Established in 1946, the Central Branch has played a leading role in the formation of The Supporters Association, in which they still actively participate.
The branch is run primarily by an executive of Jim Frame (President) and Christopher Hutton (Treasurer). Membership of the Central Branch costs are £15 for adults and £10 for juniors (under 16’s). It also entitles the holder to additional benefits such as guaranteed briefs for all-ticket matches and an invitation to the annual Player of the Year Dance.
On match day, the bus leaves from The Bentley Hotel (which is located in close proximity to the Heritage Centre) which of course is in the heart of Motherwell near the shopping centre. The Central Branch are happy to arrange to pick up supporters from a variety of points if they are on route to our destination.
