EXECUTIVE director Humphrey Ker has provided supporters with an update regarding the search for a new manager.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The Wrexham AFC board is committed to returning the club to the EFL at the earliest opportunity and are currently running a process to find a manager who will be best suited to achieve this objective.

"We have a formal process in place and are hugely encouraged by the quality of the candidates who have put themselves forward already.

"However, we are disturbed by the abuse aimed at potential candidates on social media and would like to apologise to them on behalf of the club.

"As the overwhelming majority of our fans will agree - this type of behaviour is not welcome at Wrexham AFC and we will continue to work with the rest of football to make online abuse a thing of the past."
