Welcome to Wrexham earned glowing reviews in the United Kingdom and United States, but, according to the club's executive director Humphrey Ker, "there is so much more of the real story of Wrexham AFC to be told. The more people who want to join us on that story the better, says I."
So, with that in mind, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about Welcome to Wrexham Season Two.
