Creetown had a successful night at the awards with manager Alistair Herries coming second in the Manager of the Year vote behind Rab Cameron of St Cuthbert Wanderers. The Ferry also saw their captain Andrew Houston and midfielder Ben Herries named in the Team of the Year as the club’s chairman, Eric Houston, received the Long Service Award for his 50 years of involvement in the League as a player and committee member.

Houston, after being asked for a speech by League secretary Richard Osbourne, went on to explain how proud he was to receive the award before calling the league “a family I’m proud to be a part of”.

Wigtown midfielder Blair Dougan was also named in a Team of the Season that saw 7 of the league’s 14 teams represented.
