Ryan Reynolds talks about his first experience as the owner of Wrexham A.F.C.
Ryan and Rob McElhenny have been in the headlines lately, whether it’s their wholesome romance or the purchase of Wrexham Association football club. However, initially buying a football team led the owners to an emotional roller coaster. Wrexham AFC has been playing in the National League for the last few years, trying to finally get back into the Football League.
Ryan and McElhenny got to know the National League Football League for the first time live on a cold October evening in Maidenhead. The duo’s first arrival was booed by the home fans. In addition, a series of “You bought the wrong club chants” followed. Ryan wasn’t a fan of it, as the Deadpool actor said: “I don’t know how people do it, it’s heartbreaking.”
Moreover, their first appearance as the new owners of the team was eventful. Maidenhead scored two goals in two minutes, and Bryce Hosanna won himself a red card, as a result of which the Wrexham team was reduced to 10 people. In the end, despite Wrexham scoring two goals, Maidenhead won 3-2.
