'Corner on the lookout for future stars
Updated Sunday, 8th July 2012
Fir Park Corner FC are on the lookout for players ahead of the new IFA Scottish League campaign. A bounce game has been arranged for next weekend for anyone wishing to sign up.
The Corner started out in 2001, playing its first game against the then 'Unofficial Motherwell site' on the artificial pitch at Fir Park. Since then the club has gone from strength to strength picking up the IFA Scottish League title and becoming the first Scottish supporters team to win the IFA National League in 2011. Last season saw the team triumph at the inaugural ScotNet tournament at Stirling University, beating off tough competition from across the country.

The team play their matches on Saturday mornings with the 3G pitch at the new Ravenscraig facility playing host to the Corner's home games. The side travel away to play other supporters’ teams and regularly visit Ayr, Cumbernauld, Livingston, Edinburgh, Airdrie and Kirkcaldy. These fixtures tend to tie in with where Motherwell’s ‘big’ team is playing in the afternoon. The IFA National Cup competition has seen the team represent Motherwell in Kiddiminster, Watford, London, West Bromwich and Blackpool over the past couple of years. The end of season trip to Leeds has become a real favourite with our current squad where no less than 64 teams converge on the Yorkshire city from as far afield as France, Italy and Nigeria.
If you are a Motherwell fan looking to get involved in the team for the coming season then come along to the trial match taking place on the Ravenscraig outdoor astroturf pitch on the morning of Saturday 14th July 2012 at 11am. If you are interested in playing in this bounce game or would like more information on the team then you should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 07858 973 623.
