November Manager of the Month Awards
Blue Square Announce “Manager of the Month” Winners for November
Cambridge United boss Jimmy Quinn has won the Blue Square Premier “Manager of the Month” award for November. Quinn’s team achieved a 100% record for the month including notable victories away at Torquay and Burton. Cambridge also progressed to the second round of the FA Cup, by beating current Blue Square Premier leaders Aldershot. The award is judged by a panel of experts including Setanta Blue Square Premier pundit Paul Parker. Parker had this to say about Quinn: “When you look at the teams that Cambridge faced during the month you can see the scale of Jimmy’s achievement, and they have maintained their unbeaten home record along the way”.
In the Blue Square South the award goes to newly appointed Braintree Town manager Lee Patterson. The former East Thurrock boss took the reigns a few days into the month and led his team to three successive league victories. The Iron now find themselves just three points away from the Blue Square South play-off positions.
Nuneaton Borough manager Kevin Wilkin has scooped the award in the Blue Square North. The Boro climbed to sixth spot in the Blue Square North table with four wins during this period, three of which were away from home. Wilkin’s side conceded only two goals during this time, and achieved a notable home victory over in form Hyde United.
