Gordon, who recently retired as head groundsman at Surrey County Cricket Club’s Kia Oval, was praised for his lifelong commitment to a profession he entered in 1964.
During his 48 years at the Oval, he has worked under revered head groundsmen Bert Lock, Ted Warn and Harry Brind. Gordon became head of the grounds team in 2003.
"Oval pitches have been long renowned for quality, pace and bounce at both county and international level," said a England & Wales Cricket Board spokesman. "He has been rewarded with groundsman of the year trophy six years running."
England & Wales Cricket Board pitches consultant Chris Wood, who presented the award sponsored by Ransomes Jacobsen, called Bill his "colleague, lifelong friend and mentor".
Overall groundsman of the year award was won by Nottingham county cricket club head groundsman at Trent Bridge Steve Birks.
