    Wrexham heartbroken after Sheffield United force FA Cup replay in thriller

    Wrexham, United Kingdom, Jan 29, 2023 (AFP) - Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds watched on in anguish as his Wrexham side conceded deep into stoppage time to draw 3-3 against Championship promotion hopefuls Sheffield United in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday.

    Reynolds and fellow actor Rob McElhenney took over the National League side in 2020.

    The Canadian-born actor celebrated the Welsh club's three goals wildly in the stands, but they will need to win a replay to reach the last 16 of the FA Cup for the first time since 1997.

    Wrexham could not have got off to a worse start as Oli McBurnie headed the Blades in front after 61 seconds.

    Sheffield United look set for a return to the Premier League next season but they were rocked by a pulsating atmosphere inside the Racecourse Ground.

    The home side struck twice in 11 minutes early in the second half to turn the tie around as James Jones and Thomas O'Connor scored from set-pieces.

    Oli Norwood looked to have ended the Wrexham dream with a composed finish to equalise.

    But a red card for Daniel Jebbison for an off-the-ball incident handed the hosts 20 minutes with an extra man to find the winner.

    They seemed set for a Hollywood ending when top scorer Paul Mullin steered home in the 86th minute.

    However, there was a final late twist in the plot as John Egan forced home a corner in the 95th minute to force a replay.

    Mullin said he was "very disappointed" to concede so near the end of the match.

    "If we just hold on against 10 men then we are through," he told the BBC.

    "I thought we were the better team throughout the game, creating chances and looking dangerous on the break. We limited them to not many chances in open play.

    "I'm so proud of everyone. We've worked so hard to get here. We came into the game thinking we could win and we had a game plan. Unfortunately it hasn't quite paid off but I think when the dust settles tomorrow we'll be proud of it."

    Funeral held for battleground body collector

    Against a backdrop of muffled booms from the frontlines to the south and east, people sank to their knees and threw roses in front of the van as it inched past them.

    Then, as the back door opened and a wooden coffin was pulled out, the sobbing began.

    "My son! Why?" cried Ludmilla Sosnenko, clutching her daughter for comfort.

    There have been many untimely, unexpected funerals in this northern Donbas town in recent months, but this one, unusually, was not for a soldier or a regular civilian.

    Denys Sosnenko - a 21-year-old former Ukrainian national kickboxing champion - volunteered last year to work as a body collector for a charitable organisation known as Black Tulip, who scour the frontlines for the abandoned corpses of soldiers, both Ukrainian and Russian.

    "Denys - there are many angels on your shoulders today - the angels of those you brought back home," said Alexey Yukov, the local head of Black Tulip, addressing the crowd. "Because of your work so many soldiers, who died in places no one would ever have looked, have been reunited with their families."

    Sosnenko died last week when the van he was driving - a van very much like the one that carried his body into the town square - hit an anti-tank mine close to the frontlines.

    "He always said 'this is my mission - I have to do this'. It was dangerous work, but he would reassure us, saying 'don't worry, we are protecting the souls of the dead,'" his mother Ludmilla said. "He was always cheerful and had big plans for life after the war."

    Last year, the BBC filmed Sosnenko and his team at work more than once.

    He spoke of the horrors of the job, picking bodies up, piece by piece, and of the constant dangers - not just from the war raging around them, but from boobytraps often hidden beneath corpses, allegedly by retreating Russian troops. The team often use drones and other equipment to search for explosive devices.

    But Sosnenko and his colleagues also talked passionately about the importance of their work.

    Many of the bodies they've collected over the past 11 months have been those of Russian soldiers which have then been exchanged, across the frontlines, for the bodies of missing Ukrainian servicemen.

    "We feel a sense of grace in doing this, in bringing people home to their families," Artur Semeyko - who worked alongside Sosnenko - said, recalling the peace they had brought to people who had previously been unable to arrange a proper funeral for their missing relatives.

    Speaking after Sosnenko's funeral, in a snow-bound cemetery on the edge of Slovyansk, Mr Semeyko insisted that nothing had changed.

    "We are glad we were able to bury him with honour," said Mr Semeyko. "He accomplished so much in such a short life, but now we must continue our work to bring more people home."

