The US actors are set to release a docuseries about the Welsh football club following their takeover earlier this year.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have starred in a teaser for a new documentary, Welcome To Wrexham.

The Deadpool star and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia actor shocked the football world last year when they revealed they’d bought Wrexham Football Club in Wales and they’ve finally met in person for a new trailer.

In the FX documentary, the pair are set to celebrate the North Wales working class town and its football club, while chronicling their takeover.

Not one to shy away from their day jobs for too long, the pair use their actings skills to send themselves up with the help of an uncharacteristically sardonic Welsh translator called Maxine.
