Glens hon­our vet­eran Tony

Rutherglen Reformer - - Juniors -

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn util­ity man Tony Fraser scooped two of the top prizes at the club’s end-of-sea­son Player of the Year awards.

The 36-year-old was over the moon when he was called up to col­lect the com­mit­tee and then the player’s player of the year awards in front of a packed Glen­cairn Venue on Satur­day night.

Tony, who is from the New­ton Farm area of Cam­bus­lang, cel­e­brated mak­ing 175 ap­pear­ances for The Glens in Novem­ber last year and has played a piv­otal role in help­ing the side to a high league fin­ish.

Man­ager Wil­lie Har­vey was pleased for the midfielder.

He said: “Tony has been out­stand­ing this sea­son.

“The awards were very well de­served. I don’t think there was any­one in the venue with a dis­sent­ing voice who be­lieved Tony shouldn’t have got the awards.

“He has had a great sea­son and it’s tes­ta­ment to Tony at his age. We have a lot of good play­ers, but he’s man­aged to hold down a place and play so many games.”

Mean­while, the man­age­ment player-of-the-year award went to midfielder Jamie Hamil­ton who has also signed a one-year con­tract ex­ten­sion with the club.

The for­mer Partick This­tle and Les­ma­hagow Ju­niors star has ig­nored talks with other clubs af­ter his man­ager Har­vey revealed there have been a num­ber of sides look­ing to sign the winger for next sea­son.

Striker Jay McKay, who has had a great sea­son since join­ing at the start of the 2016/17 cam­paign, bagged the web­site player-of-the-year prize and the top goal-scorer award.

The club’s un­der-21 side were also in at­ten­dance on the night with their Scot­tish Cup tro­phy.

De­fender Alex Greir was named U-21s player of the year while goal­keeper Chris Trues­dale scooped the play­ers’ player-of-the-year award.

Young player of the year went to Josh McCorry while spe­cial recog­ni­tion went to David Quinn, Euan Con­roy and Craig Young for mak­ing more than 100 ap­pear­ances for the club.
