League One's longest-serving players; featuring Chris Solly

Chelsea's Willian (R) in action with Swindon Town's Nathan Thompson

We pick an XI with some of League One's longest-serving players; featuring those from Bolton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic and MK Dons.

Goalkeeper Tommy Lee is closing in on a nine-year stay at Chesterfield. In that time, the 31-year-old has played over 360 games for the Spireites. He missed the 2016/7 relegation campaign due to a shoulder injury.

Charlton Athletic right-back Chris Solly has racked up more than 230 appearances after graduating from the youth system. Solly made his league debut in the Addicks’ 4-2 win over Norwich City back in 2009.

32-year-old Nathan Pond has been a Fleetwood Town player since leaving Lancaster City in 2003. Pond’s remarkable stay with the Trawlermen includes six promotions, taking Fleetwood from the North West Counties League to the third tier of English football.

Swindon Town captain Nathan Thompson looks set to end his six-year spell at County Ground this summer. Thompson featured 34 times as the Robins were relegated to League Two.

Dean Lewington is the longest-serving player in the division. The left-back has played over 600 times for Milton Keynes Dons in nearly 15 years as a professional.

Lewington’s MK Dons teammates Daniel Powell and Dean Bowditch have spent 13 years at the club between them. Bowditch joined from Yeovil Town in 2009, while Powell came through the youth ranks.

Mark Davies missed the majority of Bolton Wanderers’ promotion season with a knee ligament injury. The attacking midfielder has made 200 appearances for the Trotters since 2009, including 86 in the Premier League.

Millwall midfielder Nadjim Abdou will be hoping for an opportunity at Wembley this weekend after starting in the play-off win over Scunthorpe United. Abdou arrived at the Den from Plymouth in 2007.

He could line up at Wembley alongside fellow long-serving Millwall man Aiden O’Brien. The striker netted 15 goals this season as he closes in on six years at the club.

Rochdale forward Ian Henderson completes this XI. The 32-year-old signed on a free transfer in 2013 and has gone on to score 75 times.
