Wrexham tipped for Premier League push as Ben Foster set to stay

Wrexham tipped for Premier League push as Ben Foster set to stay

Bookmakers are offering several specials on Wrexham following their promotion to League Two from the National League on Saturday.

Wrexham have been tipped by bookmakers to make a push for the Premier League after securing the National League title on Saturday.

Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney were pictured in tears after watching their team come from behind against Boreham Wood to secure the league title and promotion back to the English Football League for the first time in 15-years.

The Red Dragons fell behind in the first minute thanks to a goal from Lee Ndlovu but levelled the scoreline shortly after through Elliott Lee. Paul Mullin would then go on to net his 37th and 38th goal of the season to secure all three points and the title for his squad.

The squad and owners will continue to celebrate their achievements over the coming days but ultimately will have one eye on next season, as they look to push on and progress the club further.

Speaking to ESPN back in January, Reynolds revealed the lofty ambitions he and his co-owner have for the club, which included the top flight of English football. He said: "We want to walk the walk, even as a fifth-tier club. We say this all the time, but we want to be in the Premier League, as crazy as that sounds to some people.

"If it is theoretically possible to go from the fifth tier in professional football all the way to the Premier League, why wouldn't we do that? Why wouldn't we use our last drop of blood to get there? We're in it for the ride. This is a multidecade project."
