Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney get huge ovation from Wrexham fans as they watch first home game since buying club

HOLLYWOOD came to north Wales as A-listers Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney attended their first Wrexham home game.

The celebrity pair have spent the week getting behind the club they bought back in February.

They downed pints and shots with locals at a nearby pub two days before kick-off as they got to know fans.

And they were in the stands on Saturday to witness the Red Dragons draw 1-1 with Conference Premier rivals Torquay.

The new owners were greeted with a standing ovation from home fans as they walked out at the Racecourse Ground ahead of kick-off.

They strode across the pitch to chants of ‘Wrexham, Wrexham’ before shaking hands with their coaching staff.

Pictures showed the famous pals celebrating as Harry Lennon put the hosts ahead after just four minutes.

But the visiting Gulls would spoil the party with a late equaliser as Connor Lemonheigh-Evans ensured it would finish 1-1.
