Waterford FC have three players named on the PFA First Division Team of the Year, as voted by the players.
Top scorer Ronan Coughlan, Captain Gilles Philips and defender Ryan Burke have all gotten the nod.
The Champions Galway have six players involved.
Coughlan broke the Blues scoring record this season, netting 37 times across League and Cup games. His penalty in the promotion/relegation final proved to be the difference as Keith Long's beat Cork City 2-1 in the decider.
Gilles Philips played 32 games in 2023 for the Blues, captaining the side to promotion at Tallaght Stadium. His headed goal against Cobh Ramblers in the First Division Final secured the result in Turners Cross, sending the Blues through to the clash with Cork City.
While defender Ryan Burke played in all but 3 league games - two of the games he didn't play in were due to suspension, while he did not make the squad for the second week of the season. He also chipped in with three goals, including even assists.
Coughlan is also in the running for first-division player of the season along with Galway's David Hurley and Stephen Walsh.
Blues boss Keith Long is also nominated for First Division Manager of the Year along with Galway's John Caulfield and Cobh Ramblers Shane Keegan.
The Dubliner arrived in Waterford back in March, taking over from Danny Searle. While the title challenge faded away in the springtime as Galway ran away in first place, Long and the management team were able to time their run to perfection with the squad coming to a peak during the playoffs where they beat Athlone, Cobh and Cork.
