Rob McElhenney’s Hollywood pal invades Wrexham pitch after Yeovil win

Wrexham are one win away from winning the National League, spelling an end to a hard-fought title race with Notts County. The Wales-based club took another step towards League Two with a 3-0 win over Yeovil Town, while their opponents’ relegation to the National League South was confirmed.

It took a second-half flurry to put the game to bed, with Anthony Forde scoring the opener in the 60th minute, followed by James Jones 12 minutes later and goal machine Paul Mullin completing the scoring.

Hollywood was again in attendance at the Racecourse Ground, with co-owner Rob McElhenney joined by more on-screen stars. McElhenney was joined in the executives’ box by wife Kaitlin Olson and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-stars Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. And after the game, Day decided he’d join in with the Wrexham players during the cool down, engaging in a footrace with five players, which he lost miserably.

Day had his head back and was going flat out, while the Wrexham stars were running at a comfortable jogging pace. “This is the fastest I can go,” Day said as his rivals built up yards ahead of him.

Wrexham have two games left of the regular National League season, and can clinch the title against play-off bound Boreham Wood on Saturday at the Racecourse Ground. They’ve built up a four-point gap on County, who have an impressive 103 points from 44 games played.

Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson said: “It was never going to be straightforward. Yeovil had pride to play for as well as the hope of staying in the division. They’ve got a good manager and he set them up to be difficult.

“We knew we had to be patient tonight and in the end we just wore them down and I’m very pleased with the performance. The lads stuck to the task and knew what we had to do.

“We couldn’t quite achieve it in the first period and the final passes weren’t quite the standard they normally are but you felt it was coming. I’m just pleased with the way we went about our business, stayed calm and got the job done.”
