"Together with the players, the staff, the fans, and the local community, we can now pursue our goal to grow the team and return it to the EFL in front of increased attendances, and in an improved stadium, while making a positive difference to the wider community in Wrexham.

"Their members are a fitting reflection of the integrity and spirit of the town and they will always have an important role at the club."

Just last week the pair remained the toast of Wales after Wrexham FC won a long-awaited promotion back into the football league with a 3-1 victory over Boreham Wood on Saturday.

The pair — who paid £2million for the club in 2020 — partied with supporters after winning 3-1 on Saturday.

Reynolds even demanded goalie Ben Foster’s match shirt and did not care when told: “It stinks by the way, it absolutely stinks.”

Fan Cali Howet, 11, said: “I can’t believe we won the league – but we all knew it would happen. It’s amazing – I love Ryan and Rob, they’ve done so much for the city.”
