Wrexham squad make ambitious request to owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney after promotion confirmed

Another year, another party for Wrexham.

The Wrexham squad have made a cheeky request to their Hollywood owners following their back-to-back promotions sending them to the heights of League 2 next season.

Wrexham went into the weekend’s match knowing that victory could see them earn promotion to the third tier for the first ever time, as well as relegating their opponents Forest Green Rovers.

MK Dons needed to win to deny the Welsh side, but despite taking the lead against Mansfield they were eventually comprehensively defeated 4-1.

Wrexham meanwhile did exactly what they needed to do and they did so in style, battering Forest Green 6-0 securing their historic promotion to League 1.

It was quite the party atmosphere at the Racecourse with fans flooding the pitch at full-time to celebrate.

The victory marks the latest achievement in their success story under Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, who assumed control in 2021.

In appreciation of their National League triumph last season, the owners treated the winning squad to a lavish trip to Las Vegas, where they were reportedly “treated like royalty,” according to Wrexham star Ben Tozer via talkSPORT.

Tozer also confirmed the squad are hoping for another lavish celebration, and they have already cheekily let Reynolds and McElhenney know of their expectations.

“I mean, all we’ve said to them is, ‘Try and top last year if you can!’ That’s it,” Tozer joked.

When asked on whether Wrexham can go three for three next season, the 34-year-old was quietly confident of their chances but didn’t want the squad to get too far ahead of themselves.

“I don’t see why the club can’t but at the same time, let’s just enjoy this one while it’s here and take the next one as it comes,” He explained.

Tozer wasn’t the only player to joke about what their superstar owners might have in store, with Elliott Lee being asked on the topic directly after the Forest Green game.

“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,” He told BBC Sport.
