Parkinson celebrates with his Colchester side at Huish Park in 2006

National League side Wrexham have made something of a statement signing today in the dugout announcing that former Bolton and Sunderland manager Phil Parkinson as their new head coach.

Parkinson who has also had spells in charge of Colchester, Charlton, Bradford and Hull put pen to paper on a 12-month rolling contract at the Hollywood-backed Welsh side.

Lancashire-born Parkinson has achieved promotions with Bradford and Colchester in the past as a manager, including securing promotion to the Championship with a 0-0 draw at Huish Park in the 2005/06 season.

In total, the Glovers have faced Parkinson seven times in the opposition dug out, winning two, drawing two and losing three.
