Peer vote selects Central Conference's eleven best players this season

Selections for the 2019 USL League Two Central Conference Team of the Season were determined by peer voting. Each League Two club submitted a ballot for multiple players at each position, and the players receiving the most votes were named to the Team of the Season.

Jordan Bell - GK - Des Moines Menace

The Menace finished with the best regular season record (11-0-3) and the league’s best defense, allowing only four goals in 14 games. Bell was a big reason for Des Moines’ success as a dependable presence between the posts.

Leon Jones - Defender - Chicago FC United

Jones was a mainstay in a defense that helped Chicago win the Great Lakes Division, frustrating opposing forwards all season.

James Thomas - Defender - Des Moines Menace

Before they could reach Jordan Bell, opposing attackers had to get past Thomas first, which proved no easy feat. In addition to his solid defensive work, Thomas chipped in at the other end of the pitch as well, scoring two goals and assisting on three.

Reece Hands - Defender - Cincinnati Dutch Lions

Hands logged over 1,000 minutes and appeared in every game but one for the Cincinnati backline. He too did a bit of everything this season, getting forward effectively to tally three goals and three assists.

Jackson Dietrich - Midfielder - Dayton Dutch Lions

Dietrich was a creative presence for Dayton this season, leading the team in assists with four and shots with 29. He bagged two goals as well to add to an impressive stat line.

Jorge Guinovart - Midfielder - Cincinnati Dutch Lions

The Barcelona native was excellent this season, scoring three goals and acting as a key cog in the Cincinnati midfield.

Giuseppe Barone - Midfielder - Flint City Bucks

The Michigan State man justified his ranking as the #2 prospect on the League Two Top Prospects list with some stellar performances, helping the Bucks to a fourth League Two title.

Nicolas Perea - Midfielder - Des Moines Menace

Perea led the Menace in minutes played, and the team relied on him to keep things running smoothly in the middle of the park.

Gerit Wintermeyer - Forward - Chicago FC United

The Wiesbaden, Germany native had an incredible year, leading a potent Chicago offense in just about every statistical category. Wintermeyer scored six goals and assisted on four in 11 games.

Sullivan Oliveira Silva - Forward - Thunder Bay Chill

The Thunder Bay offense ran through Oliveira Silva, who led the team with four assists and scored two goals of his own this season.

Yuri Farkas - Forward - Flint City Bucks

The Brazilian striker spearheaded a dangerous Flint City attack and was instrumental to the Bucks playoff run, constantly causing opposing defenders headaches and converting a clutch penalty kick late in the League Two semi-final against FC Golden State Force.
