Reynolds and McElhenney, who completed a $2.5 million takeover of Wrexham in November 2020, took part in an amusing video on social media involving Alex Ferguson — United’s managerial great — to publicize the friendly.
Wrexham will hope to have been promoted to the fourth tier of English football by the time the game is played. It is leading the fifth-tier National League.
The club from north Wales is the subject of a TV documentary called “Welcome to Wrexham.”
