IAN Holloway has won the August manager of the month prize in the npower Championship, while the top player accolade has gone to Tom Ince.

It caps a golden spell for Ince, who was recently called up to the England under-21 team on the back of a tremendous run of form for the Seasiders, who moved to the top of the table in the early weeks of the campaign.

The sponsorship manager for npower Emma Collins said: “Blackpool’s sensational start is all the more impressive given they had the heartbreak of a play-off final defeat in May, so to come back strongly shows great resolve both as individuals and as team.”

During August, Blackpool scored 10 goals in three matches, while recording a 100 per cent sequence.

They lost their perfect record with a 1-0 defeat at Leicester on the first day of September.
