Crawley Town Football Club is delighted to confirm that Manager Scott Lindsey and midfielder Liam Kelly have been put forward for the official Sky Bet League Two Manager and Player of the Month Awards for September.
A full list of nominations can be found below courtesy of the EFL:
September Manager of the Month:
Lee Bell (Crewe Alexandra): Bell’s side scored nine goals in their three away matches alone, and 14 in total, as they collected 11 points from five unbeaten games. He has quietly assembled a side which is true to the Crewe tradition of showcasing home-grown talent.
Dave Challinor (Stockport County): Just like last season, Stockport began slowly, but Challinor has turned their form around emphatically and in a thrilling attacking style. A 5-0 win over Wrexham was the highlight of 13 points from five unbeaten games and a 15-6 goal differential.
Mike Flynn (Swindon Town): Flynn has brought a wave of positivity to the County Ground, on and off the pitch. His attacking side continued their free-scoring ways with 11 goals in five unbeaten games which yielded 11 points and moved them into the top three.
Scott Lindsey (Crawley Town): For excitement, look no further than Crawley whose five games brought 13 points and a total of 24 goals, 16 of them scored by Lindsey’s side. The fighting spirit he has instilled underpinned thrilling 3-2 comeback wins over Tranmere and Grimsby.
September Player of the Month:
Louie Barry (Stockport County) - Barry used his dynamic ability to beat defenders to score in all five of County’s five games in September and add two assists. A stunning strike at Crawley and a solo goal against Wrexham were the pick of the 20-year-old’s sharp finishes.
Dan Crowley (Notts County) – County’s attacking play relies upon Crowley’s energy. From slide-rule passes to supplying a dangerous cross or ghosting into the area, he had three goals and an assist, either making or scoring the opening goal in his side’s three wins.
Aden Flint (Mansfield Town) – The uncompromising leader of a Mansfield defence which conceded just two goals in five unbeaten games. A colossus in the tackle and commanding in the air, his last-minute headed flick-on also brought the equaliser at Colchester.
Liam Kelly (Crawley Town) - The fulcrum around which Crawley’s play revolves. If Crawley fans were unsure of his qualities when he was signed, they now know about his energy, influence and the way he controls play. Had three assists and a goal in five games.
Winners of the awards will be announced on Friday.
