Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney gave an incredible interview after Wrexham sealed their return to the English Football League on Saturday.
Heading into the weekend’s fixtures, Wrexham knew a victory over Boreham Wood would clinch promotion to League Two.
However, they found themselves behind after less than one minute on the back of a defensive mistake.
But they were not to be denied as a goal from Elliott Lee and a brace from Paul Mullin sealed a 3-1 victory.
After the match, Wrexham’s Hollywood owners Reynolds and McElhenny gave a heartwarming interview on the pitch.
Reynolds said: “I am not sure I can process what happened tonight. I am still a little speechless.
“[People ask] 'Why Wrexham?'. This is why Wrexham. This happening, right now, is why. Boreham Wood showed up today. They are an incredible team. They have one of the best defences in the entire league.”
The Deadpool actor then paid tribute to Notts County, he added: “This entire story, the reason we are all on edge of our seats is because Notts County are so damn good. They deserve to go up. We are rooting for Notts County. We want to see them go up.”

“No where else that I would have come to. I know how much it means to them. Seven games I've played - oh my god they [Wrexham fans] are bonkers!”
