Moyes claimed the honour after the Toffees remained unbeaten in the month with three victories and two draws in the Barclays Premier League.

Moyes' side continued their strong form since the turn of the year with a convincing 5-1 home win over Hull City in their first March fixture and followed up with a battling point in a 2-2 draw away to Birmingham City.

After a comfortable 2-0 home success against Bolton Wanderers, Everton then travelled to Manchester City, putting in a hugely impressive performance in a 2-0 win at Eastlands.

Despite a 0-0 stalemate away to Wolves at the end of the month, the Toffees are now right on the heels of their rivals for European qualification, and will be looking to maintain their momentum as the Barclays Premier League season reaches its climax.

This is the seventh time that David Moyes has won the Barclays Manager of the Month Award since he took control at Goodison Park in 2002.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.
