Graham Turner received a special award for services to football at the League Managers Association (LMA) awards dinner on Tuesday night.

Turner stepped down as Hereford boss back in late April after 14 years in the managerial hot-seat at Edgar Street, instead continuing in his role of chairman and director of football.

And the former Wolves, Aston Villa and Shrewsbury boss, 61, was duly recognised for his services to the game at the ceremony in Nottingham and presented with a glass trophy.

Turner, alongside Steve Coppell, was also honoured having chalked up over 1000 matches as a manager.
