Now famously, Wrexham are owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney who aim to take the club back to league football this season. They have certainly captured the hearts of the fans and international attention along the way, and with them sat in second place in the National League, it will make a great end to the season.
