Irvine Named Community Champion

Jackson Irvine has been named as the Tigers' PFA Community Champion for the 2017/18 season.

The Australian international midfielder was nominated by the Club for his tremendous support in visiting and supporting Community projects.

The PFA are committed to raising the profile and awareness of the extensive work and participation of players in support of community and charitable activities.

PFA Community involvement extends across many areas such as health, education, social inclusion, and equalities, underlining the sport’s commitment to making a positive difference in society.

John Hudson, PFA Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, said: “The PFA believes that players who make that extra effort and contribution during the season should be recognised for their support and involvement in the local community.

“The Award will hopefully raise awareness of the great contribution and importance many of our members attach to their roles off the pitch and we would like to congratulate Jackson on being the Club’s 2017/18 Community Champion Award.”

After being presented with his award at the University of Hull Training Ground, Irvine added: “It’s a really great achievement for myself and something that I’m very proud of because I love doing work with the community, whether it be at a school, hospital or charities that are in partnership with the football club.

“I feel honoured to be recognised for the time I spend outside of football in the community.”
