Motherwell have won a significant financial boost in the shape of a new shirt sponsorship deal.

The two-year-deal with local DIY chain The Untouchables is reported to be worth in the region of 150,000 to the club.

Well were placed into administration at the end of last season and were forced to release 19 players as a result.

Administrator Bryan Jackson said: he was delighted to have found a sponsor to fill the void left by the end of a long-standing sponsorship deal with Motorola.

The Untouchables chief executive Ron Smith said: "We are very pleased to get involved with a football club that has such a great tradition.

"We are a local business and it is good to be able to give something back to the community.

"This arrangement will also give our company a tremendous platform but, most importantly, we are delighted to get involved with a family club which Motherwell undoubtedly is."
