Eddie Howe wins the LMA Manager of the Year award

Eddie HoweEddie Howe has capped a simply stunning season by being named the League Managers' Association Manager of the Year. Howe's remarkable achievements at Bournemouth have been recognised by his fellow incumbents, who have voted the affable 37-year-old ahead of the likes of the favourite in the betting, Jose Mourinho, and Southampton's Ronald Koeman.

  • Howe is the first winner outside of the Premier League since Steve Coppell (Reading) in 2006.
  • Howe was the second favourite, behind Jose Mourinho, in the betting.

Howe led his troops to the Championship title on the final day of the 2014/15 season, having won promotion to the Premier League a few days earlier. The Cherries will now embark on their debut top-flight campaign, with Howe eager to make a bold statement in the Promised Land.

Howe, who became only the fourth manager from outside the Premier League to win the award, unsurprisingly also bagged the Championship accolade. Meanwhile, Chelsea's title winning boss Jose Mourinho had to settle for the Premier League gong, with Bristol City's Steve Cotterill and Wycombe's Gareth Ainsworth handed the League One and League Two honours respectively.

Additionally, Bradford City's Phil Parkinson scooped the FA Cup manager of the year after his League One chargers stunned Chelsea and Sunderland en route to progressing through to the last-8 of the famous cup competition.
