Ryan Reynolds’ Wrexham AFC Is On The Brink Of Promotion

— Updated on 13 April 2023

Regardless of how the 2022-2023 season ultimately shakes out, following the underdog Wrexham AFC is going to make for some great television in the upcoming season of Welcome to Wrexham. With four fixtures remaining, the Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney-owned Wrexham AFC are in a good place to get a promotion from the National League – the fifth tier of the English football pyramid – into the EFL League Two.

Coming off the back of a critical win against Notts County, the lads currently lead the National League with a game in hand and a three-point gap. Prior to the game, the two squads were tied at 100 points and were head and shoulders above the rest of the pack. Notts County had a slight edge with goal differential.

The game itself was a blockbuster. Notts County held the lead going into halftime after a stunning free kick by John Bostock from about 23 meters out. Wrexham striker Paul Mullin then levelled the score 1-1 shortly after, followed by a goal from Jacob Mendy to complete the turnaround.

Notts County’s Kyle Cameron notched another one to equal the score once more, but Elliot Lee’s effort saw the home team Wrexham pull the lead for the second and final time. Veteran keeper Ben Foster’s penalty save in the 96th minute officially secured the victory. It was an incredible battle for the crucial three points, with many calling it one of the biggest clashes the fifth tier has ever seen.

This doesn’t officially clinch Wrexham AFC’s spot atop the National League, and subsequent promotion to League Two for next season, but it certainly gives them good footing. Even if Notts County went undefeated down the stretch, Wrexham only needs a minimum of two wins and a draw to secure their place at the top. There’s a lot of margin for error for the Red Dragons.

In any event, the Welsh outfit was able to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup this season which far exceeded the team’s own expectations. They have also announced a 2023-24 pre-season tour in the United States, which is set to include a game against Manchester United. Wrexham fans have a lot to look forward to.
