George Honeyman helped Hull City return to the Championship at the first time of asking last weekend.

Prudhoe-born Honeyman, who has been one of the standout players in League One this season, helped his side beat rivals Lincoln City 2-1 on Saturday afternoon and ensure the club’s return to the second division of English football.

At time of writing, the Tigers are now 11 points ahead of third placed Lincoln with The Imps only able to get a maximum of nine from their remaining three games.

So far this season, Honeyman has scored three goals and assisted a total of 13 in League One and has regularly been one of the team’s star names alongside strikers Mallik Wilks and Josh Magennis.

Further good news followed for the 26-year-old on Monday, with it being revealed the playmaker has been nominated for the League One Player of the Year award.

The former Sunderland man will go up against Black Cats striker Charlie Wyke and Peterborough United’s Jonson Clarke-Harris for the honour.
