    How much of a genuinely decent guy Andy was comes through loud and clear from all the posts on here. I consider myself lucky enough to have known him in some capacity for many years, since the old WTFC days - regularly engaging in conversation online originally, meeting him at the odd game or a train on an away day over the years, getting to listen to his really level-headed and thoughtful views when recording podcasts with him a few years back, and often receiving messages from him with ideas and suggestions for the Well Society in the last few years (the Exiles Club in the Society, for example, is the direct result of him e-mailing me with thoughts on how his original Exiles Club from the 90s could be re-introduced in some way as part of the Society). A true gentleman who'll be sadly missed.

    The Well Society

    Just a few things that folk may have missed recently (although all members should receive the newsletter every Friday keeping them up to date, if you don't you may have unsubscribed in the past or are receiving it to junk mail - if the former, give Craig a shout at the WS): Ballot for two new Board members: http://www.thewellsociety.co.uk/2018/09/28/well-society-board-elections-voting-now-open/ Member vote on potential investment in Community Trust Project: http://www.thewellsociety.co.uk/2018/09/28/motherwell-football-club-community-trust-project-wellbeing/ Former Players Nostalgia Night returns: http://www.thewellsociety.co.uk/2018/09/05/former-players-nostalgia-night-returns/ Membership-related questions like this would be better put to Craig Hughes, he can be e-mailed at [email protected]

    The Well Society

    One for the Exiles... At the beginning of the season we launched our Exiles Club, an initiative with the aim of connecting ‘Well fans all over the world who can’t make it to Fir Park on a regular basis. The Club has already been a success, with around 50 Steelmen signing up from the likes of Denmark, the United States, Canada, South Africa and Australia to name a few. With a considerable number of ‘Well fans deciding to make the trip home for the Scottish Cup Final, we have decided to make the trip even more memorable by inviting Exiles Club members along to a special “Welcome Home” at Fir Park on the day before the match, including a tour of the stadium. We are delighted to announce our special guest for the day will be ‘91 Cup Final hero and Exiles Club Ambassador Ally Maxwell who will be making the long trip home from Arizona for the game! If you are a Well Society Exiles Club member and want to join us on May 18th (1pm-3pm) at Fir Park please drop us an email at: [email protected]

    Potential once in a lifetime opportunity for one Well Society member on the 20th of May... To celebrate becoming the first fan-owned club to reach the Scottish Cup Final, we are entering all Well Society members in an exclusive, money can’t buy, Owners’ Competition. Should the Steelmen bring home the trophy, the winning Society member will be invited to join the team on the open top bus the following day! The winning member will also be presented with an exclusive, signed Scottish Cup Final shirt regardless of the result. If you are not already a Well Society member you can still sign up and be entered in this fantastic draw. All you have to do is visit www.thewellsociety.co.uk/pledge and select your pledge amount by Friday 18th May at 12pm. The draw will take place at 3pm on Friday 18th May! Good luck and thank you for all your support
  9. Turnbull for me, edging it from Campbell. So much composure and confidence, and his spreading of the play and technical ability was integral in the second half. Delivery for Bowman's goal was fantastic too, especially when we've spent the entire season witnessing dreadful set pieces. Special mentions to Carson, McHugh & Bowman too.
  10. Enjoyed last night's second half. The first forty-five was a bit of a non-event for us - we struggled to cope early on with Thistle's front three and took a good 20-25 minutes to grow into the game. Bar a flurry of crosses and corners into the box, we didn't do much, and had to rely on Carson looking back to himself (after Saturday) with some smart saves. Second half was a different story though, credit to Robinson for changing the shape from our usual line-up to the diamond as it worked a treat. Just watched the BBC highlights and, although Thistle undoubtedly created more chances and we had to ride our luck a little late on as they threw everyone forward, they make it look like we were under the cosh for 90 minutes. That certainly wasn't the case in the second half, I'd say we edged it as the better team, looked dangerous on the break, killed the game when required, and overall put in a very decent - not fantastic - but very decent second-half performance. Stand outs for me were Carson looking confident and commanding again after Saturday, Cadden who looked far better when he went centrally later on in the game, McHugh who - despite continuing his season of misplaced passes - put in some superb challenges in the middle of the park, and Bowman who ran himself into the ground, gave the Thistle defence a torrid time, and well deserved his goal. However, the really big mentions have to be for Allan Campbell and David Turnbull. The former put in the kind of performance that we've come to expect now, and the latter was tremendous - his composure and technical ability is obvious and he looked like he'd been in the starting line-up for months. There's something really enjoyable and entertaining about witnessing the Youth Academy lads not just progressing into the first XI, but being the best players on the park - if we're going to be watching those two pairing each other in the middle of the park regularly next season, take my season ticket money now.
  11. Can't really comment on the publicising of the event as it isn't something I've been involved in (it's predominantly the Former Players Club who have been organising & promoting as far as I know). It's been featured on the Well Society website and in the e-mail newsletter last week, but other than that I'm not too sure how it's been publicised. In terms of the AGM, it was discussed at the last meeting and the date will be confirmed with members in the near future. I *think* we're possibly looking at June time but don't quote me on it.
  12. Well Society members may already be aware of this but I've been asked by the organisers to give this a late push online: The Former Players Club & Well Society are hosting a fantastic Nostalgia Night in the Cooper Suite tomorrow evening & there are still tickets available! The event is a 7pm for 7.30pm start & will include footage from 'Well matches from 1950 to 2000. There will also be a short quiz & a number of former 'Well stars will be attending, including some members of the 1991 Scottish Cup winning side. This is an evening that no 'Well fan should miss, particularly with another final on the horizon! Tickets are priced at £10 (including a programme & half-time pie) and can be purchased at the Chapman Office at Fir Park or by calling 01698 338006. All funds raised will go to the Well Society under the "Double Your Money" offer from Les Hutchison. Hope to see you there!
  13. From my understanding of it, we've essentially bought the Ticketmaster software rather than actually letting them sell tickets to our games.
