Ex-Swansea defender Rickets named Wrexham manager

Former Swansea City defender Sam Ricketts has been named manager of Wrexham.

The Red Dragons have been searching for a new boss since Dean Keates left the Racecourse to join Walsall back in March.

Former Swansea City defender Ricketts is the man who has been tasked with spearheading the club's promotion bid for the 2018-19 campaign.

Ricketts won 52 caps for the national side and played for Oxford United, Nuneaton Borough, Telford United, Swansea, Hull City, Bolton Wanderers, Wolves, Swindon Town and Coventry City during his club career.

The 36-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the Red Dragons.
