The Ulster Footballer of the Year is the older of two association football player of the year awards in Northern Ireland. (The other is the Northern Ireland Football Writers' Association award.) It is awarded by Castlereagh Glentoran Supporters' Club to the player who is adjudged by an independent committee to have been the best of the season in the IFA Premiership. The award has been presented since the 1950-51 season, when the inaugural winner was Kevin McGarry of Cliftonville. The current holder of the award is Billy Joe Burns, of Crusaders. Glenn Ferguson has won the award most often: on three separate occasions.
