Rob McElhenney reveals what gift he'll give the Wrexham squad if they secure promotion from League One

Rob McElhenney reveals what gift he'll give the Wrexham squad if they secure promotion from League One

McElhenney has promised the Wrexham players a special reward.

Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney has revealed the gift he will give to his first team players if they get promoted from League One next season.

The Red Dragons have achieved two consecutive promotions from the National League under the stewardship of Phil Parkinson, with Paul Mullin, Elliot Lee and Andy Cannon among their star players over that time.

League One will bring with it fresh challenges, given the major step up in quality in the third division compared to the fourth.

The likes of Birmingham, Huddersfield, Bolton and Peterborough will all be among the favourites for promotion next season, while new Rotherham boss Steve Evans is presiding over a major squad overhaul at the New York Stadium to turn them into contenders.

Charlton, Barnsley and Lincoln will also fancy their chances, while League Two champions Stockport will also hope to compete.

A third straight promotion, therefore, may be a tall order - although Wrexham will themselves strengthen their squad once again this summer with McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds' backing.

And the Red Dragons co-owner has promised the squad a special gift if they can jump straight up to the Championship next season.

Speaking at a Disney event, McElhenney was asked by a reporter about what would happen if Wrexham got promoted, and replied: "We're doing Vegas again!

"I just got back from Las Vegas, when we did it for the second time.

"If we get promoted again, we promised them that they will be sent to Vegas again. Much to the chagrin of our co-chairman - so if you see Ryan, I don't know if he's come by yet, but he's going to say no. I'm going to say yes."

Wrexham are yet to announce their first new signing of the 2024/25 season, but have released nine players including veteran centre-back Ben Tozer.
