Peterhead’s Jamie Stevenson has been short listed as one of four candidates for the PFA Scotland League 1 Player of the Year award.

Stevenson, who joined the Blue Toon at the start of the season from Cowdenbeath, will be up against Brechin’s Alan Trouten, Stranraer’s Willie Gibson and Morton’s Declan McManus - on loan from Aberdeen.

The midfielder made an immediate impact when he scored on his competitive debut against Montrose in a 3-0 Petrofac Training Cup win.

Since then he has gone on to score six more goals in the league and has been an influential figure in Jim McInally’s team this season.

Stevenson’s last recognition from PFA Scotland came in the 2006-07 season when he was named in the old Second Division Team of the Year during his first season at Morton when he was a part of their league winning side.

Peterhead general manager Nat Porter commented saying how good for the club the 30 year old’s nomination was.

“Jamie has been a top class signing for Peterhead.

“He’s had an excellent season and I’m delighted he has been nominated.”

The winner, along with the other three divisions players of the year, will be revealed at a dinner in Glasgow on Sunday May 3.
