On behalf of the Scottish Football Supporters Association:

Very chuffed to announce that Marv Stewart has won the SFSA Fan of the Year !

The full list of categories and winners :
(These will also be read out on Off The Ball tomorrow.)

NEWS RELEASE


STEVIE CLARKE PICKS UP FANS’ MANAGER OF THE YEAR AWARD AS SCOTLAND STARS NAMED AS FANS’ PLAYERS OF THE YEAR

• CRAIG THOMPSON NAMED TOP WHISTLER
• DENIS LAW RECEIVES LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
• HIBS FANS NAMED BEST TRAVELLING SUPPORT FOR FIRST TIME
• TYNECASTLE NAMED FANS’ FAVOURITE AWAY GROUND FOR THIRD YEAR IN A ROW

26 January 2019: Stevie Clarke’s outstanding performance as Kilmarnock manager has been acknowledged by Scottish football fans as they name him ‘Manager of the Year’ in the recent Scottish Football Supporters Association’s Fans Awards.

The SFSA’s Fans Awards were run in partnership with GambleAware, the leading charity in the UK committed to reducing gambling-related harms.

Clarke won the manager of the year award ahead of Ayr United’s Ian McCall who was voted into second place, both ahead of Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers who was third.

Scotland captain Andy Robertson was named as the Scottish men’s player of the year with Erin Cuthbert, an outstanding performer in Scotland’s qualification for the Women’s World Cup, named as the women’s player of the year.

James Forrest was runner up in the men’s player of the year award and Jen Beattie runner up in the women’s.

The poll carried out by the SFSA saw nearly 2000 votes cast.

‘Goal of the Year’ went to James Forrest for his fantastic second goal against Albania in Scotland’s’ 4-0 victory in Shkodër. Adam Hammill’s incredible strike for St Mirren from inside his own half in a 2-2 draw with Hibs was voted as the second best.

In an incredibly difficult category, Dunfermline Athletic fan, Marvyn Stewart was chosen as the Fan of the Year award winner. Since the club fell into administration, Marvyn has raised over £50,000 for her club through numerous fundraising efforts.

Joint top goalscorer for the Scotland international side and Manchester Utd legend, Denis Law received a Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his contribution to Scottish football.

A Special Achievement Award has been made to Shelley Kerr, Scotland’s Women’s team manager, for guiding Scotland to the World Cup finals in France.

Scotland’s ‘Best Ref’ was named as Craig Thomson who beat John Beaton and Steven McLean to the title.

Aberdeen fans were knocked off the top spot this year by Hibs fans who were named as the country’s top travelling fans. Hearts fans were named as runners-up with the Dons fans coming third.

St Johnstone’s McDairmid Park was the most family friendly ground closely followed by Ross County’s Global Energy Stadium and St Mirren Park coming third..

Tynecastle retained its position as the ground most away fans like to visit for the third year in a row with Ross County as second favourite, ahead of Kilmarnock’s Rugby Park.

For the third year running, Mascot of the Year went again to Partick Thistle’s Kinsgley.

Michael Stewart retained his top position in the fans’ Best TV/Radio pundit keeping Chris Sutton in second spot. Steven Thompson was recognised for the first time as the fans’ third favourite.

Fans’ favourite sports writing was picked up by popular micro blogger OldFirmFacts1, knocking Tom English into second spot. The cast of the Burst Baw podcast were third.

Alana Watson, Director of The SFSA said: “It’s been another great year for Scottish football fans with so many talking points and wonderful highlights. Having an independent vote by customers of Scottish football, the fans, means that fans get to award who they think have made the biggest impact. Having fans at the heart of decisions made in Scottish football is vital. Well done to all winners and thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.”

Iain Corby from GambleAware said: “Football fans are the lifeblood of the game and it plays a huge part in the lives of people every day. Across Scotland there are over 230,000 people who are classed as either problem gamblers, or at risk of becoming so, and many of these are football fans so we GambleAware is delighted to be a partner in these important awards. This partnership helps us find a way to ensure fans are aware of the risks of gambling, and know they can come to us for free help and confidential advice if they are worried about gambling. By being the SFSA’s charity partner for these prestigious awards, we also hope we can encourage discussion about the relationship between football and betting in Scotland.”

The SFSA is a not-for-profit, members’ body open to everyone, whether they are individuals, supporters groups or affiliates. It currently has over 70,000 members. This is its third Scottish Fan Awards poll.

The SFSA can be found on Twitter @scottishfsa or through #reclaimthegame and on Facebook.

That must be the ultimate accolade - to be voted Fan of the Year by the Scottish Football Supporters' Association! It's like the players voting for their Player of the Year. The club's fans have had some poor publicity in the media recently so it's good to get some good publicity.

Well done, Marv, and very well-deserved!

I never normally vote in things like this but when I seen they had a fan of the year category, I filled the form in just so I could vote for Marvyn. She really does fantastic work for the club, as very much deserves this award
