During its long history, Wrexham has had many successes including winning the Welsh Cup on 23 occasions and a famous FA cup victory over, then First Division Champions, Arsenal in 1992. In 2011, the club was purchased by its supports. Two years later, Wrexham had its first trip to Wembley were it won the FA Trophy.

The acquisition by RR McReynolds Company, LLC, which was founded by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, represents an exciting opportunity for the club and its loyal supporters.

BDO are very pleased to have supported Wrexham with the sale.

"BDO have provided Wrexham Supporters’ Trust with invaluable support and advice from the very beginning. They were there for us with insolvency advice and support when we acquired the club in November 2011. Roger Buckley has been a long standing friend to the club with help and guidance. Recently the M&A team, led by Harry Stoakes and Tom Urquhart has taken up the challenge in helping take the club forward into a bright new future. They have always been pragmatic and commercial in their approach."
