FOR 156 years Wrexham FC and Hollywood weren’t utilized in the identical sentence however, proving life actually is sort of a field of goodies, they’re now!
Film stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have swapped the boards, for the borders, and only gone and bought Wrexham FC.
Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds is the brand new co-owner of Welsh facet Wrexham
Reynolds’ fellow actor and co-owner Rob McElhenney goals to make Wrexham a world drive
While I can’t fairly see Arnie heading into the city’s Fats Boar pub, or Margot Robbie strolling into the Outdated No7 Bar, however this was definitely large information in just a little nook of Wales.
Some would possibly assume that McElhenney, well-known for taking part in Ronald McDonald within the comedy sequence ‘It’s at all times sunny in Philadelphia’ should certainly be a couple of gherkins wanting a quarter-pounder.
Or that his pal Reynolds, an government producer of an American quiz present referred to as ‘Don’t’ would possibly nicely have taken his personal recommendation.
Taking possession of a membership which has loved solely modest success since 1864 is unquestionably a brave factor to do, however I for one applaud their bravado.
Up till now, in footballing phrases, Wrexham was on the map for being the hometown of Mark ‘Sparky’ Hughes and Robbie ‘Afghan Hound’ Savage, which suggests they like their soccer red-blooded in north Wales.
Each Sav and Sparky excelled by enjoying a type of rugby, combined in with just a little little bit of soccer, in step with their Welshness I suppose!
Fairly what Reynolds and McElhenney will make of Welsh cake, rarebit and black beer is anybody’s guess. And don’t even get me began on their place names.
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch feels like a fairly powerful away recreation, however apparently its 58 letters in Welsh really means St Mary’s church within the hole of the white hazel close to a speedy whirlpool and the Church of St Tysilio of the purple cave.
Good to know they hold issues easy within the Principality.
Anyway, victory at Hartlepool, not Hollywood, in midweek means Wrexham are sitting in mid-table, to date solely bit half actors within the Nationwide League.
So you possibly can due to this fact perceive why followers voted by over 98 percent for Reynolds and McElhenney to take over their club.
And I wager the 2 per cent who voted in opposition to weren’t ladies.
Their first match shall be attention-grabbing and who is aware of, the pair may stand on the terraces at the moment at dwelling to Aldershot and I’m certain they’ll get a really heat welcome.
The tinseltown pair have mentioned they’ll pump £2million into the membership instantly, which ought to quickly see the Dragons flying up the league.
That is nice information for the membership and their supporters which can give them one thing to smile about on this hellacious 2020.
No matter occurs to Wrexham’s fortunes, not less than they now have the 2010 Individuals journal ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ within the type of Ryan Reynolds, and no doubt the clear and excellent winner (and solely runner!) of Worlds Sexiest Soccer Membership Proprietor 2020 on the helm!
Wrexham at present sit in thirteenth spot within the Nationwide League desk
‘Deadpool’ star Reynolds’ brother is a Canadian Mountie so the pair shall be at dwelling on the Racecourse floor and with £2m within the coffers, successful the league ought to be a canter.
Good luck to Ryan and Rob. They are going to want it. However will this be a catastrophe film, or a blockbuster? Are the field of goodies old-fashioned, or the best Swiss Lindt?
Personally, I hope this finally ends up being the most important Rom-Com of all time.
