This is the 28th year of the Manager of the Month awards and we are delighted that AFORD Awards have now been sponsors for twenty-five seasons! The League is grateful to them for their continued support and we look forward to it continuing for many years to come. Three monthly awards are made, Premier Division, Central & East Section and Western Section. At the end of each season a trophy is awarded to the Manager of the Year. A list of previous winners can be found here.
Since their inception the criteria for winning each of the awards has remained the same and is as follows:
Points are awarded as follows for all County FA Cup games and games which come under the jurisdiction of the League, i.e. League Games, League Cup games, but not any outside Cup games, e.g. the Weald of Kent or Sevenoaks Charity Cup:-
Away Win – 4 points Away Draw – 2 points
Home Win – 3 points Home Draw – 1 point
A team must have played a minimum of two games in a month to qualify. The team in the Premier Division plus one team from each of the Central & East and Western Sections with the highest number of points will be declared the winners subject to not having any players sent from the field of play or an excessive number of cautions. With this award being allied to a good disciplinary record, if two teams are equal on points and one team has had a caution during the month and the other has not, the Manager of the team with the clear disciplinary record will be declared the winner.
Should two or more teams be level on points and have identical disciplinary records then the teaming winning the most games will be declared the winner. If still a tie then the team with the largest goal difference will be declared the winner. If still equal then the team scoring the most goals shall be declared the winner.
