To celebrate 100 years of Bangor Football Club, North Down Museum have launched a special Centenary Exhibition looking back at a century of the club’s history and achievements. The exhibition was officially opened on Thursday 6 September by Deputy Mayor of Ards and North Down, Councillor Eddie Thompson.

The extensive collection of stories, images, programmes and paraphernalia will take you on a trip down memory lane as they tell the story of a century of this local club’s history. With artefacts dating back to the 1920’s, the exhibition also includes a colourful display of team shirts and will explore the team’s links with English and Scottish clubs. Learn about the legend behind the club’s start in 1918, follow the highs and lows of the club’s many seasons and relive the Irish Cup glory of 1993!

This exhibition highlights our local club through a variety of stories, images, playing kits, programmes and paraphernalia. It is a wonderful trip down memory lane for a club who is looking forward to a bright future.

The exhibition will run in The Long Gallery, at North Down Museum until 4 November. Admission is free during museum opening hours.

Also marking the milestone centenary, local artist Alan O’Neil has created an exhibition of paintings of some of Bangor Football Clubs’ members and players from down the years. Alan also recorded a conversation with each person about their connection to the club and this footage will be played beside each portrait. Entitled ‘Super Seasiders,’ this colourful exhibition will open in the museum’s Community Gallery on 18 September and run until 14 October.
