As a reward for achieving promotion to the Football League for the first time in 15 years, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney treated the Wrexham players to an all-expensed trip to Las Vegas.

While they usually say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, many of the promotion winning squad posted videos and pictures of the wild trip to social media.

And after amassing a whopping 111 points to lift the National League trophy, what better way than to treat the squad to a four-day extravaganza in the US.

One of those who went on the trip was former England and Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster, who played a rather crucial role in Wrexham achieving promotion.

While Foster joined the Welsh side towards the end of the triumphant season, he saved a last minute penalty in their crucial title deciding game against Notts County to set them well on their way to League 2.

Foster joined the rest of the squad in Las Vegas to celebrate promotion, and it is fair to say he was pretty impressed with how big Wrexham's Hollywood owners made it.

Speaking on The Fellas podcast, Foster said: "I went on the Vegas trip it was hard work mate honestly. The way that Rob McElhenney and Ryan put it on for us, laid it on for us, was just like nothing I've ever seen.

"We got there and it was just straight to the shower, straight get changed, go to Hakkasan for dinner and then we're going to Hakkasan nightclub straight afterwards. All expenses paid."

Foster confirmed none of the players spent a penny on the trip, before he was asked by Calfreezy how much he thought the whole trip cost the Reynolds and McElhenney in total.

"Got to be £500,000, had to be at least half a million genuinely it had to be because they just looked after everything," Foster said.

Foster then described what it was like walking into the Hakkasan club, just hours after they touchdown on US soil.

The squad evidently had a pretty wild time in Las Vegas.

Recalling that first night clubbing, Foster said: "We walk in and whatever's playing, the music shuts off and they start playing a Wrexham song.

"We've got a massive closed off VIP area, and there's Wrexham drapes falling from the ceiling, poppers going off everywhere with confetti, glitter.

"There's a screen and it's showing like Paul Mullin scoring goals and stuff like that! It's 1am and they've stopped the music and they're putting this stuff on, and every one of us is just going 'What on earth's going on here?!'"
