Southend's Phil Brown won the League Two award for a run of seven wins.

Brown's side did not concede a goal in April and a win over Morecambe on Saturday will clinch automatic promotion.

Defender Adam Barrett, 35, made it a double for the Shrimpers by winning the player of the month award.

Derby forward Tom Ince, 23, and 31-year-old Preston striker Jermaine Beckford won the player awards for the Championship and League One respectively.
