After 56 years at Denbigh Town FC, committee member Arthur Vaughan is stepping down.

He first joined the club in 1968, overseeing the appointment of former Liverpool, Sunderland and Wrexham winger Gordon Gunson as first team manager. 

During his time at the club Vaughan oversaw the evolution of Central Park from a simple pitch into a proud stadium while also supporting the development of the playing squad through fundraising and strategic planning.

Early in his time on the committee the club enjoyed it's most successful period. Under boss John Trevor Roberts, Denbigh Town won four Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) Division One titles, five League Cups plus the North Wales Coast Amateur Cup in 1970 and 1972. 

A committed member of the club, Arthur also volunteered on matchdays for both the first team and reserves.

More recently he had the joy of seeing Town reach their first national cup final in 99 years - where unfortunately they narrowly lost 2-1 to Trethomas Bluebirds in the FAW Amateur Trophy and added the appointment of current manager Dewi Llion to his list of contributions.

In a statement the club said: "We would like to thank Arthur for his incredible work over an impressive length of time. He will always be welcome at Central Park."
