Posh boss wins August Manager of the Month and striker named Player of the Month.

Peterborough United manager Steve Evans has been named the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month for August after a perfect start to the campaign with five victories from five and striker Jason Cummings has been named the Player of the Month after netting six times following his arrival on loan from Nottingham Forest.

The pair received their awards at the Mick George Training Academy and both put the club’s start down to ‘hard work’.  “We have made a good start, but the season is a long one and we are not getting carried away. What do I put the start down too? Hard work. The players have worked extremely hard both on the training ground and in matches,” Evans said.

“Yeah we have had to work really hard,” Cummings said. “We have been blowing teams away in the opening halves of games and then defending well. I have been fortunate to score six goals and been involved in a few others and hopefully that will continue. I am enjoying it, the lads are a great bunch and we socialise outside of training and match days. We go to the cinema, eat out together and we really get on well.”
