Reynolds and McElhenney received 98.6 per cent of the vote, needing only 75 per cent for the sale of the club, which has been in fan ownership since 2011, to proceed.
More than 2,000 supporters were able to vote on the nomination, of which 1,809 approved, 26 opposed and nine abstained.
“Subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation – RR McReynolds Company, LLC will take 100% control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST,” the statement from the trust read.
“The two parties will now finalize the details of the takeover, and we will update Wrexham supporters as soon as possible.”
During a virtual meeting with the Supporters Trust, the couple revealed their big plans to turn the Welsh side into a “global force” and answered questions from fans wanting to know more about the proposal. Up to £2m could be invested in the club to help them return to the English Football League (EFL).
