Winger gets accolade for community work
- Sean Scannell receives PFA Award
- Winger rewarded for impact in the community
- 'Scanz' making the difference in his local area
Sean Scannell’s commitment to making a difference in the local area has been recognised by the Professional Footballers’ Association.
‘Scanz’ has been named Huddersfield Town’s PFA Community Player of the Year for the 2016/17 season due to his commitment to making a difference in the local area.
The London-born winger has become an adopted Yorkshire since joining the Club back in the summer of 2012 and has been given this award after making many appearances across the community during the season.
A regular visitor to the Town Foundation’s ‘Early Kick-Off’ breakfast clubs in recent years, the 26 year-old has also visited other schemes run by Town’s Community Department, such as the regular half-term Soccer Schools.

Town’s Community Head of Football and Sport, Rob Day, commented:
“I’m really happy Sean’s commitment to the local area can get recognised in this manner.
“’Scanz’ considers Huddersfield his second home and is always willing to help us out by appearing at community initiatives. Speaking with him, he understands what an impact footballers can have on youngsters; he felt the same way when footballers visited his school or area down in Croydon. I have no doubt that he’s made a big impact on many children in our area too.”
