Parker presented with award

The Hammer of the Year presentation to Scott Parker took just before kick-off against Sunderland.

Parker's third successive award was his most overwhelming, with Robert Green second and Mark Noble in third. Speaking after the game, Kevin Keen summed up the fans' appreciation. He said: "Scott Parker's performances over the last few seasons have been unbelievable."

The players acknowledged and paid tribute to the supporters for their magnificent backing this season after the final whistle, with Parker leading the way. The fans had begun chanting his name as he warmed up in the first half and his second-half arrival off the bench was greeted by the biggest roar of the day.

The Young Hammer of the Year and Doris Bell Award for the most promising Academy youngster were also presented to Freddie Sears and Dylan Tombides respectively in the lead-up to the 3-0 defeat on Sunday.
