Gulls goalkeeper Robert (Bobby) Olejnik, left back Kevin Nicholson, playmaker Eunan O’Kane and 13-goal midfield captain Lee Mansell are in the divisional team of the year, recognised by their fellow professionals.

Austrian Olejnik, 25, and Nicholson, 31, have been part of a defence that has set a new club record of 20 clean sheets in a season while 29-year-old skipper Mansell (pictured) - United’s longest serving player in the current promotion-chasing squad - has experienced his best season in front of goal.

Talented Irish midfielder O’Kane, 21, is widely recognised as one of League Two’s up-and-coming pass masters.

With two regular season games remaining United are fourth in the table, a point behind third placed Crawley ahead of Saturday's home game against play-off chasing Crewe Alexandra at Plainmoor (1500).

Play-off chasing Cheltenham Town midfielder Marlon Pack, 21, is also named in the League 2 team of the year.
