Wrexham star makes cheeky request to Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney after promotion from League Two

Wrexham gained automatic promotion to League One by beating Forest Green 6-0.

Wrexham star Elliot Lee made one request to co-owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney after the club secured automatic promotion on League Two.

The Red Dragons went into Saturday knowing they would play third tier football for the first time in 19 years if they beat bottom side Forest Green, while third-placed Mansfield needed to beat fourth-placed MK Dons.

Wrexham upheld their side of the bargain, going 3-0 up at the Racecourse Ground inside the opening 35 minutes.

But for the opening half hour of their contest, Mansfield were losing at MK Dons before an equaliser from defender Elliott Hewitt put Wrexham in provisional pole position.

And Nigel Clough’s side completely turned things around in the second half to win 4-1, while Wrexham completed a 6-0 thrashing of their opposition, who are now staring National League football in the face.

Fortunately for Wrexham supporters, the drama had dwindled to zero by full time with the outcome inevitable, and there were scenes of jubilation among fans at full time.

You can see some of the celebrations below.

Former West Ham academy graduate Lee has played a key role in the promotion triumph, scoring 16 goals and providing four assists in 44 League Two appearances.

He signed a new contract with Wrexham on New Year’s Day, alongside star striker Paul Mullin, with the agreements keeping both players at the club until 2027.

That means the midfielder can firmly focus on the club’s return to League One – although did have one request for Reynolds and McElhenney for the off season.

Speaking to BBC Sport Wales after the 6-0 win, he announced: “I don’t know if they’ve messaged anyone yet. We usually get a message from Ryan after a game so I’m sure he’ll message soon enough – they both will, to be fair.

“We’ve just told them to fire up the jet for Vegas!”

Wrexham visited Vegas last year following their promotion from the National League, and it looks like another trip might follow…
