The club will play their home matches at the NU 2 stadium in Motherwell and have underpinned their ambitions of securing promotion to the GladAfrica Championship by appointing former national team star Mayo as their new head coach.

"Patrick Mayo will be in charge, he is the new head coach," club president Dr Biyana informs  "I think Patrick will motivate these boys. He is a role model and when the players look at him, they see success."

"So no retreat, no surrender," he adds, in reference to the club's slogan. "We are going for the jugular, we want to go to the NFD next season. We are going to go all out, I don't accept mediocrity. We are going all out to win the league and go to the play-offs, and my ambition is to go to the NFD.”
