Wrexham Football Club Appoint Brian Flynn As Assistant Manager
Wrexham Football Club have this afternoon announced that Brian Flynn has returned to the club as assistant manager to Bryan Hughes and he joins the clubs backroom staff with immediate effect. He will bring a wealth of experience to the management team as well as support the manager in our quest for promotion back to the Football League.
Flynn, is of course a familiar face at the Racecourse Ground having enjoyed a twenty one year playing career including 100 Football League appearances for Wrexham becoming player/manager in 1989. He went on to manage the club for twelve years making him the third longest longest serving manager in British football most notably just behind Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
Brian was of course manager during our famous FA Cup giant killing over Arsenal, leading the club to the quarter-finals of the competition, he won the Welsh Cup, The FAW Premier Cup three times and led the club in the ‘European Cup Winners Cup’ whilst winning the club promotion to League One in 1993.
He later went on to manage Swansea City, Wales Under 21’s and briefly the Welsh Senior side, before replacing Dean Saunders at Doncaster Rovers and leading them to promotion as Sky Bet League One Champions, before taking up the role of ‘Director of Football’ in the Championship side. More recently Brian has been working as a scout for Swansea City before returning full circle to re-join the Dragons’ promotion hunt.
Speaking about returning to the Dragons Brian Flynn said, “I am delighted to return and support Bryan Hughes as manager at a club that is very special to me. I am coming in at an exciting time and my immediate focus will be looking to help the manager and the club build momentum over the last couple of months of the season. I have some unfinished business at the club and would love nothing better than to help the club back to the Football League.”
