History and Founding of the Club

The steelworks was at the heart of the local community and the fortunes of the two were closely linked. As a non-conformist and Victorian industrialist, William Darby took an interest in the welfare of his workforce.

Brymbo Sports & Social Complex was previously owned and operated by Brymbo Steel Works, a company within the United Engineering Steel Group. When the works closed in 1990 a new company, Brymbo Sports & Social Complex, was registered as one by guarantee.
