Brian Flynn believes Sam Ricketts will make a success of his first senior management position.

Former Wales international Ricketts, 36, is set to be appointed as the new manager of Wrexham today. Ricketts was a vastly experienced defender who played for the likes of Oxford United, Swansea City, Hull City, Bolton Wanderers, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Coventry City, as well as winning 52 caps for his country, before hanging up his boots in November 2016 because of a knee injury.

Ricketts has been coaching in the youth set-up at Wolves but is expected to be unveiled as Wrexham boss at a press conference today. Flynn, who was manager at The Racecourse between 1989 and 2001, says Ricketts is a good choice and believes he can make the most of his opportunity.

“Sam has had a taste of it and knows what is required,” said Flynn. “This is his senior chance and I am sure he will be able to cope.

“He is going to be a really good choice. It is good for him and good for the club. Everyone needs a bit of luck and I am sure he can achieve it (promotion).”
