‘There’s only one Ryan Reynolds,’ rang out at the Racecourse Ground as Wrexham ended Stockport’s 21-game unbeaten run to reach the final of the FA Trophy at Wembley.
Wrexham will make a long-awaited return to England’s national stadium, for the first time since a loss to North Ferriby United in 2015, and fans were plenty thankful for their Hollywood owner.
Deadpool star Reynolds was in attendance to witness the win, which was secured in dramatic fashion as Paul Mullin bagged a stoppage-time brace to take victory.
Mullin, who was the first headline signing under Reynold’s ownership, was even able to celebrate with his employer post-match, with the American superstar running on pitch to hug his striker.
That was only after a delighted Reynolds was able to enjoy fans chanting his name during the celebrations, with scepticism over Hollywood ownership making way for approval.
Reynolds purchased the Welsh side in February 2021 alongside fellow owner and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Rob McElhenney.
The duo have enjoyed plenty of off-field success with a number of advertisement videos going viral, including one that involved striker Mullin, with hilarious results.

On pitch things continue to improve, with the club recently landing former League One striker Ollie Palmer to add to League Two’s single-season record scorer Mullin.
The club also secured former Charlton, Bolton and Sunderland manager Phil Parkinson during the summer, and are sat second in the National League table, behind Stockport who currently occupy the league’s automatic promotion place.
And they now have a chance to crown their first season under their new Hollywood ownership with silverware, as they face Bromley in the FA Trophy final.
English football’s feel-good story of the year just keeps getting better.
