Pep Guardiola will lead the list of successful managers to be honoured by the Football Writers’ Association at the 38th Northern Managers’ Awards Dinner on Sunday November 4 in Manchester.
The Manchester City manager will be rewarded for leading his side to the Premier League title at our annual gathering in Manchester, which is always a star-studded event and will again be in association with FWA sponsors William Hill.
This year’s event, at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in Peter Street, Manchester, will also honour other trophy-winning managers from the North, including Paul Cook of Wigan Athletic, Tony Mowbray of Blackburnm Rovers, Paul Warne of Rotherham United, John Coleman of Accrington Stanley, John Askey formerly of Macclesfield Town and Mickey Mellon of Tranmere Rovers.
As usual, there will be an array of stars from the world of football, and funds will be raised for a nominated children’s charity. BBC Radio’s Ian Dennis will be MC for the evening and also host the traditional quiz.
Tickets are £70 for FWA members and £75 for non-members, available by contacting FWA NW branch secretary Richard Bott on firstname.lastname@example.org Discounted rooms are available at the Radisson. Reception will start at 6.45 and dress code is lounge suit.
You can find out more details from FWA NprthWest branch chairman Andy Dunn, Paul Hetherington or Steve Bates.
