List of acts of kindness from Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney show they are the dream owners

Wrexham's Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have done so much for the club since their takeover in 2020.

The club are on the brink of promotion to League Two after their stellar campaign in the National League this season.

If they earn promotion, it'll cap off a brilliant journey, with Reynolds and McElhenney working wonders off the pitch.

From charitable donations to helping out local teams. Here's some of their acts of kindness since taking charge of the Welsh side.

Reynolds isn't just looking after the first-team as he helped provide kits for a local youth team. FC United of Wrexham U12s were in need of gear, with the Wrexham co-owner donating £1,600 to the cause.

Kayleigh Burton, who made the appeal online, said: "I’m lost for words, and over the moon. Thank you Ryan for putting a smile on the team’s face, if thank you is even enough. Keegen is Wrexham’s number one fan. His dad would be made up for him and bursting with pride."

Reynolds and McElhenney marked the anniversary of their takeover by delivering a bar tab for 365 G&Ts at The Turf Hotel near the club's ground.

"Just a quick note to thank each and every one of you on our 1-year anniversary with the club," they wrote. "The love and adoration for Wrexham FC - it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen. That’s why we’ve put up 365 Aviation Gin and Tonics behind the bar. Have one on us."

Revamping the club

Reynolds and McElhenney have bolstered the surroundings at the Racecourse Ground, kitting it out with a new gym. They also have wider plans, which includes building a modern training centre and a new Kop stand to hold over 5,000 fans.
