Burton Albion's Darren Moore has won the PFA Player in the Community Award at the 2011 Football League Awards.
Moore received the award at the gala ceremony at The Brewery, London, on Sunday evening in front of guests from clubs, sponsors and the football industry.
For this award clubs were asked to nominate one player from their first-team squad that they felt had played the most significant part in supporting the Club's community programme during the 2010 calendar year. In selecting an overall winner, the judges were looking to recognise the player whose involvement in the community has gone above and beyond that which would normally be expected, either across a broad range of community programmes or in support of one particular activity.
On winning the award, Moore said, "Footballers are doing a lot of great work in the community and to be nominated was fantastic, to then win it was unbelievable. We don't do it for recognition, we do it for the enjoyment that we can bring to all areas of the community. I am almost lost for words to have won an award for something that I enjoy doing very much."
One of the judges on the panel, Graeme Murty, stated Darren was, "Rightly a strong candidate given the warmth of his personality. The fact that Darren cares shines through in everything he does - he is a driving force in the community scheme."
