Bentley misses out on Manager of the Month award

MORECAMBE boss Jim Bentley has missed out on becoming League 2 Manager of the Month for August.

Bentley was shortlisted for the gong following the Shrimps’ excellent start to the season which sees them third in League 2 ahead of Saturday’s game against table-toppers Crawley.

The award has gone to Rotherham manager Andy Scott.

Crawley’s Steve Evans and Shrewsbury’s Graham Turner were also nominated.

Bentley was looking to secure a unusual double after he won the League 2 Player of the Month award for August in the Shrimps’ first season in the Football League.
