Over 75 Years of Service and still going strong!

The 1st Portadown Company B.B. Old Boys’ Association was formed on 26th February 1939 in Portadown.
We continue to support the current and former members of the Boys’ Brigade.

Dedicated to Serve

Our leaders are dedicated to serve and lead to promote the habits of Obediance, Reverence, Discipline and Self Respect.

IMPORTANT NOTICE Covid-19 Following a discussion late last night the Rev. Darrin Thompson and Thomas Street Methodist Church Council have decided that in the best interests of and the safety of the members our Clubrooms will close on Wednesday March 18 until further notice. The Committee meeting scheduled for Tuesday 7th April and the Bible Class scheduled for Sunday April 19 are now postponed. Playing members who have cues in the Clubrooms are free to collect their equipment but under NO circumstances must any games be played. We hope that we will be back to our Clubrooms sooner rather than later. In the meantime I urge ALL our members to stay safe and keep in touch. Further updates will be displayed on this website as and when necessary. Sure & Steadfast Steven Wright (Chairman).

Over 75 Years History

In 2014 we celebrated our 75th Anniversary.
The aims and values of the Association are the same today as they were in 1939, the year of our formation.

B.B. Battalion and the Portadown Methodist Circuit.
Have a quick preview online here.
