John Nominated For Managerial Award

Boss shortlisted for October accolade

6 November 2018

Colchester United Head Coach John McGreal has been shortlisted for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month for October, after a month that thrust the U's into the thick of the promotion race.

The U's picked up twelve points in six games in the third month of the season - and followed that up with another win in their first November fixture on Saturday.

John has been nominated for October's award - the fourth time he has been selected in his time at the club so far.

Here's the lowdown on this month's nominees:-

Keith Curle (Northampton Town)
When he took over on October 1, Northampton had collected just seven points, couldn’t score and were shipping goals for fun. Curle led them to 11 points from six games with a 10-4 goal differential.

John McGreal (Colchester United)
Another free-flowing month for his improving side as they climbed into the play-off places with four wins and 12 points from six games. Understands young players and how to improve their month-on-month consistency.

Micky Mellon (Tranmere Rovers)
Has adjusted his side to life back in the Sky Bet EFL without a hitch, guiding Rovers into the play-off positions after a month in which they picked up 13 points from six games and scored a division-high 12 goals in the process.

Paul Tisdale (MK Dons)
It took him 10 years at Exeter to be named Manager of the Month. He could manage it in three months at MK after a near-perfect October in which his side collected 16 points from a possible 18, conceding just two goals.

We'll have news of how John has got on, on Friday!
