He was named The Player in the Community at the Burton Albion Players’ Awards and also took the PFA Community Champion Award.
The Albion defender said: “Since I came here four years ago our work in the community and giving something back has always been important. The boys put in a lot of effort throughout the season. We have a schedule of appearances and everyone is willing to contribute.
“This season I have been proud to represent the club’s prostate cancer campaign and we as players get a lot out of putting this work into the community. It was a privilege to get the awards, not only from the club but the PFA as well.
“Prostate cancer is a brilliant cause and I just hope we have helped some people and their families who have faced difficult situations. I was happy to have helped out in some small way.”
Andy Taylor, BACT Head of Community says: “Making an impact in the community is part of this club’s DNA, The Prostate Cancer UK campaign has been a major part of that this year and Damien deserves the awards for all his help and support of what has proved a very successful and important project.”
