Earnie and Kav named in PFA team of the year

Last updated : 27 April 2003 By Michael Morris
Graham Kavanagh has been named as one of the two central midfielders in the PFA team of the year for 2002/03. It's the fifth year in a row the City skipper has been named.

Robert Earnshaw was always a favourite to be in the team with his 30 league goals. Earnie was paired up front with Rob Hulse from promoted Crewe. Champions Wigan were the best represeted team with 4 players including the goalkeeper who was excellent at Ninian Park yesterday.

Congratulations to the City players.
