Seamus Conneely has picked up the award for PFA Community Player of the Season for his commitment to community events and appearances throughout the 20/21 season.
The Stanley captain claimed the award, which is judged by a panel of representatives from Accrington Stanley Community Trust and the PFA. There was a bit of a delay presenting the award due to covid restrictions at the end of last season but Seamus finally got his hands on the award this week!
Martin Fearon, CEO of Accrington Stanley Community Trust, said: “Seamus has played a big part in our player community engagement efforts last season. It was a difficult year as we couldn’t do a lot of our traditional visits due to the restrictions but we managed utilize zoom and pre recorded messages in order to bring the players into the community.’
“His commitment to give back to the local community is fantastic and he is a great role model for the young children of the local area. Seamus continues to go above and beyond the traditional role of a professional footballer and it is fantastic to see the positive effects the player visits are having on the local community”.
Well done Seamus and thankyou for all your efforts!
