We’ve all been missing sport and are excited about the prospect of it restarting – even if we can’t see it live and most matches will be played behind closed doors. As we think 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:
