Nine points from nine sees Paul pick up award
Paul Lambert has been named as the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month for September.
The Blues boss was selected as the winner by a judging panel, after Town won all three of their League games last month.
He beat off the challenge of Michael Appleton [Lincoln City], Grant McCann [Hull City] and Darren Moore [Doncaster Rovers].
Town were one of three teams to pick up nine points from nine in their first three matches, along with Hull and Lincoln City.
Victories came against Wigan, Bristol Rovers and Rochdale - all of which finished 2-0.
"It's a joint effort from the staff and the players," Paul told iFollow Ipwich. "Without the players and staff, you don't really get anything like that so big thanks go to them.
"I'm at the forefront of it but without everybody pulling together, these sort of things don't tend to come around too often."
