Former Bolton Wanderers striker George Newell has become Motherwell’s 11th summer signing,[1] with manager Stephen Robinson “excited” at the addition.

The 20-year-old, the son of former Blackburn Rovers striker Mike, will start off as part of the Scottish Premiership club’s development squad.

“Although he’ll form part of that group initially, I fully expect to see him push for a spot,” said Robinson.
