    Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney: Hollywood stars to take over Wrexham

    ‘Wrexham has the potential for growth’

    Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are to be the new owners of National League club Wrexham.

    Wrexham Supporters Trust (WST) members voted overwhelmingly to back the takeover with 98.6% of those who responded backing the bid.

    Out of more than 2,000 trust members eligible to vote, 1,809 approved, 26 were against and nine abstained.

    The trust wished the pair "the very best of luck in charge" and "look forward to what the future brings".

    In a statement, the trust added: "Subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation - the RR McReynolds Company, LLC will take 100% control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST.

    "Both parties will now proceed with finalising the details of the takeover, and we will update Wrexham supporters as soon as we can."

    Reynolds and fellow actor McElhenney had told trust members they want to turn Wrexham into a "global force".

    The takeover could lead to £2m being invested in the club, which has been in fan ownership since 2011.

    Board director Spencer Harris previously said he expected the club to be in Reynolds' and McElhenney's hands within a few weeks of the vote going their way.

    Reynolds and McElhenney presented their vision to trust members on 8 November at a virtual meeting with voting starting the following day and ending on Sunday.

    The duo also issued a mission statement

    and have said they intend to attend games when work commitments allow.

    The pair set out their plans for the club at the virtual meeting after trust members voted 95% in favour of holding talks with the pair.

    They also answered fans' questions during the online gathering.

    More than 2,000 trust members were eligible to take part in the vote with 75% of members who responded to the ballot needing to vote in favour for the takeover to go ahead.

    Trust members had received voting packs before the presentation detailing the next steps of the proposed takeover bid by The RR McReynolds Company.

    The north Wales club, formed in 1864, play in English football's fifth tier following their relegation from the Football League in 2008.

    My main takeaway from this is the guy's name is Spencer Harris Harris, like Courtney Taylor-Taylor or Boutros Boutros-Ghali.
