A former Burnley, Leeds United and Wales midfielder – Flynn is recognised as a man of devotion and honesty whose loyalty to Wrexham is legendary.

While still a player, Brian took over a club in danger of falling out of existence. Wrexham were bottom in his first season and only avoided dropping out of the League because of a temporary expansion to 93 clubs.

The following season saw a dramatic revival, including a famous FA Cup third round victory over defending First Division champions Arsenal.

In 1993 Wrexham were promoted from the bottom division and Flynn established his team at the higher level. Finally leaving the Racecourse Ground in 2001 – after 12 years, the club’s longest serving manager – Flynn resurfaced at Swansea City where he saved a struggling team from relegation with a 4-2 win over Hull City on the last day.

Today, Brian is manager of the Wales Under-21 team – a position he has held since 2004.
