Little signs new Wrexham contract

Manager Brian Little has vowed to revive Wrexham's fortunes

Brian Little has signed a new two-year deal to remain as Wrexham manager.

The Dragons are facing relegation from League Two and are seven points from safety with five games remaining.

But whether Wrexham avoid the drop to the Conference or not this season, Little has vowed to turn around the fortunes of the north Wales club.

"My job now is to really resurrect things on the field, irrespective what division we are in next year," Little told the club website.

"We still have a number of games in which to save ourselves.

"It is important from everybody's point of view to get some stability back here."

The 54-year-old former Aston Villa, Leicester and Tranmere boss took over at the Racecourse Ground in November, tasked with saving Wrexham from the drop.


Little's initial contract ran until the end of this season, but chairman Neville Dickens and his fellow directors have continued to show faith in their manager despite disappointing defeats.

"I would like to think there are some happy supporters on hearing this news, but I accept that some will be disappointed with results over the last three months," Little added.

"What I would say is that our current plight is something that has gone for the last three years and it is something we have tried hard to put right in a short space of time.

"To those supporters who might be a little critical of myself, I would say 'look, judge me on the team I put together next season'.

"My job is to build on the field of play and I'm looking forward to next season, irrespective of what happens in our last five games of this year, building an exciting, strong team that will be very competitive and successful.

"After the last few years, everybody deserves a team on the pitch that wins football matches and that's exactly what I'll be looking to try and do next season."
