Southend pair up for monthly League Two awards

Southend United pair Paul Sturrock and Michael Timlin have been nominated for the League Two Manager and Player of the Month awards respectively.

September proved to be a superb month for the Shrimpers as they surged to the top of the table after key wins over fellow promotion chasers.

A 4-0 win away at Rotherham United was a stand-out result for the side and a game that will live long in the memory of Timlin who plundered a clinically taken brace.

The 26-year-old’s loan capture from divisional rivals Swindon was one of seven new recruits brought in by Sturrock this summer as the former Plymouth manager looks to cast the club’s previous money troubles aside and mount a realistic promotion challenge.

Southend also earned crucial victories over Gillingham and Shrewsbury in September, the latter an impressive 3-0 victory on Friday night that propelled them to the league summit.
