Dai Davis


Dai’s association started with the club as a Player when the club began as Kirkham in the 60s. After his long association as a player and stints living abroad, he returned to the club in 1993 when he became Chairman. Since that time Dai orchestrated the rise of Kirkham and Wesham FC. Success soon followed and with his significant financial support combined with the appointment of Mick Fuller together, they enjoyed year-on-year success winning West Lancashire League titles, League cups, LFA Cups and competitions through the 90s. Davis backed the move to Kellamergh Park in 2006 when he was joined by good friend and successful businessman David Haythornthwaite and together they kickstarted the club’s transition to AFC Fylde and subsequent move up the non-league football pyramid from Step 7 to Step 4 in 3 Seasons. The pinnacle of his reign as Chairman has to be Kirkham and Wesham’s finest hour in May 2008 winning the FA Vase – a proud moment for a long-standing Chairman. Roles were reversed with David Haythornthwaite in the summer of 2011. 

Since 2011, Dai has been an active member of AFC Fylde and is the Club President.
