James Milner wins FA Cup with Liverpool

The Reds' vice-captain has been given the title for his services to football and charity, having run his own foundation since 2011 on the back of a playing career that has spanned 20 years.

Milner made his professional debut aged just 16 years and 309 days in 2002, which made him the second youngest in Premier League history at the time and he has gone on to make 588 top-flight appearances, which is the fourth highest in the division's 30-year existence.

A total of 199 of those have been for Liverpool and the midfielder has become one of the most influential figures in the squad since his move from Manchester City in 2015 , helping the Reds to a League Cup and FA Cup double this term as they reached 92 Premier League points before being beaten in the Champions League final.

The Liverpool star's charity has raised over £1m for various causes since its inception, such as the NSPCC, Bloodwise, MNDA and Help for Heroes and his work has now been commended in the list, which was released on Wednesday evening.