    "We will return to work as soon as possible," agreed Mr Yukov.

    "We will go back, even if it costs us our lives," he added. "We realise that we don't have time to mourn, because the war goes on and so many lads are dying. They too, must be brought home."

    FA Cup game worthy of Hollywood as Wrexham earn replay at Sheffield United

    We’re sorry, this feature is currently unavailable. We’re working to restore it. Please try again later.

    Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds went from joy to despair and punch-the-air ecstasy to desolation as he watched his Wrexham outfit draw with Sheffield United in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

    The Welsh soccer club, the unlikely new love of his life, put the movie star on an emotional rollercoaster in a thrill-a-minute FA Cup match that had an unscripted ending.

    Wrexham, the fifth-tier team bought by Reynolds and fellow Hollywood actor Rob McElhenney for $US2.5 million in November 2020, conceded in the fifth minute of stoppage time to draw 3-3 with Sheffield United.

    Earlier, holders Liverpool were knocked out of the FA Cup after losing 2-1 at Brighton & Hove Albion after Kaoru Mitoma struck the winning goal in stoppage time. Elsewhere, Championship side Stoke beat fourth-tier Stevenage 3-1.

    But the spotlight was firmly on Wrexham after Reynolds and one of his daughters flew in for the match at the atmospheric Racecourse Ground in north Wales. They went through a full range of emotions as the goals poured in at either end.

    “I’m now so much in love with this sport that I actually hate it,” Reynolds, a Canadian-born actor best known for starring in the Deadpool movies, told the BBC before the match.

    “Each match I’m pacing around like a caged lion.”

    With 71 places between the teams in English soccer’s pyramid, Wrexham came close to a big upset to add to a long line in its history. The team beat then-English champion Arsenal in the third round in 1992 and also reached the quarter-finals in the 1996-97 season, when it was in the third tier.

    This was the biggest occasion since Reynolds and McElhenney, an American actor and director who was the creator of TV show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, took over.

    Fans serenaded Reynolds, who was in one of the directors’ boxes and was standing for most of the game, with a chant of “There’s only one Ryan Reynolds” near the end of the match when Wrexham were 3-2 ahead and looked like completing a win against an opponent that was down to 10 men.

    Reynolds was seen walking across the field and to the locker room after the final whistle to speak to the players.

    And he has a sequel to look forward to: Wrexham and Sheffield United will meet in a replay next month. Wrexham beat another second-tier team, Coventry, in the previous round.

    The new Hollywood owners are using Wrexham for a behind-the-scenes TV series called Welcome To Wrexham, which is on Disney+.

    Reynolds said he hopes to lead Wrexham into the Premier League.

    “The plan is now, and has always been, the Premier League,” Reynolds said. “I can’t really put a date on that. But if it’s theoretically possible to go from fifth division to Premier League, why wouldn’t we do it?”

    In Brighton, Harvey Elliott put Liverpool ahead, but Lewis Dunk equalised just before halftime. The score stayed at 1-1 until Mitoma found the net in the 92nd minute.

    It was the second time Brighton had defeated Liverpool in two weeks, having also beaten Juergen Klopp’s side 3-0 in the Premier League.

    “Unbelievable ending. Sometimes you’ve got to win a game like that. We weren’t at our best today. Nowhere near it. But we ground it out against a top side and got the win,” Dunk told ITV Sport.

    “We feel like we can beat anyone on our best days and we showed here we can beat them on our not-so-good days. We’ve got everything in our squad to keep pushing on and, hopefully, we can go further in the competition.”

    The tie looked set for a replay when Brighton’s Solly March missed a golden opportunity to score in the 71st minute when he failed to beat Alisson from close range after Mitoma set him up with a brilliant low cross.

    But Mitoma took things into his own hands, scoring a superb goal following a free kick as he controlled the ball on the half volley, dummied and rifled it home.

    It was another disappointing result for Liverpool, who have struggled with form and injuries this season and are ninth in the Premier League standings.

    “This season has been nowhere near good enough. At the start of the year, we wanted a fresh start but that hasn’t happened. We’ve been worse,” Liverpool defender Andy Robertson said.

    “In the league, we haven’t been good enough and now we’re out of both cups,” he added.

