Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney receive special honour after Wrexham promotion

All aboard the Wrexham Express to Hollywood.

Wrexham's Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have received a special honour after the North Wales side clinched promotion to League One.

The Hollywood-backed giants made sure they would be going up for the second season running by thrashing Forest Green Rovers 6-0.

Ever since they were taken over by the two Holywood actors it's been nothing but success for the now globally supported Welsh club.

The Red Dragons returned to the Football League last year after a 15-year absence thanks to a record-breaking National League title victory.

The success has also been filmed with an FX documentary dedicated to their rise already in its second series.

Owners Reynolds and McElhenney couldn't be present at Wrexham's promotion-winning game, but they have been honoured for their 'positive work' and impact in the local area which has included helping local businesses.

Transport for Wales has named two trains after the home cities of the stars, The Vancouver Red Dragon and Philadelphia Robin, as per Sky News.

They were unveiled by Welsh First Minister Vaughan Gething and Ken Skates, the Cabinet Secretary for Transport and North Wales, ahead of the home game against Stockport.

"Rob and Ryan have put an incredible amount into the community and it's fantastic that their contribution is being recognised with the new trains, which I'm sure every Wrexham fan will want to travel on whenever they can," Mr Gething explained.

In preparation for their League One campaign next season, Wrexham are heading back to North America on a pre-season tour and will play games against Bournemouth, Chelsea and Vancouver Whitecaps.

Their rise has attracted a lot of attention from the USA and Canada with several games broadcast on ESPN.

Although promotion has been secured it isn't the end of the story as Wrexham have bold ambitions to go even further.

Could we see them in the Premier League one day?
