In total, twenty two clubs benefit by receiving the maximum grant in this year’s round of awards. Thirty five clubs ware awarded lesser amounts as a result of assessments made by the SFA’s Football Development Department.

The income will be welcomed by the club and it will contribute to the successful fostering of ‘Well starts for the future.

Another emerging talent has been recognised when Ross Mathie announced the Scotland Under 17 squad that will fly out to Malta on Thursday. James Reilly is the Motherwell representative in the squad that will play Malta twice next week as part of the preparations for the UEFA qualifiers in March.

Well done James – no doubt we’ll be seeing you in the first team soon!
