Hollywood icons Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, the famous co-owners of Wrexham FC, effusively praised the accomplished goal-scorer Rosie Hughes as she achieved another remarkable milestone in her career. Rosie Hughes, the talented forward, reached a significant landmark in her Wrexham journey, earning accolades from the internationally recognized chairmen.
Ryan Reynolds, known for his role in “Deadpool,” expressed his admiration for Rosie Hughes’ contributions to the team. Hughes, a striker born in Colwyn Bay, has already notched an impressive 100 goals in just 31 games, averaging more than three goals per match. She had a phenomenal season last year, scoring 42 goals in only 18 games, which played a pivotal role in Wrexham’s promotion to the Adran Premier. Her outstanding performance led to her being named the team’s Player of the Season, and the season culminated in a celebratory open-top bus parade in the town.
In a recent match, Rosie Hughes achieved her 100th goal during a 3-1 victory against the New Saints, propelling Wrexham to third place in the league table. Ryan Reynolds shared his delight on Wrexham’s official Instagram account, referring to Hughes as “The one and only.” Co-chairman Rob McElhenney echoed the sentiment on Twitter, describing her as an “Absolute boss.”
Rosie Hughes’ latest goal, her 10th of the current season, contributed to Wrexham’s fourth victory of the campaign. In an interview with the club’s YouTube channel after the game, Hughes expressed her joy at reaching this significant milestone. She credited her goal to a setup by Carra Jones and marveled at the shot that found the back of the net.
Rosie Hughes has become something of a cult figure, especially after her appearance in the ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ FX docuseries. While she plays for Wrexham semi-professionally, she also works as a prison officer at HMP Berwyn in North Wales. Hughes’ remarkable achievements and her positive impact on the team have endeared her to fans and teammates alike.
