Ampthill 1st VX Vs Rosslyn Park

  • Ampthill & District Community Rugby Club Dillingham Park, Woburn Street Ampthill United Kingdom (map)

Rosslyn Park was founded  in 1879 by a group of young men looking for winter sport. Having played ad-hoc cricket in the grounds of Rosslyn House, part of the Rosslyn Park estate, they set up a cricket club and took the name Rosslyn Park subsequently adding a football club which took the same name. Surprisingly, neither the cricket club nor the rugby club ever played within Rosslyn Park.

Originally based near Hampstead Heath at Southend End Green they first moved to nearby Gospel Oak (1881), then in 1885 to Gunnersbury Lane, Acton before becoming tenants at Old Deer Park, Richmond where they remained until 1956,  moving to Roehampton  where they became landlords.

In 1892 Park travelled to Paris to play Stade Français becoming the first English to club to play in Europe in the process. In 1912 Park played the first ever games of rugby in Prague, Budapest & Vienna.
