The pair had not been able to attend so far, but showed up as Wrexham played Maidenhead at York Road, with the hosts “delighted” to welcome the pair.

They were treated with a lot of emotion and drama as they tackled life outside the league.

Maidenhead took a 2-0 lead while Wrexham also saw Bryce Hosannah sent off after just 31 minutes.

Goals from Paul Mullin and Jordan Davies put the Welsh club tied with Reynolds and McElhenney pictured kissing on the terraces.

But they saw their team concede a goal in the 77th minute as they lost 3-2.

Wrexham remains 11th in the National League after the loss, 13 points off the top of the Grimsby table.

“It wasn’t the outcome we wanted, but it was great to finally have our presidents in the stands for the first time,” the club tweeted.

Reynolds posted a series of images on Instagram and said: “Football is a stunning, heart-wrenching, magnificent gun of breathtaking horror, evil and beauty and I never sleep again.”

The couple were followed by a film crew with a Netflix documentary being filmed about the couple’s takeover of the club.

Hollywood stars also appear set to watch the team take on Torquay at home on Saturday and will take part in community activities in North Wales, according to reports.
