Nantwich Town made a cheeky jibe at Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds during the club's pre-season friendly against the Reds. 

It was a return to action for Phil Parkinson's men, following the heartbreaking end to the 2021/22 campaign. 

Wrexham travelled to face 'The Dabbers' before they head off on their pre season tour to Spain, where they will face Nottingham Forest under 23s. 

It was a winning start to pre-season for the Reds who ran out 5-2 victors

Aaron Hayden and Trialist A scored in the opening period either side of a Dabbers leveller before Phil Parkinson named a different side for the second half and Kai Evans got the third goal.

Liam McAlinden made it 4-1 and after Nantwich reduced the deficit, last season's leading marksman Paul Mullin completed the scoring for the Reds.

On announcing Super Paul's goal, Nantwich Town took a swipe at Wrexham's co-owner Ryan Reynolds on their Twitter page. 

They said: "Goal Wrexham. Paul Mullin makes it 5, which is also the score out of 10 on IMDb for Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds."

For all of the brilliant films the Reds co-owner has been in, it's clear Nantwich Town don't think Green Lantern is near the top. 

Ryan, well known for his role in the Deadpool films as well as many other Hollywood hits, will see his and Rob McElhenney's documentary 'Welcome to Wrexham' released next month. 

It will be available in the UK from August 25. 

Wrexham are next in action on July 23, when they will take on Forest's youngsters.
