Ryan Reynolds backs campaign to bring Wrexham to Wembley

Hollywood actor and Wrexham owner Ryan Reynolds has pledged to bring a top club to Wembley for his side’s final FA Trophy appearance.

The 45-year-old Hollywood star and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia creator Rob McElhenney took 100% ownership of the National League team in February 2021.

Since then, the team has come under increased scrutiny and Reynolds continued the good feeling at the club by embarking on a campaign to bring Gareth Davies to the National Stadium in May.

“Rob and I will make sure Gareth makes it to Wembley comfortably,” the Deadpool star tweeted.

“He showed up for @Wrexham_AFC and we will show up for him. #GarethIsGoingToWembley.

Davies, 72, a defender who made hundreds of appearances for Wrexham and captained the side through to the FA Cup and League Cup quarter-finals, suffers from dementia.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise £250 to bring Davies to Wembley for the club’s showdown with Bromley on May 22.

As well as a cup final, Reynolds’ side are also in the running for promotion to the Football League, as they sit second in the National League with just weeks left in the season.

Reynolds told ITV’s Lorraine Kelly: “Me and Rob McElhenney love it. It’s such a passionate project.

“Football in general has really been both the best and the worst thing that has ever happened to me.

“I understand now, I understand the beautiful game as much as I can at this point in life, and it’s a unique brand of magnificent torture that I’ve never experienced before.”
