End of season awards 2012/13

Written by The Away End.

ABERDEEN'S Niall McGinn has capped a stunning season, by winning three of The Away End 2012/13 end of season awards.
 
We asked the team at The Away End  for their nominations, and put the chosen ones to a vote.
 
Over 4,500 fans descended on the site to vote, with McGinn proving to be the main hit.
 
The Northern Irish hitman saw off competition from Leigh Griffiths (right), Michael Higdon and Andrew Shinnie to land the player of the year award, in a season where sports betting fans took the bookies to the cleaners knowing these guys were likely to be on the scoresheet each week.
 
In addition, he also was voted the best signing of the season, and most improved player.
 
Queen of the South were also big winners, with double winning manager Allan Johnston being named manager of the season, and Nicky Clark winning young player of the season.
