Hull coach Brett Hodgson said: “Connor Wynne has worked hard to fight his way into the first team, and has shown some real versatility in the fact he has played in several different positions throughout the year.

“He stood out at centre when he got that opportunity. He still has some work to go but he is doing everything he can to make himself in that first-team picture every week.

“Ben is probably the most professional young player I have ever seen. He trains hard every day and is always looking to improve, and he is constantly asking questions as to how he can get better.

“Browny unfortunately had his season shortened by injury, but he’s a local lad who is proud to play for the club, he has got good leg speed and bounces about like a pin-ball when he is out there. He has some good attributes that we are looking to develop.”
