With a combined age of 399, we pick a League One XI with the oldest players in the division.
Peterborough United’s Mark Tyler (39-years-old) is the oldest goalkeeper to play in League One this season. The ex-Luton Town man kept a clean sheet against MK Dons at the end August.
Adam Chambers (36) and Paul Konchesky (35) are the full-backs for this XI. Chambers, who also plays in a holding midfield role, has spent the last five years at Walsall. Konchesky played the majority of his career in the Premier League and has collected two England caps. The left-back is now a regular in Justin Edinburgh’s Gillingham side.
Ritchie Humphreys (39) and Liam Lawrence (34) are the wingers in this XI. Humphreys has been a Chesterfield player since joining from Hartlepool in 2013. The Sheffield-born man is into the 20th year of his playing career. Lawrence turns 35 next week and is now part of Bristol Rovers’ squad.
At a combined age of 75, AFC Wimbledon’s Dannie Bulman (37) and Rochdale’s Brian Benny Murphy (38) are the central midfielders. The Dons signed Bulman in 2014, and he continues to be an integral part of their side, playing in 18 games so far this season. Player-coach Murphy has spent the last six years with Rochdale.
Jermaine Easter (34) and Marc-Antoine Fortune (35) lead the line. Easter has scored two goals for Bristol Rovers this campaign; while Fortune is yet to find the net for Southend United.
