Manager and Defender win Sky Bet monthly awards

11 March 2021

Ian Evatt and Ricardo Almeida Santos have respectively won the Sky Bet Manager of the Month and Sky Bet Player of the Month awards for February.

The Wanderers Manager guided Wanderers to five wins and a draw during February as his side charged up the Sky Bet League Two table. It’s his second such award of the campaign.

Completing a Wanderers double, central defender Almeida Santos, who signed a new contract with the club in February, was awarded the Player of The Month award after helping Wanderers to keep four clean sheets from six games and picking up 16 points from a possible 18.

Evatt said: “It’s a reward for all of my staff for all the hard work we are putting in to prepare the players well and also it’s an acknowledgement for the players who are going out there and performing to the levels we expect.”

Almeida Santos: “I am extremely honoured to win player of the month, it really does mean a lot to me. To be honest, I'm just so happy to be here and to be part of such a big club and a great team. I feel so lucky as the club, the team and the fans really believe in me and continue to support me week in and week out.”

On Almeida Santos’s award, Evatt added: “I’m delighted because Rico has been one of our most consistent players all season and, as a fellow centre-half, it’s good to see that centre backs are getting awards like this because they normally go to strikers!”

The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan, and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
