Can someone confirm the species in this image?

Peterhead, United Kingdom

I had this spider in my room the other night, Checked some 10 spiders in Scotland and one on the list was a False Widow Spider, It looks eerily similar so i thought some expert look would be good to confirm my suspicions


Ps. I did catch the spider in a pringles container and released it outside away from my house.

This looks more like a hacklemesh/lace weaver in the family Amaurobiidae - http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/lace-weaver-spider

Thanks!, this definitely looks like it. I must have been looking at a not reputable source
