Brian Patrick Carey is currently on the coaching staff League Two side Wrexham, having been manager there between January and November 2007.
Brian Carey Started his career at Cork City F.C.,where he made a number of apperances as a young centre back. After several impressive displays, Carey signed for Manchester United in 1989, but four years later had still not made a first-team appearance despite being 25 years old. In November 1993, he was transferred to Leicester City but failed to win a regular first team place and within three years had been sold to Wrexham.
The former Wrexham captain's time at the Racecourse Ground spanned nine years, taking in one promotion, two relegations and an FA Cup quarter final. Following his retirement as a player through injury in July 2005, he remained at Wrexham as a coach.
He took up the reins at Wrexham following the shock departure of Denis Smith on 12 January 2007. This was originally on a temporary basis until the end of the season. Wrexham were in severe danger of relegation to the Conference, but survived after 3–1 win against relegation rivals Boston United on the final day of the season. Carey was offered a two year contract to manage Wrexham on a permament basis, which he accepted. After a poor start to the 2007–08 season, Carey was replaced by Brian Little, but remained on the club's coaching staff.
