Alloa Athletic boss Jim Goodwin has been voted Ladbrokes League One Manager of the Month for February. The Wasps were unbeaten last month, notching up impressive home wins over Airdrieonians (2-1) and East Fife (3-0), away win against Queen’s Park at Hampden Park and 2-2 draw against league leaders Livingston. Alloa Athletic are currently second in the league table. The Ladbrokes monthly awards are voted for by members of the Scottish media, with a Manager and a Player of the Month selected for each of the four divisions.
Jim Goodwin was delighted to receive the award but wanted to accept it on behalf of “The Team” - "I am delighted to have been awarded the Manager of the Month for February. Although the trophy says 'Manager', in my eyes it's an award for the 'Team' (Backroom Staff Included). I genuinely believe that any manager is only as good as his players, and I have been over the moon with the attitude and performance levels from the lads in recent weeks. It is up to myself and the staff to make sure that the players are ready for match day, i.e. training, tactics and team selection, but once they cross that 'White Line' it is their job to make sure that the game plan is carried out appropriately, as a group they have done that brilliantly and deserve all the credit! The important thing now is that we maintain our high standards and don't take our foot off the gas."
