Reds legend Brian Flynn will take charge of Wrexham AFC for the next two games, the club have confirmed.

The 63-year-old was appointed as assistant manager to Bryan Hughes in February.

Following the sacking of Hughes on Wednesday night, Flynn will take interim charge for Saturday's home match against Ebbsfleet and next Tuesday's trip to Solihull Moors.

Former Wales international Flynn was appointed player-manager of Wrexham in 1989 and led the Reds to a promotion, as well as numerous FA Cup upsets, before leaving in 2001.

A club statement said: "Further to last night's statement regarding the departure of Bryan Hughes, Wrexham AFC can confirm that assistant manager Brian Flynn will take interim charge for the next two games.

"Brian will be supported by the existing back-room staff."
