Lee Clark nominated for Outstanding Achievement

Lee Clark has been nominated for the Outstanding Managerial Achievement in the Football League Awards, despite his recent dismissal by Huddersfield Town.

The 39-year-old Geordie steered the club to a new club record of 43 Games Unbeaten spanning nearly 12 months. (December 2011 - November 2012)

The announcement came just seven days after his sacking by Huddersfield, with the side placed fourth in league one but 7 points behind the automatic promotion places.

The nominations, as voted for by users of the Football Manager website, also included Gus Poyet of Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman.

Jordan Rhodes, who has blitzed 29 goals so far in 2011-12, was nominated for the League One individual player award, another of six total mentions for Huddersfield across the various on- and off-field categories.

"The Football League Awards are not only a chance to celebrate the incredible football and competition played out each week in The Football League, but also the amazing work that goes on at every club off the pitch," said Richard Heaselgrave, Chief Commercial Officer for the Football League, in a press release.

"To make these shortlists is a huge achievement especially taking into account the quality and quantity of superb entries we have received again this year across each category. I would like to wish all those nominated the best of luck on the evening."

The awards will be handed out in London on March 11
