Mark Carrington says manager Sam Ricketts has shown he is a born winner and eager to be a success with Wrexham.

Former Wales international Ricketts has taken over his first managerial role at The Racecourse and welcomed his players back for pre-season training this week.

A vastly experienced defender who played for the likes of Oxford, Swansea City, Hull, Bolton Wanderers, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Coventry, Ricketts also won 52 caps for his country before hanging up his boots in November 2016 because of a knee injury.

Carrington says it is evident that Ricketts, who was Wolves U16s lead coach before taking charge of Wrexham, played at a high level and he believes the 36-year-old won’t let his standards drop as a manager.

“He has been really good,” said Carrington. “The sessions have been good and I think everyone is enjoying it.

“He has been really good around the place, he seems nice and relaxed, and just wants to get the best out of the lads.

“You can see that he has been a top player, he has played at the highest level, and you can see that in him where he just wants to be the best at everything he does.”
