Ryan Reynolds and fellow actor Rob McElhenney have officially completed their takeover of Wrexham.

The pair have taken 100 per cent control of the National League club from the Wrexham Supporters Trust.

Reynolds and McElhenney have made a £2million investment in the club under the terms of the deal.

In a statement issued by the WST, the new owners say funds will be made available immediately and “first-team player identification will be a priority”. Further money will be spent to enhance the women’s football programme, community initiatives and the Racecourse Ground.

A statement from Reynolds and McElhenney read: “It is a special day for the two of us to become the latest stewards in the long and storied history of Wrexham AFC.

“Together with the players, the staff, the fans, and the local community, we can now pursue our goal to grow the team and return it to the EFL in front of increased attendances, and in an improved stadium, while making a positive difference to the wider community in Wrexham.”
