A college sports development officer is delighted to have received a special guest invitation to one of the biggest events in the English football calendar.

Rose Fraser, Sports Development Officer at East Durham College in Peterlee, will be attending the Professional Footballers’ Association Awards ceremony on Sunday 22nd April at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.

The PFA Awards Ceremony is the night when the country’s football professionals, sports’ VIPs, football industry and media gather to pay tribute to the men that have been nominated as the player of the year and of course to celebrate another year of the beautiful game.

“The invite is in recognition of the tremendous role the College plays in grass roots football. It’s a privilege and an honour to represent East Durham College at these Awards.

“I’m sure it will be a wonderful evening, mixing with the stars of the England team and of course the other Premier League players, so this calls for a very special evening gown – can't wear my East Durham College tracksuit!!” said Rose.

There are two awards presented on the evening, with the players voting for their Player of the Year and the football writers naming their Footballer of the Year – the oldest award of its type in the world.

Manchester City trio David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Joe Hart are among the six nominees for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award. Scott Parker of Tottenham, Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie of Arsenal fill the shortlist.

Aguero is competing with Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Daniel Sturridge, Kyle Walker and Danny Welbeck for the Young Players' prize.
