Football fans hoping to spot two Hollywood superstars may be disappointed this afternoon.
Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney – co-owners of Wrexham Football Club – were due to make a surprise visit to Norfolk this weekend as their team face King’s Lynn in the National League.
But any chance the duo would show up at The Walks was dashed by the Red Dragons who tweeted they wouldn’t be at the game earlier this week.
The Hollywood pair first viewed the Welsh outfit at Maidenhead United last month.
Deadpool, Reynolds and McElhenney star, best known for his role as Ron on the cult sitcom “It’s Always Nice in Philadelphia,” took over the racetrack in February.
Their high-profile takeover of the out-of-league club caused a media storm earlier this year with the acting duo adored by millions around the world.
Injuries and suspensions likely kept Wrexham from meeting expectations after McElhenney and Reynolds took over and Phil Parkinson’s much-publicized appointment as manager.
The third-oldest professional club in the world – tipped by many for automatic promotion this season – has signed players who have moved from the Soccer League to the National League.
Manager Parkinson, who as a player has landed more than 500 appearances for Bury and Reading, has also been dugout at Colchester United Hull City, Charlton, Bradford City, Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland.
It promises to be an intriguing showdown, with or without Reynolds and McElhenney, who would’ve invested a whopping seven-figure sum at the racetrack.
But the Linnets will be forced to do it the hard way with just two fit forwards on their books after Junior Morias was sold to National League rivals Dagenham and Redbridge this week.
