Hot on the heels of his brace against West Bromwich Albion, Hammers striker Andy Carroll has this week scooped another double - the club's SBOBET Player of the Month and Goal of the Month awards.

The big Geordie was a runaway victor in both polls, scooping 42% of the vote for the SBOBET Player of the Month prize, and a whopping 75% on the club's Official Facebook page vote for Goal of the Month.

Carroll saw off competition from second placed Jussi Jaaskelainen and Winston Reid in third to claim the honour of top Hammer for March.

Aside from his double strike against the Baggies, over the course of the month Carroll was also involved in the move for Jack Collison's winning goal at Stoke City, and caused problems for the Chelsea defence.


There could only be one winner for March's Goal of the Month award - Carroll's stunning volley to give the Hammers a 3-0 lead over West Brom on 30 March.

The Liverpool loanee watched James Collins' clipped free kick drift over his shoulder before unleashing an unstoppable shot beyond Ben Foster in the visitors' goal.

It was Carroll's second of the game, in which West Ham triumphed by a 3-1 scoreline, and an overwhelming 75% of the Hammers supporters polled placed it as their number one goal for the month.

Another strike from the same match, Gary O'Neil's curling effort, took second with 15%, while Blair Turgott's hat-trick goal in the Boleyn Ground friendly with a Queens Park Rangers XI took third.
