PLAYER OF THE YEAR CONTENDERS
The wing-back has enjoyed another impressive season for the Diamonds. With long-term injuries keeping Ryan Conroy on the sidelines, Stewart was announced as skipper and led the dressing room during the turmoil of the end of the Tom Wotherspoon era. For a defensive player, he has scored five goals this term.
Since his switch from Livingston in January, the striker has quickly earned cult hero status at New Broomfield with his never-say-die attitude and fight up front. With four goals while wearing the famous Diamonds, big things will be expected from the former Hearts man next season.
The young defender has been brought through by Stephen Findlay and Marc Fitzpatrick into first-team contention and has shown he more than deserves consideration. The 17-year-old has shown he is capable down the left flank and as well as being in the running for the player of the year, will be in the running for the young star award.
With a host of loan players coming into the Excelsior Stadium this season, Motherwell kid Jake Hastie has been the most impressive of the batch.
The winger has contributed with both goals and assists and has often been praised by gaffer Stephen Findlay for his willingness to come for extra training sessions and his commitment to the Diamonds.
Mr Versatile, and former product of the youth system, has enjoyed a breakthrough season at the club.
A favourite with the fans, he has been willing to play in any position to plug gaps this term in both the heart of midfield and at centre-back and has acquitted himself well in both positions.
