His best period when it came to games won was at cash-strapped Notts County where he took over in February 2010 and saw the club crowned Champions in April 2010. In total Cotterill has managed 8 clubs including Shrewsbury.  

Danny Cowley

After impressing Lincoln City where his side won the National League, League 2 and the EFL Trophy in three seasons Cowley has not faired as well in his subsequent roles at Huddersfield and  Portsmouth. 

He has only been out of day-to-day management of a club since the end of January 2023.
