Former Melbourne Victory defender Storey on trial with Motherwell

Ex-Melbourne Victory championship-winning defender Simon Storey is on trial with Scottish club Motherwell.

The 27-year old, who knocked back an offer to remain with Partick Thistle at the end of last season, is keen to win a contract with the Scottish Premier League outfit.

Storey originally joined Partick in August 2007 on a short-term deal but had his contract extended to the end of the 2008/09 season.

He now holds hopes of continuing his career in Scotland with the club where Scott McDonald made a name for himself.
