Reading legend Phil Parkinson will be making a Football League return after his Wrexham team won the National League.

Playing over 350 times for the Royals in the 1990s and 2000s, 'Parky' had a 17 year spell managing in the EFL with the likes of Colchester United, Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers.

Now a team in the spotlight, Wrexham were recently taken over by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob Mcelhenney.

After a 15-year hiatus from the professional leagues, the Welsh outfit ran away with the title, earning almost 110 points.

Since arriving in 2021, the 55-year-old has lost just 15 of his 108 matches in charge- earning a 66 per cent win percentage.

This ends his three-year spell out of the Football League, departing Sunderland in 2020.

Former Royals attacker Hal Robson-Kanu offered to come out of retirement to play for Wrexham in League Two.
