It’s the favourite trailer firm of Hollywood A-listers Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

When they announced to the world that they had succeeded with their takeover of historic Wrexham AFC, they did so with a with a hilarious spoof advert for long-term sponsors Ifor Williams Trailers.

Many of the staff who work for the company are diehard fans and were thrilled to see that the video was viewed more than five million times within days of being posted on social media.

But the iconic firm are longstanding partners when it comes to supporting the club.

They became the front of shirt sponsors in 2016 and are still the main local sponsor with their distinctive logo now adorning the club’s shorts.

Ryan and Rob gave Ifor Williams Trailers another starring role when they unveiled TikTok as the new shirt sponsors.

Then came the “trailer on a trailer” to promote Ryan’s film, Red Notice, co-starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Gal Gadot aka Wonder Woman.

The Leader:

As part of the promo, a giant television screen was professionally mounted onto an 18 ft long LM187 trailer made by Europe’s largest trailer maker.

Like everybody else, the Wrexham fans at the trailer firm are hoping for a happy Hollywood ending with success in the National League play offs.

In the meantime, glory hopefully beckons in the 2022 FA Trophy Final against Bromley at Wembley Stadium on May 22.

Ifor Williams Trailers Director Carole Williams said: “Wrexham is a proper football town and the club has the best fans in the world.

The Leader:

“For us, the partnership makes a lot of sense, particularly because the club’s  community focus is a great fit for our ethos and values.

“When the pandemic struck, we pledged to stick by the club and honour our sponsorship agreement even though things looked pretty bleak at the time, with no immediate prospect of games being played at the Racecourse.

“It’s fair to say it’s been a real rollercoaster of a ride but little did we expect what was to come next with the absolutely incredible news that Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds wanted to take over the club.

“We were particularly encouraged to see that Ryan and Rob had done their homework to get under the skin of the club. They clearly understood and respected the club’s history, its sense of community and the passion of the fans.

“Just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, we were blown away and humbled when Rob and Ryan used a hilarious spoof sales video for one of our horseboxes as the vehicle to announce the takeover.

“Just as it was five years ago, our values are still aligned in wanting to make a positive difference to the wider community in Wrexham.

“But now we can also dream big. All we need is a great Hollywood ending when we reach the promised land of the Football League and, who knows, we might even reach the Premier League one day – especially if Rob and Ryan are writing the script.”
