After the Red Dragons’ 19-year absence from Sky Bet League One, Elliot Lee celebrated earning back-to-back promotions.

The inventive midfield player opened the score in our 6-0 thumping of Forest Green Rovers, setting the stage for what was sure to be a historic day at the STōK Cae Ras.

Lee, who was nominated in the Sky Bet League Two Team of the Year at the EFL Awards on Sunday, scored his sixteenth goal of the season with that.

When talking about the team’s accomplishments, Lee grinned broadly because he had contributed significantly to the team’s success during the previous two seasons.

He said, “It’s amazing, which is why I initially joined the Club.”

“When I first signed, I indicated in an interview that I would be more than glad to play in League One when my initial deal expired.

Knowing that the last two years of hard effort have paid off is an amazing feeling. I joined this exclusive club since that’s what we’ve all desired and we knew we could accomplish it.

Once again, during this incredible and arduous campaign, the Red Dragons’ superiority has been shown when it counted most.

It was revealed at midnight on New Year’s Day that Lee and Paul Mullin will be staying at the STōK Cae Ras until 2027.

Given his contributions to the Club since moving to North Wales, supporters were thrilled by this move, which pledged his future to the organization.

The 29-year-old midfielder said that during the extraordinary two years, it has given him lifelong memories.

He remarked, “You would bottle up the joy that everyone in Wrexham and our supporters around the world are experiencing. It is an incredible feeling.”

Since this is the time for which we have all worked so hard, we just want to enjoy it.

“These are the kinds of moments that you want to be a part of as a football player as you grow up. You don’t experience feelings like you’re experiencing now [speaking after full-time].

He remarked, “You would bottle up the joy that everyone in Wrexham and our supporters around the world are experiencing. It is an incredible feeling.”

The team is more than used to the pressure of a promotion race, having just become the first in our 159-year history to earn back-to-back promotions.

In the National League, Phil Parkinson’s side finished on a record breaking 111 points and followed up that success by achieving automatic promotion to Sky Bet League One.

Throughout both seasons, they have enjoyed success in Emirates FA Cup campaigns, including victories against Coventry City and Shrewsbury Town.

To achieve such success is not only a testament to their performances, but also the unity in the dressing room, which Lee believes has been crucial.

He said: “I can’t speak highly enough of the group and credit to the Owners, the Manager and the staff because they bring in great characters. They bring in hard working, honest lads who are very talented.

“I’ve said it before it is the best dressing room, I have ever been a part of and that is why we handle moments like we did today [speaking on Saturday].

“We all felt strong going into these games where the pressure is high because we dealt with it all last year.

“That experience from last year really helped the group this year and it’s a pleasure to come into work every day.

“These are the moments that you want to saviour and enjoy with people that you experience those highs and lows with.

“It’s a special feeling to have.”
