Rob McElhenney posts sick note for Wrexham fan desperate to watch FA Cup clash with Blackburn

Rob McElhenney posts sick note for Wrexham fan desperate to watch FA Cup clash with Blackburn

Wrexham face Blackburn Rovers on Monday evening.

Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney has penned a hilarious sick note for one supporter desperate to watch the club's FA Cup fourth-round clash with Blackburn Rovers.

The League Two outfit travel to Ewood Park on Monday evening, hoping to complete a giant-killing.

Rovers are 18th in the Championship, two divisions above the Red Dragons.

Wrexham are two wins away from reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals.

It's something they've not achieved since 1997 and it'd be another feather in the caps of McElhenney and fellow co-owner Ryan Reynolds.

Both men are well-ingrained in the community nowadays and McElhenney decided to come to the aid of a fan who wants to watch the game at all costs.

@WrexhamCanada on X asked: "Hey @VancityReynolds, @RMcElhenney and @Wrexham_AFC, can you provide me with a sick note for work so I can watch the match on Monday?"

McElhenney took notice and went the extra mile. The 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' star shared a note to his 1.1 million followers titled 'Official Sick Note'.

He said: "To whom it may concern, @WrexhamCanada is hereby excused from work on Monday, January 29, 2024.

"They have a weird cough or something. If that’s not enough of an excuse, let’s go with the flu.

"Wouldn’t you hate to catch it if they showed up to work in that condition? They are cleared to come back on Tuesday, January 30, 2024.

"Oh, I think that happens to be the day after the Wrexham match. Weird timing. Best wishes, Dr. McElhenney."

Wrexham are currently second in League Two, five points behind leaders Stockport County.

A second successive promotion isn't out of the question and manager Phil Parkinson believes Wrexham could one day become a Premier League side.

Parkinson pointed to the success stories of Bournemouth and Luton Town, who are Premier League sides despite years of struggle.

Luton's win in the Championship play-off final last year came a decade after knocking Wrexham out of the National League play-offs.

"Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds have always said they want to take Wrexham to the Premier League," he said.

"People may think they’re getting carried away with themselves, but when you look at teams like Luton Town and Bournemouth who have made it into the Premier League, it’s not impossible."
