Swans players dominate PFA team

Swansea team promotion celebrations
Swansea have dominated League One in earning promotion this year

Swansea City have five players in the Professional Footballers' Association League One team of the year.

Each year PFA members are asked to select their star performers in each position with the Swans dominating the teamsheet for League One.

In defence their fellow pros voted for Angel Rangel and Garry Monk to make the divisional team.

Midfielders Andy Robinson and Ferrie Bodde also made the side alongside the club's top-scorer Jason Scotland.

The appearance of so many players in the PFA team caps a spectacular year for the club which has been guaranteed promotion to the Championship next year.


The Swans exceeded all expectations this year and with one game still left to play have already amassed a club record 89 points - beating the 85 of John Hollins' 1999-2000 side.

They are also League One's top scorers after having scored 81 goals so far this season and in Scotland they have the division's top-scorer with 23 goals.

The only other Welsh player to find in a place in one of the PFA's divisional teams was Wolves and Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey who was voted as the Championship's top keeper.

PFA League One Team of the Year:
Kieren Westwood (Carlisle), Angel Rangel (Swansea), Garry Monk (Swansea), Danny Livesey (Carlisle), Julian Bennett (Nottm Forest), Andy Robinson (Swansea), Ferrie Bodde (Swansea), Kris Commons (Nottm Forest), Richie Wellens (Doncaster), Jermaine Beckford (Leeds), Jason Scotland (Swansea).
