Aiden Stone takes home the Community Player of the Year Award!

The 21-year-old has been given the annual award for his dedication towards supporting Football in the Community in a number of projects over the last 18 months, predominantly championing a healthy eating campaign with partner school Wynndale Primary School.

The young keeper collected his award at the RH Academy following a recent training session and said: “It feels great to receive the award, it’s something that I’ve always felt passionate about, connecting us professional footballers to the community through various projects, and trying to help them have a greater understanding in different aspects of life.

“It’s been difficult without fans this year, you don’t get the same buzz when you’re out on the pitch and I’m sure many feel the same way.

“I’ve always been a player who wants to have that connection with the younger fans and make their experience on match days be the best it can be – by doing these community projects, I hope that has gone some way to help.”

Huge Congratulations Aiden!
