Reynolds and McElhenney’s Wrexham soar to League One

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are on cloud nine once again as they steer Wrexham towards another triumphant season. The dynamic duo, both renowned Hollywood figures, continue to bask in the glory of the club’s recent promotion, with Reynolds affirming, “We’re having the ride of our lives.”

The co-ownership of the club by Reynolds, 47, and his counterpart McElhenney has undoubtedly brought a fresh wave of success. After securing a spot in League Two last year, their latest victory, a resounding 6-0 win over Forest Green Rovers, solidifies their place in League One for the upcoming season. With their current position ensuring a top-three automatic promotion, the future looks bright for Wrexham.

The match itself was a testament to the team’s prowess, with Elliot Lee setting the pace by opening the scoring, followed by a brace from Paul Mullin and an unfortunate own goal by Ryan Inniss, all before halftime. The second half saw further domination as Ryan Barnett and Jack Marriott showcased their skill by finding the net.

Expressing his elation on social media, Reynolds, taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, reflected on the journey, stating, “A few years ago, if you told me I would be crying tears of joy over a football match taking place in North Wales, you would be Rob McElhenney.” His heartfelt congratulations to Wrexham and his partner-in-crime resonated with fans, as they gear up for the challenges ahead.

McElhenney, echoing the sentiment, simply posted “No words” alongside a heart emoji, capturing the overwhelming emotions of the moment.

Since assuming ownership in February 2021, the duo’s influence has been profound, garnering global attention for the club. The acclaimed FX documentary series, “Welcome To Wrexham,” has been instrumental in showcasing their journey, earning accolades such as five Emmys, including outstanding unstructured reality programme. As they continue to rewrite the club’s narrative, the future looks promising under their stewardship.
