As Wrexham sack boss Bryan Hughes after 12 games of the season, fans think there is no quick fix to the current predicament...

Having won only two of their first 12 games and sitting in the relegation zone, the Wrexham AFC board announced on Tuesday that manager Bryan Hughes has been relieved of his duties.

Reacting to the news, fans welcomed the club's decision - but believe further changes are needed at the club if they want to regain their position as a football league club.

Jamie Williams said: "Yes he had to go - if we kept him we would’ve got relegated.

"Saying that, we can’t just point fingers at the manager and something must be said about the board who went with cheap option."

Other fans have also pointed the finger at first team coach Carl Darlington - calling for his sacking as well.

Jamie Heath said: "Had to go - crowds were only going get lower.

"But if (Carl) Darlington doesn't go then it was pointless getting rid of Hughes as he is the main problem - our football is shocking. I've seen under 8s play better.

The Leader:

Fan Rob Taylor believes the problems at the club run far deeper than simply getting rid of Hughes.

He said: "It (the sacking) will solve nothing. There doesn't seem to be any urgency or ambition to get the club back in the football league.

"I know the supporters want it but see no sign of anyone else at the club showing any urgency.

"Wrexham was once a club feared by first division clubs in cup competitions and was looked upon as a great little club and probably the best in Wales at the time.

"Cardiff, Swansea and even Newport are ahead in the pecking order now.

"The loyal supporters deserve better than this and need a board who have the same ambitions as them. It's a travesty what has happened to this club and the Trust need to decide if they want league status or are just happy languishing on the fringes of the game."

Paul Parry added: "It was a a few games too late. Sad for such a good player but out of his depth as manager and failed to motivate the team."

Club legend Brian Flynn - who was assistant manager to Hughes - has taken over the reigns on an interim basis. He will be in charge of Saturday's home match against Ebbsfleet and next Tuesday's trip to Solihull Moors.

The Leader:

But Flynn's appointment has not gone down well with the fans.

Aaron Crofts said the club has 'plunged to new depths', while Daniel Edwards added: "I like Flynn, But Darlington with him I'm not sure."

Mark Jones said: "He was Hughes's assistant manager - he must have had some input on the signings Hughes made.

"He will get the job full time and wait for a statement like 'these are not my signings - judge me next season'. The club is a shambles."

Asked about who they want to see appointed manager in the long-run following Hughes's departure, the name that cropped up the most was that of Connah's Quay Nomads boss Andy Morrison.

Several fans called for the club to appoint the former Manchester City centre half who masterminded Nomads' shock Europa League win over Scottish Premier League Kilmarnock earlier this season.
