PREVIEW Oxford United U18 v Exeter City U18

Young U's take on the Grecians

26 November 2020

Oxford United’s under 18s look to continue their excellent start to the season when they welcome Exeter City to the Oxford Sports Park on Saturday morning.

The young U’s drew level with AFC Bournemouth at the top of the South West Division of the EFL Youth Alliance when they won 3-2 at Cheltenham last weekend after trailing 2-0.

The U’s have been without left-back Sam Johnson and striker Adam Smith through injury in recent weeks as well as winger Tyler Goodrham but have maintained their form despite those losses as Leon Blackmore-Such told us;

“Tyler has been ‘playing up’ a group with the under 21s and we have been asking under 16s to do something similar by playing in the under 18s. We have been delighted with the way that has developed and we are in decent shape.

"The lads are working hard, listening and the performances so far have been pretty consistent. We are learning all the time. Last week we started slowly against Cheltenham and were 2-0 down so let’s see what we have learned from that and see if we can start nice and brightly this time.”

The game is a 12 o’clock kick off and will be played behind closed doors. Follow AcademyOUFC for in game tweets with a report and reaction right here.

Young U's keep their winning run going

30 November 2020

Oxford United under 18s continued their excellent form with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Exeter City at the weekend.

The young U’s beaten just once so far this season, kept up the pressure on leaders AFC Bournemouth when midfielder Josh Anifowose put them ahead with a cross shot in the first half.

United dominated the first half but had to wait until after the break before holding midfielder Mac Masters latched on to the ball after a corner and drove across the keeper to make it 2-0.

The third came thanks to under 16 striker Gatlin O’Donkor, one of several younger players playing up an age group this season, and attacking midfielder Elijah Coe sealed three points with the pick of the goals when he drove forward and fired into the top corner to make it 4-0.

A clean sheet and four goals as the U’s made it five wins in a row.

Brearey, Watt (Richardson), Grant, Masters (Coe), Nosakhare, Golding, Smith (Tiamuna), Gardner, Crook (O’Donkor), Anifowose, Owens
