Motherwell announce pre-season schedule

Motherwell fans have been given the opportunity for summer 'international' travel with the announcement of three pre-season away games on Wednesday.

Stephen Robinson's side first travel to Northern Ireland to meet Crusaders, then northern England to take on Darlington before concluding the League Cup build-up away to Dunfermline.

The Crusaders tie on June 30 in Belfast serves as a testimonial match for home striker Jordan Owens before Curtis Main and Ryan Bowman return to former club Darlington on July 8. Travelling fans should not this is a Sunday rather than Saturday which could curtail some spirits...

Finally we head to East End Park on July 12 as a final planned test ahead of competitive action starting at home to Edinburgh City five days later.

The club also said a “local game” will take place on July 3 which was likely to be behind closed doors.
