The hosts led 4-0 at half-time thank to two goals from Paul Mullin, one from Elliot Lee and a Ryan Inniss own goal.

Ryan Barnett and Jack Marriott completed a memorable day for the Dragons with strikes in the second half.

Deadpool star Reynolds said on X: “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.”

McElhenney wrote simply: “No words.”

The pair’s takeover of the club in February 2021 has contributed to worldwide attention for the team.
