Five Wolves players have been voted by their peers into the League One team of the year.
It was confirmed at last night’s annual PFA awards event in London that skipper Samuel Ricketts, keeper Carl Ikeme, defender Danny Batth and midfielders Kevin McDonald and Bakary Sako have all made it into the team of the year.
And Ricketts believes it was not just the five who should be taking the plaudits but the entire squad.
“It has been a tremendous honour to accept this award – for five of our players to be named in the League One team is outstanding – it’s more than any other team in any of the Leagues,” said Ricketts.
“However, I do feel that the players from Wolves that have missed out are unfortunate because, to be frank, we have all played our part and they are as deserving as the rest of us.
“None of the five of us that have accepted awards tonight would have done so without the hard work of our team-mates. I feel very privileged and proud to have captained such a side.”
The full League One team of the year is as follows:
Carl Ikeme (Wolves)
Samuel Ricketts (Wolves)
Danny Batth (Wolves)
Harry Maguire (Sheffield United)
Jake Bidwell (Brentford)
Ben Pringle (Rotherham)
Kevin McDonald (Wolves)
Adam Forshaw (Brentford)
Bakary Sako (Wolves)
Britt Assombalonga (Peterborough)
Callum Wilson (Coventry)
