Parker receives second successive Manager of the Month award


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth head coach Scott Parker has been named Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for October.

Parker has received the award, his second in two months, following a sensational month where the Cherries maintained a 100%-win record.

His side only conceded one goal in five matches as they secured wins over Sheffield United, Bristol City, Stoke City, Huddersfield Town and Reading.

The Cherries currently occupy top spot in the Championship, setting a new club record for longest unbeaten start to a season.

Parker told afcb.co.uk: “I have to give full credit for this award to my staff and players for their efforts throughout October and the season as a whole.

"To secure a 100%-win record in a month and concede just one goal in the Championship is a fantastic achievement and it is testament to the hard-work and mentality of everyone at the club.

"We’re also extremely grateful for the backing we’ve been given from our supporters, who have followed us in great numbers home and away this season.”

Lloyd Kelly had also been nominated for Sky Bet Championship player of the month, but the award went to Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic.
