WE HAVE already had a huge flood of votes for the Recorder Hammer of the Year, but you still have time to vote if you have finally made up your mind.Everyone who casts their vote over the next few weeks, either by postcard, or online, will be automatically entered into a prize draw, with the winner receiving a West Ham shirt signed by the first team squad.Looking at the votes so far, they are spread far and wide, so your selection could really make the difference by the time we count them all up.So who are the leading contenders for this year’s accolade?Rob Green was the clear winner last season and many fans may think that his solid, dependable performances are enough to put him in the frame once again.But there are plenty of other candidates.Scott Parker’s dominance in midfield was one of the major reasons behind Gianfranco Zola’s success, while Carlton Cole’s best scoring season in his career, also earned him a call up to the England team, and the excellent Matty Upson was a regular in Capello’s side.Perhaps you prefer the budding contributions of Jack Collison or James Tomkins, who have come on leaps and bounds during the season and earned regular places in the starting line-up.The never-ending running and effort of Valon Behrami may have caught your eye, or maybe it was the pace and skill of full back Herita Ilunga, who helped us all forget about the loss of George McCartney.We don’t want to influence you too much, it’s up to you. You can vote for one of those, or maybe somebody else has caught your eye.You can vote for anybody who has played this season - even Craig Bellamy!All you have to do to enter is log on to our website at: www.ilfordrecorder.co.uk and follow the links to cast your vote.Or alternatively you can cast your vote by sending us a postcard to:Sports Desk, Recorder Newspapers, 539 High Road, Ilford, Essex, IG1 1UD, stating your name, address and daytime telephone number.Normal competition rules apply and the Sports Editor’s decision is final.
