WREXHAM AFC’s superstar owners finally saw their team in action in the flesh last night when they put in a surprise appearance at Wrexham's match at Maidenhead.

Speculation had been rife that the Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney could make their first appearance at the club’s The Racecourse home this weekend.

They completed their high-profile takeover of the club in February.

Ryan and Rob surprised the crowd by appearing at the York Road ground in Maidenhead waving to the football fans.

Rumours were widespread that the pair were lining up an appearance alongside one another during the club’s Vanarama National League clash against Torquay United on Saturday.

A new viewing platform has been installed in the Macron Stand and it is understood that is where the pair are expected to watch the match.

Deadpool star Reynolds and McElhenney, famous for his role as Ron in It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, have reportedly been planning to visit The Racecourse for some time, but Covid-19 restrictions have meant this has proved difficult.

The pair’s takeover of Wrexham AFC, which included a £2 million investment, was granted following a unanimous vote of approval from the Wrexham Supporters Trust.

Despite the takeover and signs of promise both on and off the field, Wrexham missed out on promotion from the National League last season.

Wrexham AFC had declined to comment on Reynolds and McElhenney’s potential visit, but supporters will now be more excited than ever at the prospect of seeing their heroes in person at The Racecourse this Saturday.
