Moore replaced Alan Pardew at the start of April, taking over with the club seven points adrift at the bottom of the table and 10 short of safety with six matches to play.

He drew his first game in charge against fellow strugglers Swansea City before overseeing wins against Manchester United and Newcastle United and a draw with Liverpool.

The 44-year-old said the team’s recent success was down to togetherness.

“I am really delighted,” he told the Premier League website. “It’s been a wonderful joint-effort by everybody here. We’ve just brought some unity here and it’s helped the players put the performances together on the pitch.”

Moore fended off competition from Everton’s Sam Allardyce, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, Crystal Palace’s Roy Hodgson and Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho to win the award.

His West Brom team beat fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in their first match this month on Saturday to lift themselves off the bottom of the table for the first time since January.
