Exeter City seemingly love a good ex-Motherwell player. They snapped up another yesterday, signing former Well striker Alex Fisher, the club have confirmed.

He joins a growing list of former Steelmen at the Grecians.

Alex Fisher

We’ll start with the latest St James’ park arrival. The forward joins them from Yeovil Town, who were relegated from the EFL during the 2018/19 campaign.

It followed on from a miserable spell at Motherwell. Having arrived in the summer of 2017 at Fir Park, he was out the door by January. Fisher failed to hit the net in claret and amber.

It wasn’t for the lack of trying, but Motherwell and Fisher just weren’t meant to be. On his day he’s a decent forward.

Ryan Bowman

Some Scottish football fans may remember him as a ‘hammer thrower’, but Well fans know that Bowman was much more than that.

The striker put himself about the forward line, hitting his best form when he struck a deadly partnership with Louis Moult. He left Fir Park in January of this year.

Given how little Motherwell had in the striker department towards the end of last season, perhaps the Well would have liked to have kept the current Exeter forward a bit longer.

Nicky Law

By far the player to have had the most success at Fir Park out of the players mentioned in this article. Law was brilliant for the Steelmen.

He was a creative force in the middle of the park, with excellent passing range and an eye for goal. The attacking force of Law, Jamie Murphy, Henrik Ojamaa, Chris Humphrey and Michael Higdon was one to be feared.

Law played 86 times for Motherwell, including a Champions League appearance with the Steelmen, scoring 13 and assisting on 19 occasions.

Jake Taylor

The Welshman had a less than forgettable spell at Fir Park. Signed on loan from Reading, Taylor never really made his mark at Fir Park.

The midfielder made eight Motherwell appearances in total. He’s enjoyed much more success at St James’ park, making 200 outing in red and white so far.
