Four Lincoln players named in PFA League Two Team of the Year
Champions Lincoln make up the backbone of the Professional Footballers’ Association League Two Team of the Year 2019.
Danny Cowley’s side secured the title with a draw against play-off hopefuls Tranmere on Easter Monday.
Defenders Neal Eardley, Jason Shackell and Harry Toffolo all made the XI voted for by their fellow players, along with 15-goal forward John Akinde.
Mansfield have defender Krystian Pearce and Tyler Walker, the on-loan Nottingham Forest striker who has bagged 21 league goals, included as the Stags also hunt down an automatic promotion place.
Bury goalkeeper Joe Murphy is in the PFA selection, joined by midfield duo Danny Mayor and Jay O’Shea.
There are, though, no players included from MK Dons, who remain in the battle for a top-three finish.
Play-off chasing Tranmere have 27-goal forward James Norwood named in the PFA side, while Forest Green midfielder Reece Brown also makes the XI.
The players will be honoured at the PFA’s annual awards ceremony in London on Sunday April 28.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
