Terry Darracott has quit as Wrexham assistant manager due to his long-standing hip problem.The 59-year-old has been Dean Saunders' right-hand-man since the former Wales international striker took over at the Blue Square Premier side last October. [LNB]"Because of a hip problem I've got I just felt I couldn't do the job," Darracott told the Wrexham website. [LNB]Former Racecourse boss Brian Carey will step up from his role as first team coach to become Saunders' number two. [LNB]Former Everton and Wrexham left-back Darracott will return to his old role as European scout for Premier League side Bolton Wanderers. [LNB]"I've had both my knees replaced during my career and for the first time in my life it's time I take a step aside and look after myself a bit more," said Darracott. [LNB]"So I'm going to get it sorted and go back to what I was doing before, working as a scout at Bolton. [LNB]"I feel that's going to be more manageable for me than being out on the training field with the players." [LNB]Saunders said he was "disappointed" to lose the services of "a great man and a good friend."