    Championship Stoke City progressed to the fifth round after beating fourth-tier Stevenage 3-1 as Jacob Brown scored an early goal followed by a stunning strike from Josh Laurent and a penalty by Lewis Baker.

    Sam Kerr’s love affair with the women’s FA Cup blossomed again with the Matildas star firing another consummate hat-trick to blast Chelsea into the fifth round.

    On a day when fellow Australian Caitlin Foord also got on the scoreboard for goal-happy Arsenal, Kerr’s treble on her home patch at Kingsmeadow sank fellow Women’s Super League side Liverpool 3-2 and took her tally for the season to 16 goals in all competitions.

    The 29-year-old appears to be rediscovering her sharpest form, having scored in all three matches since the start of 2023, including a double that helped knock Spurs out of the League Cup in midweek.

    Remarkably, Kerr said she still had room for improvement after her strikes in the 32nd, 52nd and 79th minutes on Sunday (Monday AEDT) maintained a remarkable record in the cup competition.

    She scored twice in last season’s final as Chelsea beat Manchester City, reprising her double in the showdown of the 2020-21 competition against Arsenal at Wembley.

    “There’s plenty that needs improvement,” she said. “I wish I could do this every week but that’s a striker’s life, right - sometimes they go in, sometimes they don’t.

    “But when my teammates are putting in balls like they did today, it’s pretty easy for me to score.”

    She was indeed set up excellently for her treble, with fullback Niamh Charles sending over the cross from which she volleyed home a stunning first-half opener. Fran Kirby teed her up to slot home their second after the break.

    Liverpool hit back with a thunderous strike from Ceri Holland but Kerr made it 3-1 with a trademark close-range header from another Charles delivery. The breathing space was needed as Liverpool again hit back with a late Gemma Bonner goal.

    Asked why she scored so often at Chelsea’s Kingsmeadow home, Kerr shrugged: “I don’t know ... because I live nine minutes away, can sleep in my own bed, eat my own food! I just like being at home playing in front of our amazing fans. There’s something nice about Kingsmeadow.”

    Meanwhile, Foord kicked off a goal rush for WSL giants Arsenal against lower league side Leeds, netting from close range in the 10th minute to set them on their way to a 9-0 win.

    Mark Stanley’s Line of Duty star girlfriend and playing ‘horrendous’ Rob

    Mark Stanley is currently making viewers squirm and throw things at the TV as the horrible, controlling PE teacher, Rob Hepworth in Sally Wainwright's smash hit BBC drama, Happy Valley. While his villainy is different to main baddie, Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton), his manipulative and controlling ways are just as evil and we see him take this out on both his wife, Joanna and Catherine Cawood's grandson Ryan.

    As the series draws to a close - there are spoilers below - we're left thinking how Rob will deal with the discovery of his wife's body in their garage and hopefully his sad daughters will go to live with their grandparents and the little one will finally take her coat off. But, who is the man behind the vile Rob? Actor Mark Stanley has been a stalwart of UK drama for almost a decade and his dependable place at the heart of the country's primetime TV series is solidified off screen with his real-life partner who's starred in Line of Duty, Doctor Who and Criminal: UK.

    Mark's other half is Rochenda Sandall who fans will best recognise as Lisa McQueen from series five of Line of Duty. The high-ranking OCG member oversaw the brutal murder of Stephen Graham's character, John Corbett, and viewers fumed at the end of that series as she was placed in a witness protection programme.

    Grimbsy-born Rochenda and Mark have reportedly been a couple for around 15 years and they met while they were both studying at East 15 Acting School. They appeared together in 2017 series Love, Lies and Records and also starred in the BBC anthology drama Small Axe, though in different episodes. The sometime stage actress has recently been seen in Amazon's flagship thriller, The Rig.

    Mark, originally from Leeds, has been in some high-profile drama series ahead of playing Rob Hepworth in Happy Valley. The controlling character is currently in a big dilemma after discovering the body of his murdered wife, Joanna (Mollie Winnard) and, while he didn't do it, Sarah Lancashire's Catherine Cawood already has his card marked for domestic abuse.

