Ryan Reynolds received unusual gift from British actor after Wrexham’s promotion was confirmed

Ryan Reynolds received an unusual gift from Hollywood actor Kenneth Branagh after Wrexham’s promotion was confirmed.

Wrexham will be in League One next season after securing a successive promotion – with star player Paul Mullin one goal away from breaking an incredible record.

They have claimed an automatic spot in League Two, having returned to the EFL after winning the National League in the 2022/23 season.

Once promotion was confirmed, Reynolds was gifted a ‘reconfigured card’ from Oscar-winning actor Branagh, who is starring alongside the Canadian in the upcoming film Mayday.

According to The Athletic, Branagh nipped out to buy a card and made changes to the message inside to reflect the Welsh side’s achievement.

The British actor scrawled out the ‘happy birthday’ message, replacing it with a congratulatory note about promotion.

Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson, who has masterminded Wrexham’s back-to-back promotions, spoke to Rob McElhenney on the phone after confirming their spot in next season’s League One.

“Last year when we got promotion, I felt there were a lot more chapters to be written,” he said.

“Rob rang up – I don’t think he was expecting me to answer – so I’ve had a great chat with him.

“Obviously him and Ryan would have loved to have been here today.

“They deserve a lot of credit obviously because the support they’ve given myself and all the staff and the backing they give all the players as well.

“They deserve this and I’m sure they will be celebrating wherever they are in the US.”

Parkinson added: “Owning a football club is tough. It’s not an easy job and you’ve got to savour these promotions.

“We’re building a structure underneath and I think that’s really important with the academy.

“I think that’s very important for the future of the club and the owners obviously recognise that and we had to get back in the league to do that.

“There’s great people been employed in our academy, and they are going to work hard to get some good young players, because that’s going to be key as the club progresses.”
