MFC Podcast 2017-18 – Episode 7

Sparra and Jay look back on  Motherwell’s 2-1 victory over Hearts, speculate on the closing of the transfer-window, look back on Sunday’s Shirt Drive at Fir Park and much more.

Kris Jack also joined Sparra to preview the Irn Bru Cup tie with Crusaders to give an insight on the task facing Stephen Craigan’s team at the weekend.

Podcast To Support KitAid

The MFC Podcast are delighted to confirm they will be making a large donation of football kit to ‘KitAid’.

The donation of around 300 shirts follows on from Sunday’s successful shirt drive, which raised £275 for the ‘Well Society’ – a total that will doubled to £550 as part of Les Hutchison’s fantastic ‘Double Your Money’ initiative.

Motherwell fans donated a huge number of football shirts to the cause and football fans and keen collectors made their way to the Centenary Suite at Fir Park to snap up a variety of shirts for a donation to the ‘Well Society’.

KitAid help find a home for your unwanted football kit in Africa and beyond KitAid is a charity set up by, Derrick Williams MBE, who visited Tanzania on a WaterAid supporters’ trip in 1998. Derrick, being a mad footie fan, was amazed at the reception he received from children and adults in remote villages just because he was wearing his favourite football shirt.

After two weeks in Tanzania, a flame was lit in Derrick’s heart and he was on a mission to provide kit and equipment to the bare-footed children playing with footballs made of tied string and plastic bags.

Podcast host, Andy Ross said: “We are delighted at the response to Sunday’s event and afterwards turned our attention to how we could donate the remaining shirts left over.

“KitAid do fantastic work across the world and it’s fantastic to think that the support of the Motherwell fans to the podcast event will make a difference in developing countries across the world.”
