Premier League Golden Glove

Joe Hart playing football.
Joe Hart has won the most Golden Glove awards, with four.

The Premier League Golden Glove is an annual association football award presented to the goalkeeper who has kept the most clean sheets (when a goalkeeper concedes no goals during a single match) in the Premier League. For sponsorship purposes, it has been referred to as the Barclays Golden Glove since its inception during the 2004–05 season. Originally, the Golden Glove could only be won outright by a single player; should there have been a tie, the goalkeeper with the superior clean sheets-to-games ratio received the award.[1] However, starting in the 2013–14 season, the Golden Glove is shared by goalkeepers with an equal number of clean sheets, regardless of the number of games they played.[2]

The Premier League was founded in 1992, when the clubs of the First Division left The Football League. They established a new commercially independent league to negotiate their own broadcast and sponsorship agreements.[3] In 2005, the Premier League Golden Glove was first awarded, with Petr Čech its inaugural recipient.[4][5] Joe Hart has won the award on four occasions, the most out of all goalkeepers. Hart played for Manchester City in each of his four winning seasons and they are the club that has received the most.[6] Hart's four awards mean English goalkeepers have won the Golden Glove the most, ahead of Spain and the Czech Republic with three. Both Pepe Reina and Hart have won the award in three consecutive seasons, which is the current record for consecutive awards.[5][7]

Čech set the record for matches without conceding a goal in a single season – with 21 – to win the inaugural award in 2005.[4] This feat was equalled by Edwin van der Sar during the 2008–09 season,[8] who also surpassed Čech's previous record of 10 consecutive clean sheets by reaching 14.[9] During his streak, Van der Sar went 1,311 minutes without conceding a goal.[8] In the process, he broke Čech's Premier League record (1,025 minutes),[10] Steve Death's Football League record (1,103 minutes)[11] and the all-time league record in Britain (1,155 minutes) for most consecutive scoreless minutes.[12] Hart, the current recipient of the award, conceded no goals in 14 matches during the 2014–15 season, the lowest total to have won the award.
