LMA PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK IN ASSOCIATION WITH SKY SPORTS SOCCER SATURDAY - WANDERERS WIN AWAY AT HUDDERSFIELD

The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett, Barry Fry Paul Ince and Rachel Yankey, has determined that the LMA Performance of the Week Award, in association with Sky Sports Soccer Saturday, should go to Wycombe Wanderers for their 3-2 victory against Huddersfield Town on Saturday 13th February 2021. 

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,500 competitive matches in professional football.

Wycombe Wanderers Manager Gareth Ainsworth will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LMA Performance of the Week trophy on behalf of the whole coaching team.

On receiving the award Gareth said: “I’m delighted to accept the LMA Performance of the Week award on behalf of all the staff and players after our win at Huddersfield last week.

“Even at 2-0 down, I believed that we had what it takes to turn it around and we did really well to keep our composure, make a few tactical changes and take the game to Huddersfield.

“The goals we scored came as the result of some excellent attacking play, and the boys put their bodies on the line at the end to see out the result as well, so overall I was really pleased and it was an important win on the road for us.

“Thank you to the LMA panel for selecting us as the winner of this award.”
