Last month, Cushing's City took six points from two of the toughest opponents in the WSL, Arsenal and Birmingham City, meaning we finished the calendar year level on points with the North London club, at the top of the league.
On receiving the trophy, Cushing said: "Thank you to the LMA panel for naming me the Women’s Super League Manager of the Month for December. I would also like to thank all the staff and players at Manchester City, who I could not have done this without.”
Chair of the League Managers Association panel Marieanne Spacey-Cale said: “Nick Cushing and his Manchester City team achieved two outstanding wins in December, which could prove pivotal in their challenge to win the Women’s Super League this season.
“The 2-0 victory over Arsenal means that City are now the only unbeaten side in the league and the tight 1-0 win over a strong Birmingham City side allowed them to close the gap at the top of the WSL, going in to the second half of the season.”
