The Prime Minister has said Wrexham is a “jewel in the crown” and congratulated the football club on its promotion.

On Wednesday (April 26) the topic of the Reds' success was raised in the House of Commons during Prime Minister's questions. 

Wrexham secured promotion to the Football League after their 3-1 win over Boreham Wood on Saturday.

The club and community have been revitalised since the takeover of Hollywood stars Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds in 2021.

Wrexham's MP Sarah Atherton said: “After a 15-year break, Wrexham Association Football Club is back in the English Football League.


“Will the Prime Minister join me in congratulating everyone at the club, including the loyal supporters and the owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, and does he agree that Wrexham is no longer a neglected place, but quickly becoming a jewel in the crown of the United Kingdom?”

Rishi Sunak said: “Can I join my honourable friend in congratulating everyone at Wrexham, from the owners to the players to the supporters, and everyone in the community.

“It’s been an incredible ride, we’ve all enjoyed watching them. We wish them every future success. I join with her in saying they are indeed a jewel in the crown and she deserves enormous credit for championing them in this place.”
