Ryan Reynolds had very special Hollywood gift for Ben Foster after he gained Wrexham promotion
| Last updated
As Wrexham gained promotion with a 3-1 win over Boreham Wood last weekend, Ryan Reynolds promised a very special Hollywood gift for Ben Foster.
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Foster joined the Welsh side on short-term deal last month, after their first-choice goalkeeper Rob Lainton was ruled out through injury for the rest of the season.
And even though Foster has only been at Wrexham for a short while, he has played a pivotal role in the club making a return to the football league for the first time in 15 years.
In their crucial match against their nearest rivals Notts County, Foster saved a last minute penalty allowing Wrexham to secure a massive three points, which edged them to the brink of promotion.
As the footballer turned YouTuber-blogger has been so crucial for the Red Dragons since he joined, Ryan Reynolds wanted to give something back.
Or perhaps maybe a gift in exchange, as Reynolds did of course take Foster's match worn shirt after they secured promotion last week.
Reynolds hilariously interrupted a post-match press conference, where he demanded Foster and teammate Elliot Lee's shirts.
Foster's gift must surely smell a bit better than that one, though.
Speaking on his Fozcast podcast, the goalkeeper revealed exactly what rare Hollywood gift Reynolds had in store for him.
"Ryan Reynolds, he text me the morning of the game to say, 'Can I have your shirt'. I was like, 'Yeah, cool'. He was like, 'Cool, because I've got something for you as well'. I was like, 'OK? What on earth's this?" Foster said.
"So, anyway, he text me yesterday and said, 'I forgot to tell you what it is. I was going through my memorabilia the other day of Deadpool, and I found the original gloves that I wore in the film.'
He continued: "The Deadpool gloves, his whole outfit's pretty famous, really, isn't it?
"And he said, 'I gave one of the gloves to a guy with terminal cancer the other day, but the other one I wanna give to you... because I see you give your gloves away all the time and you never get given back in return'.
"And I was like, 'Mate!' I am buzzing so much for this."
Foster added that the gloves, which was used in the ninth-highest grossing film of 2016, will framed in the family home.
Fans will be hoping this Reynolds-Foster story doesn't end soon, as the goalkeeper is out of contract at Wrexham this summer.
Though, it would be a fairytale ending, in true Hollywood style.
