LG Performance Award For Sheffied Wednesday Win

9 February 2016

Manager Collects LG Award For FA Cup Victory

"To have this club involved in games like this and challenging with Sheffield Wednesday to get into the fifth round of the cup is where we should be.

"We were every bit as good in that second half as we have been poor in other games. We worked very hard on our game plan on the training pitch and all the players stuck to it.

"People are asking for attacking football. I cannot do any more than my right-back getting on the end of a cross in the 97th minute!"
Mellon told BBC Sport:

Facing an in-form Sheffield Wednesday side, Mellon’s side were understandably underdogs going into the match, but a passionate performance which culminated in two late goals at Greenhous Meadow, including a 97th minute winner from on-loan Fulham defender Jack Grimmer, has set up a dream home cup tie in the fifth round against Manchester United.

Shrewsbury manager, Micky Mellon, will receive a specially commissioned trophy made by world renowned silversmiths and LMA Partner, Thomas Lyte of London, in a presentation to commemorate the award.

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

The League Managers Association five-man Performance of the Week panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, were in agreement that the LG Performance of the Week Award for the week commencing 25 January should go to Shrewsbury Town following their dramatic 3-2 victory against Sky Bet Championship side, Sheffield Wednesday, in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday 30th January 2016.
