The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle and Dave Bassett, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Morecambe for their 2-1 victory over Oldham Athletic on Tuesday 19th February.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 5,500 competitive matches in professional football.
Morecambe Manager Jim Bentley will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
Aaron Collins was the match-winner as he made it two goals from two games to seal a dramatic late win over Paul Scholes’s Oldham.
The new recruit was in the right place at the right time again as he slotted home Liam Mandeville's cross to give the Shrimps a second successive win and took them six points clear of the bottom two.
Boss Jim Bentley stuck with the same side that beat Port Vale at the weekend with Rhys Oates the only change on the bench.
