I still find it strange why Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney should want to purchase Wrexham, it doesn't make any sense does it

I see that Hollywood A-List actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have this week completed the purchase and takeover of Wrexham Football Club, there must be method in their madness mustn't there and I just hope that it doesn't all end it tears:

You would certainly like me out of your hair wouldn't you as you hate being held to account with your close and somewhat shady links to certain Club's, I still cannot believe that you were allowed to

That puts you in a minority of one. 🙂

I'm getting more than a little annoyed at Premiership players griping about taking pay-cuts. In reality, compared to grass-roots football, the majority are overpayed and underworked. I have

So what is in the Non League Paper today folks, I thought there might have been a clever Valentines Day headline. I see there is an article on the Wrexham takeover and Hollywood A-Listers Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney buying the Club, I must confess I had never heard of them before reading about it:

Just keeping the Wrexham debate on this thread rather than elsewhere and it is interesting isn't it that in a statement released today the Club say that 'our new owners have committed to meeting the costs of the Club'. Why on earth shouldn't they if they are the new owners, what sort of messege does that send out to the fans:

CLUB STATEMENT | National League vote | Wrexham AFC

"It is our hope that the National League (Step 1) season continues & our new owners have committed to meeting the costs of the Club".

I expect the Non League Paper today is all about the National League situation and little or nothing else however it will still be worth venturing out, and risk getting a fine, in order to get it:

The Non League Paper should be a good read today with the four FA Trophy Quarter Final ties taking place yesterday and the ongoing National League saga. Friends of the Forum Hornchurch did well to win 2-1 at Darlington and I wonder whether Uncle Urchin will be in attendance if they do manage to get to the FA Trophy Final at Wembley, former Chairman 'Unc' laid the foundations at Bridge Avenue when the Club were still in the Essex Senior League following its 'rebirth' in 2005:

Unfortunately Hornchurch drew the short straw today and will travel to Notts County in the one legged Semi Final of the FA Trophy on Saturday 27 March however, having won at Darlington on Saturday, I'm confident that the Urchins can spring another surprise at Meadow Lane:

The Non League Paper looks like a good read today going by the front cover, has anybody ventured out as yet to get it. Tony Incenzo's column is always a good read and I gather he is analysing the news that Steps 3 to 6 have been curtailed as well as coveing Step 7 and below:

Who has been quick out of the traps this morning to pick up the Non League Paper, it must be so much easier to produce these days with only the National League to report on from the day before and also for the fixture section:

I wonder whether any of the end of season Cup competition fixtures will be at the back of the Non League Paper today, I gather that in Tony Incenzo's column he will outline the case for a new National Cup competition for Club's at Step 7 and below which seems a good idea:

Did everyone remember to put their clocks forward today, the Non League Paper is the perfect alarm clock anyway on a Sunday isn't it and will be a good read today with 'friends of the Forum' Hornchurch getting to Wembley in the FA Trophy, I wonder whether Uncle Urchin will attend the Final with Hereford:

The Non League Paper looks an interesting read on this Easter Sunday, in Tony Incenzo's column he speaks to an FA Official about the return of the FA Vase next Saturday and the logistics of staging two seasons of FA Trophy and FA Vase Finals Days at Wembley next month:

I expect AlwaysLeighton has already ventured out to get his copy of the Non League Paper to read about the Guildford City v Walton & Hersham FA Vase Third Round tie he attended yesterday on a spying mission with Joe Sweeney. Tony Incenzo's column covers the return of grassroots football and his visits last week to Whethampstead Wanderers, Ripley Village FC, AFC Walcountians and, wait for it, National Physical Laboratory (NPL) FC based in Teddington:

Were lockdown rules on spectators broken then?

The Non League Paper will not doubt fly off the shelves today with all the FA Vase Fourth Round ties to read about, including Leighton Town's narrow 2-1 win over Walton & Hersham at Bell Close, there's also an interesting looking feature on the Step 4-6 restructuring plans:

I see that Hollywood A-List actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have appointed Fleur Robinson as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at the Racecourse Ground, Ms Robinson was instrumental in Burton Albion's meteoric rise to League status and reaching the Championship. It's still a complete mystery as to why Reynolds and McElhenney purchased Wrexham as neither have boyhood connections to the Club or any Welsh blood, it seems like it was on 'a whim' and it will be interesting to see what happens if they do not regain their League status next season from the National League where they are currently in sixth place, fourteen points behind leaders Hartlepool United, albeit in a play off berth:

I expect AlwaysLeighton has already been out to his local newsagent to get a copy of today's Non League Paper, it was nail biting stuff at Cobham yesterday but a deserved win in the end as keeper Brad Kirkwood was never really troubled:

So Wrexham failed to make the National League playoffs yesterday by only drawing 1-1 at Dagenham & Redbridge, had they won they would have been in a play off berth at the expense of Bromley. Let us see now what Hollywood A-List actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are made of, it doesn't bode well that they have already unceremoniously dismissed Manager Dean Keates and his entire backroom team:

It's going from bad to worse at the Racecourse Ground isn't it, who remembers the heady days of Mickey Thomas's stunning free kick against Arsenal in a 1991/92 FA Cup Third Round tie with Wrexham going on to win 2-1 as well as reaching the Quarter Finals of the competition in 1973/74, 1977/78 and 1996/97. Now look at the beleaguered Club with high profile goalkeeping coach the latest to depart following the unceremonious sacking of Manager Dean Keates last week and his entire backroom team. I wonder how long it will be before Hollywood 'A-List' actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney also up sticks and leave having missed out on the play-offs by a point, I have to confess I had never heard of them before they bought the Club late last year:

Ex-Premier League keeper Oakes leaves Wrexham role

Michael Oakes has left his role as Wrexham goalkeeper coach.

The 47-year-old, who played in the Premier League for Aston Villa and Wolves, has spent the past two seasons with the Reds.

Oakes had previously been with the club for seven years before departing in 2015.

On leaving this summer, he told the National League side’s website:

“I thought it was a good time. I do believe new Managers should be able to choose their own staff coming in, I’ve always thought that.

“It was nice to be considered to be kept on, but having thought about it, I believed it would be the best for the new manager coming in to bring their own full team in.”

I think this pretty much says it all doesn't it, in a recent statement to update fans, Hollywood 'A-List' actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney state that they have never once visited Wrexham since buying the Club late last year, what does that tell you:

CHAIRMEN UPDATE | Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds deliver update on progress since the takeover | Wrexham AFC

The frustration of missing out on the National League Play-Offs on the final day when having matters in our own hands at the start of the game was only surpassed by the fact that we haven’t been able to get to Wrexham in person to visit the Club, see a game or start to integrate ourselves fully into the Community.
