Skipper Currie lands armful of awards

It was a day of mixed emotions for Berwick skipper Lee Currie at Shielfield on Saturday.

The midfielder was disappointed as Rangers missed outon the end of season play-offs, but the afternoon had its compensations.

For not only did he score with a trademark free kick, which made him the club’s leading goalscorer for the season - he was also named as the sponsors’ ‘Man of the match,’ and then walked off with no fewer than eight of the club’s ‘Player of the Year’ awards.

Afterwards he said: “It’s nice to be recognised in this way, but it doesn’t make up for the disappointment of not qualifying for the play-offs.”

Currie’s future is now the subject of some hot debate as he is rumoured to be attracting the attention of a number of clubs, who may lure him away during the summer.

“I have wanted to play full-time football ever since I left Hibs,” he said.

“I may or may not get that chance in the coming months, but the fact remains I have had three very good years here at Berwick and if there isn’t an offer on the table to go elsewhere full-time I would be happy to stay, because this is a great little club, where I have been treated very well by everyone.”
