He said: “Everything I own smells like champagne, beer and grass. I’m still somewhere between giggling and sobbing. This town and this sport is one of the most romantic things on earth. Thank you, @Wrexham_AFC.”

Tweeting a picture of the celebrations, Rob McElhenney added “I have no words other than THANK YOU.”

Before the promotion game, which saw Wrexham beat Boreham Wood 3-1, movie star Paul Rudd was spotted in a Wrexham pub drinking and chatting with fans. The journey of Ryan Reyonds and Rob McElhenny buying Wrexham has been followed on a Disney+ documentary series, ‘Welcome to Wrexham.’

The first series, which saw the club fall just short of promotion, was released in August last year. The second series is expected to follow in August this year.
