The votes are in and are currently being counted, in the race to win Lewis and Harris football’s most prestigious individual awards – the Senior Player of the Year.

A six-man shortlist has been revealed for the top gong with league champions Carloway and Lochs dominating the shortlist with three nods a piece.

Dan Crossley, Fraser Macleod and Scott Macaulay from Carloway are joined in the running by Lochs’ trio David Macmillan, Donald ‘Nomie’ Macdonald and Jonathon Smith.

Furthermore, the annual prizes for under-21 player of the year and goalkeeper of the year will also be awarded on Saturday night at the end of season bash in the Stornoway Golf club.

In the running for under-21 player of the year are three who are also on the senior list: Jonathon Smith, Dan Crossley and Fraser Macleod. Joining the trio in the running are Robert Jones (Stornoway Athletic) and Micheil Smith (Ness).

Goalkeeper of the year sees five of the season’s top custodians selected. Carloay No.1 David Beaton, United kid gloves Jack Maclennan, Point’s Daniel Maclennan, Aths’ Colin Macritchie and James Macleod – who earned a deal with SPL side Ross County’s junior side also nominated.

Last year’s podium was made up of Scott Maciver (senior player), Dan Crossley (under 21) and David Beaton (Goalkeeper).
