Congratulations are in order for captain Kevin Nolan after being voted September's SBOBET Player of the Month with 29.9% of the vote.

Nolan, who was also awarded the same accolade for his performances in August, has continued to inspire the Hammers as they picked up eleven points from six games. He collected his award before kick-off against Arsenal.

September began in style for the former Newcastle United man as he opened the scoring within a minute in the 3-0 Barclays Premier League win over Fulham.

His form continued as the Hammers secured two draws, first away at Norwich City and then at home against Sunderland. Nolan once again came to the rescue against the Black Cats, volleying home past Simon Mignolet in the 90th minute after being thwarted by the Belgian stopper on more than one occasion.

Momo Diame was September's runner up. The combative midfielder has been in impressive form, providing cover for the defence as well as driving forward in a host of energetic performances.

Winston Reid was the third with 19.5% of the vote, with Mark Noble a close fourth on 19.1% of the vote. Jussi Jaaskelainen and Guy Demel wrapped up the voting.
