The Well Society have made a generous £5,000 donation to the Motherwell Football Club academy.
The funds, which will go towards supporting a number of areas of the academy, have been gathered as a result of numerous pledges from the society’s members.
Academy director Steven Hammell believes it will go a long way. “It will help us everywhere, we’re just trying to improve every area we can,” he said.
We'”re improving sports science, video analysis, day-to-day equipment and facilities too. We’re just trying to create better players, but also better young people as well.”
Joint chair of the Well Society, Douglas Dickie, says that this donation is an example of the good that can come from fan support, and is urging for more of the same.
“We do support the club, we integrate with the club and are supporting it financially and just giving it any support we can,” he said.
“We now see where this money is going and it’s not going in to a black hole. As owners of the club, this money is going directly in to the club in order to secure the future.”
