Jamaican International footballer Donovan Ricketts has won the Allstate Major League Soccer (MLS) Goalkeeper of the Year honour for the second time in his career.

The 36-year-old Ricketts, who plays for Portland Timbers, first won the award in 2010 while at LA Galaxy.

The award was voted by media, MLS players and MLS club management based on regular season performance.

He was also named to the MLS Best Eleven, his second appearance on the League's all-pro team.

Ricketts, who led Jamaica during the recent CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers, has been capped 100 times for his country.

He was also a member of the historic Jamaica Reggae Boyz squad that participated in the 1998 FIFA World Cup Finals in France.
