Procter Picks up Community Award

9 May 2016

Andy Procter picks up the award for Community Player of the Season after attending a record number of community events throughout the season.

The Stanley player claims the title of Community Player of the Year as judged by a panel of representatives from Accrington Stanley Community Trust.

Procter 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 former reds captain has been one of the most influential senior professionals at the club with over 300 appearances to his name.

Procter also gives 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: "Andy Procter 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. Andy goes beyond the traditional role of a professional footballer and is great at organising other members of the team during community events. Well done Andy!"
