section of the stand during the 2018/2019 season. We often segregate the Phil O’Donnell Stand in this way for logistical reasons and to aid the maintenance team in terms of cleaning and repairs after the match. It also modestly reduces the requirement for gate checkers and safety stewards. However, we are aware that this decision by the club often raises more problems than it produces benefits. In light of that, I recently asked the club’s safety and facilities manager to complete an updated risk assessment, specifically on that section of the ground. I also sought feedback from supporters via the Well Society board. It is clear that any additional upside to having visiting supporters in the Phil O’Donnell Stand, either logistically or financially, is outweighed by the increased safety and security concerns it could and sometimes does cause. In particular, the assessment highlighted potential issues around entry and egress to the stand itself, access to the food kiosk and the use of the toilet facilities, all of which we are unable to properly segregate. In addition and in reference to those particular concerns, it is also evident from the feedback received from supporters that the housing of travelling fans within the Phil O’Donnell Stand spoils the overall matchday experience for a lot of fans that attend Fir Park to watch Motherwell at home matches every other week. As a result, and from the beginning of the 2019/20 season, all travelling supporters - regardless of the opposition, the anticipated visiting numbers or the category of the match - will be housed only in the South Stand behind the goal. Yours sincerely, Alan Burrows Chief Executive Motherwell Football Club

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48066166 Jake Hastie: Rangers' Steven Gerrard admits 'an interest' in Motherwell winger 6 minutes ago From the sectionMotherwell Sharethis page Jake Hastie (left) has impressed this season, including against Rangers Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Rangers are attempting to sign Motherwell winger Jake Hastie. The 20-year-old will be a free agent this summer and a report this week claimed he has agreed a pre-contract to sign a four-year deal with Rangers. Motherwell would be due a development fee for the player. "It's no secret that there's an interest there," manager Gerrard said. "But, until we get it complete, there's nothing really to say." McInnes denies Gerrard's Aberdeen claim Motherwell had offered Hastie, who has scored 11 goals in 41 appearances during his first full season, a contract extension. But manager Stephen Robinson believes he has already agreed to join another club. "Jake won't be signing for me," Robinson said. "I believe he has signed for another club, but it's not for me to announce that - I will leave that to other people." The Motherwell manager was more forthcoming when asked about 19-year-old midfielder David Turnbull winning five awards - including player and young player of the year - at the club's annual dinner. Turnbull - also in his first full season - has scored 11 times in 30 appearances. "For me, he is the young player of the year in Scotland, never mind Motherwell," Robinson said. "He's improved on the defensive side, he's got fitter, he's got stronger. The talent he had was always there. "He's caught everybody's attention. People are speaking very highly of him, a lot of people are looking at him and he deserves his recognition."
