There will be no Hollywood ending for Wrexham, as its run in the English FA Cup ended on Tuesday.
The National League team dropped a 3-1 decision in a fourth round replay at Sheffield United. The teams had battled to 3-3 in the first encounter.
Wrexham, the lowest ranked team still alive in the competition, is co-owned by American actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, whose crew is putting together the second season of the TV series, Welcome to Wrexham.
“So proud of these boys. And the 4,000 plus away supporters who gave it all,” Reynolds wrote on Twitter.
Added McElhenney: “I could not be more proud of those men than I am right now. They gave it absolutely everything.”
Anel Ahmedhodzic had given Sheffield a 1-0 lead, but Paul Mullin equalized on a 59th-minute penalty kick.
Mullin, however, had a PK saved in the 72nd minute before the Blades tallied twice in stoppage time.
Spoiler alert for all Welcome to Wrexham fans:
The team is in first place in the fifth-tier National League and is in position for automatic promotion to League Two, the fourth division of English professional football.
