Everton defender Yerry Mina said he was “honoured” to receive the club’s PFA Community Champion award for 2018/19.

As well as joining his team-mates in pledging their ongoing support to the charity, Mina was part of the group that played football with the Down syndrome team and made sure every single one of the participants was involved and celebrated every goal with them enthusiastically.

The Colombia international was recognised for his charity and community effort this season.



Over the course of the season, the Everton defender attended the charity’s annual disability awards which celebrates the achievements of players from each of Everton in the Community’s nine football teams, and he took the time to congratulate and celebrate with each player individually as well as signing autographs and posing for photos with most of the guests in the room.

As part of the charity’s celebrations around World Down Syndrome Day, Mina joined Seamus Coleman inviting the Down syndrome team to Finch Farm for an extra-special coaching session, where they were welcomed like old friends by both Mina and Coleman before a training session and a small sided game with some incredible goal celebrations in front of the participants watching friends and family.

“I am very honoured to win this award,” he said.

The towering defender also played a key part at EitC’s annual showcase event at USM Finch Farm, in October.
