SPENCER HARRIS says Wrexham's board of directors will "move as quickly as we can" to appoint a new manager.

Bryan Hughes was sacked on Wednesday following the poor start to the National League season which left Wrexham in the relegation zone and winless in eight games.

Brian Flynn, assistant to Hughes, previously enjoyed a successful 12 year spell in charge at The Racecourse and has been placed in temporary charge for two games, and his 'reign' began with a 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Ebbsfleet United at The Racecourse on Saturday.

Dean Keates, another former Wrexham chief, and Connah's Quay Nomads boss Andy Morrison, are among the names linked with the vacant position but Harris would not comment on individuals.

"Every appointment at Wrexham is a big appointment," said Harris.

"It is a very expectant club and with the investment we made in the summer, Bryan has brought some very good players to the club.

"We kept the players from last season who possibly contributed the most so to find ourselves where we are is extremely disappointing for everybody."

Flynn will again take the reigns at Solihull Moors tomorrow night but Wrexham could have a new manager in place ahead of Saturday's trip to Woking.

Harris would like to appoint a new manager as soon as possible but would not reveal whether Flynn or first team coach Carl Darlington will remain at the club.

"It is important that we move as quickly as we can to get whoever that person is going to be in place so that they have the best opportunity to affect the season," said Harris.

"Whenever you make a change of manager it is an unsettling time for everybody.

"We have got really good staff here, all of them have got Wrexham's best interests at heart but we have got to get a manager in first before we make a decision about what the future could be."

Flynn says Hughes passed on his well wishes ahead of the clash with Ebbsfleet where substitute Paul Rutherford's brilliant strike secured a much needed win.

"On a personal note I am obviously very disappointed and sad for Bryan because we are good friends," said Flynn.

"When something like that happens to a new manager it is difficult.

"I have spoken to him quite a few times and his message was I hope you do well and get a result, and that is what we have done.

"A boring 1-0 - I am happy with that!"

Victory took Wrexham out of the relegation zone and the Reds head to Solihull tomorrow night for their game in hand with uncertainty hanging over who will be the new Wrexham manager.

Flynn refused to rule himself out of the running.

"Everybody is a caretaker manager, I was caretaker for 12 years," said Flynn.

"If they offered me 12 years, I might consider it!

"Look, the board has asked me to look after it for two games, let's see what happens after Tuesday.

"They haven't discussed anything planned with me at the moment, I am sure that will happen in the next couple of days and following Solihull.

"Let's get these two games sorted, six points and happy days! Ask me the same question on Wednesday."

On the departure of Hughes, who made him his right-hand man in February, Flynn added: "It was his first job and obviously he wanted to do well.

"He had 12 games this season. I had 12 years, I still got booed.

"It was a difficult week for all concerned but the players responded well by getting the result."
