Wanderers scoop LG LMA Performance of the Week Award

The League Managers Association’s five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Bolton Wanderers for their commendable 2-1 victory against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday 4 August 2018.

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson received a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result in his pre-Bristol City press conference.

The gaffer consequently presented the champagne to long-standing employee Joe McGlynn who is currently amidst his 50th year of working for Bolton Wanderers.
