A LOT of happy emotions would have returned to Wrexham fans across the world after watching the most recent Welcome to Wrexham episode. 

Episode 12 - "Hand of Foz", was released on Disney+ in the UK on Wednesday (November 1) and was all about the Reds' clash against Notts County at the Racecourse. 

The hit docu-series is in its second season capturing the highs and lows of Wrexham AFC under the ownership of Hollywood stars Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds. 

The documentary has played a key role in expanding the club's global audience, which is highlighted in the latest episode as two childhood friends are reunited over their love for the Reds. 

Episode 12 gave an insight into Wrexham's shock defeat at Halifax Town on Good Friday, a glimpse into the Guildhall as Ryan and Rob were awarded freedom of the city and of course that game against Notts County.

The latest episode seemed to perfectly capture the change of fortunes in Wrexham since the Hollywood takeover in 2021, and with the risk of being controversial, it could be the best episode yet!

When Phil Parkinson's side got turned over at Halifax in front of 4,500 travelling Reds fans, it gave the classic Wrexham feeling of 'here we go again' almost as if people expected them to fall short yet again. 


Then as Rob and Ryan discuss what Wrexham means to them during their speeches in the Guildhall, it gives a sense of just how connected everyone in the town is. 

And then comes that penalty save...

Dubbed the "biggest National League game in history" it was all on the line and despite several setbacks, Wrexham found a way to win. 

It was a victory that all but ensured promotion into League Two and the release of emotions after Ben Foster saved that penalty is clear to see. 

There were smiles, tears, and everything in between in the Racecourse, and across Wrexham as a whole that afternoon, which just demonstrates how far the club and community have come.

That change therefore encapsulates all that is going on in the town, club and community to drive Wrexham forward and bring hope and positivity to a place that was down on its luck for some time.
