The Welsh outfit came second in the National League but have been knocked out at the semi-final stage of the playoffs by sixth placed Grimsby Town.



The club is owned by Hollywood A-listers Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, but there was no acting in the look of despair on their faces as their sides promotion dream collapsed.

Grimsby's Luke Waterfall scored a stunning header two minutes from the end of extra-time to seal the thrilling victory over Wrexham.

The game started perfectly for Wrexham, as they opened the scoring in front of their own fans thanks to Paul Mullin's spot-kick.

But John McAtee drew the visitors level almost instantly.

The second half saw the game descend into absolute anarchy as six goals were scored throughout the half.

Waterfall got The Mariners off to a bright start before a quick-fire double from Wrexham's Ben Tozer and Mullin restored the home sides lead.

Ryan Taylor then nodded his side level before being subbed off for Emmanuel Dieseruvwe.

A couple of minutes after coming on, Dieseruvwe then managed to shake his marker at the far post and had a free header to see the lead swing back to Grimsby again.

Jordan Davis then drew the hosts level again two minutes later with his own far post headed corner.

There was nothing to separate the two teams all throughout extra-time, until Waterfall nodded a brilliant header into the corner two-minutes from time as the decisive goal.

Reynolds and McElhenney took a controlling stake of the club in November 2020, and attended their first games at the club earlier in the season.

'Deadpool' star Reynolds was even involved in a pitch invasion as Wrexham made it to the FA Trophy final in April.
