Wrexham AFC confirm Graham Barrow as their new manager.

He joined in the Summer of 2018 and since the departure of their previous manager, Sam Ricketts, Barrow has been in interim charge at the Racecourse.

The 64-year-old has previously managed Wigan Athletic, Chester and Bury in the past. He was also a member of Wigan’s coaching team whilst Roberto Martinez was in charge.

He agreed to extend his contract for a further two-and-a-half years, and initially stated that he did not want the manager’s job on a permanent basis. His contract will expire Summer of 2021.

In a statement released by the board, “Graham has impressed everyone since joining us in the summer and, along with the current backroom staff, has been a massive part of a great start to the season.”

Barrow’s first game in charge of Wrexham, who are fourth in the National League, will be away to Aldershot on Saturday.
