The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett, Barry Fry and Rachel Yankey, has determined that the LMA Performance of the Week Award should go to Harrogate Town for their impressive 4-0 victory against Southend United in their first ever Football League match on 12th September 2020.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,500 competitive matches in professional football.
Harrogate Town manager Simon Weaver and assistant manager Paul Thirlwell were presented with a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LMA Performance of the Week trophy to commemorate the result.
It was a dream start to life in the Football League as Jack Muldoon got the ball rolling after 25 minutes, netting Town's first goal with a well taken low finish, before Lloyd Kerry doubled the lead a minute before the break.
Aaron Martin's first Town goal on the hour mark put the result beyond doubt, before Muldoon rounded the scoring to send Town top of League Two after the first round of matches.
