A WREXHAM man who worked on both of Marvel's Deadpool films spoke of his surprise at finding out the man behind the mask is looking to buy his home town's football club.

Last week the Leader reported how Wrexham Supporters Trust voted to allow talks about the sale of Wrexham AFC to go ahead with "two extremely well-known individuals of high net worth".

David Edwards, 35, took to Twitter after it was revealed Ryan Reylolds and fellow actor Rob McElhenney were the two potential investors.

He said the reveal meant his life had "come full circle" as he is a Wrexham fan who moved to Vancouver - where Mr Reynolds is from - and has worked on both of his hugely popular Deadpool movies.

Mr Edwards moved to Vancouver in 2009 and is a focus puller - a role in the film industry which involves controlling camera lenses.

He has also worked on DC TV shows including Arrow and Supergirl.

On the recent revelation about Wrexham AFC's possible future, he said: "It was just surreal to hear, I thought it was a joke. "You don't tend to hear the words Ryan Reynolds and Wrexham together.

"I was a season ticket holder for quite a few years between the 90s and mid 2000's and when I go home I try to catch a game.

"My friends know where I am from but Wrexham isn't really a place people know.

"It's been on the news here too because Ryan Reynolds is from Vancouver."

On the subject of why Mr Reynolds might have chosen Wrexham to potentially invest in, he said: "I imagine he is looking for a project, maybe to build the club up and see where it goes."

Asked what he'd say to Mr Reynolds about the club and town, he added: "Wrexham people are good and the potential of the club is good.

"With some backing they could do very well."
