Double Accolade For City At Post Awards

Steve Cotterill was awarded professional coach of the year at the Bristol Post Sports Awards last night.

The 51-year-old was commended for leading Bristol City to an historic double which included the club’s first title in 60 years and a record-breaking third Johnstone’s Paint Trophy triumph.

The City squad were also victors on the night and received the professional sports team of the year award for their achievements last season.

There were also nominations for several other Bristol Sport stars, but the big winners on the night were Steve Cotterill's men and boxer Lee Haskins who became interim IBF World Bantamweight champion earlier in the year.

Cotterill was quick to praise his side for the accolade and he wouldn’t have received his award if it wasn’t for the “great group” he has at his disposal.

“My award is because of the team,” he told bcfc.co.uk.

"I’ve been in charge of many a team over my 20 years in management and I don’t think I’ve had the relationship with everybody like I have here.

“It’s a good marriage we’ve got. I’m with every single one of them 101% and they are all like sons, I love them all to death - I think they love me too!”

He added: “Since I came to the club I wanted to make sure I left a blueprint for whenever I left.

“Now, the player that has to come into Bristol City needs to be young, hungry, athletic and technically a good footballer.

“We’ve managed to get that with a lot of our signings. They’re a really, really young and great group to work with and they got all the plaudits they deserved last season.

“Hopefully we can keep the group together and they’ll do well in the Championship."
