Ryan Reynolds has expressed his glee at watching Wrexham’s FA Cup tie against Sheffield United.
Reynolds, who co-owns the club, watched on as the non-League side came within seconds of knocking out Championship Sheffield United at the Racecourse Ground on Sunday, eventually earning a replay.
He described the match as ‘one of the most exciting things I’ve ever seen’ on his Twitter account, just hours after full time dawned in Wales.

‘When @RMcElhenney (co-owner and fellow Hollywood actor Rob McElhenney) and I got into this it all felt so impossible. But impossible is Wrexham’s favourite colour’, he shared.
‘That was one of the most exciting things I’ve EVER seen. Thank you each and every Wrexham supporter who came out and aimed your heart at that pitch tonight.’
The Welsh side found themselves behind within two minutes of the game when Oli McBurnie netted for the visitors, and faced a potential long evening ahead.

But James Jones levelled at the start of the second half and Tom O’Connor struck to put the hosts ahead, though Oliver Norwood’s goal minutes later squared things up again.
Top scorer Paul Mullin appeared to send his side on their way to the fifth round when he poked home on 86 minutes, but John Egan rescued a point for the Blades, and the two sides will now contest a replay.
Reynolds went on BBC to speak about the impact his takeover has had on the people of Wrexham, and described the takeover as ‘the greatest experience’ of his life as he tries to steer the club in to the football league.
‘We looked at a bunch of different clubs but Wrexham just spoke to us’, he added.
‘The club was already perfect, it just needed a bit of awareness. We’re not here to make decisions on the pitch. I look at this place like a church. It’s got a special place in my heart, and it’s spreading across the world.
‘The plan is to get to the Premier League, If it’s theoretically possible then why not? That is the goal. Realistically the fact that we’re in this church, if I were Sheffield United, I’d be taking this game very seriously.’
