In a thrilling top-of-the-table clash, Cedwyn Scott of Notts County stood poised to save his team’s fading promotion dreams. But Wrexham’s goalkeeper, Ben Foster, guessed right and saved the penalty, securing a 3-2 victory for the home team and putting the National League title within their reach.
The dramatic scene played out in front of Wrexham’s Hollywood co-owners, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, who were on the edge of their seats, hearts pounding in anticipation. Critics initially dismissed the duo’s purchase of the club as a mere publicity stunt but were proven wrong as the two proved themselves as genuine football people by their passion and investment in the team and the town of Wrexham.
Their involvement has breathed new life into the oldest club in Wales, revitalizing the community and attracting new fans from around the world. Reynolds even advocated for structural reform of the English fifth tier, recognizing the immensity of the drama created by the National League and the worthiness of celebrating clubs like Wrexham and Notts County.
As the upper echelons of football become increasingly dominated by money and greed, it’s refreshing to see Hollywood stars like Reynolds and McElhenney using their influence and resources to bring attention to lower league football and revive sporting communities.
