NEWPORT County AFC boss Michael Flynn and striker Frank Nouble have been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month and Player of the Month awards for August.

Flynn guided the Exiles to two draws and two wins in four league games – three away from home – last month.

He’s up against Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell, Darren Sarll of Stevenage and Paul Tisdale of Exeter City.

Nouble hit five goals in four league games – the most prolific month of the 25-year-old’s career to date – and claimed an assist to get his County career off to a flyer.

The striker scored in the opening day 3-3 draw at Stevenage and the 1-1 draw at Crewe before netting a hat-trick in the 4-1 victory over Chesterfield.

He’s up against James Collins of Luton Town, Kayden Jackson of Accrington Stanley and Joe Jacobson of Wycombe Wanderers.

The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL League expert Don Goodman; EFL marketing director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet football trader Mikey Mumford.

The winners will be announced on Friday.
