BOTH Israel's winning entry and the UK's offering at the Eurovision Song Contest have been left behind by Motherwell's Scottish Cup final song.

Up The Well, by The Banter Thiefs, was released today, and has already shot to 18th on the iTunes download charts.

The track is ahead of Toy by Netta and Storm by SuRie. Other notable artists the Motherwell fans are charting above einclude Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake and Cardi B.

The four Motherwell fans recruited the help of Chris Cadden, Liam Grimshaw, Richard Tait, Cedric Kipre, David Turnbull, Barry Maguire and Jordan Armstrong to record their version of Up The Well.

The band, who're hoping to inspire their team to cup final success against Celtic on Saturday, asked supporters to help provide backing vocals.

Band member Derek Watson told our sister paper 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."

Their ambition hasn't been satisfied yet though – the campaign is on to get the track to the top spot.
