Some football managers have years of experience managing players.
Some are expert in applying sports science to their training programmes.
Very few have skills in both.
That is what makes Danny and Nicky Cowley unique.
They know how to look after their charges both physically and mentally.
Individual fitness regimes, special diets and the right lifestyle all go towards making the Lincoln City footballers some of the fittest in the National League and beyond, as proved against higher-league opposition recently.
A democratic management style that allows player participation has gone a long way to creating a team spirit second to none.
The formula the two brothers have adopted is working. Results and performances prove that.
The major outcome of this combination is silverware.
I firmly believe that the Lincoln City trophy cabinet will have one or two more additions this season.
