West Ham’s end of season awards winners have been announced and there are very few surprises.

While the season hasn’t ended the way everyone would have hoped, especially after their record breaking start to the campaign, there are still plenty of positives to take away for West Ham. Individually, we’ve seen brilliant player growth, some exciting youth talent and some brilliant signings.

Despite not hosting their usual awards night, the Hammers still gave out all the normal awards following their 3-1 win over Luton.

While Alphonse Areola’s wife was far from happy with it, Jarrod Bowen deservedly won the title of Hammer of the year, largely due to his immense 20 goals across all competitions – something he also won an award for.

Areola did win an award though, namely save of the season for his unbelievable stop against Arsenal. Normally, his world-class season would’ve made him a strong contender for Hammer of the year, but Bowen has just been on a different level.

Another stand out player has been Mohammed Kudus. His first term in the Premier League has been extremely successful and he scooped up the award for the goal of the season. His goal against Freiburg in the historic 5-0 win is one of the greatest solo goals you will ever see and it is no surprise that he won the award.

Vladimir Coufal won the players’ project award, a rather underrated one which is awarded for community work. It is not a trophy that many fans will see the makings off, but it is arguably the best one with it going far beyond anything that can be done on a pitch.

Finally, we have the three youth awards. Ezra Mayers picked up both the Dylan Tombides award and the Doris Bell award for his brilliant season for the U21s. Meanwhile, George Earthy won the Mark Noble Young Hammer of the year award and he more than proved why he was deserving of it by scoring his first Premier League goal this weekend.
