The LMA Manager of the Year title is voted for by Premier League and Football League managers for the manager who achieved most during the course of the season. Alex Ferguson was the first winner in 1993 after leading Manchester United to the first Premier League title although unlike the rival Premier League Manager of the Season the winners list isn't dominated by Premier League title-winning managers. Having said that though despite the fact that managers from all the top four divisions are eligible only four times has a lower league manager taken the honour - Sunderland manager Peter Reid in 1996, Barnsley manager Danny Wilson in 1997, Reading's Steve Coppell in 2006 and Bournemouth's Eddie Howe in 2015.
