The veteran midfielder began his career at Crewe Alexandra. In 2007 he made the move to Real Sociedad for £300,000 to play under fellow Welshman Chris Coleman.
He only made 9 appearances before coming back to England to join Blackpool where he played 109 times, he also captained the Seasiders whilst they were in the Premier League.
Vaughan then joined Sunderland where he made 49 appearances for the Wearside club, scoring three goals, including famously in a Tyne-Wear derby win over Newcastle at St James’ Park.
In October 2013 he joined Nottingham Forest on loan. He made the move permanent in the summer of 2013 where he signed a two-year deal at the City Ground.
Vaughan has also represented Wales 42 times, scoring one goal which was away at Liechtenstein in a 2010 World Cup Qualifying game. He was also part of their successful Euro 2016 side that made it all the way to the Semi Finals.
David joined the Dabbers in September 2021 to bring his vast experience to the midfield and has proved a classy acquisition, his calm unflashy control of midfield has been key to a lot of the clubs’ success in this campaign.
