Henley handed PFA Community Champion award

11 May 2016

Adam Henley's efforts within the community during the 2015/16 season have earned him a prestigious award from the PFA.

The Welsh international full back was handed the PFA Community Champion Award prior to Saturday's home game against Reading for the engaging manner in which he has approached a series of events with the public this season.
 
He was deemed to have stood out from his peers at the club thanks to the way he has interracted with fans and well-wishers at a variety of events, including meet and greets at the club's annual visit to the children's ward at Royal Blackburn Hospital and the Blackburn Rovers Disabled Supporters' parties this season.
 
He even took time to play badminton, table tennis and volleyball with children from St Bede's High School as part of the Premier League 4 Sport programme, delivered by Blackburn Rovers Community Trust.
 
The 21-year-old has also been handed another great boost having been named in Chris Coleman's initial training squad for Euro 2016.
