Cash-strapped Motherwell calls for shirts

The cash-strapped Scottish Premier side wants supporters to hand in extra large long sleeved shirts for matches played during the winter.

In return, the fans will receive an autographed short-sleeved club shirt. On its official website, the Fir Park Club said the fans’ response to the SOS has been ‘terrific’.

One fan, Craig Steele, has donated a shirt that will be worn by Phil O’ Donnell, a recent signing from Sheffield Wednesday.

Motherwell, who lay eighth in the league, went into administration in April 2002.

They are managed by former England captain Terry Butcher.
