THE 26TH LMA ANNUAL

AWARDS DINNER

Leadership & Management

Over 900 LMA members, partners, friends and stakeholders in the game came

together on 15 May for the 26th LMA Annual Awards Dinner, hosted once again

by London’s iconic Grosvenor House Hotel. The event provides an opportunity to

reflect on the past season, celebrate its successes and commend those individuals

who have stood out and achieved something special.

The Sir Alex Ferguson Trophy for the LMA Manager of the Year, sponsored by

Everest, went to Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola. Voted for by the full LMA

membership, the trophy was presented by England manager and LMA president

Gareth Southgate and Everest CEO and chairman Peter Mottershead.

“I didn’t come to England to change anything, just to enjoy my job and do my best,

just like all the managers in the world, nothing more,” said Guardiola. “Of course,

the target to achieve 100 points in the Premier League was something massive.”

Guardiola also took home the trophy for Premier League Manager of the Year,

sponsored by Barclays.

John Coleman, Paul Hurst and Nuno Espírito Santo were named Managers of the

Year in their respective Sky Bet EFL Leagues by their fellow managers, while Emma

Hayes and Lee Burch received The FA Women’s Super League 1 and Women’s Super

League 2 Manager of the Year Awards, included this year for the first time.

Special Achievement Awards, sponsored by Prostate Cancer UK, were given

to Steve Cooper, Keith Downing and Paul Simpson in recognition of their part

in the England youth teams’ international tournament successes last summer.

Neil Warnock and John Gregory also received LMA Special Achievement Awards,

Warnock for securing his eighth career promotion with Cardiff City, and Gregory

for becoming the first Englishman to win the Indian Super League, with Chennaiyin

FC.

The event also saw Sam Allardyce welcomed into the LMA Hall of Fame - 1,000 Club,

an increasingly difficult feat in the modern era of football management.

LMA chief executive Richard Bevan said: “The LMA wishes to congratulate all 12

managers who received the recognition of their peers this evening. The winners

have committed countless hours of hard work, preparation and dedication to their

profession in order to improve the fortunes of their clubs, teams and players.”
