Memories of Peter Osgood being collected for exhibition

Memories of Peter Osgood are still being gathered as an exhibition this summer approaches.

The football great was born in Kentons Avenue, Dedworth near Osgood Park, which was named in his honour in 2006.

An exhibition at Dedworth Library is one of the events being organised on the 10th anniversary of his death.

In February, an oak tree was planted in Osgood Park with a commemorative plaque in his honour with the help of his family to mark 10 years since his death.

It is being organised by Cllr Ed Wilson (Con, Clewer South) and Daniel Howick from the Royal Borough Museum at Windsor Guildhall.

The pair are hoping that the display will include photographs and memories of the footballer and are appealing for submissions from the community.

Daniel said so far he has collected about 10 items which will go on show.

He said: “We’re looking for eye catching pieces.

“Pictures of him in Windsor and playing football would be great.”

The exhibition will be mounted and unveiled this summer but a date has not yet been set.

Anyone with memories of the footballer to be included can call Daniel on 01628 796846 or email museum@rbwm.gov.uk.
