Marion Fellows, MP for Motherwell and Wishaw, has this week said she will be cheering on local team Motherwell FC in this Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final against Celtic in a motion to Parliament.
Shops in Motherwell are attempting to outdo each other with claret and amber displays in their windows including bunting and mannequins adorned in the club’s strip.
Marion has also put up bunting in her office window to wish the team good luck ahead of Saturday’s clash.
In a motion to Parliament, Marion has congratulated the team reaching the final and also the work of the Well Society – the fan organisation that now owns their club.
Commenting, Marion said:
The constituency is already buzzing ahead of Motherwell FC’s appearance in the Scottish Cup Final next weekend. My office is playing its part with bunting in the window to support our Steelmen!
I’m looking forward to the match and here’s hoping the open top bus is making its way through the town the day after the final.
The whole town is behind the team. Come on ye ‘Well!
