Two New Faces on the Well Society Board


Gordon Miller and Derek Watson are the two newly-elected board members with the Well Society.

Both were at Fir Park on Friday to mark their election, ahead of their first board meeting on 27 November.

Derek was previously on the Well Society Board. Having left due to work commitments at the time, had no hesitation in putting himself forward to come back on board and believes he can help ensure the younger fans have more of a say in the running of the club.

“Being a fan owned club means everyone should have a voice regardless of where they sit in the stadium,” he said.

“I stand in the last section of the east stand among some very passionate and creative individuals, I’d like to think that my election to the board will give me the opportunity to make their voices heard.

“I’m also now the youngest member of the board and one of my aims is going to to make the Society engaging and attractive to the younger generations of Well fans.”

Gordon Miller, a season ticket holder in the Phil O’Donnell stand, added: ”It’s a huge honour to join The Well Society board. I was born and raised in Motherwell, and our club is the heart of our community.

“Being a community club is more than a slogan. Iur club is owned and operated by our community. So our success is entirely dependent on us – the fans.

“I’m excited about the future of Motherwell FC and at playing a role at delivering a sustainable and successful fan ownership model that will see our club flourish.”
