David Haythornthwaite


Club Chairman David Haythornthwaite, a good friend of President Dai Davis, is a successful local businessman and Chairman of the Tangerine Group. His first involvement with the club came as Main Sponsor Vetplus in 2006 and his involvement grew into the development of a new era of AFC Fylde, which kicked in after the club’s greatest day as Kirkham and Wesham Football Club, winning the FA Vase at Wembley.

He brings ambition, drive and professionalism to the club in its long-term bid to be in the Football League by 2022. With David’s investment and sponsorship, the club have gone from strength to strength, and the club’s development since his involvement has taken the AFC Fylde to the next level. Roles were reversed with Dai Davis in the summer of 2011.

David has overseen the rise through the leagues as Chairman and has invested wisely in all areas of the club, including the Mill Farm project.
