Thursday night saw Daniel Bentley named the 2017/18 Goalkeeper of the Year, sponsored by Frogmore, at the London Football Awards. The Bees stopper beat off competition from Adrián (West Ham United), Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea), Heurelho Gomes (Watford), and Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur) to land the award. Here's the best of the reaction to Dan's award:

Honoured and humbled to have been voted as the #LFA Goalkeeper of the year. Real privilege to be a part of a great night all for a special cause in the @willowfoundation and topped off by the award being presented by an idol of mine and one of the greats... Bob Wilson. Thank you for all the messages. 🙌🏼
