A WREXHAM AFC co-chairman has shown fans he is literally on the edge of his seat watching the latest match.

Deadpool legend and AFC co-chairman Ryan Reynolds has taken to social media during half time of today's Wrexham v Shrewsbury FA Cup match (Sunday, January 7).

The star shared a photo of himself sitting next to his close friend Hugh Jackman, who visited Wrexham's racecourse back in August 2023.

The comedic caption referred to Hugh as his character name in the 2012 film adaptation of Les Misérables, in which he played Jean Valjean, or rather, prisoner 24601.


Wrexham are playing Shrewsbury away in the third round of the FA Cup to make it to the next stage.

A maximum total of 1,655 tickets have sold out to Red fans who have travelled to watch the lads play, leaving an anxious Ryan Reynolds to watch from overseas. 

We are wishing the team a fantastic game. Up the town!
