Matthews handed PFA Community Award

Jasmine Matthews has been named as the PFA Community Champion for Bristol City Women.

Matthews has attended numerous events this season within the community, helping to inspire the younger generation and drive participation within the women’s game in Bristol and the surrounding areas.

The City Women centre-back has also attended a number of Bristol Sport Foundation and Community Trust events at local schools and sports clubs as part of campaigns and holiday camps.

Matthews was presented with her award at Ashton Gate, alongside Joe Bryan – who claimed the PFA Community Champion award for the men’s team. Bryan has since been named PFA Player in the Community 2018 for the EFL.

City Women head coach Willie Kirk says Matthews’ award is recognition for the work the City Women players do within the community.

He said: “Inspiring the young female footballers of the future is something that the Vixens fundamentally believe is their responsibility and our players attend numerous player appearances every month.

“Attending Bristol City Community Trust holiday camps and tournaments, they’ve dedicated their spare time to coaching, playing and engaging with the next generation and Jasmine is just one example of the great work our players do, so this award is seen as a team achievement.”
