Eighteen-years have passed since Tommy Coyne departed Motherwell after nearly five magnificent years with the club.

Over that time the Republic of Ireland international forged the reputation as one of the most popular strikers to have ever played at Fir Park.

The fondness for Coyne amongst the Motherwell support remains although he admits that despite topping Scottish Premier League scoring charts during his first-spell with Dundee and then with Celtic, he had to prove himself all over again following his move to Lanarkshire in November 1993.

I still cringe thinking about it…..

In May 2007 Maurice Malpas’ Motherwell team squandered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to fellow relegation contenders St Mirren at Fir Park.

Defeat for Dunfermline that day ensured that it would be the Pars that were relegated, but it wasn’t enough to avoid the ‘Well fans showing their displeasure at the Saints defeat and the horrendous campaign as a whole.
