Oddington Club Feast June 1905

It was reported in the Bicester Herald of 23 June 1905 that, on Monday last, the annual feast was held at Oddington, when an excellent cricket match was played in a field kindly lent by Mr J. E. Haynes, between Oddington and Boarstall, the home team winning easily. As Mr Herbert Collett was bowling in the second innings of Oddington, he over-reached himself after the ball and had to retire. On being examined by Dr. G. Hall, of Islip, he was found that have severely sprained the muscle of his ribs. At the time of writing (Thursday morning), he was progressing favourably. The luncheon and refreshments of the day were served by Mr R. Turner, Crown Inn, Charlton-on-Otmoor. After the cricket match was over, dancing, etc., was kept up by a large company until ten o’clock, in Mr Haynes’ barn, thus ending one of the most pleasant days that has been known in Oddington for some time past.
