This week’s items…
A product of the Motherwell Youth Academy, Fitzpatrick made his debut appearance for the first-team back in May 2004, but it was nine months later that the youngster would launch himself into the Dossers’ history books. In February 2005, with the Steelmen leading 2-0 going into the last five minutes of the CIS Insurance League Cup semi-final at Easter Road, opponents Hearts responded with a quick-fire double – sending the tie into extra-time and leaving the ‘Well on the verge of snatching defeat from victory. As the added period entered its dying moments and penalties looking likely, young Fitzpatrick would find himself through on goal before slotting the ball coolly past Craig Gordon, sparking wild celebrations in the Motherwell end in the process. Of course, the less said about the actual 2005 League Cup Final the better, but there’s no question that Marc’s goal will remain as a truly memorable moment in the recent history of Motherwell FC. Fitzpatrick would spend another six years at Fir Park, notching up three Scotland-U21 caps in the process, before leaving for Ross County in 2011. Spells with Queen of the South and Greenock Morton would follow, before the Lanark-born midfielder-turned-left-back would find himself at Lanarkshire rivals Airdrieonians, where he would become club captain.
Another product of the Fir Park youth system, Jamie Pollock – like Fitzpatrick before him – made his debut in claret and amber against Celtic, coming off the bench during a 3-2 defeat in 2009. He would, however, find first-team opportunities difficult to come by and, after a loan-spell with Clyde, was released at the end of the 2011-12 season. Pollock would follow his Motherwell departure with spells at East Fife, Pollok, Albion Rovers, Clyde for a second time, and then Gartcairn Juniors. More recently, the midfielder has played amateur football for Colville Park.
This particular jersey is from the 2010-11 season and, although worn by Jamie Pollock, is in fact signed by a number of the squad that would ultimately reached the Scottish Cup Final that year – including Stephen Craigan, John Sutton, Tom Hateley, Keith Lasley, Franny Jeffers and more.
