Josh Sheehan named in PFA Sky Bet League Two Team of the Year

3 June 2021

Newport County AFC midfielder Josh Sheehan has been named in the PFA Sky Bet League Two Team of the Year.

Sheehan is the sole Exiles representative in the team, which is made up of players from Cheltenham Town, Cambridge United, Bolton Wanderers, Salford City, Tranmere Rovers and Exeter City.

The 26-year-old featured in all bar three of the County's league fixtures this term, scoring three goals and assisting on four occasions, and played a pivotal role in helping County reach the Sky Bet League Two play-off final.

The deep-lying playmaker also played every minute of the Exiles' Emirates FA Cup and Carabao Cup campaigns as they reached the third and fourth round respectively.

It was the furthest stage the club had delved into the Carabao Cup and Sheehan was handed the captaincy for the fourth-round clash against Newcastle United in September.

Sheehan, who had previously represented Wales' age-grade sides, was then rewarded with a call-up to the senior squad for his performances in the first half of the season.

He made his debut in Wales' draw against the United States of America last year and earned his second cap against Mexico in March.
