Watch: The lovely moment Ryan Reynolds asks Paul Mullin for his match worn shirt
This is the lovely moment Hollywood club owner Ryan Reynolds asked star Wrexham player Paul Mullin for his match worn shirt following the team’s breathtaking victory against Notts County.
In the video posted to YouTube by BT Sport, Paul Mullin can be seen chatting to Reynolds on the pitch after the match on Easter Monday when the Deadpool actor suddenly whispered something in his ear.
Mullin, who’s goal during the game helped lead the team to a successful 3-2 victory at the sold-out Racecourse Ground, chuckled whilst removing his shirt then handed it to a delighted Reynolds who gleefully held up the red strip to display Mullin’s name.
A bystander laughed as Mullin stood in just his vest and said to Reynolds: “He can’t say no let’s be honest, you provided them so he can’t say no.”
Reynolds who co-owns the club with fellow actor Rob McElhenney, then excitedly tucked Mullin’s shirt into his belt and replied: “That’s alright, I’ll pay for them, I’ve got it covered.”
Fans flooded the comment section of the video to praise Reynolds for his ongoing support and brilliant relationship with the club’s players.
The win over Notts County meant Wrexham AFC were able to wrestle back first place at the top of the table in the National League following a terrible Good Friday match three days before when Halifax Town beat them 3-1 during an away game.
Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney were awarded the Freedom of Wrexham at the city’s Guildhall yesterday just hours before the club’s win.
The pair were awarded the county’s highest civic honour by the council after their award winning documentary ‘Welcome to Wrexham” showcased Welsh culture to people around the world.

Who’s idea was it to ask Ben Foster to step in ?
Parkinson must have known of his Fosters connection with the club back in 2005 (?) so that would be my guess he asked for help after Lainton was injured again.
Why is this labelled as “culture” when it is yet another tedious sports-related story. Sports, together with boring essays by nonentities with little of value to say, seem to be taking over this supposed “news” website. I used to visit daily, but no longer find it worth wasting my time to do so.
Sorgina, whatever ails you I hope you find peace. There are several cultures at play here if you look closely…start with Rob, his expression gives away the shock to his blessed American soul that he is experiencing as the elemental forces at work on that field are brought to a cosmic conclusion by the hand of the almighty Ben Foster…Amen!
