There’s joy for several past SPFL faces as they secured English Championship football next season with Hull City.
Former Aberdeen striker Josh Magennis, ex-Motherwell pair George Long and James Scott plus Hamilton Accies academy graduate Greg Docherty have been promoted from League One after a 2-1 Hull City win at Lincoln City on Saturday afternoon. Sean McLoughlin, formerly of St Mirren, has also been involved this term.
Magennis scored one of the goals as Hull City returned to the Championship at the first time of asking. They were relegated to League One last season but consistent results have secured an immediate return.
Manager Grant McCann – who had a brief loan spell at Livingston in his playing days – said: “I’m over the moon for everybody at the football club, particularly the owners for their backing of me last summer which I thank them for, and also the staff and players because everybody has been outstanding and it has been a real team effort.
