West Ham United defender Winston Reid has been named the club's Player of the Year.

Reid polled a convincing 45 per cent of the vote to fend off strong competition from second placed Jussi Jaaskelainen and Mohamed Diame in third.

"I think every single player tries to do their best for the team and I do the same," Reid told whufc.com. "As an individual it's nice to pick up this award.

"It is quite an accolade to be named Hammer of the Year. Like I said on stage, I have basically been here nearly three years at the Club and I feel at home, so it's nice to feel appreciated. Other players have done well, too, so it's been really good.

"I think every single player believes in themselves and believes they can do well, but you obviously have to have a bit of luck and fortune now and then throughout the season, but when you work hard you get the things you deserve - I'm not saying that in a selfish way because there are a lot of other players who have done well this season.

"I am really pleased with the season that I have had and I'm looking forward to my holiday and then I'm looking forward to the new season!"
