Ryan Reynolds has described Wrexham’s 10-goal thriller with Swindon, which included a 96th-minute equaliser, as the “most coked up, insane match”.
The Hollywood superstar was watching on from afar as the Dragons took in their latest League Two fixture. There was plenty to keep him and fellow co-owner Rob McElhenney on the edge of their seats. Wrexham went 4-1 down on home soil, but staged a stirring second-half fightback.
Phil Parkinson’s side hauled themselves back into the game during stoppage-time, with Elliot Lee netting the most dramatic of levellers in the dying seconds. McElhenney posted on Twitter: “Never. Ever. Ever. Leave a @Wrexham_AFC game.” He went on to say: “This team and this town will never give up. All heart all the time.”

Reynolds was also left in awe of Wrexham’s exploits, posting on Instagram at the end of a remarkable 5-5 draw: “That was the most coked up, insane football match I’ve seen in a long while. #NeverLeaveAWrexhamMatchEarly.”
Wrexham have picked up five points from four League Two fixtures in 2023-24, while also progressing to the second round of the Carabao Cup, and will be back in action next Saturday when taking in a trip to Barrow.
