Ryan Reynolds was subjected to brutal insult at first Wrexham game

Ryan Reynolds was subjected to brutal insult at first Wrexham game

Ryan Reynolds was verbally abused at his first game watching Wrexham but it didn't put him off.

Ryan Reynolds was insulted at his first Wrexham game but it didn't put off the Deadpool star in the slightest.

Reynolds and fellow Hollywood star Rob McElhenney completed a £2 million purchase of the Dragons in February 2021, taking full control.

They've since invested a further £10 million and Wrexham look set to achieve automatic promotion to League Two next term after a thrilling 3-2 win over title rivals Notts County,

But there was some opposition to the duo, who weren't too clued up on football, buying the Welsh club after it had been run by the Wrexham Supporters Trust.

And in fact, there was a bit of abuse for the new North American owners at the first game they attended. It was against Maidenhead, with Wrexham conceding a 92nd minute goal to draw 1-1 on 29 January.

And comedian Humphrey Ker, who the pair appointed as Executive Director upon acquiring Wrexham, has revealed that the word “c***” was directed at them.

As revealed in the successful Disney+ 'Welcome to Wrexham' documentary, Ker told his pals “that no matter how successful the team is, someone will come up to them and call them a 'c***'".

As per The Independent, Ker recalled: "The first game they attended at Maidenhead they received abuse, and I think they actually enjoyed it.”

Reynolds and co-chairman McElhenney are regularly in attendance at the Racecourse ground as well as the local pub called 'The Turf'.

They've fully immersed themselves into the local community and it's now emerged that Reynolds has bought a new £1.5 million home so he can be even closer to the project.

He's splashed out a four-bed property in Marford and is set to relocate with wife Blake Lively and their four children.

The village is said to have just 2,500 residents, is five miles from Wrexham's stadium and has two pubs - the Red Lion and the Trevor Arms - and a single co-op store.
