Rochdale boss Keith Hill was named Coca-Cola League 2 Manager of the Month for September.
After a difficult opening to the season Keith Hill’s side enjoyed an excellent September, winning four of their five league fixtures. They began the month with a high-scoring away draw at Morecambe before going on to record back to back wins over Torquay United and Northampton Town. Dale ended September with further victories over Hereford United and Darlington to remain unbeaten and move up to be among the early pacesetters in Coca-Cola League 2.
Also short-listed for the September award were John Coleman of Accrington Stanley, Eddie Howe of Bournemouth and Shrewsbury Town’s Paul Simpson.
The decision to present the Coca-Cola League 2 Manager of the Month award was made by the Coca-Cola Awards panel which includes former World Cup referee Jack Taylor, on behalf of The Football League, Olaf Dixon of the League Managers Association and Steve Watts, Marketing Assets Manager, Coca-Cola Great Britain.
