Bruce's Magpies awarded LG Performance of the Week

Newcastle United head coach Steve Bruce has been presented with the LG Performance of the Week award in recognition of the Magpies’ 3-2 victory over West Ham last weekend.

First half strikes from Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernández got United up and running at the London Stadium on Saturday, before Jonjo Shelvey’s stunning free kick made it 3-0 after the break.

Late strikes from Fabian Balbuena and Robert Snodgrass couldn’t take the gloss off what was a fine win away from home for Bruce’s men, who are now a point off a place in the top half of the Premier League.

The award, which is determined by the League Manager’s Association panel comprising LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson, former Newcastle boss Chris Hughton, Barry Fry, Joe Royle, Sir Alex Ferguson and Dave Bassett, was presented to Bruce at the Magpies’ Benton training centre ahead of their fixture against AFC Bournemouth.

The United boss also received a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and the LG Performance of the Week trophy to commemorate the victory.
