WREXHAM AFC's co-chairman has given his thoughts on an impressive weekend at the Racecourse. 

Ryan Reynolds was in attendance at the Racecourse twice over the weekend, alongside co-chairman Rob McElhenney, as well as his wife Blake Lively and four children. 

On Saturday, the Hollywood duo took in Wrexham's 3-0 win over York City which maintained their place at the top of the National League. 

It was the biggest crowd of the season at the Racecourse so far as 10,161 watched on, with a Ryan Whitely own goal and goals from Sam Dalby and Elliot Lee wrapping up the points for the Reds. 

Ryan was back at the Racecourse on Sunday to watch a record-breaking win for the women's side. 

Steven Dale's team overcame Connah's Quay Nomads 2-1 thanks to goals from TJ Dickens and Rosie Hughes as the title-winning side made it 12 from 12 in the league. 


A record crowd of 9,511 watched on, which shattered the previous biggest attendance of 5,175 between Cardiff City and Abergavenny. 

Following the game, the ladies enjoyed their trophy presentation and were cheered on by the thousands in attendance, something that almost brought the co-chairmen to tears. 

Ryan said on Twitter: "Two days of Wrexham football. Nearly 20,000 people passed through the gates to see @Wrexham_AFC win — but the main event; @WrexhamAFCWomen winning it all and hoisting the big trophy. These women played their guts out and @RMcElhenney and I couldn’t be prouder or more choked up."

The Deadpool star also paid tribute to Connah's Quay Nomads, who played their part in the record-breaking game. 

He added: "And huge thanks to @the_nomads. I was lucky enough to meet them after the match. Played with heart and grit every second."
