KANE WINS COMMUNITY CHAMPION AWARD

21 June 2021

Full-back honoured for off-the-field impact

Kane Vincent-Young has been named the Club’s PFA Community Champion for the 2020/21 season.

The award is given to the player who has made the most significant contribution in the community throughout the campaign.

Kane went above and beyond in the local area throughout last term.

At the beginning of the first national lockdown in March 2020, the Club launched the Keep the Town Talking campaign which saw players, coaching staff and Portman Road-based staff reach out to elderly season ticket holders.

The campaign was designed as a way to check up on the season ticket holders at a time where the Government had advised over-70s to avoid all social contact and self-isolate for up to four months during the crisis.

Kane built special bonds with a number of his callers, and had regular time slots during the week where he would get in touch with them for a chat.

The 25-year-old still speaks with at least two supporters now – 14 months on from their first phone calls.

Meanwhile, Kane has now agreed to become the Club's Junior Blues ambassador for the 2021/22 season, with the full-back penning a letter to Town's young fans last week.
