Former Hammers skipper named as manager of the month


nolanFormer Hammer Kevin Nolan has been named the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month for September.

Nolan’s Notts County were almost unstoppable in September, winning six successive games to jump to the top of Sky Bet League Two and collecting 18 points from a possible 21. Joining in January after a failed management stint at Leyton Orient he recently signed a new three-year contract with Notts County.

NolanNolan said: “This is an extremely proud achievement for me, my staff and my players, who have all made a massive contribution. There’s no way I could do this job without Richard Thomas, Mark Crossley and everyone who has supported me behind the scenes. They all thoroughly deserve this recognition.

“I would also like to thank the chairman once again for the amazing backing he has given me, not only this season but since our arrival in January.”

Nolan spent four years at the Hammers and helped the club earn promotion back into the top flight under Sam Allardyce leaving by mutual consent in 2015. The 35-year-old midfielder played 157 games for the Hammers, scoring 31 goals, following his arrival from Newcastle United in June 2011.
