Wrexham draft in it’s Always Sunny star to promote new shirt

Wrexham unveiled their new away kit for the 2021/22 National League season last week – with the help of TV star Charlie Day.

Day stars in the popular US sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Its creator, Rob McElhenney, is the co-owner of Wrexham alongside Ryan Reynolds.

Therefore, it was obviously fitting to have one of McElhenney’s co-stars playing a part in presenting the club’s new away shirt.

Sponsored by TikTok, the kit is primarily green, with a black collar. Wrexham say the kit is inspired by Philadelphia, the sitcom’s setting since it premiered in 2005.

When it came to promoting the kit, McElhenney posted a TikTok which featured Day repping the green shirt.

In the video, he can be heard saying: “How much are they gonna pay me for this?”

When asked who he meant, he replied before smiling as he approached the camera: “I don’t know – TikTok, the football team? What am I doing here?”

Wrexham complete major summer signing

Earlier in the week, Wrexham hit the headlines for concluding one of the best pieces of transfer business of the summer so far.

They announced the signing of striker Paul Mullin, who was named League 2 Player of the Season in the last campaign.

His 32 goals helped Cambridge United to promotion from the division, and the 26-year-old turned down a new contract from the third-tier side.

Mullin joined the club after a phone call with co-chairman McElhenney.

He told the club’s official website: “At first, dropping into the National League wasn’t something I had in mind at the start of the summer.

“That all changed when I spoke to the manager, and spoke to the chairman. It became a different thing because he outlined his plan, his ambition to get to the Football League this season, and to continue progressing in the next two or three years.

“I want to be a part of that journey. I want to be part of something exciting that gets me excited every day.”
