Diehard Wexham AFC fans who work at Ifor Williams Trailers have spoken of their delight after featuring in a hilarious viral video by Ryan Reynolds.

The club’s co-owner has been at it again – plugging the club he bought will fellow A-lister Rob McElhenney and his favourite trailer maker who have factories in Corwen and Cynwyd, in Denbighshire.

The Hollywood icon created a “trailer on a trailer” to promote his new film, Red Notice, also starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Gal Gadot aka Wonder Woman.

As part of the promo, a giant television screen was professionally mounted onto a trailer made by the Welsh firm and waved off by a group of six Wrexham fans who work for the company.

Rob Small, the Head of Sales at Ifor Williams Trailers Group of companies said: “It was all very hush hush. When Netflix arrived at our site at Boundary Park in Deeside I had five members of staff, one from each of our sites, ready for action.

“All I was allowed to do before hand was ask them whether they would like to be involved with something to do with Wrexham football club, would they mind having their photographs taken, would they mind wearing their Wrexham football shirts and would they mind having a lateral flow test.

“Our team, were delighted to give the ‘trailer on a trailer’ a warm Welsh send off from the factory."

Purchase ledger clerk Paul Mathias is a lifelong Wrexham fan after being taken as a six year old to watch a match at the Racecourse by his grandfather in the late 1970s, just before they were promoted to old Second Division (now the Championship) under legendary manager John Neal.

Paul said: “I’ve supported the club through good times and bad times, mostly poor over the past ten years if I’m honest.

“Hopefully, the good times are coming back now and we’re all hoping for a happy Hollywood ending.

“I was a bit nervous to begin with but as soon as we got down to it, it was a good laugh as well. It was a lot of fun but I’m not going to give up my day job just yet.”

Forklift truck driver Les Morris was bitten by the bug when he saw Wrexham demolish Bradford 6-0 back in 1966.

He said: “The filming with Netflix is probably the strangest experience I have had as a Wrexham fan.

The last decade has been really dire so hopefully what’s happening now with Ryan and Rob is brilliant. The whole place is absolutely buzzing at the moment and future is looking really good.

“We still have a great fanbase. The number of fans who go to watch the matches is amazing. The sky’s the limit.”

Materials planner Hannah Philpott was equally delighted to be involved in the filming having been born and raised to be Wrexham fan.

She said: “It was all very top secret and really surreal to be honest. I ended up getting a tee shirt with Ryan Reynolds’ face on it.

“They showed us a clip of the film on the big screen and I must say it was a very action-packed scene with Ryan and The Rock. I’m definitely going to be watching the film.”
