Wrexham defeated struggling Forest Green 6-0 to earn immediate promotion from League Two at the first attempt.

Ryan Reynolds, a co-owner of Wrexham, responded passionately to the Welsh team’s promotion from League Two on Saturday.

With results elsewhere and the Red Dragons’ 6-0 thumping of relegation-threatened Forest Green, Wrexham, who won the National League crown the previous season, will advance for the second time in a row.

Stockport, who now sit in first place in League One four points ahead of them after defeating Morecambe 3-0, will join them.

The best teams in League Two have had ups and downs this season; even Wrexham had to overcome a challenging run of form at the beginning of the year.

The Red Dragons’ chances of earning automatic promotion appeared to be waning at one stage, while Notts County, who were also vying for promotion, vanished out of the picture after Luke Williams left for Swansea.

A quartet of seasoned league leaders, Stockport, Wrexham, Mansfield, and MK Dons, effectively faced off for the top three spots after Crewe and Barrow withdrew from automatic contention in recent weeks.

With a 2-0 victory over Morecambe on Saturday, Stockport completed their sixth straight win across all competitions and secured their promotion.

Reynolds and co-owner Rob McElhenney watched as Mansfield overcame a 1-0 lead to MK Dons to win 4-1 and virtually guarantee their own automatic promotion spot, while Wrexham did the same.

While neither of the co-owners was there at Racecourse Ground to see the match, McElhenney kept his Twitter account updated during the match as tensions increased and then decreased as Wrexham’s victory seemed certain.

Reynolds then posted his own reaction to his Instagram page hours later, writing: “A few years ago, if you had 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, on the other hand, was essentially at a loss for words and just tweeted, “No words.”

Reynolds and McElhenney will have a busy summer ahead of them as they try to get Wrexham into League One, but for the time being they can enjoy their success.

Before the 2023–24 season officially ends, Phil Parkinson’s team still has two games left: a trip to Crewe, which is in fifth position, and a final-day home game against Stockport.
