Cowley named manager of the month

Cowley named manager of the month

To cap off a memorable week, Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley has been named Sky Bet Manager of the Month for December after an impressive spell late last year for the Imps.

Wins over Yeovil, Accrington, Stevenage and Forest Green in the league, were joined by a draw at Newport and another defeat of Stanley in the Checkatrade Trophy, as Lincoln not only moved well into contention for a promotion push, but also a step nearer a first-ever trip to Wembley.

George Burley chairs the judging panel and he said of Cowley's accolade: 'Being a newly promoted side, it takes time for a manager to get his team to adapt to a new league. Danny has improved Lincoln's performances month by month which has moved them into an automatic promotion place.'

Sky Sports' EFL pundit Don Goodman added: '2017 was a year to remember for Danny Cowley's Imps and it's fitting that he ends it as Manager of the Month. FA Cup victories against Ipswich, Burnley and Brighton will live long in the memory, but this season it's all about going for a second successive promotion and the atmosphere around the club at the moment, with attendances the highest in League Two, pushing Cowley's team to the next level.'

Thank you to Graham Burrell and Lincoln City FC for the photograph.
