Lukasz Fabianski has won Pilka Nozna’s Polish Footballer of the Year accolade, West Ham’s official website has confirmed.
The Hammers goalkeeper beat off the competition to scoop the top award, highlighting just how impressive he has been for club and country.
West Ham fans have been thoroughly impressed by Fabianski this season and believe this award is well deserved.
Lukasz Fabianski at West Ham
West Ham signed Fabianski from Swansea City after the Welsh club were relegated last season. The 33-year-old has played in all 24 of West Ham’s games this season and is a front-runner for the Hammer of the Year award.
The ex-Arsenal man has taken Adrian’s place between the sticks and has firmly established himself as West Ham’s first-choice.
Fabianski has made the most saves in the top flight this season, according to the Premier League’s official site, with 92 stops between the sticks.
Polish Footballer of the Year
Fabianski has fought off all competition and won Pilka Nozna’s Polish Footballer of the Year award for his performance over the past 12 months.
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski had won seven awards in a row before Fabianski scooped the top prize this year.
Here are some things West Ham fans are saying about their new fan favourite.

For £8m, Fabianski has been the biggest bargain we have signed for as long as I can remember. Every single week he has been superb and has kept us in games and won us games with his saves. The most assured keeper we have had at West Ham for several seasons. Superb season so far.
