READERS have been sending in birthday messages to one-half of Wrexham AFC's star ownership following another memorable weekend for both himself and the club.

Rob McElhenney took over as co-chairmen of the north Wales club alongside friend and fellow actor Ryan Reynolds in early 2021.

And the club has enjoyed incredible success ever since, even making it back-to-back promotions over the weekend.

Wrexham's emphatic 6-0 win at home to Forest Green Rovers saw them secure a move up to EFL League One for the 2024/25 season.

And there was a double celebration for Rob the day after that as he turned 47 years old on Sunday (April 14).

We asked our readers to send in their birthday messages to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star on his big day.

Here are some of the best of them ...

Scott Williams said: "Thanks for making Wrexham great again, made the whole town a better place to be, well done on the promotion too, top job."

Jill Howell added: "Happy birthday Rob what a fabulous present you got yesterday!"
