Wrexham misses direct promotion on final matchday: Reactions
Wrexham owner, Ryan Reynolds on twitter: “What a season for @Wrexham_AFC. We’re gonna have to do this the hard way. Our supporters are second to none and a big part of our success. I want to congratulate @StockportCounty on their promotion. Played their guts out all year.”
Wrexham co-owner McElhenney: “Guess we wanna do it the hard way. We’ve had an incredible season so far. Let’s dust off and go finish it!”
Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson said: “It was a tough day for us. We weren’t at our best and I thought Dagenham played well.
“Stockport’s second goal filtering around the place knocked the wind out of our sails in the second half. As much as you don’t want that to happen, it is understandable as well. But we’re ready to finish the season in style. Today wasn’t our day but we’ve got some really big games coming up now.”
Stockport Dave Challinor: “We dream and we’ll move on quickly and look forward to next season. It’s been a brilliant day for everyone in the ground. For every supporter who turned up and supported us, I can only thank them. They’ve played their part in what has been a great season for us.”
