Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are Hollywood actors. Ryan Reynolds is the star of the ’Deadpool’ movies. The two actors want to do an unusual business.

Reynolds and McElhenney want to invest money in a football club. The football club is Wrexham AFC. It is a Welsh club. The club starts in 1864. It is the third oldest football club in the world. Their pitch is the oldest in the world.

The actors have a meeting with the owners of the club. The actors speak about their plans. The owners are happy with the plans. They want to do business. This means they want to work together. It is quite usual that actors or sports stars do similar business.

Difficult words: invest (to spend money on something that brings more money later), pitch (the place where players play football), owner (the person who has something).
