Nomination Domination

ARGYLE have received a double piece of recognition for a sterling month of October.

John Sheridan has been nominated as a candidate for the Manager of the Month award from league sponsors Sky Bet, while defender Carl McHugh is on the shortlist for the Player of the Month award.

The Pilgrims were unbeaten throughout the month, winning five and drawing one of their fixtures. In five Sky Bet League 2 fixtures, they did not conceded a single goal.

John is nominated alongside Justin Edinburgh of Newport County, Micky Mellon of Shrewsbury Town, and Luton Town manager John Still.

Carl, representing the best defensive record in the country, is the only defender in the playing quartet, which also comprises Cambridge striker Kwesi Appiah, Luton front man Mark Cullen and Carlisle midfielder Brad Potts.


The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.

Sky Bet is the title sponsor of The Football League. This season, a £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund will go to a Football League club to spend on players in the January 2015 transfer window.

Fans who bet with Sky Bet generate Transfer Fund Tokens and go into a random draw to win a £5,000 prize – and the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for their Football League club.
