Morris Men's Challenge 2009

The competition was between the Mayor of Ock Street's team, and the Mayor of Abingdon's team. The competition dates back to 1970, when the cup was donated by Sam Jones, the then Mayor of Abingdon. His wife is pictured here with both Mayors.

After a closely fought evening of pub games and a trivial pursuit quiz...

the cup was presented to the winning captain, the Mayor of Ock Street, by the daughter of Sam Jones.

The Mayor of Ock Street is elected by the citizens of Ock Street each year to lead the Abingdon Traditional Morris Dancers. This year's election is on Saturday 13th June. Visit their Website for more information.
