James Tomkins has thanked the readers of KUMB.com for naming him as their 2011/12 Player of the Season.
The 23-year-old central defender, who narrowly pipped midfielder Mark Noble to the award said: "I was delighted to be chosen as player of the year by everyone at KUMB.
"Any award and support from our fans is great and very important to all of us as players, as it comes from our supporters who watch us week in week out.
"I will always say it is a team effort and last season was no different, everyone worked hard to get the team back up in the Premier League and it was fantastic we achieved that.
"Our aim was to do that for our fans first and foremost, to say thanks for the incredible support you all give us.
"I have been here since I was a young boy and came through the Academy, so I know a lot of our fans have followed my career as I have made it through to the first team.
"I have always appreciated the support, people coming up to me and wishing me well and wishing me success in the team and it is nice to know that everyone is looking out for you.
"It is great to have won this award and I hope to repay this great support by playing my part in the team this season as we look forward to being back in the Premier League once again. Thank you again for everyone at KUMB for voting for me."
