After receiving a fresh new start at the executive level, Wrexham AFC is set for a fresh new start from a managerial level as former manager Dean Keates was let go.
Mr Keates’ termination was announced on 30th May after placing eighth narrowly missing the cut of the National League Playoffs that could have seen the third oldest football in club return to the Football League.
Mr Keats has now had two unsuccessful stints as Wrexham manager. The first came as a replacement for the ousted Gary Mills and left with just nine games remaining of the 2017-18 season, dooming Wrexham to miss the playoffs then as well.
Since Sunday, Wrexham, now owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob MecElhenney, has made some significant moves, starting with the appoi ntment of Les Reed, former technical director of the FA, as an advisor to the Board of Directors.
His first job will be to oversee the appointment of a new manager with the potential to bring the club back into the AFC.
Casey Stoney, former championship-winning manager of Manchester United’s women’s team was initially linked to the club, which would have made her the first female football manager in the English game at a professional level.
Whilst she remains a favourite with the bookmakers, targeted online abuse has forced Wrexham to make a statement condemning the abhorrent behaviour of the perpetrators.
Other names rumoured for the Wrexham job include former Manchester United player and Manchester City manager Mark Hughes, and former Port Vale head John Askey.
