Description

Prestatyn Town Football Club is a Welsh football club based in Prestatyn, Denbighshire. As of the 2017-18 season, Prestatyn Town will play in the Welsh Premier League after being promoted from the Cymru Alliance League.
Records show that football has been played in Prestatyn since the early 1890s with games being played on an undeveloped field on Marine Road. Other pitches around the town were also utilized but the club as we now know it only came into being in the 1930s when it settled on the old Bastion Road ground behind what is now the Central Beach Club. The early history of Prestatyn Football Club is somewhat sketchy as there were many teams who lasted just a couple of seasons before folding but one Prestatyn side did enjoy some form of longevity, winning the North Wales Coast FA Junior Cup in 1928/9. The guiding genius behind this team was Sam Bennett who, it seems, was a real one man band. Bennett was the manager, carried out training, acted as club linesman, headed up the committee and also supplied match reports to the local press!
For a time in the late 1940s the club adopted the name Chandypore FC (the original name of the above mentioned Central Beach Club) when they operated in the Dyserth Area League but quickly reverted to Prestatyn Town and, apart from dabbling with sponsor's names (Prestatyn Town Nova in 1990) have remained so ever since. In the late 1960s the old Bastion Road ground was swallowed up by housing and after considering using a pitch in the middle of the old Prestatyn Raceway, now the site of Pontin's Holiday Village, the club moved to their present headquarters off Bastion Gardens in 1970/1 season which has been slowly but steadily modernized ever since.
