Hammer of the Year poll closed

The poll for fans to vote for their Hammer of the Year 2008/09, sponsored by Vantis, has now closed.

With over 10,000 votes cast in total and the top three looking like they could be separated by just 200 votes, this season's award promises to be an extremely close-run affair.

The eventual winner will collect their trophy after Sunday's game with Middlesbrough, alongside the Young Hammer of the Year and the Doris Bell award, both of which are chosen by Academy director Tony Carr. The Goal of the Season and runner-up Hammer of the Year will also be awarded their trophies.

There are still a limited number of tickets remaining for Sunday's fixture. For more information click here.
