The initial reactions from the first two Wrexham players who were let go by the club during a promotion party in Las Vegas have come in. Despite the celebratory atmosphere, these players are grappling with the shock and disappointment of being released while in the midst of a festive occasion.

Two Wrexham players spoke out after being let go by the club while they were in Las Vegas.

Wrexham had a remarkable season, coming in second in League Two to earn their place in the third tier after 19 years away.

Phil Parkinson’s team achieved successive promotions, having won the National League title last year, leading to their return to the Football League.

To mark their success, Wrexham’s owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney gave the promotion-winning team an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas.

Here’s a paraphrasing of your text:

As the players enjoyed themselves in the desert, the club announced on Friday the list of players they are retaining and releasing after the 2023-24 season. First-team captain Luke Young and club captain Ben Tozer, who have become popular with the fans, will leave when their contracts end next month.

Long-serving goalkeeper Rob Lainton, defenders Aaron Hayden, Jordan Tunnicliffe and Callum McFadzean will not have their contracts renewed either, as is the case with youngsters Owen Cushion and Dan Davies.

It’s likely that those players knew they would be leaving the club before they embarked on their trip to Vegas, but they haven’t let the news put a dampener on things.

In the early hours of Friday morning (Vegas time), goalkeeper Lainton uploaded to his Instagram story a video of him and Tozer enjoying themselves in a Vegas nightclub.

Later on Friday, Tozer posted a farewell message on his Instagram page that read:

“Making the move to Wrexham has been the best move of my life. My family have been so welcomed, they’re Wrexham fans for life.

“The club is on an incredible journey, with the best owners and staff, working together driving the club forward.

From myself and my family; to everyone at the club and the Wrexham fans (worldwide) that have supported us – Thank you.”

Here’s the paraphrasing of your text:

Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson expressed in a statement, “We are very thankful to all the players who are leaving the club for their hard work and contributions during their time at Wrexham.”
