Everyone at the club would like to thank Gary for his endeavours during his time at Wrexham AFC, having arrived at the Racecourse with the reputation of his teams playing open, attacking and attractive football, and previous success in gaining promotion from the Conference League.

This was a difficult decision but despite some exciting and entertaining football last season, our main priority is promotion back to the Football League and we have not made the progress expected towards that aim, falling short of the play off places last season, and currently out of touch with the table leaders with a third of the season already gone.

We have therefore made the difficult decision that a change is needed.

– Wrexham FC statement

All other staff remain unaffected by this change, the club confirmed.

Joey Jones, Andy Davies and Dean Keates will take charge of team affairs in the short-term.

It's been a turbulent season so far for Welsh football clubs after Swansea City, Cardiff City and Newport County all announced they have parted ways with their managers.

Bradley succeeded Francesco Guidolin as Swansea boss last week with the club only outside the relegation places on goal difference.

The Premier League's first American manager could not have asked for a tougher baptism on Saturday with Arsenal having won seven of their last eight games in all competitions.

Taylor has had to wait to meet Bradley as he has been away on international duty with Wales, but the left-back admits positive reports have been reaching him from the Swansea training ground.

He strives to get the best out of players is the word coming out, and the lads have said training has been really good. He looks a really exciting manager. He looks up for it and backs his ability as a manager."

"Hopefully from here onwards we can pick up results because that is what matters in the Premier League. He looks very motivated and that is great for the players. We can feed off him and we need to use that to pick up results, that is obvious now."

Ben Davies: Wales can't afford to slip up against Serbia next month

Ben Davies admits Wales cannot afford to slip up against Serbia next month if they are to keep their World Cup dream alive.

Wales lost ground on the road to Russia on Sunday when little-fancied Georgia drew 1-1 at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The draw dropped Wales from top to third place in Group D and two points behind Serbia and the Republic of Ireland.

Group leaders Serbia are Wales' next opponents in Cardiff on November 12, and Tottenham defender Davies admits the game has taken on extra significance after the Dragons dropped two points against Georgia.

It's definitely a big game now. It's one we really have to get something out of. It's a game we really need to get ourselves together for. We have to look back at what went wrong and rectify it.

It's obviously about bouncing back now. But it's still early days in the campaign and it (the Georgia result) just means we are going to have to take points off one of the so-called bigger boys in the group.

We are a better side than we showed against Georgia. It's not a great result but we can't afford to dwell on it. It is easy to say, but we have to go away and focus and get ready for the next one.

– Ben Davies, Wales International
