Sean Murdoch is Pars Review's Player of the Season for 2016/17, based on ratings out of 10 in every blog match report. Nat Wedderburn, Kallum Higginbotham, Paul McMullan and Lee Ashcroft were placed second through to fifth, in that order, taking total points divided by games started, to give an average points per game total. Sean won most of the individual player awards in recent weeks from Pars supporters clubs, and deservedly has come out top on this blog's ratings. This is the only player award that is based on performances in every game of the season.
Dunfermline played 47 League and Cup games this season, and Pars Review was at every game. Marks out of 10 were given to the starting 11 in every game. Substitute appearances were not rated, or included.
For the purpose of assessing a Player of the Season, only those players who had started a minimum of 50% of all League and Cup games were eligible - enough games to prevent a scenario where, for example, a player with only 5 appearances and who had the highest average points in the squad, being awarded the top player award simply because they had the highest average. This meant that players such as Callum Morris, whose average points per game ratio would have put him in 3rd place, was not eligible as he did not play enough games.
