JORDAN DAVIES says Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney deserve huge credit for the impact they’ve had not only on Wrexham Football Club but the area as a whole.

There has been plenty to celebrate since the Hollywood owners completed their takeover at The Racecourse in February 2021, with Phil Parkinson’s men finishing runners-up in League Two this term to make it back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club’s history.

Davies, who hails from Coedpoeth, has helped Wrexham progress from the National League to League One, and can see the difference that success on the pitch has had on the town.

The feelgood factor has returned now that the club is heading in the right direction and the midfielder feels this has in turn had a positive impact on the community, with Reynolds and McElhenney making such a positive difference since they chose Wrexham for their project which has earned global publicity.

“I almost get bored of saying thank you to Rob and Ryan,” said Davies, who came through the youth ranks at his hometown club and rejoined the Reds in the summer of 2020 following a spell at Brighton and Hove Albion.

“Obviously they understand but I don’t think they fully understand how much it has done for everyone.

“Look at the businesses and other stuff, it is amazing. The town has never been better in my opinion and that’s all thanks to Rob and Ryan.

“When the football was going bad, the town didn’t feel great and now the football has picked up, the town has really picked up so I am very proud.”

Before going straight up from League Two, Davies helped Wrexham clinch the National League title following a record-breaking 2022-23 season when the Reds were pushed all the way by Notts County before securing the one automatic promotion place.

“The first promotion was probably more relief and the second was success,” said Davies.

“I think I could enjoy the second one a bit more because there wasn’t a ton of pressure, if that makes sense.

“The National League was like promotion or bust, this was our first season in League Two and we did it in one season which was amazing. I am proud of the success and seeing everyone’s hard work paying off.”
