The title goes alongside his EFL League One manager of the season gong after Hurst managed to guide relegation candidates Town to the third tier play-off final.

The LMA event, at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, also saw Pep Guardiola claim the major award, the overall manager of the season.

England chief Gareth Southgate was present. Sam Allardyce was honoured as part of the '1000 club' and entered in the Hall of Fame, while former Shrewsbury boss Paul Simpson, in charge of the England under-20s, won a special achievement award.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo was awarded Championship manager of the season after winning the title while John Coleman, of Accrington Stanley, won the League Two award.

Hurst led Shrewsbury to an incredible total of 87 points in League One. His side spent much of the season fighting in the top two with Wigan and Blackburn Rovers for automatic promotion.

Town head to Wembley later this month for a second time this season after defeat in the Checkatrade Trophy final in April.
