Ben Foster is getting credits for his return this season – some say it is his best in a West Bromwich Albion shirt. The Supporters’ club named him as the most outstanding player at an awards evening.

“He’s been superb all season, hasn’t he,” club chief John Homer said.

“He’s so consistent and he’s saved us a lot of points this season. I think it’s been his best season in an Albion shirt because it’s been uninterrupted,” he added. Homer added that Foster has matured into a fine keeper and that he has fought off the competition from Craig Dawson.

The Hawthorns honoured other players on the award night. Hal Robson-Kanu’s long range strike was selected as the Goal of the Season. The Welsh star scored the goal in the away game against the Saints on New Year’s Eve. Nineteen year old Sam Field was awarded the young Player of the Year for his display.

Foster was included in the Football Writer of the Year award. He played in all games in the Premier League this season, keeping six clean sheets. He was exceptional in the game against the Gunners at the Emirates and when West Brom hosted Bournemouth.

He managed to keep a lid on the mistakes. The obvious one would be the draw against Burnley. He recently revealed that he would like to remain at the club for the rest of his career. He was impactful in the club’s rise to the top echelon in the Premier League. With his new deal, he deserves all the credits after such a run.
