Alan Pardew picks up LMA Award

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has been rewarded for his side’s excellent season by being selected as the League Managers Association Manager of the Season.

The Tyneside club have had an excellent campaign, finishing fifth and exceeding expectations to challenge for a top four spot all the way up until the last day of the season.

Pardew admitted his delight at receiving the award, which he feels is a huge honour.

“It is an incredible honour. Coming from my fellow managers, this really is as good as it gets and has to be the highlight of my managerial career so far,” he confirmed.

“This award is not just for me. Everything we have achieved has been achieved as a result of an incredible team effort. The board, my coaching staff, backroom team, players and our magnificent supporters – they all play a crucial role and I thank every one of them.”

Newcastle will now feature in next season’s Europa League but may face a battle to hold onto some of their superstars once the transfer window reopens.
