Ryan Reynolds backs campaign to bring Wrexham legend to Wembley

Hollywood actor and Wrexham AFC owner Ryan Reynolds has signed on to bring a club legend to Wembley Stadium for his side’s final FA Trophy appearance.

45-year-old Hollywood star and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia creator Rob McElhenney acquired 100% ownership of the National League team in February 2021.

Since then the team has enjoyed increased attention and Reynolds continued the good feeling at the club by committing to a campaign to bring Gareth Davies to the National Stadium in May.

“Rob and I will make sure Gareth makes it to Wembley comfortably,” the Deadpool star tweeted.

“He turned up for @Wrexham_AFC and we will turn up for him. #GarethIsGoingToWembley.”

Davies, 72, a defender who made hundreds of appearances for Wrexham and led the side to the quarter-finals in the FA Cup and League Cup, has dementia.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise £250 to bring Davies to Wembley for the club’s May 22 showdown with Bromley.

As well as a cup final, Reynolds’ side are also in the running for promotion to the Football League as they are runners-up in the National League just weeks before the end of the season.

Reynolds told ITV’s Lorraine Kelly: “Both me and Rob McElhenney love it. It’s such a heart project.

“Football in general has really been both the best and the worst thing that has ever happened to me.

“I understand it now, I understand the beautiful game as well as I can understand it at this stage in my life, and it’s a unique kind of magnificent torture that I’ve never experienced before.”
