Indeed, it was a heartfelt message that Reynolds had for the team, whose names have been written in the history books. Steve Dale’s side traveled to Newtown’s Latham Park, where they clinched a narrow 0-1 win. Rebecca Pritchard’s strike was enough to get Wrexham AFC Women promoted to the top flight of the Welsh Women’s League.

This will be the first time the women’s side gets promoted ever since the club was formed. The entire team lit up after the final whistle blew as club captain Kim Dutton lifted the trophy. This is indeed an enormous victory for the club and the team. Moreover, Reynolds will be hoping to achieve the same feat with the men’s side as well.

Wrexham eyeing another promotion

After the women’s promotion, Reynolds will be hoping to get his men’s side to also get promoted to the fourth division. They recently came away with an emphatic win against Yeovil Town. Phil Parkinson’s side hosted one of the final three fixtures at the Racecourse Ground, where they thrashed the visitors 3-0.

The win gave a significant boost to their promotion chances. Now they are just a few baby steps away from achieving glory. Only two fixtures remain, and a win is needed in either of them. The next one is against Boreham Wood, while the final fixture is on away soil against Torquay United. Hence, they’ll be more focused than ever to clinch success in either of them.
