RYAN Reynolds has sent a heartwarming message to an 11-year-old from Wrexham who is "going through the ****". 

The Deadpool star followed up his generous donation of £1,600 to FC United of Wrexham's U12 futsal team, by sending a message to one of their players. 

Keegan Barton tragically lost his father, Adam Bradshaw, in September, and alongside his mum, Kayleigh has endured a tough 12 months. 

After Kayleigh set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for a new kit for the U12's at FC United of Wrexham, where Keegan plays, the target was comfortably achieved thanks to a donation from Ryan Reynolds. 

After hearing more about what Keegan has been through, an "inspired" Ryan sent him a personal message. 


The Wrexham co-owner said: "Hey Keegan, it's Ryan Reynolds. 

"I heard a little bit about your story and everything you've been going through and let me tell you something, you've been going through the sh**, there's no other way to say it. 

"I just want to say I'm really inspired by you pal. 

"I'm super excited about everything that's happening in Wrexham and particularly with your team. I'm really inspired by all the amazing things that you guys are doing over there. 

"I can't wait to see you in the new uniform and I can't wait to meet you in person one of these days Keegan. 

"Sending you lots of love from New York."

The message was very well received by Keegan, who sent his own message back to his new pal. 

Keegan said: "Hi Ryan, that video just made my day. 

"Thank you for all the donations and thank you for all the kits. I'm looking forward to meeting you.
