Italy-based Ghanaian enforcer Bright Addae has been honoured by the Pichio Village Sports Centre and the President of Ascoli for his role in supporting the needy in the society through his Bright Addae Foundation.
The versatile midfielder was given the “Ascoli De Vivera” as an honorary award whiles his team mate Amato Cicerti received the Siamo Ascoli Award.
The pair played varying roles in their various societies with Bright Addae supporting a number of projects in his native Ghana.
A statement from Ascoli Picchio highlighted the contribution of the two players outside the pitch as they continue to give back to the society.
“For having shown, through their commitment, respect and love for the city of Ascoli Piceno”, part of their citation reads.
Addae remains an integral figure in the set up of Ascoli Picchio and has played a chunk of the game time in the current season despite a slow start to the campaign.
He was part of the 2009 FIFA U20 team that won gold in Egypt under Sellas Tetteh.
