The Judging panel for deciding the September manager and player of the month, have made their decision for League 2, and have awarded the manager of the month accolade to Southend United’s Phil Brown. Player of the month for League 2 went to Luton Town’s Luke Wilkinson.
Other shortlisted managers were Wycombe’s Gareth Ainsworth, Bury’s David Flitcroft and Exeter’s bos Paul Tisdale.
Southend achieved a draw and 4 wins in September, turning around a poor start to the season. Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said:
I expected Southend to mount a serious promotion challenge after the disappointment of losing in the Play-Offs last season.
You have to give a lot of credit to Phil – he has calmly turned the Shrimpers into a formidable unit that I believe can stay the course.
The judging panel for the Sky Bet Manager of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
