MORECAMBE boss Jim Bentley has missed out on becoming League 2 Manager of the Month for August.
Bentley was shortlisted for the gong following the Shrimps’ excellent start to the season which sees them third in League 2 ahead of Saturday’s game against table-toppers Crawley.
The award has gone to Rotherham manager Andy Scott.
Crawley’s Steve Evans and Shrewsbury’s Graham Turner were also nominated.
Bentley was looking to secure a unusual double after he won the League 2 Player of the Month award for August in the Shrimps’ first season in the Football League.
