'Luggy' Rewarded

'Luggy' Rewarded

Former Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock has been rewarded for guiding his new club Swindon Town up to second in League Two by collecting the Manager of the Month award for January.

Sturrock, who guided the Owls to League One play-off glory at Cardiff before being sacked as Wednesday boss last October, led the Robins to four wins and a draw at the start of the new year to keep Town firmly in the hunt for promotion.

He told the official Swindon site: 'I was delighted to win the Coca-Cola manager of the month award today, although I would like to think it is for all the staff here at the football club.

'The manager gets the accolades, but without the backroom staff you don't get anything. My Wife will probably hide the award upstairs, but it is a special one to get and we are very pleased to receive it.'

The award makes it a league double for Swindon - and former Wednesday employees after striker Lee Peacock collected the Player of the Month for January as voted for by supporters.

And Sturrock went on to say that he hopes to guide the Robins not only to promotion from League Two - but also to the Championship in the long-run to face a possible encounter against his former club.

He told Sky Sports: 'Swindon supporters feel we're a Championship side and that's where we want to take the football club. It is a big club and we've been in the Premiership as well.

'I think all our fans want us to go up. It's important to develop and go in the right direction. We've got the results and put ourselves in a position, now it's important for us to kick on.'

Sturrock took on the good foundations already laid by Dennis Wise before the former Chelsea man left to manage Leeds, winning eleven of his 17 games in charge, drawing four and losing just two at the Robins helm.

Well done Luggy, it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if you by-passed us in the near future...
