Wrexham have officially set off on all expenses trip to Las Vegas with Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney

The Wrexham FC squad have officially set off on their massive trip to Las Vegas, with all the bills being paid by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
Celebrating their promotion back into the football league after 15 years is very much on the cards for Wrexham, after they won the National League a couple of seasons after being bought by Rob and Ryan.
Wrexham itself has been revelling jubilantly in the football team's success, with an open topped bus parade just part of their celebrations.
In addition to the glory of winning the league and a big money bonus, the Wrexham FC squad were also promised the treat of an all expenses trip to Las Vegas if they finished top of the table, and their bosses have made good on their promise.
There's only one rule for this trip (presumably apart from doing something that would be a major headache for Wrexham) and that's for the players to leave their cards at home because Rob and Ryan will be picking up the bill.
The squad has now set off towards Vegas where they'll have four days to enjoy some of the delights that the city of sin has to offer.
Pictures of the Wrexham players heading through the airport and sitting on the plane have been shared on social media, ahead of what should be four days of fun all expensed to the owners.
One person who won't be joining them on the trip is Wrexham FC manager, Phil Parkinson, who said he 'didn't make the cut' for the Vegas trip but hoped the players would 'come back in one piece'.
It might have been a bit weird for the players if they'd gone on holiday to Las Vegas with their manager right alongside them, as Parkinson said he'll 'leave that one to the lads'.
Once the squad returns from Vegas, they'll get a bit more rest before returning to training ahead of the new season in League Two, their first back in the football league since 2008.
The Wrexham players are probably feeling quite lucky that Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney decided to choose their club to buy, as they nearly picked another British team to invest in instead.
The original idea to buy a football team had been McElhenney's, and before he and Reynolds looked at Wrexham, they had been eyeing up Hartlepool United.
Hartlepool fans might be cursing their luck in that case as they're going to get relegated from League Two, dropping down out of the football league just as Wrexham's promotion sees them hopping up a division.
