Two prestigious nominations

5 February 2013

Brian and Alfie up for top flight monthly awards

Reading Football Club have received nominations in both the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month and the Barclays Premier League Player of the Month categories for January.

After scintillating wins over West Brom and Newcastle, as well as a thrilling 2-2 home draw with Chelsea, Brian McDermott has been nominated alongside Sir Alex Ferguson, Roberto Mancini and Harry Redknapp in the running for the prestigious Manager of the Month accolade.

Adam Le Fondre, meanwhile, scored five league goals in the opening month of 2013, bagging once in that incredible comeback against the Baggies before coming off the bench to net two in the win at a snowy St James' and then our dramatic home draw with Rafa Benitez's men.

Alfie is up against QPR keeper Julio Cesar, Everton full back Leighton Baines and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez for the trophy.  Huge congratulations and wishes of good luck go to both Brian and Adam, after what was a magnificent month for the Royals.

The winners of both awards are due to be announced at approximately 2pm tomorrow afternoon.
