Parkinson receives LMA award

21 May 2013

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson was acknowledged for his part in City's amazing 2012/2013 season at Monday night's annual LMA awards evening.

Fresh from collecting his winner's medal on Saturday following City's League 2 Play-Off Final victory over Northampton Town, Parkinson was given an LMA Special Merit Award sponsored by npower during the ceremony at the historic Old Billingsgate in London.

The LMA is the official organisation for all professional football managers - the League Managers Association.

The accolade was not only for Parkinson's role in leading City to promotion into League 1, but also for guiding the Bantams all the way to the Capital One Cup Final back in February.

This latest award for Parkinson comes after the Bradford chief picked up the Football League Outstanding Managerial Achievement award at The Football League's 2013 awards evening just under two months ago.

The night also saw Sir Alex Ferguson CBE named as LMA Manager of the Year for a record fourth time.

The legendary manager, who guided Manchester United to their record 20th league title this year in his final season in charge at Old Trafford, also picked up the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Year gong.

The npower League 2 Manager of the Year award went to Gillingham's Martin Allen.
