COUNTY BOSS NOMINATED FOR MANAGER OF THE MONTH

8 December 2015

Exiles Manager nominated for Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award...

Manager John Sheridan has guided the Exiles to an unbeaten November, with impressive draws at high-flying Oxford United and Accrington Stanley, matched by a superb victory at Rodney Parade against Luton Town. 

County are now seven points clear of the bottom-two, and have also reached the third-round of the FA Cup for the first time in over thirty-years.

The full list of nominations is below:

Michael Appleton (Oxford United)

Not the prettiest month for Appleton’s side in November, but it was certainly effective. Three hard-fought 1-0 wins underpinned a haul of 10 points from a possible 12, demonstrated a tight team spirit and lifted Oxford into top spot.


John Coleman (Accrington Stanley)

Coleman’s entertainers scored 10 goals and collected seven points from three games - two of them away - as they continued to thrill their fans with their attacking intent. A 3-2 win at Cambridge United was followed by a 5-1 win at York City.


John Sheridan (Newport County)

Led his new team through an unbeaten November with six points from four games as they clawed their way out of the League 2 relegation places. The new belief was evident in away draws at promotion-chasing Accrington and Oxford.


Chris Wilder (Northampton Town)

Set aside concerns over the future of the club and non-payment of wages to inspire his team to a perfect month with four wins out of four. The togetherness he has instilled lifted Northampton into the automatic promotion places.


The winner will be announced on Friday 11th December. 

The judging panel comprises of former Ipswich Town Manager George Burnley, Sky Sports' Football League expert Don Goodman, Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson, League Managers' Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
