Ryan Reynolds acknowledged that maths was not his forte as he responded to Wrexham’s victory in the National League.
Ollie Palmer’s brace and Paul Mullin’s stoppage time goal secured a 3-0 win at the Racecourse Ground for the Dragons over Stockport County. Wrexham now hold the first spot in the National League ahead the final day of fixtures next weekend, overtaking Stockport.
Reynolds, Wrexham’s co-owner, could not contain his excitement when he took to Twitter in response to their crucial win over the only remaining title competitors.
Reynolds quoted Reynolds tweeting the club’s confirmation that the whistle is full-time. “I don’t know what happens from here. Math has never been my strong suit. But @Wrexham_AFC supporters did their part. As they’ve always done. I’m so proud of this club.”
Stockport is now at the top of this table by goal difference. His club leads them by two goals. However, their rivals still have a game in the bag.
Only the league champions automatically get promoted to League Two. League Two is for clubs who finish second to seventh in the play-offs for final promotion.

Wrexham are out of the Football League since 14 years. They were relegated to League Two in 2008, after finishing bottom of the table.
They will be hoping to put that period in non-league to an end next Sunday when they travel to Dagenham & Redbridge on the final day of the season. The match will be followed by the FA Trophy final against Bromley at Wembley Stadium one week later.
Reynolds, along with actor Rob McElhenney, completed a takeover. Wrexham made a return in the FIFA videogame series this season.
