MANAGER OF THE MONTH | Phil Parkinson scoops January award

Wrexham AFC manager wins National League honour after unbeaten month

15 February 2023

Wrexham AFC manager Phil Parkinson has been named Vanarama National League Manager of the Month for January.

Parkinson scooped the award for the second time this season – and third time since he took over as Wrexham AFC manager – by leading the Red Dragons to four league wins out of four in the month.

Wrexham also went toe-to-toe with two EFL Championship clubs in the Emirates FA Cup – beating Coventry City 4-3 and taking Sheffield United to a replay after a thrilling 3-3 draw.

The Red Dragons were the only Vanarama National League team to boast a 100% record for the month – despite three of the four matches being away from home.

Wrexham started 2023 by beating Solihull Moors 2-1, and then followed up the cup win at Coventry with a comeback victory in the league, in front of the BT Sport cameras, at home to Bromley.

Parkinson’s side then won back-to-back away games, at Maidstone United and Gateshead, to return to the top of the table before a break from league fixtures.

On claiming the award, Parkinson – who also earned the title in March 2022 and September 2022 – said: “It was a great effort in January, from all the staff and players. Any award is well received and hopefully there's more to come!"

Congratulations to Phil, and all the first-team staff!
