Monday 11 June 2018 11:20

Tim Ream has been named Fulham’s Player of the Season for 2017/18.

The American defender led the way throughout the process, securing 7,185 votes in the first round of voting.

And the trend continued when he was put up against four of his teammates in the final round, as he ended up with 61 per cent of the votes.

It was a season to remember for everyone associated with the Club, and Ream can look back on the campaign with a real sense of pride, delivering consistent performance after consistent performance.

A ball-playing centre-back, his calmness in possession was critical to the way Slaviša Jokanović sets his team up to play, with many of our attacks beginning with Ream.

Only Ryan Sessegnon started more matches than Ream’s 47, and his average pass success rate of 88.3 per cent was the fifth highest in the Championship, behind Tom Cairney (91.3), Conor Coady (90.3), Alexander Tettey (89.2) and Jacob Butterfield (88.7).

Fulham's top scorer Sessegnon was Ream's closest rival to the award but the 18-year-old could only gain 15 per cent of the vote, while Kevin McDonald wasn't far behind in third taking 13 per cent of the votes cast.
