Gabbidon Hammer of the Year

Danny Gabbidon has been named as the Hammer of the Year for 2005-06, with Marlon Harewood finishing as runner-up.

Since arriving from Cardiff City last summer, the 26-year-old has been a key member of Alan Pardew's team, stepping up to the top flight with ease and appearing in 31 of 36 Premiership matches. His calm and positive influence on the Hammers defence has been a vital factor behind West Ham's success this season. It is no coincidence that the team's most difficult run came when Danny was sidelined with injury at the end of December.

Marlon, meanwhile, finished a close second after an explosive campaign of his own that has seen him fire 16 league and cup goals already this season, including the memorable winner in our FA Cup semi-final victory over Middlesbrough.

A good choice. I think it was harder this year to single out one player than it has been for many seasons. A rare luxury and one I hope continues.
