Remember when - Sports mad? Share your stories

We’ve all been missing sport during the last year and here at Oldham Local Studies & Archives we've been thinking about Oldham's rich sporting history. We've been stepping back in time to look at football and cricket in Oldham using two objects from our collections. 


You can find our more by visiting our Gallery Oldham website here:


We’d love to find out about the history of your local sports clubs – cricket, football or bowling?
