Bridgend or 'Pen-y-bont' in Welsh was where I grew up. It is a town between Cardiff and Swansea in South Wales.
This is the old bridge which gives the town its name.
It did have a good rugby team but it is now only semi-professional as regional rugby is played in wales. I once saw Bridgend beat Australia 9-3 at the Brewery Field (name of Bridgend's rugby ground). To see that result on the television was a bit surreal!!
Bridgend also once had a team in the English Southern League (a couple of leagues below the professional leagues). I saw a very out of shape Jimmy Greaves play for Barnet at Bridgend in the late 70s. The team now play in the Welsh League first division (one division below the top Welsh Premier League).
Forgive me for my ramble but I thought it more interesting than general facts that can be copied from the internet.
Any tips or constructive criticism are welcome.
