A sporting fairytale

Wrexham Association Football Club

The now-famous Wrexham Association Football Club scored another major goal over the weekend, securing promotion to English football’s third-tier division with a 6-nil win against Gloucestershire side Forest Green. The last time the Welsh club made it to League One – which is only 2 tiers away from the Premier League – was the 2004-2005 season. Wrexham has been on a bit of a winning streak since Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought it in 2021, infusing it with new sponsorships/cash, international audiences, and a touch of star power. After the win, Reynolds said he and his “co-chairman in crime” – who had an extra reason to celebrate alongside his birthday – were having “the ride of our lives”.
