Both have had fantastic years for the national team.

Good 2019’s for both winners

For McGinn he has cemented himself in Steve Clarke’s Scotland side. His energetic performances in the middle have driven his side on at points, whilst he’s also started contributing on the goal front.

In his last three games McGinn’s got six goals. It’s a great stat and a confidence builder ahead of the Euro 2020 play-offs in March. Cuthbert meanwhile has been nothing short of inspirational for women’s football in Scotland.

She was one of the stars as Scotland made their way into the Women’s World Cup. Their efforts were well received by the whole nation and their achievments over in France helped raise the profile of women’s football in Scotland.

It’s not hard to see why both winners have earned their awards.
