  14. SPEAKERS ANNOUNCED FOR TESTIMONIAL DINNER The Speakers have now been announced for the Motherwell skipper Stephen Craigan’s Testimonial Dinner on Saturday 27th February. The evening will be hosted by Motherwell Season Ticket holder and host of BBC Scotland’s popular Off The Ball programme, Tam Cowan. He will be supported by BBC colleague and St. Mirren fan Chick Young, and highly rated comedian Gary Little. Gary’s comedy career kicked off in 2003, and soon after, he entered The Stand Comedy Club/Daily Record New Talent Search and was one of seven finalists. Since 2005, Gary has been recognised as an established headline act in clubs throughout Scotland, including The Stand, Edinburgh and Glasgow. In recent years, he has progressed to regular gigs throughout the United Kingdom, including Jongleurs and other respected venues. He has also played this year’s Leicester Comedy Festival (Best of Scotland). Reviewing one of Little’s performances the Daily Record said, ‘Gary Little is a very big man who is not afraid to tackle difficult subjects. Rib tickling if not quite touching’. Next up will be well known BBC Pundit, and colleague of Craigan’s on BBC Sportsound, Chick Young. Young has had 30 years of experience covering the game in Scotland, breaking many exclusives in that time. He is a popular speaker on the after dinner circuit as he shares stories gathered on his travels covering the beautiful game in Scotland. Tam Cowan said, “These are two of the best speakers in Scotland and will have everyone in stitches.” There will also be the chance to bid for a number of top sports prizes including football memorabilia along with a number of fourballs at Scotland’s top golf venues. Stephen Craigan is Motherwell’s most capped player having earned 40 caps for Northern Ireland during his spell at Fir Park, to add to the three he gained during his short spell at Partick Thistle. Stephen was awarded his Testimonial back in March of this year to recognise his 13 years service at the club, across two spells. He was signed by Alex McLeish back in 1995 before being released by Billy Davies after 32 appearances for the club in six years. He helped Partick Thistle to back to back promotions from the Second Division to the Premier Division before Terry Butcher brought him back to Fir Park in the summer of 2003. Since then he has taken his total number of appearances to over 250 for the club, including an appearance at Hampden in the League Cup Final of 2005. Tickets for the dinner at the Strathclyde Hilton, Bellshill are available from the Fir Park ticket office, priced at £50 per head or a table of ten for £500 or twelve for £600.

  15. Are you volunteering? The next one we're set to screen is Accies away...
  16. I'm wi you on this Gav!!!
  17. Great to see this being discussed. I've read all of your comments and would like to answer some of the questions being asked and add my own comments. Yes, there's no sound. The footage is filmed by the Club's own camera man, we don't have a sound man working for us. As for commentry, feel free - could be great fun!! The TVs include the projector screen which is massive" by massive", 2 x 42" flatscreens and one 19" which is the control point. Advertising - every single home game, "Look whats happening a Fir Park" flyers are distributed in the Cooper, Centenary etc as well as at the kiosks. It was advertised on the home page of the official website, it was on the forum. Next time, I'll make sure it's announced during the warm up and at half time. I'll also have it highlighted in the programme. If I'm missing anything let me know and I'll sort it - thanks for the feedback, magic!! Any SPL or Premiership match can be shown (if there is one) before and after we screen our game. To be perfectly honest with you, that's up to the folks that turn up. You can go to any pub in this fine shire and watch whatever you like! What we tried to do today was offer something that NO OTHER PUB IN THE WORLD could offer you today and that was unique to the Cooper Bar. We want to encourage families to come along and I doubt you'd get that anywhere else either - oh, and then there were the free hotdogs we fed everybody today - the people who did turn up thoroughly enjoyed them and that deserves a mention, cooked by the fair hands of myself and Dougie Arnott- okay, so we're nae chefs but we'd nae complaints...hot dogs, onions, mustard or ketchup It's not all about making money, it's about making our Club the hub of our community, making the Cooper a nice friendly place to visit on a Sunday afternoon with your pals or your families. Do you want us to continue with this or should we just let it lie empty on a Sunday because the screen's no' big enough, it wisnae advertised enough (even though you were all reading about it on this very forum).... sometimes folks... you just need to try something different... We did so I suppose it's over to you. Thanks for your interest
  18. It's possible for us to show another match on one of the TVs. I think it's the Arsenal game that's on today so no problem to show it. The bar opens at 1pm, the screening of our match starts at 2pm and the kids are more than welcome - families encouraged. I'd love to have one or two of the players pop in, possibly even the gaffers, just depends on them and their own commitments. I'll make a couple of calls and see if I can find anyone willing to give up some of their time today but canny promise. I'll try and meet wth the gaffer before the next screening for his thoughts on this and let you know how it goes. It's up to us to make a success of it and the more people that turn up for these screenings the better. It's just a bit of fun - you'll no' see it anywhere else on a Sunday so if you fancy a pint the Cooper's the place to be this avvy. Craggs tells me it's the best we've played a' season so I watched a bit of it last night (just to make sure everything's working). Give us a wee bit of support eh? Pound a pint I canny do but the beer's that cheap in the Cooper it's NEARLY free Thanks to Craig and Dave for helping me get rid of that monstrosity of a telly, Sam C for his fabulous technical ability. PS - it's gonnae be great - we win
