It was a promising start for Wrexham after striker Paul Mullin scored the first goal of the match in a penalty shot, but the other team almost immediately caught up with a goal by John McAtee.

After going into half time at 1-1, the second half of the match proved to be more action-packed than the first. 

Grimsby briefly took the lead when Luke Waterfall scored, but they were quickly overtaken by two goals from Wrexham in quick succession – from Ben Tozer and Paul Mullin respectively.

Not to be outdone, Grimsby launched a late comeback – with two goals from Emmanuel Dieseruvwe taking them to a lead of 4-3.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought the town’s football club, Wrexham AFC, in February last year and invested £2million – with their eyes on promotion this season

But 80 minutes into the match, Wrexham’s Jordan Davies levelled the field by scoring the team’s fourth goal.

In the last minute of extra time, the match was finally decided when Grimsby’s Luke Waterdell scored their fifth goal.

Ironically, Waterdell once played for Wrexham for half a season in 2015. 

It is over a year since the A-List duo bought Wrexham FC – having never visited the town before – investing £2million into the venture. 

The actors officially took control of the National League side in February 2021 and plan to make a documentary about it.

Last week, Reynolds and McElhinney watched the team narrowly lose to Bexley at the FA Vase Cup in Wembley, with pals David Beckham and actor Will Ferrell in tow.
