Broughton Park F.C. (Rugby Union)

One of the oldest Rugby Clubs in England established in 1882, just one year after the Lancashire County Rugby Union was founded and eleven years after the formation of the national Rugby Football Union.
From its establishment in 1882 to location at its present new facility at Hough End in Chorlton, South Manchester in 2004, the Club has used fourteen different grounds mainly in the Salford/Prestwich area but also in South Manchester.


The Club began in 1882 with one senior side of 15 players; it now fields five Senior teams, as well as two Junior (U13-U17) teams and five mini (U7-U12) teams; a total involvement of some 220 players each week.


Broughton Park F.C. is the City of Manchester's highest placed representative in the Rugby Union Leagues.
