Bill Oldham Memorial Bench – Cricket Match

The Society installed the Bill Oldham Memorial Bench at Adbolton on Thursday 19th August. Our special guest for the evening was Mrs Dorothy Oldham.

Geoff Bryan, Deputy President of the Society, spoke warmly about Bill's outstanding contribution to the ONs. Mrs Oldham thanked everyone for their kindness. Dorothy then took her seat on the Bill Oldham Memorial Bench.

A T20 cricket match followed the ceremony. The ONs' Phoenix XI played Nottinghamians RFC. On this occasion the Phoenix XI retained the Martin Wynne-Jones Trophy.

Players and supporters enjoyed a barrel of beer, post-match pizza, and good fellowship.

Simon Cooper, Dorothy's son-in-law, kindly took the following photos.
