Oxford United’s under 18s continue their Merit League campaign with a trip to Cambridge United tomorrow.
An excellent 3-2 win over AFC Bournemouth has put the U’s into a strong position in the table but as Coach Chris Hackett told us, the table is not necessarily top priority in the second half of the season
“Cambridge are a good set-up as we saw in the cup earlier in the season so this will be a really good test for us.”
“It’s important to get results and to get the idea in to the players that results do matter, but we have taken a decision to field a number of our under 16s and a few trialists over the last few weeks so they can experience football at this level and it gives us a good start point for next season.
"They have been excellent and it has been very encouraging.”
