STEVENAGE captain Mark Roberts is in the running for the PFA Player in the Community award 2013.

The central defender is on a three-strong shortlist for the accolade along with Huddersfield Town’s Alan Lee and Brighton & Hove Albion’s Inigo Calderon.

Stevenage’s head of community Alex Tunbridge, said: “We’re extremely proud that Mark has been shortlisted for this award, he is a credit to the football club and his day to day work and support of the community scheme and the club’s community work is due worthy recognition.

“He has played an instrumental part in inspiring a diverse range of people within the local community and the club wishes him the best of luck in winning the award.”

There are a total of eight award categories which also include accolades such as Family Club of the Year and Community Club of the Year.

The shortlists were drawn up by a panel of judges earlier this month following a stringent assessment process.

Judges included influential members of media, sports industry figures and representatives of The Football League and its partners.
