Morrell The Man For Wrexham FC

Wrexham FC have appointed Andy Morrell as full time manager until the end of the season. The 37 year old former Wrexham player had been in caretaker charge following Dean Saunders’ departure for Doncaster Rovers. Morrell was, ironically, born in Doncaster, and is well thought of among fans of the North Wales club after making more than a hundred appearances in two spells with the club.

Since taking temporary charge on September 23rd 2011, Morrell has overseen an impressive run of seven wins and a draw from nine games, and has led the club into the FA Cup First Round with a 2-1 over York City. Since he took over, Wrexham FC have gone from joint top with three other clubs to outright leaders of the Blue Square Premier with a two point cushion. They have also kept five clean sheets in their last six league games.

The appointment had been delayed due to a prospective takeover of the club by the Wrexham Supporter’s Trust, who had understandably said that they wanted to bring in their own man. However, they gave their unequivocal backing to Morrell’s appointment following the run of form under his stewardship. This should mean a degree of stability when the takeover does eventually go through, and the club can look forward to a bright new future with a young manager who knows the club.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
