The club initially aimed to raise around £480 in order to buy new gear but Reynolds generously handed over more than triple the amount after being made aware of the cause.
Manager Andrew Ruscoe expressed his gratitude towards Reynolds for his generous donation to FC United of Wrexham’s Under-12 futsal side.
The new purple kit features a small Deadpool logo on the arm, which is a reference to Reynolds’ Hollywood exploits. Ruscoe explained that the gesture means a lot to the young players and the club as a whole and that they are excited to wear the new kit in upcoming matches.
“The boys received it this week and they obviously fell in love with it,” he told PA. “They were coming out with comments like ‘this is mint’ and ‘the kits are amazing’ – the smiles on their faces were overwhelming. We only needed about £480, he definitely trebled that for us.”
