LLANSANNAN FC’S manager Tom Lewis says he was left ‘stunned’ by news that a Hollywood duo are interested in taking over at his beloved Wrexham AFC.

On September 23, news broke that 'Deadpool' actor Ryan Reynolds and 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star Rob McElhenney were interested in taking over at the Racecourse.

Rumours suggested that the Hollywood pair were prepared to pump up to £2m into the club, should the takeover take place.

Like many an avid Reds supporter, Lewis, originally form Denbigh but now living in Groes, was left 'stunned' and 'surprised' by the news which shook the footballing world when it broke.

The 34-year-old said: "I was a bit stunned to be honest. I'd heard that two very well-known individuals were interested in a takeover but to find out who it was surprised me to say the very least.

"I think it's good news for the club. I think the Wrexham Supporters Trust has done a very good job over the past nine years to put the club on a more stable footing financially, but the last couple of years has shown that perhaps some fresh impetus is needed.

"Given the combined wealth of Reynolds and McElhenney, I'd like to think that good times are ahead for the club.

"As a Wrexham fan though, I'd never take anything for granted so it'll be interesting to see how it pans out."

Aside from supporting Wrexham and the Welsh national football team, Lewis is the manager of Llansannan FC.

He was assistant manager to Gari Evans in 2018/19, before becoming manager in 2019/20, where in his first season in charge, he led the side to a third-placed finish in the Vale of Clwyd & Conwy Premier.

And to make things even better, the hard work of volunteers and club members on their 'Llan Siro' home ground over the past few months has ensured that they will play in the new-look North Wales Coast East Premier Division (tier 4) in 2020/21.
