Two Northern Ireland stars make the cut in Championship Team of Season

Two Northern Ireland players have been named in the EFL Championship Team of the Season.

Norwich City left-back Jamal Lewis and Sheffield United midfielder Oliver Norwood made the cut in the division's all-star eleven which was named today (26 March).

Lewis, 21, who made his senior men’s international debut a year ago against South Korea, is one of three Canaries players in the team, alongside fellow defender Max Aarons and striker Teemu Pukki.

Norwich are top of the table and aiming to return to the Premier League after three-year absence.

Norwood, who is joined in the team by United club-mate Billy Sharp, has been a central figure in the Blades’ promotion push this term.

Capped 57 times by his country, the Burnley-born star has helped the Blades reach second spot in the Championship and will be aiming to help continue a fine run of form as Chris Wilder's men bid to secure automatic promotion to the top flight.

The EFL Championship Team of the Season: Darren Randolph (Middlesbrough) - Max Aarons (Norwich City), Liam Cooper (Leeds United), Reece James (Wigan Athletic), Jamal Lewis (Norwich City) - Kalvin Phillips (Leeds United), Oliver Norwood (Sheffield United), Jarrod Bowen (Hull City) - Che Adams (Birmingham City), Teemu Pukki (Norwich City), Billy Sharp (Sheffield United) Manager: Chris Wilder (Sheffield United).
