Celebrating 100 years of Bangor Hockey Club, this exhibition accompanies a book launch and fully explores the club's impressive journey. It showcases the many successes at a local, national and international level and highlights the individuals instrumental in its success.
It is over 100 years since the first Bangor team took to the field at Jackie Hamilton’s farm.
The club has achieved a great deal in its 100 years. Its many successes on the pitch led to multiple league promotions and cup wins. This energy and momentum raised the club’s profile from local to national and then international level, seeing past players, Chris Cargo and Stephen Martin join the ranks of Bangor hockey Olympians!
The profile of the club inspired the growth of hockey as a sport within local schools - Bangor Grammar School has won the Irish Schools championships on more than one occasion over the years.
The club’s hard work and influence helped individual players flourish and encouraged the growth of team sports as a whole.
It is the people who bring the spirit and energy to drive a club forward and Bangor Hockey Club has been so lucky to have such a talented and dedicated group of people over the years, to help it grow and achieve so much.
