Stockport Manager Dave Challinor’s incredible season continued at the League Managers Association (LMA) awards last night, as he was named the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Year for 2023/24.

DC was presented with the award at the 32nd LMA Annual Awards Dinner, having guided County to a first EFL league title in 57 years, securing his seventh promotion as a manager in the process.

He joined Portsmouth boss John Mousinho, Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna and Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola in winning the respective divisional awards, with the trophy presented to the gaffer by Sam Allardyce and Chris Hughton.

Dave made history this season in becoming the first County manager in history to guide us to two league titles.

The 48-year-old has taken charge of 151 games across his three seasons at Edgeley Park, winning 85 of them in an era of remarkable success for the club.

He is also the first ever County boss to pick up an LMA Manager of the Year award, having beaten off competition from Mansfield’s Nigel Clough and Crawley’s Scott Lindsey.
