Arbroath's Gavin Swankie has been named Third Division player of the year by his peers in the PFA Scotland awards.

The 27-year-old midfielder has scored 21 goals this season as the Lichties won their first title and, with it, promotion to Division Two.

Swankie is in his third spell at Gayfield, having started his career with the Angus club.

He went on to play for Dundee and St Johnstone before returning to Arbroath last summer.

Swankie won his award ahead of Stranraer duo Scott Agnew and Armand One, plus Queen's Park's Ricky Little.
