Mini makes his Mark
|Mark Ramsay - Cowden's player of the year
Midfield dynamo Mark 'Mini' Ramsay was the main man when the annual Blue Brazil awards ceremony was held at the Cross
Guns public house in Cowdenbeath.
A packed audience, including chairman Donald Findlay and manager Jimmy Nicholl, erupted into tremendous applause
when Mini was named as the winner of the coveted "Players Player of the Year" trophy.
He also collected the "Best Individual Performance" award for leading the amazing four-goal comeback at Stirling and
also the "Goal of the Season" trophy for a spectacular overhead kick which was applauded by everyone in the ground at Greenock.
Mini said he was a wee bit miffed he did not collect the "Top Scorer" trophy as well, claiming he was only one goal
behind with several games yet to be played. Still, he was all smiles when the raffle was drawn as he lifted three of
the major prizes in that as well.
Greg Stewart collected the leading scorer prize as well as the "Young Player of the Year" award while veteran assistant
manager Colin Cameron took the Junction Bar "Star Player" trophy.
One of the biggest cheers of the night was reserved for Craig 'Toorie' Winter, picked as the Cowden Supporters Club "Player
of the Year" based on the weekly votes counted at every game, home and away.
Toorie is a previous winner of the fans trophy - a mere 13 years ago - and has been a star man in several different positions
during the season.
Finally, the "Supporter of the Year" award deservedly went to Alex Haddow for his tireless efforts on behalf of the club throughout
a difficult season.
