Watch Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds invade pitch and celebrate with Wrexham matchwinner after watching first ever win

April 3, 2022

HOLLYWOOD star Ryan Reynolds finally witnessed a Wrexham victory in person as the actor and football owner invaded the pitch at the end of their match against Stockport.

Striker Paul Mullin struck a stoppage time brace to hand Wrexham a dramatic 2-0 win in the FA Trophy semi-finals and end Stockport's 21-match unbeaten run.




They will now face Bromley in the final as they return to Wembley for the first time since 2015.

And Reynolds was buzzing to be there for a Wrexham win at the third time of asking having previously seen them lose and draw.

He took over with fellow actor friend Rob McElhenney in February 2021.

Matchwinner Mullin, who has scored 19 goals in 29 games since arriving from League One side Cambridge United, was their first signing as owners of the club and Reynolds sprinted straight over to him when the final whistle went.

The pair embraced in front of the Wrexham fans as chants of "There's only one Ryan Reynolds" rung out around the Racecourse Ground.

Reynolds then took to Twitter after the win, adding: "Seeing this in person was a top ten life moment for me. Thank you, Wrexham."

Reflecting on the game, Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson said: "There was a bit of edginess in the first half and some uncharacteristic errors from both sides, but there was a lot at stake.

"But I thought we grew into the game and a couple of really good chances to take the lead and didn't take them.

"But with Mulls on the pitch you always believe that you're going to get a goal."

Wrexham will now be hoping to clinch some silverware at Wembley, while also focusing on trying to return to the Football League.

The club have not been in League Two since 2008 but currently sit third in the National League.

Their league position would see them go into the play-off semi-finals – while automatic promotion seems unlikely as they are still 11 points off runaway leaders Stockport.
