Trott claims save of season award
Nathan Trott, the West Ham United goalkeeper, put another feather in his cap after earning the Premier League 2 Save of the Season Award.
The Bermudian received the honour for his superb save in a 2-1 win away to Liverpool last September playing for West Ham’s Premier League 2 side.
Trott made a string of saves in the match to help his team bounce back from consecutive defeats against Manchester City and Arsenal in their previous two outings.
Kalam Mooniaruck, West Ham’s head of academy coach development, accepted the award on the player’s behalf during the Premier League Youth Development Conference hosted by Fulham last week.
It is the second time Trott has been chosen for the award having also picked it up in 2017.
West Ham under-23 suffered relegation from their league.
Trott had 12 appearances last season for West Ham, ten in Premier League 2 and twice in the Checkatrade Trophy, and also featured in the East London club’s senior squad on three occasions. He signed an initial 2½-year deal with West Ham in January 2016 which has since been extended twice until 2022.
Trott continues to make regular appearances for the club’s under-23 squad while working with Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.
The 20-year-old looks set to be loaned out next season, according to reports in the English media. As well as playing for West Ham, Trott has represented England at youth level.
He made his England Under-20 debut in September 2017 and was also a member of the England squad that won the 2017 European Under-19 Championship in Georgia.
