I've scored 90 goals for Wrexham and Ryan Reynolds introduced me to his wife but I double up as a prison officer | The Sun
WREXHAM forward Rosie Hughes has bagged 97 goals for the club since joining in 2021.
And remarkably she's done that while balancing football with her day job as a prison officer.
Hughes, 28, works at HMP Berwyn, the largest men's prison in the UK.
The forward enjoys a good relationship with Wrexham's Hollywood owners, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
After scoring the goal that clinched the title for Wrexham's women's team to clinch the Genero Adran North Title in March, her post-match interview was interrupted by an ecstatic Ryan Reynolds.
After scoring the goal to secure Wrexham their title, she was rewarded with a semi-professional contract to go alongside her work as a prison officer.

She told BBC Sport that her goals have made her something of a mini-celebrity in the prison.
She said: "It started getting spoken about, and once something is spoken about in prison it's exciting, it is something new to talk about.
"Prisoners would come up to me and ask 'do you play for Wrexham?' and I couldn't hide it in the end."
After her heroics to secure Wrexham the title, she says she was introduced to Reynolds' equally famous life, Blake Lively.
