Collins scoops Player of the Month

James Collins has collected the first West Ham United Player of the Month award for his performances in August.

The centre back scooped 44.4% of the fan vote on whufc.com, beating Ravel Morrison (22.8%) and Winston Reid (16.8%) into third.

It was a good month defensively for the Hammers, and Collins was an integral part of that, helping Sam Allardyce's men register clean sheets against Cardiff City and Newcastle United in their opening two Barclays Premier League games.

The shut-outs provided the base for West Ham to collect four points from those fixtures, and their defensive solidity was in evidence again even in defeat to Stoke City, with the only goal of the game coming from a stunning Jermaine Pennant free-kick,

Collins has provided a strong presence at the back, alongside Reid, Guy Demel and Joey O'Brien in a settled back four and the Welshman has taken the accolade.

Second-placed Morrison also enjoyed a super August, making his Premier League debut, and starting for the first time in Hammers colours against Cheltenham Town in the Capital One Cup - a game which also brought the youngster a goal.
