Stevenage boss named Sky Bet Football League manager of the week

Graham Westley guided his side to a 2-0 win at York City on Saturday

Graham Westley has been named the Sky Bet Football League manager of the week.

The Stevenage boss orchestrated his side’s 2-0 victory over York City on Saturday, his side’s fifth victory in six matches.

The team of the week contains the likes of MK Dons’ Dean Lewington and Nottingham Forest’s Ben Osborn, but contains no Boro players.

The Football League, on choosing the Stevenage manager, said: “Westley has now guided his side to a six-game unbeaten run, with five of those matches resulting in three points. Their hot streak saw them leapfrog Plymouth this week to move into the Sky Bet League 2 Play-Off places.”
