‘Deadpool’s Team’ Wrexham, promoted to part 4… Congratulation for Reynolds Tears
Wrexham, an English club that is attracting attention and managed by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McIlhenney, has been promoted to League Two (4th division) by winning the English National League (5th division).
Wrexham, 스포츠토토a Welsh club participating in the National League, won 3-1 in a league game against Borehamwood on the 23rd (Korean time). There was still one game left, but the leader Wrexham secured the championship by widening the gap with 2nd place Notts County to 4 points.
The difference between 5 and 4 is huge. The English Football League (EFL) governs three leagues, from the second division championship to League Two. It is different from the 5th part and below. The League Cup (Carabao Cup), which participates in divisions 1 to 4, can also go out.
Wrexham, a club in the lower league for many years, began to draw attention in 2021 when Reynolds and McIlhenney took over. It was unusual among the lower league teams to appear in the game ‘FIFA 22’, and the journey with Reynolds was produced as a ‘Disney Plus’ documentary ‘Welcome to Lexom’. In the coming summer, he is engaged in various activities stemming from the fame of the owner, such as playing a friendly match against Manchester United in the United States.
The new owners also paid attention to strengthening their power. The team, which struggled with promotion, ran to first place in the National League this season. Paul Merlin, the number one scorer in the team, originally played for League Two Cambridge United, but joined Wrexham in 2021 and greatly improved the team’s decision-making power.
“Bob and I shed tears while watching the game. I don’t know how to express my feelings,” said owner Reynolds, who was delighted with the players at the home game that confirmed the championship. Owner McIlhenney said, “My hair has gone gray. Our team has not been able to advance to the Football League for 15 years. It is a result achieved at the end of a long period of time, so a tsunami of emotions will surge.”
Moving up to the Football League allowed Wrexham to face stronger teams. Even when we played against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup this season, the owner of Reynolds visited the scene. If the club shows a willingness to invest, it is worth expecting a blast from the Carabao Cup.
