NEWS: Russell Slade Named Joint Winner Of The LMA League 1 Manager Of The Year Award

12 May 2014

O's boss Russell Slade and Wolves manager Kenny Jackett were named as the first ever joint winners of the LMA League 1 Manager of the Year Award this evening in London

Slade has led Orient to a third place finish and record points tally, whilst statistically he is now the O's most successful ever manager with the highest win rate amongst any of his predecessors. 

He recently celebrated four years in charge in E10 and this season has seen his O's side rarely drop out of the top three places in the table, as they re-wrote the record books and continually defied the odds. 

The award is voted for by other managers and it is the first time it has been shared, with Jackett leading Wolves back to the Championship at the first attempt finishing as champions of League 1.
