It is with great sorrow that we have to inform you all that Club Treasurer, Alwyn (Banc) Hughes has passed away suddenly at home. Alwyn will be sorely missed by all at Bangor Rugby Club. We share our condolences with Alwyn's family and wide network of friends within the rugby family. 

Memories - if you want to add your memory of Alwyn send it to me

Alwyn supported the teams in all weathers as seen in this picture. I will miss his company at games


Sad news and a great shock. Bank, (never 'Alwyn'), joined the club as treasurer circa 1992 (I will try and establish actual date) at an AGM held at St Marys College. The club obviously did not have a home at that time and were in need of a treasurer. I had been told by a work colleague (Alun Bach) that there was a rugby fanatic working at Lloyds Bank that might fit the bill, he was also the guy that compiled the crossword in the Wales rugby programmes (no fee involved). I contacted Bank and he agreed to help out, met him for a pint in the Albion before attending the AGM at St Mary's and the rest is history - many happy memories, many hours spent in good company and always with a beverage.

MERVYN HUGHES (Club President)

I’m so sorry to hear this sad news. He was not only a great friend to the club but he worked hard for many years to keep our finances in such good order.

He was a kind, generous and quiet man who will be very much missed by all who knew and worked alongside him.

ALAN DAVIES (Former President)

Alwyn was an outstanding member of Bangor Rugby Club, not only did he manage the club's finances meticulously for 25 years but he was an avid supporter of the club teams at all levels and could always be relied on to work hard in support of any activity within the club. Alwyn was an authority on Welsh International rugby players and had an outstanding collection of autographed autobiographies by famous rugby personalities from around the world. Always entertaining company and much respected throughout the North Wales rugby community he is sadly missed; our sympathy is with his family at this tragic time.
