Following media reports the Board of Directors would like to provide a progress report regarding selection of the new first
team manager position at Wrexham AFC.
Following the departure of Kevin Wilkin, we received circa 80 applicants for the position of first team manager for
consideration. Our search priority was to find a new manager who would play an exciting brand of football and enable us to challenge for promotion again next season.
These criteria were fully met by Gary Mills whose extensive knowledge of the league and promotion made him an ideal
candidate. Significant progress has been made in our discussions with Gary and we will be holding a press conference at 6PM today confirming his appointment prior to his departure for a family holiday.
We would like to thank Gateshead FC and their chairman Graham Wood for the professional way in which they have dealt with our approach.
