Broughton Park was established in 1882 and despite this early beginning was the third Broughton based rugby club, after Broughton (1862) and Broughton Rangers (1877). The club was overshadowed in terms of international representation by its two neighbours for the first decade of its existence. In 1919, just after the First World War, it started to make a mark on the national scene with A M Crook becoming both the Lancashire Union president and also being eleced to the presidency of the Rugby Football Union. J E Kidd was elected Lancashire preseident in 1930 and it was not until the 1960s that Broughton once again came to the fore. The glory days of the club were in the 1960's and 1970's and at one point they fielded four internationals on the pitch. In this period they also had two more Lancashire presidents and in 1981 in John Burgess they had a preseident of the Rugby Football Union. Broughton Park were never able to recapture the heights of this period, and in the professional era..
