Fifty years as Cardiff AAC

Thursday 18 January 2018

The year 2018 marks fifty years since two relatively small clubs joined together to become one of the most important in Britain.

Roath Harriers had been founded in 1882 as a "harrier" club and became one of the leading Welsh clubs. A few other local clubs sprang up in Cardiff, including Birchgrove Harriers in the early 1950s. The two clubs shared Maindy Stadium and, in 1968 decided to amalgamate. Thus Cardiff AAC came into being and the rest is history.  

Journalist Terry Phillips has tracked the story of Cardiff AAC and his story can be read on DAI SPORT.

The club will be celebrating its 50 year milestone, including an anniversary dinner on 2nd or 3rd November. This should be a great occasion so look out for tickets when they go on sale.
