Four Hull City players make PFA League One team of the year as Barnsley players miss out on Championship XI

FOUR Hull City players -  Callum Elder, Lewie Coyle, George Honeyman and Mallik Wilks - have been named in the PFA League One team of the year but there was no Yorkshire representation in the Championship or League Two sides.

Grant McCann's side earned promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking and claimed the League One title after they finished two points ahead of second-placed Peterborough United.

Striker Wilks ended the season with 21 goals and nine assists across all competitions while Elder provided a goal and 10 assists from defence.

Honeymoon provided the most assists for Hull last season, helping to set up 13 goals while claiming four of his own. Coyle proved an important cog in City's promotion-winning machine, with the defender appearing 34 times in all competitions last season.

Goalkeeper Tim Krul, defenders Max Aarons and Grant Hanley, midfielder Emiliano Buendia, Tottenham loanee Oliver Skipp and striker Teemu Pukki were all voted into the divisional team by their peers.
