Shaughnessy makes SPFL team of the year

Monday 5th June

Saints defender Joe Shaughnessy has been named in the SPFL's Scottish Premiership team of the season - the only St. Johnstone player to feature.

The Irishman, who arrived at McDiarmid Park from Aberdeen in the summer of 2015, played in all 46 matches last season, scoring 2 goals. He has also played in the last 66 competitive matches for Tommy Wright's side.

The SPFL website said the following of Joe's inclusion in the team: "Another top-six finish and another European qualification for Tommy Wright's men. Helping them to fourth place was ex-Aberdeen stopper Joe Shaughnessy. The Irishman has gone from strength to strength since making the switch from Perth and over the course of the campaign he was his side's most consistent performer."
