John Sutton will be inducted into the St Mirren Hall of Fame at our Player of the Year Awards Dinner in May.
The former Saints striker scored 45 goals in 144 appearances across two spells in Paisley.
Initially joining the club from Millwall in August 2005, the Englishman played an integral part in our double winning season of 2005/06 – scoring the winner against Hamilton Academical in the Challenge Cup Final as well as netting 14 league goals on our way to winning the old First Division.
Sutton also played a vital role in the club staying in the top-flight the following season - scoring 11 league goals - including two in our famous win over Motherwell at Fir Park in May 2007 as Saints came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 and ensure our survival.
The forward would depart in the summer of 2007 to join English side Wycombe Wanderers, but returned to Paisley for a second time in June 2016.
It was another memorable spell for Sutton as he finished top scorer when Saints completed the 'great escape' in 2016/17 before playing his part in our Championship winning side the following season.
John Sutton celebrates after scoring the winner as Saints came from 2-0 down to beat Motherwell 3-2 at Fir Park in 2007.
