WREXHAM AFC'S co-chairmen have shown their admiration for another club which is currently on an unforgettable FA Cup run of its own.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have taken Wrexham on an incredible journey since their takeover of the club was completed nearly three years ago.

That has included promotion back to the EFL after a 15-year absence, a documentary all about the club and its community and some memorable FA Cup moments.

Another club currently on a formidable run in the historic cup competition is Maidstone United.

The Kent-based club, who play in the National League, have reached the fifth round of the cup after beating Ipswich Town 2-1 away on Saturday (January 27).

That followed on from another big win over Stevenage in the previous round.


Following Maidstone's latest victory, Wrexham's chairmen took to social media to show their admiration for the club.

Writing on X (formerly Twitter), It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia star Rob said: "Congratulations Maidstone United what an incredible achievement!!!!!"

Deadpool actor Ryan simply added: "Massive!", followed by two heart emojis.

Wrexham themselves could well be joining Maidstone in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

A trip to Blackburn Rovers awaits the Reds tonight (January 29) and, should they win that, then a home tie against Premier League side Newcastle United will be on the cards.
