CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe has been nominated for the Outstanding Managerial Achievement Award at the Football League Awards.

The gong recognises exceptional achievement over the last 12 months and fans suggested nominations via Sports Interactive's Football Manager twitter account and facebook page.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook and Yeovil manager Gary Johnson are also in the running with the winner due to be announced at The Brewery in London on Sunday.

Howe guided Cherries to promotion from League One last term, with the Dean Court side in the relative safety of mid-table in the Championship this term.

Cherries legend Steve Fletcher will receive the Sir Tom Finney Award - recognising lifetime achievement - at the ceremony.

The club has also been nominated in the best digital content and audience growth category.

Considering where we were when he re-joined the club this should be a shoe-in for EH.

But what a fantastic night for AFCB if both Eddie and Fletch get awards !

howe has long been recognized as a top manager. When he got us promoted from league 2 teamtalk.com's experts said he was the second best manager in the football league that year and would have been the best if not for an unlikely winner of the championship play off final.
I am well pleased for fletch, too, finally our jinx seems to be over and we are going places and he is being acknowledged for his presence and influence at our club.
Another legend who should be considered is Sean Goater, IMO the most under rated player ever in the football league who showed everyone how lower league players can cut it in the prem' by banging in a hatrick against Man Utd in the Manchester derby.
