Around League Two

11 September 2018

There have been plenty of talking points around Sky Bet League Two recently, so let's take a look at some of the key stories from the last week -

August’s Awards 

The August EFL Awards were dished out on Friday, with Danny Cowley and James Norwood receiving the Manager and Player accolades respectively. 

Cowley has guided Lincoln City to sixteen points in their first seven games, sending The Imps to the top of Sky Bet League Two - averaging two goals per game. However, their unbeaten run came to and end in the first gameday of September, losing to Crawley Town. 

With the exception of a 0-0 draw against Mansfield Town, Norwood has been on the scoresheet in every Tranmere Rovers match this season. He has bagged all but one of their goals (seven out of eight), propelling his side to ten points from seven games. 

Cheltenham Town appoint Duff 

Michael Duff has taken over the helm at Cheltenham Town. He fills the vacant post following Gary Johnson’s exit after The Robins drew with the Silkmen earlier in the season. 

Duff is making his return to the Gloucestershire side, having played crucial part in the club's rise from the Southern League to Sky Bet League One in just five years. 

The 40-year-old hung up his boots in 2016, having appeared over 350 times for both Cheltenham and then Burnley. Recently, the former Northern Ireland international has worked with The Clarets as a coach and could well be an up and coming managerial talent. 

The Robins are currently in 18th place in League Two with two wins under their belt thus far.

Kewell sees red 

In his first game in charge at Notts County, Harry Kewell was sent to the stands as his side were thumped 5-1 at Exeter City. 

Kewell protested against the referee’s decisions after two penalty awards didn’t go his side’s way and the man in the middle deemed his comments worthy of banishment from the touchline. 

County are bottom of the league having taken one point from their seven opening matches, and frustrations seemed to boil over at St James Park. 

Before the Exeter game, Notts also gave professional contracts to youngsters Remaye Campbell and Alex Howes, who have both graduated from the club’s academy.