    You'll have seen Mark in the past year in The Thief, His Wife and a Canoe and Trigger Point opposite Vicky McClure. He had a role in Game of Thrones as Grenn, White House Farm as Colin Caffell and cop dramas Honour and The Bay.

    He spoke recently about being recognised for his famous roles and predicted that Happy Valley fans might not be as appreciative over his portrayal of Rob. He told whattowatch.com: "Viewers really got on board with Trigger Point and The Thief, his Wife and a Canoe. I’m happy to say I haven’t been approached by any Happy Valley fans yet. Because Rob’s so horrible, I don’t think they’ll be coming to me with bunches of flowers but sticks to beat me with!"

    Happy Valley has two episodes left, airing on Sunday, January 29 and Sunday, February 5. Fans already have their predictions how the series will end, while we've made the (extremely strong) case why the Sally Wainwright show is the best UK drama, ever - read that here.

    Esther Rantzen, 82, reveals she has lung cancer

    The broadcaster, who set up charities Childline and The Silver Line, says she is undergoing tests to assess the best treatment.

    Dame Esther Rantzen says she has been diagnosed with lung cancer.

    The 82-year-old broadcaster, long-time activist and founder of charities Childline and The Silver Line, confirmed the news on Sunday.

    Dame Esther added that her cancer had "spread", but that she was due to undergo tests to assess possible treatments and that she remained "optimistic".

    "In the last few weeks I have discovered that I am suffering from lung cancer which has now spread," she said in a statement.

    "At the age of 82, this diagnosis has prompted me to look back over the years, and I want to express my profound thanks to everyone who has made my life so joyful, filled with fun, and with inspiration.

    "First and foremost my family. My three children Miriam, Rebecca and Joshua have been the most wonderful support, company, and source of love and laughter and I am deeply grateful to them.

    "My friends have been amazing and have created memories which sustain me and give me strength.

    "My colleagues with whom I have worked, and continue to work with in broadcasting, journalism, the voluntary sector, and in many other organisations, have been a constant pleasure, and have amazed me with their tolerance of my wild ideas and awful jokes.

    "I have been continuously inspired by the courageous children, older people and viewers who have trusted me with their life stories. I have always tried to live up to that trust.

    "As I am sure you will understand, while I am awaiting the results of the tests, I am unable to answer questions.

    "Thanks to the extraordinary skills of the medical profession there are wonderful new treatments, so I am remaining optimistic."

    A trailblazer for female broadcasters, Dame Esther became a household name during her career at the BBC.

    From 1973 to 1994, she presented the satirical consumer affairs programme That's Life! which featured investigations and offered advice.

    She also founded the children's charity Childline, which offers support for children and young people in the UK, in 1986, before setting up a second charity, The Silver Line, for elderly people struggling with loneliness, in 2013.

    She was made a DBE in 2015 for services to children and older people.

    In 2021, Dame Esther received the lifetime achievement award at the Women of the Year Awards for her philanthropy.

    The Deadpool actor, 46, experienced a complete range of emotions during the rollercoaster match, which ended with a 3-3 equaliser.

    Wrexham, who are National League leaders, almost managed to knock out Sheffield United and reach the fifth round of the cup for the first time in 26 years - before the result meant they will go to a replay.

    For Ryan in the stands, the match was a journey from joy, to agony, to excitement, before ending with devastation at the 3 all result.

    Things kicked off with Wrexham being 1-0 down at half time, before bringing it up with two goals shortly after, with the actor ecstatic to see a 2-2 result on the cards.

    Wrexham came in strong with a 3-2 score in the final four minutes as forward Paul Mullin made the goal, leaving Ryan overjoyed as the win was in sights.

    Upon arriving to the match, the Hollywood star also graciously signed autographs for waiting fans before kick off.

    Admitting that he loves to meet the fans, he shared before the match: 'I love getting here early because I get to meet some of the locals and some of the supporters who have been coming here for decades and decades.'

    Ryan wore a khaki green Canada Goose jacket, over the top of a beige knitted jumper.

    His appearance at the match comes after he donated £1,600 to children's football team in Wrexham for them to buy a new kit.

    The actor made the surprise donation via a GoFundMe page set up by Kayleigh Barton, whose son Keegan, 11, plays in the under-12s team - FC United of Wrexham.

