Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade wins League One Manager of the Month
10:06am Friday 6th September 2013 in Latest Sport
Russell Slade has won the League One Manager of the Month after guiding Leyton Orient to their record-breaking start to the campaign.
The O’s set a new club record for their best ever start to a campaign after Saturday’s win at Colchester United made it five wins out of five for the table toppers.
Former Charlton Athletic boss Alan Curbishley, who chairs the Manager of the Month judging panel, said: “Russell Slade’s men maintain the only 100 per cent record in the Sky Bet Football League after their great start to the season.
“Scoring 13 goals certainly makes Leyton Orient a team you would want to go and watch.”
Sky Bet head of football Paul Wiggins added: “Leyton Orient were fancied in some quarters for League One this season and they have got off to a dream start.
“Russell Slade has been allowed to add a couple of key players over the summer to an already solid squad and this continuity looks to be paying off.”
