The Return Of Stephen Vaughan? Wrexham Beware.

He’s back, and it’s almost if he never went away. The return of Stephen Vaughan onto our radar would be funny, if it weren’t for the fact that his involvement in anything to do with football (or, indeed, rugby league) wasn’t such a portent of doom for those likely to be on the receiving end…
