Ex-Wrexham striker sets Ryan Reynolds ambitious deadline to reach the Premier League
| Last updated
Wrexham are back in the Football League after a 15-year wait - and one former player hopes they can reach the Premier League in less than half that time.
With the quality Wrexham possess including the likes of Paul Mullin, Elliot Lee and James McClean, the Racecourse Ground side will fancy their chances at gaining promotion to League One at the end of the campaign.
Of course, the club's profile has sky rocketed in recent years thanks to the new co-ownership of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
With the success the club has already experienced and the finances at their disposal, supporters have higher expectations than ever as they continue their ascent through the English football leagues.
And the ambition for any club will surely to be in the Premier League one day, with one former Wrexham striker hoping it can be achieved in the next five years.
Brett Ormerod scored 13 goals in 79 appearances for the club across two seasons when the Dragons were playing non-league football.
And Ormerod hopes that his old club can be in at least the Championship and possibly even the top flight within the next five years.
Speaking to Stocklytics, Ormerod said: "Hopefully, I'd like to see them in the Championship or Premier League in five years.
"The owners are ambitious enough to get there. They've always had the right fanbase and now they have the might of the Americans.
"Where Wrexham end up depends on where the owners want to take it. I wish them all the best because the fans have been through a lot of pain.
"I remember being there when the bills weren't being paid and they were being threatened to be kicked out of the ground.
