On Sunday evening, the Football Writers' Association held a tribute dinner to celebrate the career achievements of our manager, Harry Redknapp, at The Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
The event has been running annually since 1983 as recognition of the excellent contribution to football by some of the game's best-known names.
Previous recipients include the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton, the late Sir Stanley Matthews and our very own Pat Jennings.
Steve Bates, National Chairman of the Football Writers' Association, said: "Harry has been recognised by our organisation because of his outstanding contribution to football both as a player and, latterly, as a manager.
"He has always enjoyed a good rapport with the press who appreciate his professionalism, humour and readiness to give his time for interviews win, lose or draw.
"He follows a long list of distinguished recipients and thoroughly deserves this honour and has been a highly popular choice."
