5 February 2016

Barnsley Head Coach Lee Johnson has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month for January.

He has his team playing fluent passing football to which they have added a steely edge.


Johnson said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have picked up this award. We have picked up some fantastic results against some very good teams both home and away, and credit must go to the staff and players who have really worked hard over the past couple of months, and also to the supporters for sticking by us.”


The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery
