Mr Versatility: Tim’s Reams come true as USA defender named Bolton supporters’ player of the year

It has been an underwhelming season at The Reebok but one man who has stood out on the field is USA international defender Tim Ream.

His performances have been recognised by the Bolton Wanderers Supporter’s Association who have named the defender, sometimes used in midfield, as their player of the year.

Ream, who beat Neil Danns to scoop the award, says while he is delighted with the recognition, it is a team game and the whole squad deserve credit.

“I’m not here to strive for individual glory,” Ream told the club website.

“It’s very humbling but at the end of the day it is a squad game and all of the boys on the roster do a job for the team.

“It’s nice obviously to be recognised by the club’s official supporters association.

“It’s a great feeling knowing that they feel I’ve done a good job this season over the 40 or so game that I’ve played.”

Ream moved to The Reebok in January 2012 from New York Red Bulls and has made over 70 appearances for The Trotters since.

Danns joined Dougie Freedman’s side in September from Leicester City and has made 34 appearances, scoring six goals.
