Jimbo Award Nomination

7 March 2017

Jim Bentley has been nominated for February's Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award.

The February nominations for the Manager of the Month Award are:

Jim Bentley Morecambe
With staff and player wages being paid late and uncertainty about the club affecting his ability to sign new players during the transfer window, Bentley inspired a solidarity in his side to collect 15 points from eight games, five of them away from home. 

Nathan Jones Luton Town
Draws against promotion rivals Doncaster and Plymouth underpinned a haul of nine points from five unbeaten games for Jones’ team. Their consistency has mirrored his measured approach as the pressure to make the play-offs increases.

Kevin Nolan Notts County
His refusal to accept his new side were in a relegation battle transmitted confidence to his players. They responded by garnering 11 points from six games, which included away wins at rivals Leyton Orient and promotion-chasing Plymouth.

Darren Sarll Stevenage
Having declared he finds being a manager a lonely job, Sarll made friends aplenty in February by guiding Stevenage into the play-off positions with a 16-point haul from six unbeaten games and an even more impressive 14-5 goal differential.

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY MARCH 10 2017

The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL League expert Don Goodman; EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery
