Jim Bentley named Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month

5 September 2014

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley has been named the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month for August.

Bentley inspired the players around him to four straight wins to start the campaign.

The team spirit he engendered was shown in abundance in the 3-2 comeback win over Newport County.

Dave Bassett, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: "Bentley has masterminded a great start for Morecambe in Sky Bet League 2.

"Their four straight wins marked a perfect beginning to the new season for the Shrimps where they are amongst the early pace setters."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Six goals in their first two games is some start. Bentley's half-time talk against Newport must have been inspirational."

Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery said: "Bentley has mixed youth with experience and it is paying dividends.

"They rewarded fans who had backed our pre-season special for them to take nine points from their first three matches at a massive 22/1."
