Wes Hoolahan had reason to celebrate, despite his club missing out on the promotion playoffs, as the Dubliner was named as Norwich City's player of the year.

Hoolahan, who turns 35 later this month, starred for Norwich yesterday on the final day of the Championship season as he scored twice and claimed two assists in a 4-0 win over QPR.

Norwich's longest-serving player, Hoolahan scored seven goals for the Canaries over the course of the season.

Meanwhile, Preston boss Simon Grayson says he has high hopes for ex-Dundalk pair Andy Boyle and Daryl Horgan next season, once the duo get a well-earned rest.

Boyle started, and Horgan came off the bench, as Preston finished off the season with a 1-0 loss to Wolves but they will now enjoy some time off after a busy 18 months.

"We've had to be careful over these two lads because they haven't had much of a break," says Grayson.

"I've played Andy yesterday because I wanted to see how he was in a 3-5-2 and he's done his job again. They'll both benefit from being at the football club for six months and they'll need the rest, but they'll come back physically and mentally stronger ready for next season as will the other players."
