Fans love Ryan Reynolds' incredible interview after Wrexham beat Notts County in National League thriller

Ryan Reynolds has received huge praise for his brilliant interview after watching Wrexham beat Notts County in a breathtaking 3-2 win at the Racecourse ground.

The Dragons found themselves 1-0 down at the end of the first half after John Bostock bent in a gorgeous free-kick in the top of the table clash.

Paul Mullin equalised just after half-time before Jacob Mendy put Wrexham in the lead. Notts skipper Kyle Cameron replied six minutes later only for Elliot Lee to pop up with a winner.

There was huge drama in the dying embers as Notts were awarded a last-gasp penalty for handball but 40-year-old Ben Foster, fresh out of retirement, produced a heroic 96th minute save from 12 yards to deny Cedwyn Scott and send Wrexham three points clear.

It was an incredible contest and one which left Wrexham co-owner Reynolds struggled for words at first.

He gave a fantastic interview to BT Sport afterwards, revealing the impact the game had on his heart and how he's grateful he didn't become involved in football earlier on because of the toll it takes.

Showing his class, Reynolds also talked up Notts County for the fantastic season they are having and gave a special mention to the club's late CEO Jason Turner, who passed away unexpectedly last month.

One fan raved: "What a class act. His team’s just all but clinched promotion and he gives so much praise to Notts County and pays his respect to a member of their board who passed away recently rather than dwell solely on Wrexham. Wonderful human being and club owner, top man."

A second concurred: "This guy is a class act."

Another opined: "Folk seem to hate Wrexham as they’ve got a bit of money but I just don’t get how you can, two of the most likeable owners around and a proper club."

A fourth tweeted: "Fair play to @VancityReynolds for the praise he gives us here, and his classy words about Jason Turner."

A fifth said: "The most likeable guy in the sport right now."

A final user wrote: "It’s so refreshing seeing owners actually care and engage with their club, fans and the sport, especially if it’s something new to them, like Ryan Reynolds. Really nice interview as well, he gets it."

Reynolds also joked that hero Ben Foster will be on the injured list "because I'm gonna break ribs I'm gonna hug him so hard".

Wrexham return to action against Barnet on Saturday 15 April as they close in on promotion back to the big time.
