Ryan Reynolds given five-year Premier League challenge for Wrexham

Wrexham have been set a five-year target to reach the Premier League by one of their former players.

The Welsh club, owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, are on the rise on and off the pitch after winning the National League last season to secure their place back in the Football League. The exposure created by Reynolds and McElhenney and the Welcome to Wrexham documentary series has seen interest in the Dragons soar around the world.

The club has no intention of staying in League Two and they are currently in the shake-up for promotion to the third tier. Inspired by Luton’s rise from non-league to the top-flight, Wrexham have ambitions of reaching the top of the pyramid.

Former Wrexham star Brett Ormerod, who played for the club between 2012 and 2014 when they were struggling in non-league, reckons that dream could be realised in as little five years.

“Hopefully, I'd like to see them in the Championship or Premier League in five years,” he told Stocklytics. “The owners are ambitious enough to get there. They've always had the right fanbase and now they have the might of the Americans.

“Where Wrexham end up depends on where the owners want to take it. I wish them all the best because the fans have been through a lot of pain. I remember being there when the bills weren't being paid and they were being threatened to be kicked out of the ground.”

Wrexham’s rise and heightened profile has naturally led to envious glances from elsewhere. Ormerod said: “I wouldn't say any other club is bitter about Wrexham's situation, but they'll definitely be jealous and you can't blame them.

‌“Ryan and Rob are obviously in this for the long haul. They obviously didn't want to just make a 'Class of 92' [at the Salford], they wanted something that had an existing fanbase and a good history. I just hope that they are in this for the long run. That's the danger [that they aren't].

‌“When you look at bigger teams like Reading, owners come in with the best intentions, it's not always going to make money and I think some business people don't realise that. They end up losing a lot of money and walk away from the club whilst leaving said club in financial tatters. The people who suffer are the club itself and the fans.”
