As a tribute and mark of respect, Motherwell FC can announce the players and officials will adorn strips complete with Phil O'Donnell's embroidered signature on their chest for the rest of the season.
"Uncle Phil" sadly passed away two weeks ago and the football department at the club wanted to have something permanent to remember him by. Working closely with Rennie Keith and Dave Taylor from Provan Sports / The 'Well Shop, the new strips will be worn for the first time against Hearts in the Scottish Cup Fourth Round tie at Tynecastle tomorrow.
Kit controller Alan McDonald spoke on behalf of the whole football department saying, "It's just something the players are doing in tribute to Phil. The idea and whole project was co-ordinated by Rennie at Provan Sport who really took the bull by the horns and got it done.
"It will be exclusive to the first-team kits as it's the team's own tribute. It's something small but sometimes it's the small things that make all the difference. It's on the home and away kits as well as the coach's gear and we'll wear it proudly for the rest of the season."
Please note this embroidery will not be available at the Club Shop!
