Club career[edit]

Motherwell[edit]

Educated at Gosforth Academy,[2] Hutchinson signed for Motherwell from Wallsend Boys Club in 2007.[3] He later explained joining Motherwell, quoting: "Motherwell gave me the first offer after I left school and I was always going to take it."[4] While growing up, Hutchinson revealed he and his family were Newcastle United supporters and was a season ticket holders. Following his move to Motherwell, his family switched their allegiance from Newcastle United to Motherwell.[5]

He made his professional debut for Motherwell on 16 May 2009 in a league match away to Hamilton Academical. He started in the 3–0 win.[6] After making his debut, Hutchinson signed a new contract, that will keep for two-years.[7]

Hutchinson played in the 2009–10 Europa League second leg match against Flamurtari on 23 July 2009 and scored the sixth goal in an 8–1 win for the Steelmen.[8] Hutchinson made an impressive start of the season when he scored two goals in the first two matches against St. Johnstone and Kilmarnock.[9][10] As a result of his good performance, Hutchinson soon attracted interests from other clubs, but Manager Jim Gannon was determined for the youngsters to stay at the club.[11] Despite the transfer speculation, Hutchinson signed a three-year contract with the club that will keep him until 2012.[12] Hutchinson third goal came in a 6–1 loss against Rangers on 19 December 2009, which turns out to be last his appearance of the season.[13] However, during the season, Manager Gannon left the club and was replaced by Craig Brown. For Hutchinson, he suffered a huge setback in the first team that he only made five appearance in his first season for Motherwell.[5][14][15][16] Hutchinson stated he want to get his career on track because of "the sake of his sanity."[17]

In 2010–11 season, Hutchinson made a recovery from the hamstring injury[18] and made appearance as an unused substitute in the matches, though he remained injured.[19] Hutchinson was due to go on a one-month loan to Second Division team Ayr United in December 2010, to get match-sharpness.[20] However, the bad weather and match postponements led to Motherwell being forced to call off the switch.[21] Hutchinson forced his way back into the first-team in the second half of the 2010–11 season, mainly due to the departure of first-choice centre back Mark Reynolds to Sheffield Wednesday.[22] Hutchinson made his first appearance of the season when Mothewell and Inverness CT drew 0–0 on 16 January 2011.[23] Hutchinson then scored his first goal of the season on 2 April 2011, in a 2–1 win over Aberdeen.[24] After the scoring his first goal of the season, Hutchinson says the goal against Aberdeen was put a last laugh on Craig Brown after being overlooked by him the previous season and the start of the season.[25] He helped Motherwell to the final of the 2011 Scottish Cup but they lost the match 3–0 against Celtic.[26] Hutchinson revealed that he never expected to play in the final that he couldn't get a smile of his face.[27] On 2 June 2011, Hutchinson signed a two-year extension to his contract, tying him to Motherwell until 2014.[3] Hutchinson was later grateful to Brown's successor Stuart McCall for giving a first team opportunity and fill in the boots of Reynolds.[28]

In 2011–12 season, Hutchinson played five games at the start of the season before suffering a Malleolar injury for four weeks when he sustained it during a match against Celtic and had to be substituted in the first half on 9 September 2011. Days later, it would announced that Hutchinson faced a two-months out.[29] He made his return, in a match against Inverness CT on 28 October 2011, where he scored and set up a goal for Keith Lasley, which is a win for Motherwell.[30] Hutchinson became more regularly in the first team and then scored his second goal of the season, in the last 16 of Scottish Cup, in a 6–0 win over Greenock Morton.[31] In May 2012, Hutchinson was awarded Young Player of the Month for April.[32] Hutchinson would make thirty-three appearance in all competitions. Following the retirement of central-defense partner Stephen Craigan, Hutchinson took to realise of not needing Craigan around him, having grown up and taking responsibility.[33] Hutchinson was also named Team of the Season by various journalists of Daily Record.[34]

In 2012–13 season, Hutchinson face a setback that could prevent him playing in the Champions League after injuring his groin in the club's pre-season training and feared he could be out of actions for two months.[35] Hutchinson made his return in a friendly match[36] and then made his Champions League debut against Panathinaikos in the third qualifying round. Motherwell lost 3–0 on aggregate to go out of the competition,[37] but entered the Europa League play-off round. During playing against Panathinaikos in both legs, Hutchinson was fault for committing fouls in dangerous area and was penalised several time.[38] Hutchinson played in the first leg against Spanish side Levante, but was sent-off in the 77th minutes "for hauling down Gekas on the edge of the box as he bore down on goal."[39] The team were again eliminated in the after losing in the return leg. Two days later, Hutchinson was sent-off for the second time in days after a second bookable offence, as Motherwell drew 1–1 with St. Mirren. After the match, Manager McCall says the referee giving Hutchinson a second yellow card was wrong and it left him in tears.[40] In the summer transfer window, Hutchinson was linked with a move to the Championship and McCall turned down a bid for him.[41] Hutchinson scored his first goal of the season, in a 3–3 draw against Aberdeen on 21 September 2012.[42] In a 2–0 loss against Rangers in Scottish Communities League Cup, Hutchinson made a direct clash with Francisco Sandaza, which both players had blood streaming from their wounds, but Hutchinson continue playing after being off the pitch, having a treatments.[43] Then in a 1–0 loss against Hearts on 21 October 2012, Hutchinson injured his hamstring and was later substituted.[44] After the match, Hutchinson would be out for several weeks for his hamstring injury.[45] Hutchinson made his return for the club, on 18 November 2012, in a 5–1 loss against Inverness CT.[46] Since his return, Hutchinson regained his first team place and says he aim for finishing second place.[47] At the end of the 2012–13 season, together with team-mates Darren Randolph, Nicky Law and Michael Higdon, Hutchinson was named in the 2012–13 PFA Scotland Team of the Year.[48]

In 2013–14 season, Hutchinson started his season when he played in both legs, which he was booked in both legs, as Motherwell lose 3–0 to Kuban Krasnodaron aggregate.[49][50] In the opening game of the season, Hutchinson provided an assist for Henri Anier, in a 1–0 win over Hibernian.[51] He then score his first goal of the season, on 19 October 2013, in a 2–1 win over Hearts.[52] A few weeks later, on 3 November 2013, Hutchinson was sent-off after a second bookable, in a 1–0 win over Hibernian.[53] In a match against Aberdeen on 25 January 2014, Hutchinson was involved in a tackle on Ryan Jack that he was stretched off. This alerted Derek McInnes, suggesting that Hutchinson should have been sent-off, describing as "a poor, reckless challenge."[54] On the last game of the season, Hutchinson helped the club finished second place after beating rival Aberdeen over second place.[55]

With his expiry of his contract at Motherwell, Hutchinson stated he is happy at the club and is less affected of the transfer speculation.[56] In October 2013, McCall made an urgent message for him to sign a new contract.[57] Following a transfer speculation to Rangers, Manager McCall confirmed that Hutchinson will leave the club in the summer, but denies suggestion of Hutchinson joining Rangers.[58] Despite suggestion of him leaving in the summer, McCall, however, believes he refusing to give persuade Hutchinson a new contract.[59]
