Ryan Reynolds confirms Wrexham squad's next end of season holiday destination
| Last updated
Wrexham co-owner and Hollywood A-lister Ryan Reynolds appears to have already decided where the squad will be going on their summer holidays next year.
Wrexham will compete in the Football League for the first time in 15 years following their promotion from the National League this term.
Wrexham Women have also been promoted and will next play in the Adran Premier, the highest league for women's football in Wales.
Under co-owners Reynolds and fellow actor Rob McElhenney, who have reportedly invested £10m into the club since taking ownership in 2020, have made no secret of their aim to get the team to the Premier League.
Wrexham’s men’s team took the division by storm this season, winning 34 of their 46 league fixtures and losing just three as they amassed an impressive points tally of 111.
Reynolds and McElhenney have seemingly brought the feel-good factor back to the city, with other famous faces, such as Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, and Reynolds’ wife Blake Lively, all having made appearances at the Racecourse Ground this campaign.
As a sign of his dedication to the club, Reynolds snubbed this year’s lavish Met Fashion Gala in New York to attend Wrexham’s three-bus trophy parade at the start of May.
The co-owners have even tried to tempt Gareth Bale, who hung up his boots after Wales' exit from the 2022 World Cup, out of retirement for one last season.
To celebrate their success, the playing squad, which include former Premier League shot-stopper Ben Foster, were treated to an all-expenses-paid end of season trip to Las Vegas, courtesy of the club’s superstar owners.
Dinner at the feted Spago restaurant, run by world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, as well as an invite to join DJ Steve Aoki in his booth were just a couple of the items on the itinerary for the players in Nevada.
However, following a photo of Red Dragons’ midfielder Elliot Lee and 38-goal striker Paul Mullin with DJ and former Jersey Shore star Pauly D, Reynolds took to social media to joke that Wrexham’s next post-season trip would be vastly different.
“Next year, they’re going on a five day meditation retreat to in the Faroe Islands,” he wrote on Instagram, followed by the hashtag #WrexhamInVegas.
Quite the change from the sin city then, it seems.
