Wrexham owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are ‘like giddy schoolboys and are never out of the dressing room’ | The Sun

WREXHAM owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney "are never out of the dressing room" and act like "giddy schoolboys" around the players.

Hollywood actor Reynolds, 46, and TV star McElhenney, 46, took over the non-league club in 2020.

And they are on the brink of promotion back to the Football League for the first time in 15 years.

A 3-0 victory over Yeovil on Tuesday night took them four points clear of Notts County at the top of the table with just two games remaining.

It means a win at home to Boreham Wood on Saturday would clinch their place in the fourth tier.

Reynolds and McElhenney often fly over from America for Wrexham's games.

Most recently, they were in attendance for the team's crucial 3-2 win over Notts County on April 10.

And club director Humphrey Ker has revealed the pair are always heading into the dressing room to meet the players.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: "We like to do things a bit differently at Wrexham.

“I heard about Todd Boehly going into the Chelsea dressing room, and the one thing we’ve tried to really foster at Wrexham is the relationship between the players, the management and the ownership – that we’re all in this together pulling in the same direction.

"Rob and Ryan are never out of the dressing room, to be honest, when they are over [from the United States].

"They wait until after the game, but they still have this giddy schoolboy thing that they can’t believe that they are allowed in there.

"I know that kind of connection is one they are really proud of and we are really proud of.

"We hope it makes it a fun place to come and play and watch and generally a fun place to work, which has got to be a good thing."

The American takeover has seen the emergence of a "Welcome to Wrexham" documentary detailing the club's journey since Reynolds and McElhenney began trying to obtain the Welsh outfit.

And Ker has now hinted Wrexham could well feature in Deadpool 3 – a sequel of Reynolds' hit-film franchise.

He added: "I genuinely don't know for sure, we've not had this conversation [whether Wrexham will feature in Deadpool].

"But I'd be quite surprised if not because all the elements of his [Reynolds'] life and his career and everything all intersect in all sorts of different ways.
