Cotterill Named Manager Of The Year

Bristol City's Steve Cotterill has been named League Managers’ Association League One Manager of the Year.

The 50-year-old masterminded a double-winning season as City won the Sky Bet League One title and a record-breaking third Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

City’s successful campaign saw them collect a club record 99 points and score 96 goals under Cotterill’s guidance.

“It’s been a big team effort at Bristol City,” he said after receiving the award from Southampton manager Ronald Koeman.

City’s first title in 60 years saw Cotterill awarded with the LMA Special Achievement accolade, presented by former City defender David Moyes.

He said: “It’s been a wonderful year. Success at any club is down to team spirit and way of playing. If you get those ingredients, you have a chance.”
