Wolecki Black first joined the club in 2018 and led the club to the SWPL2 title. After leaving for a short stint at Celtic, he returned in late 2019, ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Motherwell are second bottom of the eight-team league after seven games, but there will be no relegation this season due to a restructure.

Chief executive Alan Burrows said: “We both felt that this was probably a good time for a change, allowing the club to focus on a new direction, particularly with next season in mind.

“I would like to wish Eddie every success.”
