Graham Barrow commits future to Wrexham

Wrexham have looked to shore up the future of Assistant Manager Graham Barrow by tying him down to a new two and a half year deal.  

The National League promotion chasers, who are currently without a manager, have placed Barrow in temporary charge of first team affairs following the departure of Sam Ricketts to Shrewsbury Town at the start of the week.

The experienced coach, who has held roles at a range of clubs including the likes of AFC Fylde, Chester, Wigan Athletic and Rochdale, was also in the dugout for the Dragons’ FA Cup tie with Newport County on Saturday, after Ricketts was advised not to attended.

Speaking to Wrexham’s official club website, Barrow said, “It was never in any doubt in my mind. My main concern has been the players and the club. I’m happy the people in charge and the fans feel the same way.

”The players are still in good spirits. Nothing has really changed for me. Looking back at my career in football I have been through these situations before.

“I’m very happy at Wrexham. I’m very happy to be staying here. This club has so much passion around it. I remember going for an early morning walk around Portugal during our pre-season stay there and seeing all of the flags everywhere. It’s an amazing club with passionate people around it.

“I hear the voices of the supporters every week, there is always a buzz around the place. It’s why I’m in football. I’m going to carry on doing the best I can for Wrexham now and that’s all I’m concerned about.”

Barrow is expected to still be in interim charge when Wrexham face Eastleigh at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday.
