Hudson & Co Sports was founded in 1908 by Arthur Hudson and Duncan McGregor who toured the UK with the 1905 New Zealand (All Blacks) Rugby Touring side. Both Arthur and Duncan played for their respective countries and both had the distinction of scoring 4 tries at an International match.
Duncan Mcgregor returned to New Zealand in 1912 and Arthur ran the shop until 1962. Arthur's son, Gordon, entered the business from school and ran it until 1982 when his son John then took over. John continues to run the business to this day.
Both Arthur and Gordon played and captained Gloucester RFC for many years and both remained as administrators for many years after.
John played local rugby for many years until his retirement in 1993.
All three played other sports throughout their lives and it's this wealth of experience that over the years have enabled then to provide a service to the sports people of Gloucester.
Rugby is obviously a big part of our business but we also cater for may other sports including Football, Tennis, Cricket, Bowls, Running, Fitness, Swimming, Darts and Snooker.
We have two premises in the Centre of Gloucester, one the original shop, which caters for the personalisation of clothing and the other, two doors away in Northgate Street, which is a much bigger store displaying numerous sports goods, equipment and clothing.
