Breaking: Eddie Wolecki Black steps down as Motherwell manager

"He achieved everything we asked him to and more" says chief executive Alan Burrows

Eddie Wolecki Black has stepped down as Motherwell manager four days before the return of the SWPL season.

Chief executive Alan Burrows confirmed the news, saying that both parties agreed it “was probably time for a change”.

He said that Wolecki Black had “achieved everything we asked him to and more”.

The 56-year-old wishes to concentrate on a college degree.


Assistants Stewart Hall and Willie Kinninurgh will lead the team on an interim basis, with the side hosting Forfar Farmington on Sunday.

“We have made great strides forward to become a top-flight team, and the club has every chance of continuing to build on that in the coming months and years,” Wolecki Black told the Motherwell website.

After winning a quadruple treble at Glasgow City, Wolecki Black first joined Motherwell in 2018 and led the club to promotion to the top flight and helped guide them to Scottish Women’s Cup final.

He returned in 2019 after a spell at Celtic.
