Scott Parker takes prestigious Awards

Scott Parker has been awarded the prestigious Footballer of the Year award for 2011 by the Football Writers' Association, becoming only the second West Ham player to be honoured after the great Bobby Moore.

Parker took the award ahead of Tottenham star Gareth Bale, who last week was named as the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year, and will receive his award at a dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel on May 12.

The award is recognition for the excellent form that Scott Parker has displayed despite playing for a team in West Ham that has battled against relegation all season. The midfielder has also enjoyed a resurgence in his international prospects with England of late.

Scott Parker, currently suffering from an Achilles injury, is having a series of injections to try and speed up his recovery given that West Ham are fully embroiled in a relegation battle. [Reference]
