Rob McElhenney, a co-owner of Wrexham, has commented on Paul Mullin’s equalizer and Max Cleworth’s winning goal against Colchester this afternoon.

After a nail-biting day against Colchester United, Wrexham supporters will have had no nails left to bite.

In an attempt to recover from their disheartening 1-0 loss to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday, Phil Parkinson’s team traveled to Essex.

The Reds’ poor start was evident when they fell behind to a goal by Jon Akinde just after the break.

That goal was just what Wrexham needed to liven up an uninspired football match, as they overcame a goal down to earn a crucial victory.

Five minutes from time, Max Cleworth scored the first goal for the Welsh team, after Paul Mullin, as he usually does, equalized the score.

In their battle for promotion, Wrexham shown remarkable tenacity and resolve when one of their own made sure that ground was gained rather than lost.

Rob McElhenney responds to Wrexham goals from Paul Mullin and Max Cleworth.
A spectacular victory over Colchester will always be remembered.

Whatever the case, this was a tremendous outcome considering that Mansfield, Barrow, and Crewe Alexandra all lost ground.

Big game players have to step up during a suspenseful sprint to the end, and Mullin did just that to score the team’s 100th goal.

Following the match, Rob McElhenney reacted to Mullin’s equalizer on X, praising him for the star-studded performance that the fans have grown accustomed to.

The Hollywood superstar also commented on Cleworth’s winning goal, hinting at taking the 21-year-old to Las Vegas.

Few owners in world football have the same kind of relationship with their players as McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds do. They are a continuous source of support both in the stands and on social media, and today’s outcome just serves to highlight the importance of signing Cleworth to a new deal.

Max Cleworth merits a contract extension at Wrexham.
Cleworth, Parkinson’s standout defender this year, couldn’t have chosen a finer moment to score the team’s first senior goal after heading home from a long throw.

The gifted kid is usually praised for his defensive play, but this time, he stole the show in Wrexham by making waves on the opposite end.

The club must extend his contract because it expires in 2025 and he has the ability to perform at a much higher level.

At the center of the defense, he has been a revelation, dazzling with his self-assurance while bringing the ball out from behind and his excellent physical play.

Cleworth has a promising future in the game, therefore the club will demonstrate their ambition by committing to a long-term contract with him, which will also fetch a sizable price elsewhere.
