Ladbrokes Championship

Championship Team of the Season

Craig Fowler selects his top XI from the 2018/19 Ladbrokes Championship...

GK - Neil Parry (Alloa Athletic)
The 33-year-old had an excellent campaign between the sticks as part-time Alloa Athletic retained their Championship status without even the need of the play-offs. It was a close contest between Parry, Ross Doohan, Mark Ridgers and Scott Fox but the Alloa keeper made the most TOTW appearances throughout the campaign, which got him the nod.

DC - Coll Donaldson (Inverness CT)
The former Livingston, QPR and Dundee United defender has been superb ever since moving to the Highland capital and continued that form throughout the season for John Robertson’s men.

DC - Andy Graham (Alloa Athletic)
A colossus at the back for Alloa as Jim Goodwin's side secured safety in eighth place - made all the more impressive by Graham starring for the Clackmannanshire side at the age of 35.

DC - Michael Rose (Ayr United)
The Coventry City-bound centre-back continued his improvement this season, especially in the first half of the campaign where he routinely turned in stand-out showings as the newly- promoted side pushed themselves into a title race.

MR - Josh Mullin (Ross County)
Unlucky not to make the PFA Scotland Team of the Season, Mullin was arguably the best player in the best team this season. Double figures in assists and goals across all competition, his attacking spark was a big factor in County standing out from the rest.

MC - Liam Polworth (Inverness CT)
After an inconsistent start to the campaign, the creative No 8 really got going after November, sparkling in the middle of the park as Inverness reached the play-offs and earning himself a summer move to Motherwell.

MC - Jamie Lindsay (Ross County)
Lindsay's energy was a vital piece of County's jigsaw this season as he routinely helped his side win the midfield battle, while also providing a threat around the opposing penalty box.

ML - Michael Gardyne (Ross County)
Gardyne's dynamism and ingenuity helped maintain the threat from the eventual champions in any game, regardless of whether the side as a whole were playing well. He also made his 300th appearance for the Staggies during the campaign.

FC - Billy Mckay (Ross County)
Another County star who didn’t make the PFA Team of the Season, Mckay was the top goalscorer for the title winners, netting 17 league goals and 20 in all competitions before injury ruled him out.

FC - Stephen Dobbie (Queen of the South)
The undoubted star man of the team. If there was any debate as to whether it should be Dobbie or Lawrence Shankland taking that honour, scoring 21 and 24 league goals respectively, he completely obliterated that after returning from injury to put Montrose and Raith Rovers to the sword in the play-offs, ensuring the Doonhamers’ survival in the second tier. Dobbie bagged a staggering 43 goals in all competitions – a club record.

FC - Lawrence Shankland (Ayr United)
The Ayr hitman struck 34 times in all competitions and produced arguably the greatest individual performance of the campaign, tearing Dundee United apart at Tannadice and netting four goals in a 5-0 victory. Had he not suffered an injury in late December, which seemed to stunt the momentum of both he and the team, Ayr might have gone all this way.
