In a script that even their owners would be proud of, promotion back to the EFL comes exactly 15 years after they lost their league status in 2008.

It’s been a long time coming, but Paul Mullin’s inspired display means that supporters of the third oldest club in world football finally have something to cheer.

Mullin is no stranger to life in the EFL and after netting two wonderstrikes at the Racecourse Ground he’ll be desperate to lead the team into an exciting new era – fresh from being described as ‘one of the greatest players in the world’ by his grateful employers.

Reynolds and McElhenney looked visibly nervous throughout the 95 minutes of action on Saturday evening, but they couldn’t hide their delight at seeing their vision come to fruition.

Hollywood A-lister Paul Rudd was even in attendance as he attracted attention for drinking beer with supporters before the match kicked off.

However after the match is was clear what the occasion meant to the club’s owners, with Reynolds holding his head in hands and McElhenney wiping away the tears in a clear show of what the achievement meant to him.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Reynolds said: “I’m not sure I can actually process what happened tonight, I’m speechless.

“One thing that’s running through my head is people asking us ‘why Wrexham, why Wrexham’ – this is exactly why Wrexham. What is happening right now is why.”

McElhenney added: “We can hear how it feels to the town and that’s what’s most important to us. It’s a moment of catharsis for them and for us to be welcomed into their community and to be welcomed into this experience is the honour of my life.”

As well as rebuilding Wrexham as a club on the pitch, Reynolds and McElhenney have worked wonders in the local community after gaining the buy-in of previously disillusioned supporters.

This is just the beginning for Wrexham

Not only that, the Hollywood stars have attracted supporters from all over the world thanks to the documentary series, ‘Welcome To Wrexham’, which has been a huge hit both in the UK and the USA.

Skeptics suggested that the involvement of Reynolds and McElhenney was simply a PR stunt, but what’s clear is that the duo are in Wrexham to stay as they look to build on what has been a stunning start to their life in Wales.
