Ex-Liverpool man joins Wrexham to help Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney

One particular ex-Liverpool man joins National League club Wrexham to help Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, according to reports.

Peter Moore, who left Liverpool after three years as CEO at Anfield at the end of the 2019/20 season, “wants to give back” to the Welsh outfit as he confirms he will support the Hollywood actors.

The duo, whose takeover was overwhelmingly backed by Wrexham Supporters’ Trust members earlier this month, hope to turn the them into a “global force”.

British-American businessman Moore left the Reds at the end of last season after a three-year spell as CEO, during which the club became English, European and world champions, coming top of the Premier League table just month ago.

The 66 year old claims he “wants to give back” to Wrexham which he followed during the 70s when they reached the second tier for the first time after winning the Third Division title in the 1977-78 season.

“I marvelled at Albert Kinsey’s nose for goal, idolized the brick wall that was Eddie May, was in awe of the midfield ace Arfon Griffiths, and revelled in the 100% commitment of Joey Jones.

“Delighted to be able to help @RMcElhenney and @VancityReynolds get @Wrexham_AFC back again,” Moore said on Twitter.

“I’ll provide help as an advisor to the club that gave me so many great moments in the historic seasons of the 70’s, and to the community in which I lived before leaving for the US…not be as an employee or in a full-time capacity, but just as someone that wants to give back.”

This was in reply to a post by McElhenny with the words: “Never get into an airplane unless you trust the people flying it. @Wrexham_AFC @VancityReynolds @LFC @PeterMooreLFC.”

The amount of money Wrexham could receive due to their new takeover by Hollywood actors Reynolds and Rob McElhenney is revealed.

Reports have emerged, claiming that the duo will take Wrexham “to the next level” financially, that’s according to current manager Dean Keates.

The takeover could lead to a stunning $2.63million (£2million) being invested in the National League club, who are 11th in the fifth tier after Saturday’s win over Aldershot.

After speaking to the duo this week, Keates is convinced Wrexham’s future is bright. and will certainly benefit financially.

“I had a good chat with them on Monday night,” he said.

“We had a conference call. Obviously they are extremely busy men. There were one or two things we spoke about, about the club going forward.

“They are very humble, how they speak. They are very excited by the project and looking forward to working with the football club, developing it infrastructure-wise and taking it forward.”

“The biggest thing for me they spoke about was the infrastructure of the football club,” Keates added.

“People have worked and sacrificed a lot for this club. It now looks like the baton is going to be passed on and we’re probably going to have a lot more funds available to take us to the next level.

“That’s not just league position – it’s going to be hard – but it’s going to make us a lot more competitive and the infrastructure side is going to be big.”
