  1. Plenty of tears

    McElhenney and Reynolds cried tears of joy after the stadium erupted at the full-time whistle. Who knew that a non-league football club in Wales could have such an effect on two of the most famous people in the world?

  2. Celebratory pitch invasion

    As is very much the norm when it comes to celebrating a team's success at the end of the season in English football, the scenes spilled onto the pitch after victory was secured.

    You know, the pitch the owners spent hundreds of thousands of pounds to relay twice upon buying the club...

    Over to you, groundsmen.

  3. Mullin's the man

    After hitting 38 goals in the National League this season, it's no surprise to see the reception Mullin got at full-time, particularly as two of those came in the all-important game and in spectacular style.

    The 28-year-old has been nothing short of exceptional since signing for Wrexham in 2021, firing them this far and cementing his legacy as a club legend.

    He might not wear spandex like his boss does in Deadpool, but he's a superhero in his own right, and the hero Wrexham deserved.

  4. Dressing room vibes

    Having lifted the trophy and finally escaped the frantic scenes on the pitch, the Wrexham players got to enjoy their achievements from the comfort of the dressing room.

    Their official Twitter gave an insight into the scenes and they looked fantastic.

  5. Ben Foster's barmy army

    Wrexham's home support has been notoriously loud over the course of the season, and they've made no secret of their love for Foster since he came out of retirement so re-sign for the club he once represented on loan.

    Support like this might just be enough to tempt the 'Cycling GK' to stick around a little longer.

  6. The Gaffer lets loose

    Phil Parkinson often cuts a stern figure in the dugout. And while his human side is clear in the Welcome to Wrexham docuseries, it comes across quite clear that the manager means business.

    But evidently, he lives by the work hard, play hard mantra. Parkinson was the one enjoying the dressing room celebrations the most, it appeared.

  7. Pure emotion from the owners

    It's impossible to doubt McElhenney and Reynolds' intentions at this point.

    Look at how much it means to them.

    Like kids in a candy store.

  8. Congratulated by footballing royalty

    Legendary footballer and former England captain David Beckham congratulated Wrexham and their owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob Mcelhenney on the promotion.

    He wrote, "This makes me very happy."
