The Northern Ireland Football Writers' Association Player of the Year is one of two association football player-of-the-year awards in Northern Ireland. (The other is the Ulster Footballer of the Year award.) It is awarded by the Northern Ireland Football Writers' Association to the player who is adjudged to have been the best of the season in the IFA Premiership. The award has been presented since the 1969-70 season, when the inaugural winner was Des Dickson of Coleraine. The current holder of the award is Chris Scannell, of Cliftonville. Glenn Ferguson has won the award most often: on three separate occasions.[1]
