CHESTER CITY manager Mark Wright was last night named Nationwide Conference manager of the month for February.
During the month, City enjoyed a 100% record and established an eight-point cushion at the top of the table.
Wright, who has been in charge at the Deva Stadium since January 2002, said: "It's nice to win these awards, but it is a team award really.
"Managers get the accolades at successful times like this, but this is a shared award between the players and my backroom staff at the club.
"The only award we all want is promotion at the end of the season."
Wright added: "We had a good February and the play-ers responded magnificently to everything we asked of them. No management team can ask for more than that from their players."
The City boss was still ecstatic after last weekend's thrilling 2-1 win at play-off hopefuls Woking, a victory that was sealed by an 86th-minute goal from substitute Michael Twiss.
Wright insisted: "I've had a good career in football, but I'm as proud for what my players have achieved than for any-thing I did when playing."
The Conference management committee are to arbitrate on dates for City's two outstanding games that need rescheduling. The scheduled home match against Aldershot on March 27, as well as the trip to Telford United on March 16, need new dates because of both clubs' involvement in the FA Trophy.
