Motherwell midfielder Sean Goss is aiming to ‘follow in the footsteps’ of players who have come from England and shone at the Scottish Premiership club.

Goss has signed with Graham Alexander’s side, following a stint with Shrewsbury Town. It’s his third spell in Scottish football after time at Rangers and St Johnstone, Goss impressed by the initial impressions of the Fir Park club.

Having old teammates in the dressing room helps too: “It has been really good, it’s a really good club, and even before I came up, everyone had good stuff to say about the club. The lads have been brilliant, helping me to settle in and stuff. It’s always good to know a few of the boys as well before you come, so that helped as well.

“I knew Liam Kelly, I was with him at Rangers, and Liam Grimshaw as well at United, so it was good. I want to settle down here. That was one of the main reasons for coming here, that was the biggest pull as well, because it’s a club that a lot of people have done really well at.”


Goss isn’t aiming for a short-term stay in ML1, he wants to put down roots. The midfielder has watched the likes of Louis Moult and Marvin Johnson secure big moves back to England after time at Motherwell, and he wants to be the next.

He said: “I want to follow in their footsteps, do really well for this club and see where we go from there. I think you have to set targets, you’ve got to be chasing towards a goal, whether it’s personal or in the team. The team ones are the main ones you want to reach and your personal ones will come up as well.

“I wanted to be patient. I wanted to make the right decision, and I feel like it’s a big few years for me now, so hopefully this is the one. I feel like it’s the one. It has been brilliant while I’ve been here and I can’t wait to get going.

“I spoke to the gaffer before I came in, he was talking about coming in, to see how I enjoy it, and the lads have been brilliant with me, it’s a great set-up.”
