Motherwell star David Turnbull has been named the 2018/19 Scottish Football Writer’s Young Player of the Year, becoming only the second ‘Well player to win the award.
Turnbull has made 25 league starts, scoring 13 goals and contributing six assists, to become one of Scottish football’s hottest young talents.
The 19-year-old has had a phenomenal season for the Fir Park side and was one of two Motherwell players up for the award with Jake Hastie also nominated.
Turnbull, a lifelong ‘Well fan, picked up his award at a glittering bash in Glasgow last night and ends Kieran Tierney’s run of three consecutive wins.
Winning the award will no doubt lead to some interest in signing the teenage and Motherwell could well end up with a fight on their hands to keep Turnbull at Fir Park.
After already losing Jake Hastie to Rangers, losing Turnbull this summer too would be a hammer blow for Stephen Robinson’s side – even if it lands them a sizeable transfer fee in the process.
With one more game left in the campaign for Motherwell, fans will be hoping they aren’t watching Turnbull’s swansong in claret and amber.
