History[edit]

Hawarden Rangers Football Club was formed in 1974 by Elwyn Owen.

The club's patron is the grandson of Victorian Prime Minister; Sir William Gladstone. It was he, who had the foresight to leave the Gladstone Playing Fields to the local people for future enjoyment and recreation, which is the reasoning behind the Hawarden Castle gates on the club crest.

The senior setup were founder members of the Clwyd League, which was set up to improve the level in the area whilst the junior section was created in 1984 by the amalgamation of the two local teams; Hawarden Wayfarers and Hawarden Pathfinders, respectively.

Following the amalgamation, the club became Hawarden United before changing it to Hawarden Rangers Football Club, which now has over 200 junior members aged between 6 - 16 and over 40 senior members.
