Scholes and Ferguson scoop awards

November 10, 2006

Sir Alex Ferguson has been named the Barclays manager of the month for October, while Paul Scholes has scooped the player of the month award.

United beat Newcastle, Wigan, Liverpool and Bolton to take a maximum 12 points from their four Barclays Premiership games across the month.

Scholes' form was integral to United's results, and he marked his 500th Reds appearance against Liverpool with the opening goal to kickstart a vital win over Rafael Benitez's side.
