Another season has concluded which can only mean one thing - the polls are open for the 25th annual KUMB.com awards!

Running every year since our first survey in 1997, the KUMB Awards offer the best representation of the fans views, as we give you the opportunity to vote in no less than 12 categories.




This year, the categories featuring in our landmark poll - one marking a quarter-of-a-century of KUMB annual Awards - are as follows:

• Player of the Year
• Young Player of the Year
• Best Signing
• Most Improved Player
• Most Memorable Match (nominees selected by KUMB members)
• Most Memorable Moment (nominees selected by KUMB members)
• Goal of the Season (nominees selected by KUMB members)
• Most Missed
• Best KUMB Writer

• Worst Player of the Year
• Worst Signing
• Hackett of the Year

To cast your votes, simply make your selections from the candidates in each category on our voting form, which you may find here:

https://www.kumb.com/awards_vote.php

The form will take you less than one minute to complete; you can vote in all 12 categories or as few as you wish.

The results of this year's poll will be revealed here on KUMB later this month via our live Awards show, which will be streamed via KUMB's YouTube channel.

All previous winners, dating right back to 1997, may be seen below. For more details on each annual poll, visit the KUMB Awards home page.
