'Welcome to Wrexham' trailer
The trailer may only be a couple of minutes long, but it grabbed the attention of viewers. It's not often that a couple of Hollywood A listers take over a non-league club from a small town in Wales (in fact, it's only happened once!) and the fly on the wall documentary is bound to be a great watch.
In the trailer, it shows all the events and details that happened prior to Ryan Reynolds' and Rob McElhenney's takeover of the club. The pair can be seen speaking to die hard fans about why they purchased the club and their plans for the future.
Wrexham are the third oldest club in the history of world football since being established in 1864. After being dumped out of the Football League in 2008, they've never returned but with the financial abcking and drive of Rob and Ryan, success shouldn't be too far away.
In the trailer, Ryan describes the venture as "an underdog story" and that it's about "inter connectivity between the club and the community". This mindset has undoubtedly captured the hearts of the Wrexham community who have backed the club from the start of the takeover.
