You may recall the massive project the Heritage Trust took on in 2019 to digitise all the paper archives of the trust and the donate it to the town. The work on the video archive is still on going
We are still missing a few videos from the 1980s and 1990s and an appeal has just gone out on the Heritage Trust website.
This is the appeal
Missing Videos – Can you help?

The Oldham Rugby League Heritage Trust has, over the years, built up an impressive collection of match videos.
However, there are a few that would be a welcome addition to the collection if anyone out there has a copy.
The match against Blackpool Borough on September 16th 1984 when a certain Hugh Waddell ran in a hat-trick against his future team-mates in a shock Lancashire Cup victory for the seasiders, is one that people have enquired about from time to time, but is one of the few home matches from the 1984-85 season that we don’t have in the collection.
For the 1991-92 season there are just two matches required. Away at Sheffield on September 1st 1991 and the home match against Leigh the following week on September 8th.
Also from the first super League season in 1996 only the away match at Paris on April 8th is missing from the archive.
Any help in acquiring these matches for the collection of the Heritage Trust would be much appreciated.
