Nathan Trott’s impressive form recognised with award

Nathan Trott put another feather in his cap after earning the Thistle Award for his outstanding exploits between the posts for French second division side Nancy.

The Bermudian goalkeeper beat out team-mates Shaquil Delos and Edmond Akichi to claim the award for the month of October with just over half of the votes.

Trott produced a stellar display on his return from injury in Nancy’s 2-1 league win at home against EA Guingamp at the Stade Marcel-Picot on October 16, making a brilliant reflex save from point blank range in stoppage time to help secure the points.

Club supporters vote to determine the best Nancy player for the Thistle Award monthly as well as for the season at the end of the championship.

Trott, 22, is on an impressive run of form having not conceded since his award-winning exploits.

He kept clean sheets in Nancy’s 2-0 league win away to Ajaccio at the François-Coty Stadium on October 23 and goalless draw at home to FC Sochaux also in the league on October 30.

Trott, who is under contract with English Premier League side West Ham United, has made a seamless transition since joining Nancy on a season-long loan.

He has long been earmarked as the future first-choice goalkeeper at the East London club and has also drawn high praise from Shaka Hislop, the former West Ham No 1.
