DEAN KEATES will not be offered another contract after Wrexham missed out on the National League play-offs.

The Reds failed to finish in the top-seven following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Dagenham and Redbridge and the club has been quick to act.

Keates returned for a second spell as Reds' boss in October 2019 but his contract expires at the end of the season and he has been informed that he will not be retained, along with his assistant manager, Andy Davies, and first team coach, Carl Darlington.

Co-Chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds said: “We would like to thank Dean, Andy and Carl for all their efforts on behalf of the Club, in what at times were challenging circumstances.

“We are committed to returning the Club to the EFL at the earliest opportunity and feel that a change of manager will provide us with the best chance of achieving that objective.

“Dean, Andy and Carl will always be welcome at the Club.”

The Club’s search for a new manager will commence with immediate effect.
