Wrexham players receive 'monster' promise from Ryan Reynolds if club secure promotion from National League
| Last updated
Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds has made a “monster” promise to his players if the National League club secure promotion to League Two, according to Ben Foster.
Wrexham are on the verge of securing the National League title after a 3-0 win against relegation-battling Yeovil Town on Tuesday.
The Red Dragons secured a crucial 3-2 win over Notts County last week in a thrilling top-of-the-table clash before picking up a draw away at Barnet.
However, Wrexham’s win over Yeovil leaves them four points clear of second-place Notts County with only two matches remaining.
The Welsh side can ensure their place as National League champions on Saturday with a win over Boreham Wood at the Racecourse Ground.
When asked if he and his Wrexham teammates received a party to celebrate from the owners, he told CBS Sports: “No, they didn’t!
“They’ve promised us a big deal, though, at the end of the season.
“They’ve promised us a monster one at the end of the season. If we get promoted, they’re gonna take us away somewhere with a lot of flashing lights.”

Speaking after their win over Yeovil, Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson urged his side to “concentrate” in their bid to become National League champions.
“It’s a day we’ve been waiting for,” he said.
“It’s part one done of the week. We know what we have to do -- we’re four points clear and two games to go.
“We just need to concentrate on how we need to play against Boreham Wood.
“Obviously we know what they’re about and we’ll be looking at them closely over the next few days, and hopefully we can set a gameplan up and implement it as well as they’ve done tonight.
“The aim is to play at our very best at the weekend and we’ll see whether that’s good enough to get the points on Saturday.”
