Winston Reid has been crowned 2012/13 Hammer of the Year sponsored by Alpari (UK).

The defender rounded off an outstanding campaign by collecting the prestigious award, as voted for by West Ham United supporters.

Reid collected his prize from Alpari (UK) Chief Commercial Officer Mushegh Tovmasyan and Chief Marketing Officer Dave Hodge at the Club's fifth annual Player Awards Dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane.

The 24-year-old 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," said Reid. "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!"

Central defender Reid has been a model of consistency in the heart of the Hammers' defence this term, starting 34 of the Club's 36 Barclays Premier League fixtures to date and notching in the 3-0 Boleyn Ground victory over Fulham in September.

As part of the back four for ten of the Hammers' eleven clean sheets this season, Reid has played a central role to helping Sam Allardyce's men not only establish themselves back in the top flight, but push for a top half finish.

Resolute displays against the likes of Manchester City, who left E13 without being able to score, and Chelsea, who were defeated 3-1 at the Boleyn Ground, characterised their strong start to the season, while an equally impressive finish, which has seen West Ham lose just one of their last seven fixtures, means the Hammers can look back on 2012/13 as one of considerable progress.

That applies to Reid too, who is now in his third season with the Club, but started only three league fixtures in their last Premier League campaign.

With 34 starts under his belt this time, there can be no doubting that Reid has earned the right to be crowned Hammer of the Year.
