Phil Parkinson to Be Appointed Manager of Wrexham Football Club
Wrexham has been put well and truly back in the spotlight following the takeover of the football club by Hollywood stars Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds. It promises to be an exciting pre-season ahead of a hugely anticipated campaign at the Racecourse Ground.
The big announcement is expected to come this week with Wrexham set to reveal the new manager ahead of the club’s 14th season in non-league. Phil Parkinson, who has been in charge at a number of clubs including Bradford City, Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland, is the current bookmakers favourite to land the job but there are a number of names in the frame. As soon as the new man is is place, you’d expect a steady stream of new signings ahead of the National League campaign kicking off on the 21st August 2021.
Dean Keates’ successor will also have to unveil the Reds’ pre-season schedule. The Reds are heading to the United States of America for the first time to play in a friendly against Philadelphia Union at Subaru Park at the end of July as part of a five day training camp, but more games will take place closer to home. The players return for pre-season training next week and on the 7th July 2021, the National League fixtures will be released.
