MOTHERWELL FC have gained a new title and it has nothing to do with football.

After the release of their rendition of the Motherwell FC club classic Up the Well, it's not only entered the iTunes top 40 chart - it's knocked Justin Timberlake's hit say something off the 31st spot.

And it's continuing to climb, having already reached number 26 and number three on the alternative chart. 

A campaign is now underway to make it number one, so watch this space.

We told yesterday how players and fans joined forces with local band The Banter Thiefs to recreate the Up the Well anthem, which is played before every match.

Band member Derek Watson believes the song is the perfect example of the community spirit at the club.

He told The Evening Times: "We really wanted to encapsulate what was going on in Motherwell right now and capture the real feel good factor about the club.

"We didn't want to make it about us especially when it really feels like everyone is in this together.

"So, we wanted to make the song as inclusive as possible and appeal to everyone at the club."

The band, who all hail from the town and support the side, approached the club and asked if any players would be interested in getting involved.

Club chiefs jumped at the idea and the quartet of Cedric Kipre, Richart Tait, Chris Cadden, and Liam Grimshaw were the lucky few who joined over 25 fans in lending their vocals to the record.
