We are pleased to announce that Seamus Conneely has been nominated for the PFA Player in the Community Award. The overall winner will be announced at the EFL awards later in the year.
Conneely has contributed a great deal both on and off the pitch this season. He is the nominated PFA representative for the Football Club and has visited a number of schools and community events in Hyndburn and surrounding areas.
The reds captain is one of the most influential senior professionals at the club and also given a lot back to the community outside of football hours and has been recognised for his contribution to community initiatives over the past year.
Martin Fearon, Community Trust Manager, said: “Seamus is the Ambassador of our Sports Participation programme and has supported a number of different projects throughout the season.
“His commitment is fantastic and is a great role model for the young children of the local area. Seamus goes beyond the traditional role of a professional footballer and is great at organising other members of the team during community events. Well done Seamus!”
