What Ryan Reynolds gifted Ben Foster from his Hollywood collection
| Last updated
Ryan Reynolds demanded Ben Foster give him his matchworn shirt but he made sure to give the goalkeeper something in return.
After Wrexham secured promotion back to the Football League for the first time in 15 years with a 3-1 win over Boreham Wood at the Racecourse Ground, Foster was taking a press conference when co-owner Reynolds burst in.
The Hollywood star immediately asked Foster to give him his green top, yelling "Foster, jersey now".
He also got the shirt of goalscorer Elliot Lee after the former West Ham midfielder confirmed he was wearing an undershirt.
A member of the media joked that Reynolds was putting the jersey on eBay and he hilariously quipped, "Listen I work in show business, we've fallen on hard times recently."
As seen in Foster's incredible matchday vlog, he and Reynolds had agreed beforehand that the former England international would hand over his top.
But the former Manchester United and Watford man also got a special gift from Reynolds as part of the deal. The Deadpool star decided to surprise Foster by giving him the gloves he wore in the Marvel superhero film.
One glove was gifted to Jay Fear, a Wrexham fan with terminal appendix cancer whose bucket list wish was to meet Reynolds.
He signed the item and also arranged for him to visit the set of the third film.
Much to his delight, Foster ended up being handed the second glove and will add it to his impressive memorabilia.
Speaking on his Fozcast podcast, the 40-year-old explained: "This is incredible right so, Ryan Reynolds text me the day of the [Boreham Wood] game to say, 'can I have your shirt?'.
"I was like 'yeah cool' and he was like 'cool, because I've got something for you as well'.
"I was like 'what on earth's this?' So anyway he texted me yesterday and said 'I forgot to tell you what it is'.
He says, 'I was going through my memorabilia the other day of Deadpool and I found the original gloves that I wore in the film'.'
Reynolds, who has been teasing a move for retired Real Madrid legend Gareth Bale, commented on Foster's Instagram post to say he would also give him the Deadpool underwear.
He wrote: "I'm also gifting you the Deadpool underwear. Which, to be fair, smells better than the shirt you gave me."
Reynolds got excited in the promotion celebrations when Foster told him, "We'll do it again next year," taking it as verbal confirmation.
The 46-year-old replied: "Yes! Alright, that's a contract. He said 'we'll do it again next year' and that's it - done. You just verbally signed!"
Foster is set to play his eighth game since returning to football against Torquay on Saturday and has enjoyed the return so much that he says he is "genuinely going to have sit down and think about this now" in regards to staying put.
Wrexham, who have amassed 110 points to win the National League title, are set for a huge party celebration in Las Vegas.
