“Our season ticket total sits currently at 5,226, far exceeding our record number and with a further increase anticipated before our next home match with Aberdeen.

“A total of 4,784 supporters purchased season tickets for the 2021/22 campaign, surpassing the previous record sales total of 4,488.

“Of that number, 3,732 fans carried their tickets over from 2020/21, with 1,052 others purchasing new.

“Our Well In scheme has further boosted that number, with our staff continuing to process applications with a view to reaching a total of 1,000 distributed free season tickets before our next home match with Aberdeen.”

The game against the Dons this Saturday, KO 3pm, will see fifth placed Motherwell go for a third straight league win as they take on their fourth placed opponents.

They will go into the game boosted by the fact that striker Jordan Roberts – a success last season when he joined on loan from Hearts – has come in on loan again until January.

“Bringing Jordan back to the club was a no brainer,” manager Graham Alexander said. “He had a really good spell last season and we’ve always wanted him to return."
