MILLWALL defender Danny Shittu was recognised for his community work at the Football League's annual awards dinner last night.

Shittu picked up the PFA Player in the Community gong in front of over 600 guests at The Brewery in central London.

The Nigerian won the award ahead of Reading's Hope Akpan and Leyton Orient's Elliot Omozusi, who were also nominated.

Shittu said: "It means a lot because it's not something I do to be acknowledged but it shows they appreciate the work you're doing.

"We as footballers make a big difference and I think we forget that sometimes.

"We are such important people in society and we have to do our part in helping the future. It means so much."

Lions youngster Fred Onyedinma was nominated for the Championship Apprentice of the Year Award but lost out to Leeds United's Lewis Cook.
