The bookmakers favourite for the vacant Wrexham AFC manager job appears to have been ruled out by his employers.

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association say they have ‘taken note of the contents of reports emanating out of Wrexham’ that point to their National Senior Men’s Team head coach Dennis Lawrence being the top tip for the local job.

In a statement tonight they said: “The TTFA wishes to state that it has no intentions of allowing its current employee, Mr Lawrence, to engage in discussions with the club regarding the possibilities of a move and a subsequent step down from his position as Head Coach of the Men’s Senior National Team.

Indicating Dennis Lawrence himself is onboard with that position, despite unconfirmed rumours he has been in the Wrexham area recently, they add: “The FA has engaged in discussions with Mr Lawrence on this matter and is pleased to have his understanding and cooperation.”

Slightly bizarrely for a national football association, they also give a quick break down of the current betting odds for the job, including other potential candidates John Barnes (6/1), John Askey 8/1, Darren Ferguson and Dave Challinor (16/1), Kevin Nolan and Andy Morrell (20/1). Other notable names linked include Craig Bellamy and Harry Kewell (25/1), Brian McDermott and Ian Holloway (33/1).
