Sky Bet Manager of the Month: League One August Nominations

6 September 2017

With the first month of the season complete, it's time to choose the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month. Here are the nominations...

Paul Cook (Wigan Athletic)

Began this season where he left off last term, as a Manager of the Month nominee. That award was for Portsmouth in League Two, and he made a similar impact in Greater Manchester, guiding his new team to 10 points from a possible 12.

Paul Hurst (Shrewsbury Town)

Spent the summer making shrewd acquisitions of players he trusts and then moulding them into a side capable of challenging at the top of League One. Three wins and a draw brought in 10 points and gave the Shrews a flying start.

Grant McCann (Peterborough United)

Revived the Posh tradition of goals and entertainment in equal measure as he led them to the top of League One with a perfect record of four straight wins with a 12-4 goal differential, which included 4-1 away victories at Bristol Rovers and Northampton Town.

Uwe Rosler (Fleetwood Town)

Stayed loyal to Fleetwood - even after losing in the play-offs - when other clubs came calling and began the new campaign in stirring fashion, winning the first three games without conceding and collecting nine points from 12.

The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL League expert Don Goodman; EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trader Mikey Mumford.

The winners will be announced on Friday 8th September.
