Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce the immediate appointment of Andy Lowe as Academy Manager.
Lowe arrives from Hartlepool United, where he was academy manager and is a vastly educated figure within youth football, with more than two decades’ experience working within football.
The 42-year-old is well positioned to reform the Club’s academy in line with our aims and objectives as outlined in the summer, having worked within EPPP and PGAAC guidelines during his time with the Pools.
Speaking about the appointment, Andy Lowe said: “I am delighted and honoured to have been given the opportunity to become Academy Manager at Wrexham AFC and I really look forward to establishing an EFL academy with the Club.
“It has been fantastic to see the positive feel the re-introduction of the academy has brought within the Club in recent weeks. There is a real buzz, and it has been very evident to see in such a short period of time what the club means to so many people.
“A lot of hard work goes into setting up an academy and this is an extremely exciting project for the Football Club, myself, and young people in the local and surrounding areas.
“With the team of full-time staff assembled in recent weeks we have already laid some solid foundations which will create a long-term programme that will develop the Wrexham players of the future.’
Wrexham AFC CEO Fleur Robinson added: “We are delighted to welcome Andy to the Football Club as we take on the task of building up the academy in line with our well-stated ambitions of building an infrastructure capable of nurturing North Wales’ finest talents.
“This Football Club has a proud history of developing home-grown players, and I’d like to welcome Andy and all the new full-time academy staff to Wrexham as we build to continue this proud tradition into the future too in line with the new academy structure.”
