League One Team of the Year

Also see

Joe Murphy - Scunthorpe United

The former Republic of Ireland Under 21 international has been a rock all season for Scunthorpe as they aim to bounce straight back into the Championship. It looked as though the shot-stopper was on his way from Glanford Park after s summer of speculation but he is still the best goalkeeper in League One and is looking forward to the play-offs with the Iron.

Neal Eardley - Oldham Athletic

The Wales international has enjoyed another impressive season at full back as Oldham have pushed for the play-offs all season. Eardley has already made over 120 appearances for the Latics and made his debut as a 16-year-old full back in 2005.

Jack Hobbs - Leicester City

The 20-year-old has been such a hit at the Walkers Stadium this season that manager Nigel Pearson is reportedly trying to tie up the on-loan Liverpool star on a permanent basis. Hobbs has played over 40 games for the Foxes and been an integral part of their quest for promotion back to the Championship.

Sean O'Hanlon - MK Dons

This no-nonsense centre-half has been one of the main reasons behind MK Dons' attempt to win consecutive promotions. O'Hanlon was signed by Martin Allen for £175,000 from Swindon back in 2006 and has made over 100 appearances for the Dons. The former England Under 20 international is a real powerhouse and is a centre forward's nightmare.

Dean Lewington - MK Dons

Lewington was named n the League Two divisional side last year and he has achieved the same feat this year after another storming campaign. The 24-year-old is MK Dons' longest-serving player and captain and has made over 250 appearances for the club, becoming a fans' favourite in the process.

Fabian Delph - Leeds United

The 19-year-old starlet has made a huge impact with Leeds this season and broken into the England Under 21 squad after catching Stuart Pearce's eye. Delph has already been crowned the Young Player of the Year in the Football League awards and has reportedly been attracting the attention of both Newcastle and Arsenal.

Matt Oakley - Leicester City

The 31-year-old midfielder has been a rock in Leicester's engine room and helped the Foxes set a new club record unbeaten run this season. Oakley has chipped in with crucial goals and been a pivotal player in Leicester's title charge.

Chris Taylor - Oldham Athletic

Joe Royle will be happy that one of his brightest young talents has signed a new contract until 2012 as Oldham look to recreate the glory days under Royle. Taylor has already reached double figures for the season from a wide role and insists he wants to stay at Boundary Park for the foreseeable future.

George Boyd - Peterborough United

Boyd's career goes from strength to strength after only linking up with Posh from non-league Stevenage in January 2007 for £260,000. He was part of the League Two divisional side last year as Peterborough were promoted and is hoping to complete the same double this year as Posh look for a return to the Championship.

Rickie Lambert - Bristol Rovers

The powerful striker joined Bristol Rovers in 2006 from Rochdale and has bagged over half a century of goals for the Pirates in the three seasons since, including 25 league goals this term. The 27-year-old is the subject of constant speculation but gets on with the job in hand and scores on a regular basis.

Matty Fryatt - Leicester City

It has been a season to remember for Fryatt as his goals have helped fire Leicester to promotion and break records along the way. He became the first Leicester player to score 20 goals before Christmas in 42 years and the first in 83 years to hit hat-tricks in successive matches. His partnership with Steve Howard has proved very problematic for defenders.

Bob Godfrey (Bristol Rovers fan) says...

Great team and richly deserved place in it for Rickie Lambert. Maybe if Beckford could stay on the pitch for more games he would he got in. PS For any genuine Rovers fan to say Lambert scores lucky goals and is not very good...well you must have been watching a different player than I was all season.

Whilst Fryatt has had a cracking season, he wouldn't have scored half the amount of goals he did without the foil of Howard, however Howards 13 goals aren't enough to be in this team. Beckford, Cox, Hooper , Mackail-Smith all in with a shout i'd have thought. I have to say the quality of some players in this league from top (Boyd, Mackail-Smith, McLean) right down to the Simon Cox' of Swndon have impressed me loads. Glad too be out of it though. BLUE ARMY.!

Unbelievable, Beckford has scored the same amount as Fryatt and 2 less than Lambert having played 13-15 games fewer. Meaning his ratio is far beyond anyone in the entire football league!! Snodgrass has been Leeds best player, how he isn't in the team baffles me aswell. Whats even funnier is that Scotland keep overlooking Snodgrass!!

How is Simon Cox not in this team? three hat-ricks for a relegation threatened team. Matty fryatt was expected to score goals. He also had more service than Cox at swindon. Who picked this team?

Matthew Crumpton (Leeds United fan) says...

Fantastic centre midfield. I think Delph and Oakley have had cracking season's. Obviously very suprised at Beckford not being picked, but I don't think the football league could have bared to put two Leeds players in their! If Beckford really was out of the question for the team, then I would have chosen Gary Hooper over Lambert any day.

where's Jermaine Beckford!!!? he's had an incredible season! 33 goals in 34 games and he doesn't make the team! unbelievable!!!

James Sadler (Leeds United fan) says...

Good team, but where is Beckford? 33 goals in 34 starts! Cox and Hooper could easily be in there, as could Richard Naylor who as captain and managing the defence has helped turned Leeds' fortunes around since the winter. But what about Robert Snodgrass? I would say Leeds¿ player of the season. 9 goals from midfield and 14 assists - more than any other player in the league. He works his socks off and also has ability, skill and intelligence. Easily a future premiership player.

Geoff Porter (Peterborough United fan) says...

Absolutely delighted to see George Boyd in the side. Amazing player who I think could be the most successful out of all the rest of the team. Missing are Cox and Beckford but who do they replace? Lamber? He has scored a lot of goals for a mediochre team. What about Scunthorpes Hooper? Another possible. League 1, I believe, can provide a SQUAD that could challenge any of the other leagues SQUADS

Matt Hibberd (Leeds United fan) says...

Wheres Beckford, Clearly he has been a class above the rest 33 goals from 34 games, thats a fantastic return rate. What other striker can boast that kind of return rate in any professional league?

Posted 13:19 27th April 2009

Gary Sharkey (Scunthorpe United fan) says...

Got to agree with putting Beckford in there given the ratio, plus the quality of his play/goals is always excitable too, given I saw him first-hand when we had him at Scunny. Cox too given he's scored more, and in a poor team. Even our own Gary Hooper (31) has scored more than those 2!

Antony Lenton (Leeds United fan) says...

How could J Beckford NOT be in the team?? The most prolific stricker in the land!!! Beats me!!! Somehow i think it's because he plays for Leeds.......over the last few seasons everyone seems to be against Leeds....... But it is still a fantastic team maybe i should suggest Beckford on the bench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stef Tyrie (Swindon Town fan) says...

Shocking decision not to have Simon Cox in this team, probably the most valued striker outside the top flight at the moment, scored 30 goals this season, 2 more than Lambert and has 3 hatricks to his name!!!

Liam Docherty (Leicester City fan) says...

Look at this amazing side!! i bet this side could av won the Championship title this season if they were in that league!! shows the class of the lower divisions!! And im glad to see Hobbs, Oakley and Fryatt being recognised for a truely amazing season. Well done guys!!
