Tom Sellars

Profile

Born in Hollinwood, Tom first played with Hollinwood Swifts and followed the path of many others in joining Oldham via the Failsworth Old Boys club. An agile forward, he occasionally played in the backs and was also a noted local sprinter.

He had spells with Salford and Crompton before returning to Oldham and becoming a permanent fixture on the Watersheddings scene serving on the committee and being a honorary vice-president right up until the 1940s.
