Ryan Reynolds Makes Surprise Appearance at Wrexham Press Conference, Interrupts to Take Ben Foster's Jersey


Ryan Reynolds Gatecrashes Wrexham Press Conference to Snatch Ben Foster's Match Day Shirt

As the Wrexham team celebrated their promotion back to the Football League, Ryan Reynolds interrupted a post-match interview to request that Ben Foster give him his Wrexham shirt.

It is never a dull day at Wrexham Football Club, which Ryan Reynolds co-owns with fellow Hollywood actor Rob McElhenney.

 Reynolds is a regular attendee at the club's home games, particularly for their most significant matches, and earlier in the season, he left BBC pundits in stitches during an interview.

He has lived every emotion with the team, calling goalkeeper Foster a 'son of a b***h,' after the former Premier League star saved a penalty in the huge win over Notts County earlier this month.

On Saturday, Ryan Reynolds experienced a rollercoaster of emotions as Wrexham overcame Boreham Wood, despite conceding a goal just 34 seconds into the match, and secured promotion to the Football League after 15 years in the National League.

 Following the game, Reynolds made a comedic entrance into his goalkeeper's post-match press conference and requested that he give him his shirt. The incident was captured on video and can be seen below.

One of the journalists in attendance asked the actor if he was going to be putting the shirt on Ebay, with Reynolds answering, "Listen I work in show business, we've fallen on hard times recently."

Undoubtedly, Reynolds will have to deliver on his promise of throwing a "monster" party for the players, as he had previously committed to that as a reward for securing promotion to League Two. 

With only one automatic promotion spot available from the National League, it was crucial for the team to clinch the title.

Throughout the season, Wrexham faced stiff competition from Notts County, who remained hot on their heels with 106 points and a game in hand, which would have been enough for automatic promotion in any other season. 

Despite this, Phil Parkinson's team displayed remarkable consistency and determination to avoid the playoffs, after narrowly missing out on reaching the final last year.

Ben Foster joined the promotion push for Wrexham only a few weeks ago, having come out of retirement to play for the club where he had a loan spell almost 20 years ago.

Clearly he has loved his time in north Wales, claiming after the match, "It’s my seventh game right, and it’s like home already," he told BT Sport.

"Seriously, this club, this club is different I promise you. So that meant a lot that did, it’s really special."
