History

This area is largely intended to reflect the work done by the Supporters Club Deputy Chairman, Steve Jenkins, on the history of the club - and its playing staff in particular - around the First World War. This culminated in the publication of his book 'They Took the Lead' - well worth a read if you're interested in this period of  history. Did you know about the O's baseball team for instance?

 

This section also includes articles covering contemporary events which are of relevance to the overall theme.

This section provides background on the Supporters Club; its various locations and a range of memories from members which we hope will build up over time into a genuine archive of members recollections.
