Susan, his wife contacted me earlier today with the news. In 2018, he would have been 50 years a Pirate.

Still struggling to take the news in.

A true Pirate legend.

Only just seen this thread. Shocked. Wonderful memories of Poole 1968 when Odd joined a team badly hit by retirements and injuries and they battled match after match to secure enough points to stay off the bottom of the league. Great matches week after week with the crowd 100% behind them. Then league title the following year. 

RIP Odd
