Ben Foster details what happened during Wrexham's post-promotion party in Ryan Reynolds' box

Were you also wondering what Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney got up to after Wrexham AFC sealed promotion to the English Football League? Well thankfully Ben Foster - who attended their post-match party - has us covered.
Foster, a former Watford and West Bromwich Albion keeper, signed for Wrexham for the final few months of the current season, to try and help The Red Dragons seal promotion from the National League in style.
Foster quickly dispelled any notion of the late transfer being just a publicity stunt by saving a last-minute penalty to deny title-rivals Notts County a draw earlier this month. Instead, Wrexham would go on to win that game 3-2, before sealing promotion last weekend in a 3-1 home win against Boreham Wood. In the hours following that match, Deadpool star Reynolds hosted a party in his box at the Racecourse Ground - where 40-year-old Foster was also in attendance.
Speaking on his Fozcast show, the stopper explained that Reynolds and McElhenney invited the squad up to the box after they had thoroughly doused the home dressing room in beer.
"We went over to Rob and Ryan's box, and that was it. 'Crack on' basically," Foster said on the Fozcast.
"We stayed in there until about midnight, pure vibes honestly. It was so good. Music playing, but we didn't have a speaker system.
"A few of the lads brought the changing room bass player and connected it to Spotify. So at any moment they were playing some of the dressing room songs or even some of the players songs. Everybody was just singing and it was so good.
"And then at midnight we went for a little walk around Wrexham, went to a few bars and pubs, but it was carnage. There was players everywhere, fans everywhere, but nobody cared."
For the Hollywood owners, it was their crowning glory after almost two years at the helm. The pair purchased the Welsh club back in 2021 with the initial aim of returning to the EFL for the first time since 2008.
Having now accomplished that, Reynolds has even suggested the Premier League could one day be in reach, although its safe to assume Foster won't be at the promotion party if they make it that far.
