WREXHAM AFC's popularity is through the roof at the moment with the club chasing a return to the English Football League in one way or another.

The Reds' latest win on Sunday, May 8, saw them leapfrog Stockport County, who they beat 3-0, to the top of the National League table on goal difference. 

Over the past few weeks, Wrexham's sensational form has seen them cut county's lead down bit by bit from double figures to nothing.

Should Stockport fail to win their game in hand v Torquay United on Wednesday (May 11), then that will set up a very interesting final day of the season for Wrexham who take on Dagenham and Redbridge away.

The North Wales club is currently on its longest unbeaten home run (18 matches) this century.

A place in the English Football League next season, following a 14-year absence, could still be on the cards via the promotion play-offs which have already been secured by the Reds. 

And there is the small matter of a trip to Wembley to face Bromley in the FA Trophy final on May 22 too.

All that, coupled with the overall buzz of the town, and the romance with Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney is certainly putting smiles on many faces.
