A TEENAGER who signed for Prestatyn Town Football Club last week was the match-winner for the club on his debut on Saturday (January 13) in a 3-2 home win against Porthmadog.

Alfie Vaughan, 18, scored twice and assisted another goal after signing for the club from St Asaph City last week.

Hailing from Prestatyn himself, Alfie has followed new Prestatyn Town manager, Matthew Roberts, to the club from St Asaph City.


New owner ‘truly honoured’ to take over Prestatyn Town FC

On rain-soaked pitch at Bastion Gardens, Alfie drew Prestatyn level midway through the first half with a sweetly-struck volley.

Just three minutes later, he was on the scoresheet again, when his close-range effort deflected in to put Prestatyn in front.

Porthmadog fought back when substitute Tom Mahoney netted a free-kick on 76 minutes, before Alfie turned provider three minutes later to restore his new club’s lead.

After putting Thomas Weir through on goal, Weir kept his composure to slot past the Porthmadog goalkeeper and seal the three points for Prestatyn.

The win puts Prestatyn Town, who were taken over by new owner James Benbow last week, 12th in JD Cymru North table.

Also formerly of Connah’s Quay Nomads, Alfie was previously scouted by Everton as a seven-year-old.
