Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney send pointed message to ‘menace’ Paul Mullin after goal drought

After suffering through a difficult period this season, Paul Mullin scored four goals in his last two games, including an outstanding hat-trick, and Wrexham’s prominent owners gave their approval.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, the proprietors of Wrexham, complimented Paul Mullin, the striker, for his incredible hat-trick.

The 29-year-old proved to be a lethal goal scorer as he led his club to a convincing 4-0 victory over Accrington Stanley with three goals in the first half. The acting team took note of this and commented on his outstanding performance on social media platform X.

Reynolds remarked, “What a menace,” and McElhenney commented, “I guess Paul is back to fitness.” McElhenney watched Wrexham’s crucial victory to maintain their position in contention for League Two’s automatic promotion from the stands at the Racecourse Ground. With a last-gasp penalty against relegation-threatened Forest Green on Tuesday night, Mullin snapped his seven-game scoring drought.

His three goals, along with another from top scorer Elliot Lee, ensured Wrexham won just the second of their last eight league games. Prior to this, Wrexham had won seven of their previous ten games. This comes after a seven-game goal drought and a penalty in the most recent game. Wrexham dominated the second half, scoring all four goals prior to halftime. After Lewis Shipley was substituted during stoppage time, Accrington Stanley’s afternoon took a turn for the worse.

The Welsh team’s triumph moves them up to third place, following Crewe Alexander’s 3-2 loss to Morecambe, another team vying for a postseason spot. They trail Stockport, who is in second position, by three goals, but they are tied on points.

Manager Phil Parkinson remarked, “(I’m) pleased, a really good performance from the lads and yes, it’s a great win.” “As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve won a lot of games without really reaping the benefits, but we’ve persisted in thinking that winning will lead to goals because, over the past few years, it usually does. We’ve probably never had a period where we didn’t penalise teams before.

“We performed exceptionally well today in the last third, which is undoubtedly the most crucial area of the football pitch. Today, Mulls [Mullin] was outstanding. He had returned to his best self.” This triumph comes after McElhenney and Prince William, who is a huge football fan, enjoyed St. David’s Day together on Friday at the renowned Turf pub near Wrexham’s stadium.

Before trying a stronger libation that McElhenney was serving, the Prince was spotted grabbing a pint behind the bar. In addition, the Prince went to the Racecourse Ground to speak with players and manager Phil Parkinson. After that, he posed for photos with McElhenney, Ben Tozer, and club captain Luke Young.

The member of the royal family was then given a Wrexham shirt, which had his name printed over the number nine on the back. Prince William remarked on the amazing tale of Wrexham, saying: “What a magnificent success story you’re developing here, all you’ve started and achieved. Moving forward and upward is thrilling. And everyone who truly loves football wants you to succeed.”
