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.”

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 November 8, 2020, 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.

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