Hartlepool top best XI
Hartlepool striker Richie Humphreys
Humphreys has rediscovered his goalscoring touch
The Professional Football Association has named its Division Three team of the season for 2002-03.

Promoted Hartlepool have four players in the best XI, with Richie Humphreys showing the kind of goalscoring form which propelled him into the headlines during his time as a teenager at Sheffield Wednesday.


ALAN FETTIS - Hull
The Northern Ireland international goalkeeper has been in inspirational form all season. He started the campaign at York until money troubles kicked in and they were forced to offload him.

CARLOS EDWARDS - Wrexham
This has been the Trinidad & Tobago international's best season since he moved to these shores in 2000. Edwards has been a constant thorn in the opposition side with his rampaging forays down the right flank and has done as much as anyone to lift Wrexham into the play-off zone.

HAVE YOUR SAY

GRAEME LEE - Hartlepool
Last season, Lee was voted Player of the Year by Hartlepool supporters but this year it has been the turn of his fellow peers to vote him as one of the top 11 in the league.

CHRIS WESTWOOD - Hartlepool
It has been another solid campaign for Westwood, who was originally signed by former boss Chris Turner from Telford. He has helped marshal the backline alongside Lee.

PAUL UNDERWOOD - Rushden
Underwood is a former left winger who has taken to the full-back role like a duck to water. A former England semi-professional international, the Diamonds skipper has adapted to life in the league with considerable aplomb.

RICHIE HUMPHREYS - Hartlepool
A former England Under-21 international, Humphreys has kick-started his career since he arrived at Victoria Park. His goal prowess and attacking ability have been a major factor in their success this season.

MARK TINKLER - Hartlepool
The fourth player to be selected from Mike Newell's team has enjoyed another consistent season in the centre of midfield. His tough tackling and will to win have driven Hartlepool forward on many an occasion this year.

PAUL HALL - Rushden
The Diamonds are Hall's eighth club during his career. The Jamaica international has shown superb form this year and has scored a stack of goals from the wide right position.

ALEX RUSSELL - Torquay
Russell arrived at Plainmoor at the start of last season and made an immediate impression. He has continued his good form this season and has become the captain and lynchpin of a very young Torquay outfit.

ANDY MORRELL - Wrexham
Wrexham signed Morrell from Newcastle Blue Star back in 1998, but he has certainly adapted to life in the Football League now. A splendid season has seen him at the top of the goalscoring charts for months and pass the 30-goal for the season.

DAVE KITSON - Cambridge
Another player who was plucked from the non-league scene, Kitson signed from Arlesey in 2001. However, he has adjusted very quickly from being a non-league centre-back to a top-class Third Division forward.
