Scott completes HOTY hat-trick

Scott Parker has been voted Hammer of the Year - Sponsored by FRP Advisory - for the third straight season by West Ham United supporters.

The peerless midfielder secured the award after a stellar season that saw him make more than 35 first-team appearances and earn a recall to the England team.

He was presented with the prestigious trophy by FRP Advisory's managing partner Jeremy French at the club's End of Season Gala Dinner in the Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London's Park Lane.

Parker becomes just the second player after Sir Trevor Brooking to win the award in three consecutive campaigns. The 30-year-old also joins a select band of Hammers to have been voted as the supporters' player of the year three times or more that also includes the late Bobby Moore OBE, Sir Geoff Hurst, Billy Bonds MBE, Brooking and Alvin Martin.

The No8's award comes just a few days after he was presented with the Football Writers Association Player of the Year award and on the same night that he was voted as Players' Player of the Year - Sponsored by Shore Capital - by his fellow squad members.

To complete a memorable personal evening, Parker also received the the Goal of the Season award - Sponsored by Kinetics - for his outstanding strike in the 3-1 Barclays Premier League victory over Liverpool in February.

England goalkeeper and 2007/08 Hammer of the Year Robert Green was voted as runner-up for the second time - Sponsored by Compass Group - while former Young Hammer of the Year Mark Noble came in third.

Other award winners on the night included Green, Carlton Cole, Jonathan Spector, Freddie Sears and Dylan Tombides.

Green, who missed the event to attend the birth of his first child, was presented with the Save of the Season award - Sponsored by Get Compared - for his outstanding stop from Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale at White Hart Lane in March.
