Wrexham are on an ascent from the lower tiers of English football and GOAL takes a look at how they can reach the Premier League quickly.
The meteoric rise of Wrexham, a Welsh football club currently playing in the English Football League Two, has captured the imagination of fans worldwide.
With Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney at the helm, the club harbours ambitious dreams of reaching the pinnacle of English football – the Premier League. But how long will it take to achieve this lofty goal?