    She originally made a plea for £480 for the uniforms so the boys could match 'as they work so hard'.

    Kayleigh told Sky News: 'I was nearly in tears. I know how much that money means to the club and the lads. Happy is an understatement.'

    She told BBC Breakfast: 'I logged in and it said Ryan Reynolds and I just said "oh my god", I started shaking I just couldn't believe it.'

    Ryan donated £600 first, followed by an extra £1000 and messaged the team's founder Andrew Ruscoe, to say: 'Enjoy the new uniforms!'

    Andrew told local newspaper The Leader that he'd asked the actor to retweet the fundraising appeal but didn't expect him to donate himself.

    Shocked: She told BBC Breakfast: 'I logged in and it said Ryan Reynolds and I just said "oh my god", I started shaking I just couldn't believe it'

    The team responded with a video from several of the boys from the team and an announcement that the new kit would have the Deadpool logo added to the sleeves as a 'mark of appreciation'.

    It's not the first time Ryan has hit the headlines by reaching out to fans in need.

    Last year he and Rob made a joint donation of £10,000  to a fundraiser after a player's son was stillborn.

    Wow! Ryan donated £600 first, followed by an extra £1000 and messaged the team's founder Andrew Ruscoe, to say: 'Enjoy the new uniforms!

    The star of comic-book movies such as Deadpool and Green Lantern made headlines last year when he bought the lowly Welsh soccer team along with fellow actor Rob in late 2020.

    Their takeover and the fifth-tier team's subsequent bid for promotion was the subject of hit docuseries Welcome to Wrexham, the latest in a booming trend of behind-the-scenes sports documentaries.

    Grateful: The team responded with a video from several of the boys from the team and an announcement that the new kit would have the Deadpool logo added to the sleeves as a 'mark of appreciation'

    Ryan Reynolds delighted over ‘brilliant’ relationship with Wrexham locals

    Ryan Reynolds says he has been delighted over the “brilliant” relationship he has built with Wrexham fans since he and Rob McElhenney took control of the club.

    The Deadpool star, 46, who is co-chairman of Wrexham FC alongside fellow actor McElhenney, 45, attended his team’s FA cup match against Sheffield United on Sunday.

    Speaking to BBC Sport ahead of the match, pundit Gary Lineker asked Reynolds about his connection with Wrexham locals, to which he replied: “It’s been brilliant. I love getting here early because I get to meet some of the locals as well, and some of the supporters who’ve been coming here for decades and decades.

    “I met a supporter the other day whose grandfather’s ashes were scattered across this (football) field, so I look at this place a bit like a church, is what it really is.

    “It’s really bore a special place in my heart and my entire family’s heart and I think across the pond as well.

    “In Canada, where I’m from, people are obsessed with this club and this community, and so are people in United States, and it’s just been been pretty remarkable.”

    Reynolds, who attended the match at The Racecourse Ground, added: “I think we sold 24,000 jerseys this year, and so many of them went to Canada and North America, we can’t get them anymore – I can’t get one.”

    Welsh former footballer and Bradford City manager Mark Hughes, who was speaking to Reynolds alongside Lineker and Alan Shearer, said: “The impact the guys have had since they’ve come in has been phenomenal.

    “I’m a Wrexham boy, just from three miles down the road and goodness me, everybody’s just talking about these guys and the impact that they have.”

    Reynolds described the experience of co-owning Wrexham as “the greatest experience of my entire life”, before adding “my own children and family not withstanding because I know that will come back to haunt me”.

    Reynolds and McElhenney took full control of the National League club from the Wrexham Supporters Trust in February 2021, investing £2 million under the terms of the deal.

    The actors also explored the history and culture of Wrexham in their hit Disney+ series Welcome To Wrexham.

    The Critics’ Choice Award-winning show documents the team’s progress, and tells the story of the club, founded in 1864, which has the world’s oldest international ground.

    Reynolds also revealed that he and McElhenney hope to eventually take the club into the Premier League.

    “The plan is now, and has always been, the Premier League,” said Reynolds.

    “I can’t really put a date on that. But if it’s theoretically possible to go from fifth division to Premier League, why wouldn’t we do it?”
