The Gilmour Sports Indoor Players of the Year awards were both won by Menzieshill players, goalkeeper David Braithwaite and striker Amy Hyslop.

In contrast, West of Scotland Institute of Sport athlete Amy Hyslop is the scourge of defences - even the top teams -at the other end of the pitch. Her tally of 33 goals this season is a remarkable achievement, given Menzieshill's lowly position in the division.
Asked about her strike rate, Hyslop also paid tribute to others: "The excellent service I get from my team mates, particularly Alison and Sam Sangster, has contributed to the number of goals I've been able to score."
In the very first weekend of the indoor season the 21 year old History student gave an early inkling of her lethal touch with a double hat-trick in the 6-3 win over Clubsport. But the real achievement of Hyslop is that she can do the same against the top sides, as shown by her three goals against Bonagrass Grove, the most they have conceded all season.
In the final match of the season Hyslop scored five in an 8-4 victory over Grange, and thereby secured the top goalscorer award as well.
Curiously Hyslop may never have graced the indoor arena at Bells at all as she explained. "My own team Giffnock no longer play the indoor game, but I wanted to play and Menzieshill made me an offer I couldn't refuse."
