|The core of England’s West Country rugby heartland, Bristol Rugby, founded in 1888, are one of the most famous rugby clubs in the world.
The 2002/03 season was little short of a disaster for Bristol, as off the field problems ruined the playing potential of a very talented squad. Relegation from the Premiership had never seemed a possibility following Bristol's appearance in their first Twickenham final for 14 years at the end of 2001/02, but for the second time in five years Bristol find themselves outside the top flight. Seeking to rebuild in National League One, the club have rebuilt their squad around local talent and a new ownership structure is seeking to take the club forward. A Supporters' Trust - the first in rugby union - has been set up, and is seeking to involve fans and the wider Bristol community in the running of the club. While the recent past has been traumatic, there are grounds to think that the future of Bristol Shoguns remains bright.
