Denbigh Town Football Club, based in Denbigh, was formed in 1880 and has remained one of the most popular and highly respected clubs in North Wales football ever since.

Club History
One of the club's finest achievements came in 1924 when it won both the Welsh Amateur Cup and the North Wales Coast Amateur Cup.

A number of minor successes ensued in the subsequent decades until the club hit a purple patch in the 1970s when they won the Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) Division One Championship four times and the League Cup on five occasions.

Town also landed the North Wales Coast Amateur Cup in 1970 and the North Wales Coast Amateur Cup in 1972. The manager through most of this golden period was John Trevor Roberts who remains one of Denbigh Town's most legendary figures.

Clwyd League
After the club left the Wrexham Area League at the turn of the 80's and joined the Clwyd League many trophy-less years followed, until in the 1991/92 season when Liverpudlian duo Bill Dawson and Roy Cook-Hannah took over the reins at Central Park.

In their first season the club won promotion to the Premier Division, but the biggest highlight was an unforgettable 1-0 North Wales Challenge Cup victory over the fourth placed HFS Loans League semi-professionals of Caernarfon Town before an ecstatic crowd at Central Park. Ironically the Caernarfon manager that day was one John Trevor who saw his side denied by heroic defending and a superb goal-keeping display from Garry Wayne Jones and a goal after 62 minutes from Alan Anderson which will go down in Denbigh Town folklore.

After two seasons in the Clwyd Premier, Town were promoted to the Fitlock Welsh Alliance League 1994/95. After finishing fourth in their first season Town followed up in style by landing the League Championship and Cookson Cup double, the club's finest achievement for almost 20 years.

Denbigh Town Reserves currently play within the Clwyd League under Manager Tony Sheridan.

Cymru Alliance
Denbigh took their place in the Cymru Alliance for the start of the 1996/97 and enjoyed several good seasons at that level.

Denbigh were relegated from the Cymru Alliance in 2001/02.

Denbigh gained promotion to the Cymru Alliance in 2006/07

Welsh Alliance
Denbigh joined the Welsh Alliance for 2002/03 and finished 3rd, reached the semi final of the Barritt Cup and won the Alves Cup with Roy Cook-Hannah back at the helm.

Roy Cook-Hannah resigned on 8th December 2003.

Clwyd Williams and Nick Hailes were installed as caretakers on the 11th December 2003 with the aim of fulfilling the remaining fixtures. Denbigh finished in 12th place with 36 points from 30 matches.

Tim Dyer was appointed Manager on the 6th May 2004.

In season 2005/2006 Tim guided the Town to the Barritt Cup and Cookson Cup double, Runners Up in the Welsh Alliance League and North Wales Coast FA Challenge Cup Finalists. Denbigh Town also won the Welsh Alliance Fair Play League for 2005 / 2006.

Denbigh Town gained promotion back into the Cymru Alliance on 9th April 2007 , when Llanrwst United failed to beat Holywell Town at Halkyn Road.

Denbigh Town also completed the League & Cup Double , when winning the Cookson Cup at Farrar Road on 3rd May 2007. Tim Dyer had completed a unique double , winning both League and Cup as manager and as a player.
