Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney tell Wrexham fans ‘never, ever leave a game early’ after incredible ten-goal thriller
WREXHAM provided a Hollywood ending for their owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in a 10-goal thriller.
The Welsh side were in action against Swindon Town at the Racecourse Ground.
But in injury time they found themselves 5-3 down to their League Two rivals.
However, a James Jones goal and a late Elliot Lee goal six minutes into stoppage time earned the hosts a point.
Astonishingly, Wrexham trailed 4-1 at half-time before their remarkable comeback.
Their owners Reynolds and McElhenney were buoyed by the team’s spirited performance.
Reynolds took to X to write: “So much heart. #NeverLeaveAWrexhamMatchEarly.
McElhenney was equally as impressed by the side’s fight.
He wrote: “This team and this town will never ever give up. All heart all the time.”
The National League winners have had a mix start to the fortunes in League Two.
They opened their campaign – shipping five in against MK Dons in a 5-3 defeat.
That was followed by a famous EFL Cup penalty shootout win over Wigan, a draw at Wimbledon and a win against Walsall 4-2.
Just like their Disney Plus show, Wrexham are offering plenty of entertainment.
In their four games in League Two they have scored 13 and conceded 13, which is more than anyone else in both categories.
Unfortunately, they have had to start the season without leading scorer Paul Mullin.
The hotshot striker was injured in a preseason friendly against Man Utd – suffering a punctured lung in a collision with youngster Nathan Bishop.
In a first person piece for The Athletic, the 28-year-old lifted the lid on his awful ordeal.
He wrote: “I was trying to breathe in but nothing was happening. I couldn’t get air into my lungs.
That’s when I knew it was bad. In that struggle for breath, with my lips turning blue, I accepted that this could be it for me. That’s how it felt. I couldn’t breathe properly for a few minutes.

“I was thinking about my little boy, Albi. I hate being away from him and my partner Mollie for too long but I had told myself it was only two weeks and that I’d be back home soon. It ended up being much longer, but I’m so thankful it wasn’t worse.
“I remember, a few seconds earlier, getting my head to the ball and then going down.
“For someone like me who will do that kind of thing again and again, being winded is something I’m used to. It usually lasts around 10 seconds and is never nice. Only this time I couldn’t shake it.”
