Sam Goodwin

Sam GoodwinSam Goodwin signed for Motherwell from English side, Crystal Palace in 1972, he was a wing half and a most accomplished performer. He had so many cultured performances for the ‘Well before leaving in 1975. In his time with Airdrie he played alongside former ‘Well star, Pat Delaney. He left making over 80 appearances in all competitions and netting twice. Sam served Clydebank for one season before making the move into a coaching role with Albion Rovers.

Perhaps not a record to boast about but Sam Goodwin was the quickest sending off in Motherwell history. He was on the receiving end of a robust challenge from Partick Thistle’s John Hansen in the first minute of a match between the sides, Goodwin’s retaliation to the incident earned himself an early bath. It was later reported in the tabloids that he had actually gotten back to his home before the clock struck 4pm, his wife had just assumed that he hadn’t been selected for the match on that occasion.
