ROB McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds have paid tribute to Wrexham AFC's longest serving steward following sad news of his death. 

Roger Lloyd was a steward at STōK Cae Ras for just shy of 50 years, with his last match being the Newport County game on December 23. 

His son-in-law posted on X (formerly Twitter) announcing Roger's sad passing, after he fell ill on Christmas Eve. 

To celebrate Roger's life and his service to Wrexham AFC, a minute's applause is being organised in the 48th minute of the New Year's Day match against Barrow - to mark the 48 years he spent as a steward.

Replying to the post, Wrexham AFC co-owner Rob McElhenney said: "So sorry to hear this news. Sending love to your whole family. Happy to spread the word of this tribute and will reach out about anything we can do to show our gratitude to this wonderful man", accompanied by a heart emoji. 

Co-owner, Ryan Reynolds, remarked on Roger's amazing service, adding: "48 years!" with a heartbroken emoji. 

Dozens of Wrexham AFC fans sent tributes and messages of condolence.

One said: "My most deepest and sincerest condolences to all your family and friends. I have had the pleasure of knowing Roger for 30 plus years at the Racecourse and The Rock. Always a consummate gentleman. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in eternal peace."

Another added: "So sorry to hear of Roger's passing. Such a lovely and friendly man with great stories of his time at #WxmAFC. We will miss his smile and insider knowledge."
