Nottingham Forest - Lee Camp Wins Award
Sat 09 Jan 2010
Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Lee Camp is celebrating today after being named Coca-Cola Championship Player of the Month for December 2009.
- Camp was in outstanding form in December, conceding just a single goal to help his side record four wins and two draws from their six league fixture. The 'keeper's run of clean sheets has been instrumental in Forest's rise up the table and they now head into the New Year with an automatic promotion place in the Coca-Cola Championship firmly in their sights.
- Also short-listed for the December award were Chris Burke of Cardiff City, Billy Sharp of Doncaster Rovers and Swansea City's Darren Pratley.
- Jermaine Beckford of Leeds United won the award in League 1 and Rochdale's Craig Dawson was given the League 2 accolade.
The decision to present the Coca-Cola Championship Player of the Month award was made by the Coca-Cola Player of the Month awards panel which includes former World Cup referee Jack Taylor, on behalf of The Football League, Steve Bates, Chairman of the Football Writers' Association, Malcolm Clarke, Chairman of the Football Supporters' Federation and Steve Watts, Marketing Assets Manager, Coca-Cola Great Britain.

- "...- Sporting director Gianni Paladini was charged with finding an English-speaking manager who understood the Championship and Dowie appeared to tick the relevant boxes. But even before a ball was kicked in anger in August, there was friction over who should play in goal: Briatore pulled rank to insist that close-season signing Radek Cerny was preferred to the keeper in residence, Lee Camp.- The Italian said: "The coach criticised me over Cerny. I said I thought he was the best keeper in the Championship. I tried to make him understand what we wanted but it was very difficult..."

Ben Kosky/Kilburn Times wrote last year
"....The window for loan transfers reopened earlier this week and Rangers will allow Camp to move on the understanding that Forest buy him at the end of the season.
It brings an end to a baffling saga in which Camp - a consistent performer and popular figure with the Loftus Road crowd throughout his three spells at the club - was frozen out on the orders of co-owner Flavio Briatore.
Briatore instructed sporting director Gianni Paladini to ship Camp out last autumn, even though former manager Iain Dowie stated that he wanted the keeper to challenge Cerny for his place between the posts.
It was made clear to Camp that he would only play for Rangers again in an emergency - and that proved to be the case when the Czech number one strained his hamstring at the end of last month."
