Bolton Wanderers will play Motherwell on the 5th September for the testimonial of long serving player Keith Lasley. Lasley, who is the captain of the Steelmen, has played over 400 times in two separate spells for 'Well, scoring 23 goals. 35-year old Lasley has been named Motherwell's player of the season on 3 occasions; 2011, 2012 and 2014.

He joined Motherwell in 1999 from Paisley side Gleniffer Thistle, but had to wait 18 months to make his first team debut. He established himself in the team during the 2001–02 season and played regularly up until leaving the club in the summer of 2004 when he chose to not renew his contract.

Spells at Plymouth and Blackpool followed, before a return to Fir Park in 2006. Lasley was named captain in 2012, taking over from the retiring Stephen Craigan.

Players like Neil Danns and potentially Tim Ream will be away on international duty, so Neil Lennon will most likely use this opportunity to give the fringe players some playing time.

Interestingly, Dan Twardzik, the brother of current Wanderers midfielder Filip Twardzik, is a goalkeeper for Motherwell.

Details on ticket prices will be announced in the near future.
