THE PFAI Premier Division Team of the Year for 2021 has been announced this morning. 

Voted by the players, the line-up features four representatives from FAI Cup finalists Bohemians — James Talbot, Dawson Devoy, Liam Burt and Georgie Kelly. 

Roberto Lopes, Liam Scales — who is now at Celtic — and Rory Gaffney make up the contingent from Premier Division champions Shamrock Rovers. 

There is no place for Hoops star Daniel Mandroiu, however. 

Derry City (Ronan Boyce), Drogheda United (James Brown), Dundalk (Will Patching, who this week joined Derry) and St Patrick’s Athletic (Chris Forrester) all have one player each in the line-up. 

It was announced earlier this week that Forrester, Kelly and Lopes are nominated for Player of the Year, while Devoy, his Bohs team-mate Ross Tierney (who recently agreed to join Motherwell) and UCD striker Colm Whelan will contest Young Player of the Year. 

Whelan, fellow Students player Liam Kerrigan and Ryan Brennan of Shelbourne are up for First Division Player of the Year.
