Headline Makers Revisited – Season 2007-2008

Postal United AFC announced Paul Freeman as their Player of the Year, and Gary Hughes was voted Players’ Player of the Year, writes Tom Scott.

United finished 7th in the Scottish Amateur League Premier Division after winning Division One promotion during the 2006-2007 campaign.

Meanwhile, Templeton Albert striker Craig Heggie dominated the club’s Player of the Year awards night.

The function, held at the St Rollox Bowling Club, saw Heggie share Albert’s Player of the Year vote with Alastair Rushford.

However, Templeton’s front man was named Top Goalscorer, Player’s Player of the Year, and Supporters Player of the Year.

Templeton Albert won the League Cup and a second consecutive Greater Glasgow Premier AFL Championship before leaving for the Scottish Amateur League in 2008-2009.

Templeton Albert celebrated a successful season with a top-class Player of the Year presentation, writes Tom Scott. Stephen McDevitt landed a memorable double by winning the Club Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards.

Operating in a key midfield role, McDevitt, who would soon be leaving for pastures new, enjoyed an outstanding season at Albert.

Striker Eddie Dearie finished Top Goalscorer.

Club spokesman Gordon Neil said:. “We had a real family atmosphere going even before our Management team of Jim Anderson, Billy Carmichael and Willie Malone presented awards on the night.

“The squad won the Second Division Championship in some style, and we also had good runs in both the Scottish Amateur Cup and West of Scotland Amateur Cup.”

“New players have been tried out to replace the likes of McDevitt, Mulligan and Gallagher, who have signed for other club.”
