Scott Fox

We can confirm that Scott Fox has returned to Motherwell after his loan agreement was cancelled by mutual consent. He was unavailable to face Morton on Saturday anyway as Motherwell had declined permission for him to be cup tied in the Scottish Cup at this stage.

As the rules of both the SFA and SPFL do not allow for the recall of a loan goalkeeper in such circumstances, we are unable to recall either Charlie Cowie or Konar Pietsch from their current loan spells at Gartcairn and St Cuthbert Wanderers respectively. Accordingly we have re-signed our former Reserve goalkeeper Sam Henderson to cover the position for now. Sam was a free agent having most recently played for Petershill and has trained with us in Hamilton at times this season. He will come into the squad for our trip to Morton subject to SFA clearance being granted.
