Elliot Omozusi has been shortlisted for the PFA Player in the Community for a second season in succession.

This award recognises the significant work players have done in supporting their club’s community programme during the last year. 

He has once again been a fantastic ambassador for the club in the community, working with vulnerable groups across East London and sharing his own experiences to help improve lives.

The shortlist has been selected from 72 nominations, with one player nominated from each Football League club.

Omozusi will come up against Hope Akpan of Reading and Danny Shittu of Millwall who were also shortlisted for the Football League Awards 2015, the 10th anniversary of the annual awards ceremony that celebrates on and off pitch excellence across The League’s 72 clubs.

To tie in with the 10th anniversary, this year there are a total of 10 categories with shortlists for four categories announced so far.  The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony at The Brewery, London on Sunday, April  19 2015.

A total of 19 clubs have made the shortlists for the first four categories announced.

Drew Barrand, Marketing Director of The Football League, said: “The Football League Awards 2015 provides not just the opportunity to recognise star performances, both on and off the pitch over the last year, but also the chance to celebrate the last 10 years of the event.

“This is the best year yet in terms of the standard and number of entries so to make the shortlists is a real achievement by the clubs and individuals involved.   We wish all those nominated the best of luck and look forward to a fantastic evening in April when we will announce the winners.”
