American international claims second individual award in a week

Tim Ream has been named as the club’s official Player of the Year for the 2013/14 season.


The American international claimed the annual award after winning 39 percent of fans’ votes in an online poll.

Lukas Jutkiewicz finished runner-up with 19 percent of the votes, whilst Neil Danns round off the top three with 13 percent.

Ream has made a total 44 appearances for Bolton this season, impressing in a number of different positions.

“It’s a really cool feeling to be recognised again by the club’s supporters,” Ream told bwfc.co.uk. “As I said before, it’s nice and humbling knowing that people think you’ve done a good job, but at the end of the day it’s about the squad.

“Personally, the past two years have definitely been a real eye opener. When I was involved last season I was a little unnerved purely by how different the style was to the other leagues I’ve played in.

“There are so many demands in this league and to begin with I probably wasn’t prepared for that, but it definitely gave me motivation coming into this season. 

“I feel settled off the field, and that’s also a big factor whether people believe it or not. I feel happy and am working in a structure and programme that really helps us, as players.”
