Pocket-lint and Sports Interactive team up for Football Manager Awards

It's the end of the English football season (bar the Football League play-off finals) and as such, footy managers up and down the country are looking at their respective trophy cabinets, either in pride over a glistening new pot or with feather duster in hand to wipe away the cobwebs.

However, there's still one more chance to win something this season, a prize bigger and better than the piddly Champions League trophy. Yep, it's time for the Football Manager Awards 2011/12 - a series of rewards for a hard fought season for those who deserve them the most.

And Pocket-lint is one of the chosen partners to Football Manager developer Sports Interactive's annual awards jamboree this year. Alongside such journalistic luminaries Talksport, Mirror Football and Teamtalk,com, PL is the partner for one of the 2011/12 categories and we hope you'll all head over to the dedicated webpage to vote.

Our category is the "By Mutual Consent award", celebrating the most baffling of managerial dismissals for the last year. The nominees are Simon Garyson (ex-manager of Leeds United), Lee Clark (ex-Huddersfield boss), Gary Megson (sacked by Sheffield Wednesday even though they were third in the league), Sean O'Driscoll (ex-manager of Doncaster), and Antoine Kombouaré (fired when Paris Saint-Germain were top of the French first division).

There are other categories too, including Manager of the Season, Young Manager of the Season, and Most Successful Transfer.

So head over to SI Games' voting page now and click on your favourites. Your votes have to be in by this Friday, 18 May. The winners will be announced on 19 May.

And don't forget, you can still better all of the nominated managers on Football Manager 2012 or Football Manager Handheld yourself, which is now out on Android as well as iOS.
