Bangor Rugby Club Celebrates 50 Years at Upritchard Park

In the summer of 1966, a new blueprint for a Bangor Rugby Club was drawn up. A massive fundraising appeal, the generosity of the people of Bangor, the procurement of substantial grant aid, and a lot of hard work brought this vision to reality.

Eleven acres of ground were purchased at the Primacy on the southern outskirts of Bangor and site work began in the summer of 1968. Upritchard Park, named in honour of Joe Upritchard, was officially opened in September 1969. 

This exhibition explores the long history of the club and celebrates its bright future.
