Phil Parkinson appointed Wrexham manager
Wrexham have appointed former Bradford City, Colchester, Bolton and Sunderland manager Phil Parkinson as their new manager on a 12 month rolling contract.
Parkinson left his role at Sunderland last November after just over a year in charge at the League One club.
Speaking to Wrexham’s website, the former Bradford City boss said:
“Once the plans of the chairmen were explained to me, the decision to join Wrexham was very easy. Wrexham are an EFL club in all but the one thing that matters, league status, and we have a very clear objective, with the work starting immediately.
“The club didn’t need selling to me, it sold itself, and I wanted to be part of the journey this club is about to embark upon.”
