FORMER IRELAND international Wes Hoolahan has been recognised for his superb season.

The 38-year-old Cambridge player features in the official League Two team of the season, announced today.

The Dubliner was also nominated for Player of the Year, but missed out, with the award going to team-mate Paul Mullin.

The news comes amid a big week for Cambridge — a win over Harrogate Town on Friday will secure promotion to League One.

Hoolahan, who joined the club last July and could have been the second successive Irish player to win the award after Eoin Doyle claimed it last year, has been pivotal to that success, with five goals in 34 appearances.

26-year-old forward Mullin has been similarly influential, with 31 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions this season.
