Details: Formed in 1881, Ampthill Rugby Club is one of the oldest Clubs in the Rugby Football Union. The first Club Captain was Andrew Hawkins Tanqueray nephew of Charles Tanqueray, the gin magnate. Reformed after the Second World War, Ampthill struggled to survive and nearly collapsed in the mid-1950s before rallying at the end of the decade. Ampthill's history is a microcosm of rugby throughout the late nineteenth century to the present date.Where Ampthill's story is different, if not unique, is a combination of vision, coaching and community development which saw the Club climb from level 7 in 2005-06 to the Championship in 2019-20, finishing fifth before Covid-19 ended the season prematurely. The book explores the origins of the game, the characters that established the Club and the changes that have determined the structure of the modern professional game. (This version has Black & White Images only.)
