Elliot Lee, a midfielder for Wrexham, wrote a “special” message for the team’s supporters upon their promotion to League One.

Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds treated the players to a trip to Las Vegas for the second year in a row when they advanced to League One—their first appearance in the competition in almost two decades.

The team used it as an opportunity to decompress before getting ready for their third-tier campaign; unsung hero Andy Cannon called the vacation “special.”

The whole team, including departing veterans Luke Young and Ben Tozer, whose contracts expire in June, attended the trip.

It was a fitting way for Wrexham to end an incredible season, and Elliot Lee has thought back on a historic year for the team.

Elliot Lee shares ‘special’ Wrexham message

Lee was a key cog in Phil Parkinson’s promotion-winning machine. The 29-year-old stepped up at the start of the season when Paul Mullin was injured by scoring seven goals in his first eight matches.

Although the return of Mullin hampered his involvement, the West Ham academy graduate still finished the campaign with 16 goals and earned a place in the League Two Team of the Season.

Lee – like many players at Wrexham – is too good to be playing in the fourth tier and having helped Luton win promotion to the Championship previously, he’ll be looking to do the same at the STōK Cae Ras.

Reflecting on a ‘special’ season at the club, he wrote on X

Lee arrived at Wrexham in the summer of 2022 and he’s since described the dressing room as the best he’s been a part of, which speaks volumes about how highly he values his teammates.

Elliot Lee’s League One record

Many are tipping Wrexham to achieve a third consecutive promotion because their squad is brimming with League One experience.

In terms of achievements in the third tier, Lee is right up there among his Wrexham teammates, having fired 12 goals in Luton’s 2018/19 campaign to get them into the Championship.

Indeed, the midfield metronome has played more matches in League One (113) than in any other division, and the talented playmaker is poised to play a prominent role once more.

Parkinson will be counting on his current core of players to build the foundations of their success next term, with Mullin, Lee, Cannon, James McClean and Max Cleworth, to name a few, all ready to take the league by storm.

Lee’s impact from midfield could be invaluable and if he can eclipse his tally of 12 goals in 2018/19, Wrexham will have a huge chance of challenging towards the top.
