Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have been given the all clear for their proposed takeover of National League side Wrexham, with 98% of the supporters trust voting in favour of the takeover.

Reynold and McElhenney, who will no doubt be the most recognisable owners in the non league confirmed the news on social media, in typically jokey fashion - with a brilliant advert for the club's sponsor.







In a statement on their website, the Welsh side confirmed details of the vote to accept 'Deadpool' and Mac's proposal.

"The Wrexham Supporters Trust Board would like to thank all members who took the time to vote and take part in the process relating to the Extraordinary Ballot. There was a significant turnout for the ballot at 91.5%.

"We are now in a position to confirm the result of the vote, which has been independently verified by Mi-Voice, the company assisting the Trust in the process. As can be seen in full detail below, members have voted FOR all three resolutions.

"As such - subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation - the RR McReynolds Company, LLC will take 100% control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST.

"Both parties will now proceed with finalising the details of the takeover, and we will update Wrexham supporters as soon as we can.

"The Wrexham Supporters Trust Board would like to thank Mr Rob McElhenney and Mr Ryan Reynolds, and their advisors Inner Circle Sports and Walker Morris, for their professional and considered approach and for the time they have already put into the process."

The celebrities, who will add a star factor to the National League in a totally different way to the Class of 92 did when Salford City were still in the division did, earned 1,809 votes, with only six votes against.

The club had been fan owned since 2011 but the two actors have promised to use their money and fame to help the club.

Reynolds and McElhenney included up to £2 million of investment in their takeover plan and there is also plans for a Netflix-style documentary about the club under their tutelage.

Speaking at the WST meeting last week Reynolds told fans the pair were planning on being at the Racecourse Ground a lot, "We want to be at the Racecourse Ground as much as possible - as many games as I can make. We want to have a pint with the fans.

"You'll be fed up of us! We want to be great ambassadors for the club, to introduce the club to the world and be a global force."

There's bound to be a lot of interest in Wrexham now!
