PFA Community Champion Award

The PFA Community Champion Award has been awarded to Stanley star Ross Sykes for his commitment to community appearances and participation throughout the 21/22 season.

The defender is not only a star on the pitch, his off the pitch work has been exceptional too. Sykes’ efforts haven’t gone unnoticed as he fully deserved to pick up the award, which is judged by a panel of representatives from both the PFA and Accrington Stanley Community Trust.

His contribution to the community and our initiatives has been unmatched over the last season. Ross is a credit to the club and an exemplary character to look up to. He has been a great role model for the entire community and is a pleasure to have with us.

Martin Fearon, CEO of Accrington Stanley Community Trust, said: “Ross has exceeded expectations and has proven to be a real asset to the community. He has supported a number of our projects throughout the season, helping wherever he can. His commitment is fantastic and we hope his efforts inspire the local people to do the same”.

Once again, congratulations to Ross Sykes on winning the PFA Community Champion Award!
