Ryan Reynolds revealed that he along with co-owner Rob McElhinney has high ambitions for Wrexham. He believes that the success of the football club is important for the growth of the community. Reynolds and McElhinney made a high-profile takeover of Wrexham having made a £2m investment. Wrexham are playing their 14th season of non-league football after narrowly missing out on the playoffs last season. Reynolds is not deterred and vows to play an active role in the club.
“We cannot wait to start the new season… We’re going to be over there all the time.” Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds said. ”I am proud to say it was never a joke. We take the growing and building of both Wrexham AFC and Wrexham the community very seriously. In a town like Wrexham, if the football club is going to do very well, the community has to do very well.”
“It is one of the oldest football clubs on the planet, it’s a hard-working town filled with incredibly passionate and interesting people… We’re not attempting to be the smartest people in the room – there are people in Wrexham who know more about football than I will ever know,” he added.
Wrexham owners appointed ex-Sunderland manager Phil Parkinson as the manager after dean Keates left the club once his contract expired. They have not been able to visit the club due to coronavirus restrictions in the country. He revealed that he has found out things about the club more interesting than he imagined.
