Bryn Labour Club
311-317 Wigan Road
Lancashire, WN4 9SX
Bryn Hall are, without doubt, one of the League's most popular teams. Having sought membership of the League in time for the 1989 season, they have remained solid members ever since. As a team they proved themselves to be more than able to give a good account of themselves in competition whilst remaining sociable and hospitable. They are, as a result, held in high regard throughout the League.
It came as no surprise to anyone other than the team themselves when, in 2000, they were voted recipients of the Ted Owen Memorial Rose Bowl as the most sporting team in the League. In essence the team itself has changed its personnel very little over the years, with the core players of Allan and Marilyn Pugh, and Mavis Robson seemingly ever present, these stalwarts are more than ably supported by Brian Brown and Keith Eyre who make up this compact and very useful squad. The only member of this team to have played elsewhere is Keith who joined the rest when the Oddfellows Arms team ceased to be at the end of 1997.
The close of the 2007 season saw the team win only their second divisional title in a membership spanning eighteen years, when they took the Graham Darbyshire Cup as Champions of Division Two and there was individual success too for Brian Brown who won the Knockout Pairs Competition partnered by Pat Gibson of Simms Road. It was unfortunate for the team that their subsequent elevation lasted for just one season as they had to endure relegation at the end of 2008. The season was not a complete loss however as the team finished as Runners-up in the Knockout Plate Competition and were awarded for the second time, the highly prized Ted Owen Memorial Rose Bowl as the League's most sporting team.
As a result of uncertain opening times at Park Lane, the team moved to Bryn Labour Club towards the end of the season in 2014.
