Wrexham AFC Co-chairman Rob McElhenney has tweeted in Welsh to welcome Wrexham AFC fans back to The Racecourse today.

“Croeso adref!” Rob McElhenney said, continuing a trend of supporting the Welsh language in the new owners’ online communications.

The club’s first game of the new season will kick off against Notts County at 7.30pm. They have so far played two away matches, drawning against Solihull Moors 2-2 and beating Eastleigh 2-0.

The match programme was adorned with a picture of new owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in Wrexham kits on its cover.

The fact that Rob’s show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was filming in Ireland on the weekend increased speculation that he could make an appearance.

Rob himself posted a photo on Instagram of himself in a plane, and he said he was making a ten-hour fight across the Atlantic, ending the message with Ireland flag emojis.

The Hollywood duo completed the takeover in February and both have said they are itching to visit The Racecourse and Wrexham.
