Sam Ricketts admits his assistant manager must “tick a lot of boxes” as he takes his time over an appointment.

The former Wales international, unveiled as the new Wrexham boss on a three-year deal, is looking for a right-hand man after Andy Davies left to link up with former Reds boss Dean Keates at Walsall. Previously lead coach with Wolves U16s, Ricketts has taken up his his first managerial position at The Racecourse and says the successful candidate has a crucial role to play as Wrexham head into an 11th season in non-league.

“A number of people will be interested but like with players, I have to make a decision that is right for me and the club,” said Ricketts. “I am very specific in what I want and do not expect an imminent appointment.

“I know what I want, I want an awful lot. He has got to tick a lot of boxes and I have to make sure it is right for us to be successful.

“I am not just going to appoint the first person.”
