BEN TOZER'S journey with Wrexham is over but the centre-back is grateful he got to enjoy the perks of playing for Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

Centre-back Tozer arrived at The Racecourse from Cheltenham Town for an undisclosed fee in August 2021 and he made 118 league appearances in three-seasons with the Reds but has been released by manager Phil Parkinson.

The final two campaigns ended in glory with Wrexham securing back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club's history.

On both occasions after going up, Parkinson's players were rewarded with an an all-expenses-paid lavish bash in Las Vegas, with Reynolds and McElhenney funding the trip.

Tozer won't be part of any future celebrations if the success story continues but the 34-year-old is grateful what he experienced during his time in north Wales.

"We are very lucky with the way that the lads are treated at the club," said Tozer, who was Reds' club captain.

"To go to Las Vegas in the manner in which we have for the last two years is outrageous really with the way we were treated out there and the experiences we get.

"I am very grateful to have enjoyed that.

"You get some people who turn around to you and say 'you are going to miss that' but I say 'no, I'm just glad it happened'.

"I would rather look at it like that rather than I'm not going to get this or that anymore. I've had that and I'm grateful I've had that."

Deadpool star Reynolds and Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator and actor, McElhenney, have both been in contact with Tozer since his departure was announced.

"I have had a couple of really good chats with both of them," he added.

"They have both took the time out to make the effort to speak to me which was nice.

"You never know what could happen in the future with the relationship we have and stuff but it is great the way they have dealt with it and dealt with me, and dealt with everyone really."
