Danny recognised at Football League Awards 2015

Millwall defender Danny Shittu has won the PFA Player in the Community gong at this year's Football League Awards ceremony.

The 34-year-old, originally nominated alongside Reading's Hope Akpan and Leyton Orient's Elliot Omozusi, was selected as the winner for his outstanding involvement in Millwall Community Trust's various schemes and activities over the past 12 months.

"Danny is someone who doesn't just fulfil obligations when it comes to a player's community work," Millwall chief executive Andy Ambler said.

"He understands and appreciates how much of a role model he is, especially to youngsters, and always enjoys getting involved, whether that is at one of the Community Trust's soccer schools or, for example, a hospital visit.

"He has also stressed the importance of such work to his team-mates, encouraging others to join him at various events.

"Danny is such a superb ambassador to Millwall Football Club and a worthy winner of this fantastic award."

Elsewhere, Lions youngster Fred Onyedinma was nominated for Championship Apprentice of the Year but missed out to Lewis Cook of Leeds United.
