LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: PARKINSON'S WANDERERS ENJOY OPENING DAY VICTORY
The League Managers Association’s five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Bolton Wanderers for their commendable 2-1 victory against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday 4th August 2018.
The experienced and highly
distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive
matches in professional football.
Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
Bolton Wanderers won a stunning and deserved three points against the team who dropped out of the Premier League last season.
Magennis put his side in front with a headed goal before the hosts got back into the game on the cusp of half-time thanks to Harvey Barnes.
But a late winner from substitute Wildschut silenced The Hawthorns to get Wanderers’ Sky Bet Championship campaign up and running.
