Ryan Reynolds praised Wrexham after leading National League

Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds, co-owner of Wrexham, praised both his team and opponents Notts County for their performance in a thrilling 3-2 match that put Wrexham three points ahead in the National League.

In a thrilling match that saw a total of five goals scored, the Welsh team emerged victorious over the top-ranked team in their division.

The game was capped off with a dramatic moment in the 97th minute when goalkeeper Ben Foster saved a penalty.

Phil Parkinson’s side now has a total of 103 points for the season, which is just three points ahead of County.

Reynold’s side are very close to promotion from the National League.

They also have an additional game to play compared to their rivals, following two seasons of breaking records.

After the game, Hollywood star Reynolds, who co-owns the club with fellow actor Rob McElhenney, promptly acknowledged the contribution of both his team’s opponents and Foster’s crucial performance.

Reynolds said: “It was a pressure cooker coming into this, I think, for both of these teams. What both have achieved is historic on every level.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like that. When I get my hands on Ben Foster, he’s going to be on the injured reserve list, I’m going to break ribs.

“I’m going to hug him so hard. I don’t feel like I have a heart anymore. I feel like I used all the beats I have left during that match.”

Reynolds added: “That was unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and indicative of all you lifers who have watched and participated in this beautiful, tortuous game forever.

“I’m actually grateful at this moment that I didn’t care about this years ago because it would have just eaten me alive. That was really something.”
