Lockwood wins manager of the month award

After a month which saw his side unbeaten in league and cups Guiseley boss Adam Lockwood has received the Vanarama National League’s Manager of the Month award for December.

The 35 year-old’s run of success included a win over league leaders Lincoln City at Nethermoor, league draws against Chester and Woking, an FA Trophy win at Chorley and success in the West Riding County Cup.

Lockwood was elevated to the managerial hot seat following the sacking of his former boss Mark Bower back in August.

Lockwood took over in the interim and then was given the post permanently in September.

The centre-back made over 400 appearances, mainly in the Football League, primarily for Yeovil Town (159) and Doncaster Rovers (178) after starting out as a trainee with Reading.

He was a member of Yeovil’s FA Trophy winning team which beat Stevenage 2-0 in 2002.

Lockwood later played for Oldham Athletic and Bury.

He has played 40 games for Guiseley and earlier this season he appointed former Doncaster boss Dave Penney as his assistant.

Lockwood made his last league appearance against Wrexham back on August 9th.
