Wrexham caretaker manager Andy Davies has left the club to become assistant manager at League One Walsall.

Davies spent 25 years at Wrexham and took charge after ex-boss Dean Keates became Walsall boss, but has since been replaced by Sam Ricketts.

Wrexham missed out on a play-off spot after they picked up just three points in their final seven games.

"Andy has served his hometown team with distinction," said the club.

First team coach Carl Darlington has extended his contract until 2020.

"As a Wrexham fan, I'm delighted to commit to a new deal and be part of the team," said Darlington.
