Motherwell, for the first time in 40 years, have managed to clear all of their external debt.

A payment of £80,000 has been made to five individuals following the sale of James Scott to Hull City. The new Tigers forward’s deal was worth seven figures and the Well have once again profited on a talent.

The Fir Park club have managed to clear £2 million worth of debt over the last three years. It’s a big boost for the club as it’ll mean for the first time since 1980, there will be no lingering payments due to external parties from the Steelmen.

Yet another positive in what has been a fruitful campaign for them, Stephen Robinson’s side are currently battling for a European spot. Currently, they sit third in the league.

The Well are also two home games away from Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden. Should they beat St Mirren at home in a last 16 replay, Motherwell will progress to the quarter finals, where they will face Aberdeen or Kilmarnock for a spot in the final four.
