SHAUN HARVEY says it is inevitable the playing field will level out if Wrexham continue climbing the divisions but the Reds' director believes planning for the future will ensure there is a chance for the success story to continue.

The north Wales club is on the up under Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, who completed their takeover at The Racecourse in February 2021, and Phil Parkinson's men were crowned National League champions following a record breaking 2022-23 campaign.

Wrexham, flying high in League Two, are challenging for a second successive promotion and recently appointed director Harvey accepts that the financial advantage that the Reds currently has over its rivals will begin to come to an end if they keep rising up the pyramid as they compete with clubs in a similar position.

However, Harvey insists that doesn't mean the Reds won't be able to hold their hold.

"It's been a magical rollercoaster of a ride for three years under Rob and Ryan and arguably the best is still to come," said Harvey.

"What that entails and how it plays out, I don't think anyone can accurately predict.

"All we do know is there will be lots of honest endeavour both on and off the pitch, everybody will do their best to be successful.

"Results on the pitch make a football club but ultimately, it's what goes on off it that defines it.

"Everybody around Wrexham is loving the experience of seeing how far the club can go.

"The further up the pyramid you get, the more that love will become difficult to maintain.

"Once you are a threat, you take on a different guise; you are no longer the underdog, you are now a target that everybody is aiming for.

"The further up the leagues you go, the more professional and established clubs you come up against and ultimately the financial advantage that we have had begins to dissolve.

"But at that stage we have got to make sure we are better than everybody or at least as good.

"A lot of the stuff that we are doing is about making sure that when the field is a little more level, we are still in a position to be able to compete."

Fourth-placed Wrexham are six points behind League Two leaders Stockport County with a game in hand.

The Reds, who have 18 games remaining, host Bradford City on Saturday.
