The vote for our 2006 BBC Sport Photographer of the Year competition has now closed.

And the winner is... Thomas McEldowney, from Manchester.

The 30-year-old's picture of an FC United fan celebrating a goal was the clear winner, with more than 20% of the votes.


"It was a really horrible Monday night in February. FC United were playing Accrington away," said Thomas.

"I went with a friend and we were cursing why we bothered turning up. It was raining and sleeting and absolutely freezing.

"To make it worse, my photos were absolutely terrible when I had them developed.

"It was only when I came back to the photos a month later when I noticed that one. There was something about it."

Our Young Sport Photographer of the Year competition was won by 15-year-old Charlie, from Worthing.

Thomas and Charlie will now get to spend time snapping at Wimbledon in the company of a professional sports photographer.
