Irons! Irons! Irons! What’s that chant that rings out, echoing across the vast open plains of Stratford most weekends? Well, the passionate throngs of West Ham fans of course. Creative Awards were tasked with celebrating the debut season of both manager Manuel Pellegrini and many other star signings for the West Ham Player Awards in conjunction with club sponsor Betway. Taking place at the glitzy Intercontinental hotel the evening witnessed 13 awards in total given out by the East London club.
Fans got the chance to mingle with their heros at the star studded event where players celebrated the achievements of a fairly decent campaign. Much was made of the impact of new signings as well as the efforts of established team members.
The evening saw goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and academy graduate Declan Rice take home 3 awards apiece with Fabianski winning the Betway Hammer of the year, Save of the Season and the Signing of the Season. Young Rice scooped a hat-trick of awards for his sterling efforts this season with the Young Hammer of the Year, the Players’ Player of the Year and the Best Individual Performance for his outstanding game in the London derby against Arsenal at the London Stadium on the 19th of January 2019.
Continuing our work for the cockney boys (following on from previous works including the Lifetime Achievement Awards and Mark Noble 400 Appearances Award) we produced the bespoke awards for the event. The custom made awards took the iconic crossed hammers of the team’s badge as the centrepoint for the design and was hand engraved onto optically clear crystal glass before being packaged in custom made presentation boxes.
