The association committee shortlisted  a number of players and each squad member of the seven teams on Arran were able to cast a vote to nominate a player, and junior player of the year.

Winner of the player’s player of the year with 25 votes was Toby Wingham who was also the recipient of the golden boot award for his 24 goals during the season. With 26 votes, Cameron Thomson won the young player of the year award for the second year running.

Ryan Armstrong received the runner up trophy for player of the year and he also shared the joint runner up position for the golden boot – with 21 goals each – with Lewis Kennedy.

Gregor Crichton received the runner-up player of the year and the under 18s golden boot with eight goals.

The 2018 Arran Dairies League was won by a strong Southend team who also wrapped up the season by claiming the double with victory against Brodick in the Copperwheat’s Knockout Cup. Brodick won the Arran Haulage Cup at the start of the season.
