Ryan Reynolds drops Wrexham hint in message to Luton Town

Ryan Reynolds has dropped a hint about his ambitions for Wrexham AFC after sending a congratulatory message to Luton Town.

It was an amazing day at Wembley on Saturday as Luton booked their place in the Premier League for the first time and a place back in England's top tier for the first time since 1992.

Luton boss Rob Edwards was understandably very emotional at full time following captain Tom Lockyer's collapsing just 10 minutes into Saturday's game.

They needed penalties to defeat Coventry City, who themselves were looking to return to the big time after a 22 year hiatus, succeeding in their target just nine years after they'd been in the Conference Premier League.



It was a particularly amazing day for Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu who has played for his club at every level since those non-league days and can complete the set next season.

Mpanzu would have come up against Wrexham in the division now known as the National League long before Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought the Welsh side.

They themselves are now back in the Football League following their own promotion by being crowned as National League champions.


And Reynolds sent a message to the Hatters that also hinted that he was eyeing similar success of rising to the Premier League.

Taking to Twitter the Hollywood star posted: "Congrats to Luton Town and also [eyes emoji]."

Reynolds and co-owner Rob McElhenney have some big ambitions for the team from North Wales, who they bought three years ago for £2 million.


They were worried what failure to get promoted would cost them but they ended up going up with a record number of points, which they certainly needed due to Notts County being so close.

The Red Dragons are already one of the favourites to get promoted from League Two next season and tipped to eventually reach the Premier League.

One expert thinks that will cost them around £200 million more than their investment so far, as they look to climb up the football pyramid.

They will get a boost in earning some of that money by the fact that the stadium will be known as the SToK Racecourse from next season, due to a new sponsorship agreement.
