Charley Bradbury had the singular honour of scoring the try that registered Oldham’s first ever points in the Northern Union.
A recent acquisition by the club, Bradbury came from Glossop where he had been club captain and only played in the game when full back Harry Eagland withdrew to take part in an important cricket match. The back division was re-shuffled allowing Charley to play on the wing and make his historic touchdown.
If anyone has a better image of Charley the ORL Heritage Trust would be glad of a copy for our records.
