Watch: Kaitlin Olson’s beautiful words about Wrexham and its football club
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia star Kaitlin Olson has shown her devotion to the Dragons with some lovely words.
The wife of Wrexham AFC co-owner Rob McElhenny has proven she’s just as emotionally invested in the fortunes of the club and its supporters as her husband, when she was interviewed at a red carpet event in New York.
When asked to give her thoughts on Wrexham and the recently announced shows at The Racecourse by US rock giants, Kings Of Leon, she couldn’t be happier.
“Oh my god, two of my favourite worlds colliding,” she said. “I’m so proud of this team. I’m so excited. I don’t know if people are just following the show (Welcome To Wrexham) or they’re actually following the team but we are so close to going up and it’s huge.
“We have such excitement for this beautiful community who are rallying around this team. I love the Kings of Leon. I love that they’re playing. I just love all the attention that this glorious town is getting right now.”
