ROB McELHENNEY and Ryan Reynolds are looking to put Wrexham Football Club on the map after their takeover was confirmed.

The Hollywood stars were waiting on the outcome of an Extraordinary Ballot, which rubber-stamped the duo's proposed takeover of the club from the Wrexham Supporters Trust with over 98 per cent voting 'yes' to all three resolutions.

And having been given the news that their takeover is to go through, the duo released a video via Wrexham's official website.

Having mentioned shirt sponsor Ifor Williams Trailers, McElhenney asked why?

He said: "Well, because we just became owners of Wrexham Association Football Club and they're our team sponsor.

"You may have never heard of Wrexham, The Racecourse Ground or Ifor Williams, but you will.

"So to the Wrexham Supporters Trust, thank you for your faith and trust in us."

Reynolds added: "We are humbled and we are already getting to work.

"Holy s*** this is really happening." 

The Deadpool star later tweeted a picture of Wrexham's crest with 'Wrexham is the name' as the caption.

Ifor Williams Trailers director Carole Williams, who backed the sponsorship agreement with Wrexham AFC, and has shown solid and consistent support, was delighted by the result of the vote – and the way it was announced.

She said: “We were totally blown away and humbled by the way the announcement was made. Not unexpectedly, it was done in a funny and totally original way. It was just incredible.

“But make no mistake, Ryan and Rob are not taking their responsibilities lightly. They are utterly serious about revitalising the club and transforming it into a global force – but without forgetting its roots.

“The reason Ifor Williams Trailers felt that Wrexham was the perfect fit was the club’s credentials as a grassroots, community-focused and fan-centred club. We were delighted to hear that Ryan and Rob have pledged to reinforce the values, traditions and legacy of this community.

“They have clearly grasped the intense loyalty of the fans and what the club means to them and how that love is woven into the fabric of the town and the wider community.

“Ryan and Rob have certainly got off on the right foot and the fans are right behind them, as are we at Ifor Williams Trailers. Like all the other fans we’re dreaming of a happy Hollywood ending.”

Production operative Kevin Roberts, 63, was among the 22,000 fans who packed the Racecourse when Wrexham played Anderlecht in the Cup Winners’ Cup during the 1975/76 season.

He said: “It was an incredible experience. They were great days and hopefully we’re going to enjoy some more good times now.

“There are a lot of Wrexham fans who work here so there’s a terrific buzz about it.”
