Keates Delighted to Reunite With Andy Davies

2:37 pm Thursday, 10 May 2018
Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to club journalists following the news that long-serving Wrexham coach Andy Davies has joined the club, and welcomed his new assistant's arrival.
39-year-old, Wrexham-born Davies spent over twenty-five years at the Racecourse Ground, starting out as a schoolboy, before rising through the ranks to eventually turning his hand to coaching. Andy would go on to held roles as Youth Team Coach and Centre of Excellence Manager before being promoted to Dean Keates’ assistant in October 2016.

Following Keates' arrival at Walsall earlier this year Andy would be named as Wrexham's caretaker manager as the side looked to continue their push towards promotion back to the English Football League, a feat they failed to achieve after missing out on a spot in the Play-Offs.

Dean, speaking via the club's official website - Saddlers.co.uk - said; "I went to Wrexham when I was 32 so I’ve known Andy nearly eight years. From watching how he worked with the youth team and the academy, he has always been a great coach.

"When I was placed in caretaker charge at Wrexham, he stepped up to help me for the first few games. I then got the job permanently and I decided straight away that I wanted to keep him on. He’s someone I’ve enjoyed working with and, as soon as I got the job here, he was always going to follow."
