1886 Heritage Project


The 1886 Heritage Project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and enabled the Trust to gather and catalogue resources from the history of the club.

Motherwell Football Club has a rich history dating back to 1886, formed from a merger of two local clubs, Alpha and Glencairn.

Since then, the club has won everything on offer at the top end of Scottish football, including the top flight title, the League Cup and the Scottish Cup. Follow the link below for a detailed history of the club through the years.
