Wrexham Football Club Secures Promotion to English Soccer's Third Division


Wrexham Football Club, co-owned by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, achieved a momentous feat as they clinched promotion to English soccer's third division following a commanding 6-0 victory over Forest Green on Saturday. This triumph marks the team's second consecutive promotion since the high-profile investment by the celebrity duo, propelling them closer to the esteemed Premier League.

The Welsh club's journey to success has been nothing short of remarkable, with Reynolds expressing his exhilaration on social media, referring to it as "the ride of our lives." Wrexham's promotion was secured through a combination of their dominant performance on the pitch and favorable results from other matches in the league.

The pivotal match against Forest Green saw Wrexham assert their dominance from the outset, surging to a commanding 4-0 lead by halftime. This commanding display left little doubt about their determination to secure automatic promotion to League One. Despite pre-game warnings from the club urging fans to remain in their seats, jubilant supporters flooded the field in celebration after the final whistle, underscoring the significance of this achievement for the club and its dedicated fanbase.

In addition to Wrexham's victory, the team benefited from losses by MK Dons and Barrow, further solidifying their position in the promotion spots. With Wrexham comfortably occupying the second spot in League Two, they are now four points behind the leaders, Stockport. As the top three teams in the league earn automatic promotion to the next division, Wrexham's advancement is all but assured, with fourth-placed MK Dons unable to catch up.

Reynolds and McElhenney's acquisition of the relatively obscure club for $2.5 million in 2021 has undoubtedly rejuvenated Wrexham, propelling them back into the spotlight of English football. Their bold investment has not only revitalized the club but has also captured the imagination of fans worldwide. Last season, Wrexham's triumphant campaign saw them clinch the National League title, marking their return to the English Football League after a 15-year absence. This season's consecutive promotion is a historic achievement for the club, marking the first time in its 159-year history that it has earned promotion in two consecutive seasons.

Reflecting on the team's remarkable journey, Reynolds humorously remarked on social media, "A few years ago, if you told me I would be crying tears of joy over a football match taking place in North Wales, you would be Rob McElhenney." The actor-turned-owner extended his heartfelt congratulations to Wrexham and his fellow co-chairman, emphasizing the collective pride in the town's achievement.

The captivating story of Wrexham Football Club's resurgence has been chronicled in the documentary series "Welcome to Wrexham," providing fans with a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the club's transformation under the stewardship of Reynolds and McElhenney. The series has further endeared the club to supporters and has garnered widespread attention, cementing Wrexham's status as a symbol of hope and resilience in the world of football.

As Wrexham celebrates this historic milestone, anticipation builds for their next chapter in League One, where they will continue to strive for success and further solidify their position among English football's elite. With the unwavering support of their loyal fanbase and the visionary leadership of Reynolds and McElhenney, the future looks bright for Wrexham Football Club as they continue their pursuit of glory on the hallowed grounds of the English football league system.
