LFA: Foster Retains Goalkeeper Of The Year Award
Congratulations to Ben Foster, who was last night named Goalkeeper of the Year at the London Football Awards 2020.
The 36-year-old has retained his title, having also won the LFA prize last year.
Foster has kept nine clean sheets in the Premier League so far this season – only Liverpool's Alisson Becker and Burnley's Nick Pope have kept more.
He has also saved numerous points for the Hornets with outstanding saves, such as those to deny Sheffield United's John Fleck and Aston Villa's Wesley.
Foster has already won Watford FC's Sportsbet.io Player of the Month Award for December this season and was nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month and PFA Player of the Month awards in the same month.
The goalkeeper saw off Arsenal's Bernd Leno, Brentford's David Raya, West Ham's Łukasz Fabiański and Crystal Palace's Vicente Guaita to win the LFA trophy this year.
Other winners on the night included Tammy Abraham (Premier League Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year), Thomas Frank (Manager of the Year) and Vivianne Miedema (Women's Player of the Year)
Now in its sixth year, the London Football Awards raise funds for former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter Bob Wilson OBE and his wife Megs’ charity Willow - the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
