POTY awards night winners

Monday 22nd May

Last night the annual St. Johnstone Supporters' Player of the Year awards were held at the Tulloch Institute.

It was a great way to bring the curtain down on another terrific season to be a Saints fan, as those in attendance lauded players for their efforts on the park in 2016/17 which saw the club qualify for European football next season after a fourth place finish.

Chairman Steve Brown and manager Tommy Wright heaped praise on not just the players and staff, but on the crucial role the supporters have played in another successful season at McDiarmid Park.

The manager, when speaking about how the club has proved the critics and doubters wrong in recent seasons, said: "There might be clubs with bigger supports, there might be clubs with bigger finances, but no club has a bigger heart than St. Johnstone."
