“I don’t feel like I have a heart anymore. I think I used up all that was left in that game,” he said.

“I like it so much. It’s unsettling how fascinated I am. I’m usually speechless but I’m really speechless at the moment. I have absolutely no idea how to quantify what just happened.”

Reynolds, who along with McElhenney were given county liberties at a civics ceremony earlier on Monday, said he feels “extremely proud” of his team, who have “rised up to the top” opportunity by any means”.

“What they’ve done this season, it’s clear that they’ve lost CEO Jason Turner, who, as I increasingly know and learn, (was) hugely loved, not just at Notts but here too.

“I have a lot of respect for everything that they have built into everything that they have done.

“What (both clubs) did was not only creating drama unlike anything you’ve ever seen in a goddamn movie, but it’s also something that I think people will be talking about for a long time. .”

Reynolds added: “I’m used to working under high pressure but usually I have a say in it; I have some control over it.

“I have nothing here. All I can do is watch and hope like everyone else.

“I think it’s a pressure cooker for both of these teams. What they’ve both achieved is historic on every level and you know, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it.”
