“We can hear how it feels to the town,” said co-owner McElhenney.

Paul Mullin’s two goals created a party atmosphere at the sell-out Racecourse and at the final whistle, emotional Wrexham fans spilled out onto the pitch as their Hollywood owners – who made the club world famous with their Disney+ We Are Wrexham documentary – cried in the directors’ box.

“People said at the beginning ‘why Wrexham?’, this is exactly why Wrexham, happening right now,” Deadpool star Reynolds told BT Sport, pointing to the celebrating Wrexham fans.

“I’m not sure I can actually process what happened tonight, I’m speechless.”

McElhenney added to BT Sport: “How it feels for the town is the most important to us – it’s a moment of catharsis for them and celebration – and to be welcomed into this community and this experience is the honour of my life.”
