Wrexham star produces own Hand of God moment to send Ryan Reynolds wild ahead of heartbreak

Wrexham striker Paul Mullin drove Ryan Reynolds crazy after producing his own Hand of God moment in their 5-4 play-off loss to Grimsby Town.

The two National League teams staged a barnstorming game in their semi-final showdown that included a controversial moment when Mullin regrouped to give his team a 3-2 lead. The ball went into his arm Diego Maradona style, but the handball was not spotted by the officials.

Reynolds was jumping for joy as he celebrated the goal with co-owner and fellow actor Rob McElhenney, both of whom had traveled from America to watch the game.

They had seen their side take the lead early on through a Mullin penalty before the visitors Grimsby fought back almost immediately and then took the lead shortly after the break.

Two quick finishes, including Mullins’ illegal goal, had put the Welsh side ahead in the one-legged draw. But much more drama was yet to come at the Racecourse Ground.

Ryan Reynolds celebrated like crazy – but the game ended in heartbreak for him

Grimsby again overturned the game to make it 4-3 in their favour, before Wrexham found an answer ten minutes from time to level the stunning game and force extra time.

He appeared to be headed for the penalty shootout until a 119th-minute goal left Reynolds and McElhenney heartbroken to death. Hollywood stars have taken over Wrexham in 2020 in a bizarre and shocking move. Explaining why they did it, Reynolds told This Morning presenter Alison Hammond: “It seemed like an interesting proposition.

“We were looking at a bunch of different teams and what really struck me about Wrexham was how intrinsically the communities are connected to their football club.

“It’s a bigger project with Wrexham – their supporters, their community and bringing them back into the English Football League. That’s our goal and our hope. We’re super excited.”

Unfortunately for the celebrity couple, their goal will now have to be put on hold for another year. Wrexham will play non-league football again next season while Grimsby progress to the final at the London Stadium on Sunday June 5.
