Rovers midfielder Matty Blair has been named as the 2019 Sky Bet League One Community Player of the Year.

Matty has completed more player visits than anyone else over the past three years, and has been recognised for his contribution by winning the award for the second year in a row.

After stepping up his involvement with Fit Rovers, Matty has also continued his work with local mental health charities, including attending regular social cafes in partnership with the EFL’s charity partner Mind.

He said: “Everyone knows how much I enjoy getting involved in different things away from football, and it’s important to help other people where I can as I know I’m in a very privileged position.

“Fit Rovers is something I am really proud to be a part of, hearing people’s stories and speaking to them as they continue their journey is inspiring.

“Mental health has become a big part of my life, and an issue that I have been keen to chat to people about because it is so important in every day life.”

Matty will find out at the EFL awards on Sunday April 7 if he has been successful in his bid to become the overall EFL Community Player of the Year.
