Former Shamrock Rovers left-back Enda Stevens has been named in the English Football League's Team of the Season following an outstanding campaign with promotion-chasing Portsmouth.

 

Pompey, managed by former Sligo Rovers boss Paul Cook, remain on course to seal promotion from League Two with an eight-point cushion going into the final five games.

 

The 26-year-old former UCD, St Patrick's Athletic and Aston Villa defender has appeared 41 times this season, scoring once.

 

Stevens is one of only two League Two players in the team (the other being Plymouth Argyle midfielder Sonny Bradley) and the sole representative from the Republic of Ireland.

 

Northern Ireland international right-back Conor McLaughlin is also named following a year that's seen him play in Euro 2016 and help his side compete for a promotion spot to the Championship.
