Andy Davies says it is important Wrexham appoint a new manager as soon as possible to give the players, both in and out of contract, some clarity.

Wrexham’s search for a new boss began following Dean Keates ’s decision to join League One side Walsall last month. Davies was promoted from Keates’ assistant to manager until the end of the season along with coach Carl Darlington, however it has not worked out for the duo as the Dragons have claimed just six points from a possible 24 since Keates’ exit, and have lost four of their last five to drop to 10th in the National League and in need of a miracle to claim a play-off spot on the final weekend of the season.

The current chief has previously intimated he is not in the running for the job on a permanent basis, but with just eight players on contract at the Racecourse beyond the summer – Shaun Pearson , Manny Smith , Kevin Roberts, James Jennings , Leo Smith , Akil Wright, Sam Wedgbury and Nicky Deverdics – Davies says it is vital a decision on the new man is made quickly.

“The club are in the process of trying to appoint a new manager, that is underway, but I don’t know where that is up to,” said Davies. I think they have openly said they want to appoint a manager as soon as possible, whether that is next week or the week after, but it will be as soon as possible.”
