Joe Hardy: B Team Community player of the year

Young striker given award after work in the community

19 May 2018

B Team striker Joe Hardy has been named the Brentford B Team Community Sports Trust’s Player of the Year.

The 19-year-old has been a constant feature at events in the community this season and has also been present in Bee Block at Griffin Park on match days. The former Manchester City academic moved to West London in March 2017 and has been an active supporter of the Community Sports Trust ever since.

Goalkeeper Daniel Bentley picked up this year's Community Champion award, making it two years in a row that he has been thanked for his understanding of the values of the Trust, Club and the boroughs that we deliver in. These awards are given to those who understand that their role is more than that of being a player when turning out for Brentford Football Club's two squads.

Speaking about his award earlier this week, Joe said: "At any level of this Club it is crucial to recognise the importance of the community. We work hard in the areas around the Club so that we can give back some of our time to encourage sport and activity for everyone. We get to meet the fans, we get to engage in local projects and it's important to give our time to that."
