Sam Ricketts says fans have got a huge part to play as he begins his journey for success at Wrexham.
The former Wales international, appointed Wrexham’s new manager on a three year contract, will be at the helm when the Reds kick-off an 11th season in non-league. It is his first managerial position – Ricketts was Wolves u16 lead coach before his arrival at The Racecourse – and he becomes the latest man tasked with trying to end Wrexham’s Football League exile dating back to 2008.
Ricketts has already been impressed by the devotion shown by supporters, with Wrexham a fan-owned club. and he says backing his players on the pitch will be as crucial as ever come August’s kick-off.
“The fans are everything at every single club and the fans own this club,” said Ricketts. “We are nothing without the fans; they support the club and they work at the club.
“On the pitch we need the fans to drive us to be successful. When things are going great it is brilliant, everyone is happy.
“You can’t be perfect every game, it is those moments where when the fans get behind you and drive the team on, it might just make a difference from a loss to a draw, a draw to a win.”
