It’s the time of year for the St Andrews Berwick Rangers Supporters to start thinking about who we are going to present with an award this season. It’s been a very tough season and as I’m writing this we are 2 points off the bottom spot. Albion Rovers who currently occupy that spot are playing their game in hand tonight against Cowdenbeath. Albion have had a run of form lately with a draw and 2 wins.
There are still a couple of contenders for an award however. As disastrous as the season has been so far and could turn out even worse there are still committed players trying to keep us in the league.
Our award is usually for outstanding performance, this gives us scope for an individual game or action and to recognise a player who may not pick up an award otherwise.
Steven Thomson was given this award for his stunning goal against Cowdenbeath in January. It was an away game in the driving rain and a shot was unleashed from about 35-40 yards that rocketed into the net. An absolute cracker. Unfortunately it wasn’t captured on film but was witness by David Letham and his father who felt it was a contender for the award.
The award for season 2016/17 was awarded to Sean Brennan. He has done very well since stepping in to cover injuries and had an outstanding game away to Forfar. The Forfar game was attended by David Letham, his Brother and Father and all were impresssed by Sean who has continued to maintain good form.
