Wrexham boss rejected from Las Vegas promotion treat by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney
| Last updated
Wrexham's boss has said he's been rejected from the club's trip to Las Vegas.
Now, unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you will be all too familiar with the Welsh side's meteoric rise to fame.
And a couple of weeks ago, the side secured promotion to the football league, the first time they've managed to do it in 15 years.
Since then, the players have been celebrating, with thousands of fans lining the streets to see their heroes at their open-top bus parade earlier this week.
The A-list owners and the players are now set to jet off to Sin City for some much needed rest, if that's actually possible there, I don't know.
However, one person who won't be making the trip across the pond is manager Phil Parkinson.
Speaking to Sky News at the parade, he was asked if he was heading out with the team.
To which Parkinson replied: "I didn't make the cut for the Vegas trip, unfortunately.
"We'll leave that one to the lads and hopefully, they will come back in one piece. I'm sure they will."
I mean, no one wants their boss with them on holiday, do they?
This comes after Wrexham's top scorer, Paul Mullin, revealed that Reynolds and McElhenny have just one rule the players have to follow during the trip.
"It became a thing where if we won the league, we’d get a holiday," he revealed.
"So we’re off to Vegas. Ryan and Rob told us to leave our cards at home, they're sorting the lot.
"They sent us a full itinerary just now. Part of me doesn’t want to go, I might be dead by the end of it.
"But I’d never go to Vegas by me own accord, so I’m buzzing for it."
Speaking about their aspirations for the club, Reynolds and McElhenny said they want to make it as successful as possible.
And while some people might not believe them, they're in it for the long haul.
The Deadpool star said: "Ultimately, like any business, you want it to be able to self-perpetuate and continue growing.
"You don't want to lose money, but I don't think either of us are in this to make money either."
