Since 2020, Wrexham have been backed by Hollywood duo Reynolds and McElhenney, who have already pumped a lot of money into the club.

Aside from the club, the pair have also invested in the town and community and are now planning to redevelop the Racecourse Ground.

This season, Wrexham saw their total payroll increase from last year’s £4.05 million to £6.91 million.

Reacting to the team’s promotion, manager Phil Parkinson said: “I’m immensely proud of the lads today because, when it mattered most, we’ve put in our two best performances of the season.

“It’s a great achievement for everybody connected with the club. There is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes.”

On social media, Reynolds wrote: “A few years ago, if you told me I would be crying tears of joy over a football match taking place in North Wales, you would be Rob McElhenney.

“Congrats to Wrexham and to my co-chairman in crime. Double up the town! This is the ride of our lives.”
