Seven things Wrexham must do to avoid 'doing a Salford' and secure back-to-back promotions to League One next season
After a nail-biting end to the season, Wrexham confirmed National League promotion last month by beating Boreham Wood. With the Red Dragons finally back in the Football League after a painful spell away, co-owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are now plotting to make it back-to-back promotions into League One.
They are not the first well-financed club to hold these lofty ambitions. Fellow documentary stars Salford City were also tipped to continue their ascent up the pyramid when the Class of '92's millions propelled them into the EFL for the first time in their history in 2019. However, things have not gone to plan for the Ammies since they made it to the fourth tier, with a revolving door of managers failing to guide Salford into promotion contention over the past three seasons.
Things might finally be changing under Neil Wood this time out - with Salford set to secure a play-off place - but their consistent failures will act as a warning to any Wrexham fans who think they are destined to be challenging at the top of the table this time next year.
