FOR 156 years Wrexham FC and Hollywood weren’t utilized in the identical sentence however, proving life actually is sort of a field of sweets, 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 power
While I can’t fairly see Arnie heading into the city’s Fats Boar pub, or Margot Robbie strolling into the Previous No7 Bar, however this was actually large information in somewhat nook of Wales.
Some may assume that McElhenney, well-known for enjoying Ronald McDonald within the comedy collection ‘It’s at all times sunny in Philadelphia’ should certainly be just a few gherkins wanting a quarter-pounder.
Or that his pal Reynolds, an government producer of an American quiz present known as ‘Don’t’ may nicely have taken his personal recommendation.
Taking possession of a membership which has loved solely modest success since 1864 is certainly 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 somewhat little bit of soccer, consistent 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 reasonably powerful away sport, 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 pink 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 this point solely bit half actors within the Nationwide League.
So you possibly can subsequently 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 towards weren’t ladies.
Their first match will probably be attention-grabbing and who is aware of, the pair may stand on the terraces as we speak at house to Aldershot and I’m positive they are going to get a really heat welcome.
The tinseltown pair have stated they are going to 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 is able to give them one thing to smile about on this hellacious 2020.
No matter occurs to Wrexham’s fortunes, no less than they now have the 2010 Folks journal ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ within the type of Ryan Reynolds, and doubtless the clear and excellent winner (and solely runner!) of Worlds Sexiest Soccer Membership Proprietor 2020 on the helm!
Wrexham presently sit in thirteenth spot within the Nationwide League desk
‘Deadpool’ star Reynolds’ brother is a Canadian Mountie so the pair will probably be at house on the Racecourse floor and with £2m within the coffers, profitable the league needs to be a canter.
Good luck to Ryan and Rob. They may want it. However will this be a catastrophe film, or a blockbuster? Are the field of sweets old-fashioned, or the best Swiss Lindt?
Personally, I hope this finally ends up being the most important Rom-Com of all time.
