Leicester City Women boss, Jonathan Morgan has been named the LMA Manager of the Month for December in the FA Women’s Championship.

Morgan, who also won the award in October, helped guide his side to three league victories in December.

The Foxes enjoyed victories over London Bees (3-0), Charlton Athletic (2-0) and Blackburn Rovers (3-2) as the Morgan’s side ended the year at the top of the FA Women’s Championship. Coincidentally, Foxes forward Natasha Flint picked up the Player of the Month award earlier in the week, for December.

After receiving the accolade, the Foxes boss told LCFC TV: “It’s always nice to be recognised for our achievements, but it’s the whole set-up here that has made this award possible. 

“All I do is set the girls up to go out there and be the best version of themselves, but none of it could be possible without the support of the staff, and ultimately the players who get the results for us to put us in the limelight. 

“It shows that we’re doing something right here because the results speak for themselves right now. We’re only half-way through the season though and there’s a long way to go, but to receive a couple of awards already makes you feel better and gives you a bit of an extra push to be hungry for more. 

“It was quite a congested month for us, and we kept the same starting XI throughout that time so it’s credit to the girls for staying fresh and putting in some good performances.

“We’re very pleased with how December went, and like I say we want to push on now and have more success and keep doing what we’re doing.”

Morgan’s side entertain Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon.
