the squad in the January transfer window, bringing a new mentality and approach
which has resulted in a surge up the table over recent weeks.
He brings a long and successful pedigree of football experience spanning
over twenty years and has won promotion six times with three clubs in that
Keates played over 150 times for Wrexham AFC as an outstanding captain and
has taken that professionalism and dedication into management.
Wrexham AFC Director Spencer Harris commented: “Extending Dean’s contract
for three and a half years is brilliant news for Wrexham AFC. In a short period
of time, Dean has stamped his authority on the team and along with his coaching
staff have brought a modern-day approach to coaching and player development. We
believe that approach will be very successful for the club.”
“Dean gets the football club and its fans and is working extremely hard on
taking us in the right direction. His approach is very much to get everybody
together as one team: fans, Board, staff and players to give us the very best
chance of success”.
