Liam Kelly has been named Coventry City’s PFA Community Champion for 2020/21!
Chosen by Coventry City, Sky Blues in the Community and the PFA, the accolade celebrates the player who has made an outstanding contribution to the local community.
Kelly and the first-team squad took part in a number of virtual player engagements this year, such as sending video or phone messages to Sky Blues supporters during the first lockdown.
The skipper also supported the EFL’s ‘You Vs Train’ campaign, encouraging safety on the railway and warning youngsters about the dangers of stepping onto the tracks, and the EFL ‘Day of Action’.
He has also supported other charities and campaigns personally and alongside the Sky Blues squad during the last 12 months.
"It’s very pleasing being selected to receive this award. I think the Club do a lot in the community and it’s a vital part of engaging with fans and helping give something back to the Coventry City fans and the Coventry community.
"It’s not just an obligation to go and give something back, it’s something that people should want to do, they should want to help out a city that’s allowed and given them the opportunities to go out there and represent them and it’s a chance for us to give something back and it does mean a lot."
"There are a lot of young children that need someone to look up to in difficult times such as this and they need to see players doing the right thing and when we can we’re coming to visit people in the community and we’re looking to help people out and make a positive difference in people’s lives."
