Derby Day In Merit League

U18s face Swindon at home

12 May 2023

Oxford United U18s face Swindon Town at home in the Merit League on Saturday morning.

Kick off is at 11AM at the Bangkok Glass Training Centre.

The U’s will field a young squad as the first and second year scholars have finished for the season, and so the U16s will take on the derby.

Oxford currently sit in tenth place in Merit League One and will look to end the campaign with a win to prevent their rivals from being able to finish in second place.

The Young U’s did the double over Swindon in the Youth Alliance League, and could make it three out of three tomorrow.

Young U’s Defeated By Swindon

U18s lose 5-1 in the derby

13 May 2023

A very young Oxford United U18s side lost 5-1 to Swindon Town this afternoon.

With the U18s having finished for the season, the U16s stood in to face rivals Swindon Town in the Merit League at the Bangkok Glass Training Centre.

The visitors put three past the U’s in the opening twenty, before U15 Leo Snowden pulled one back before half time. Two goals in the last ten minutes then sunk United to defeat.

Coach Niall Keown said

“It was a disappointing start and we probably left ourselves too much to do from that, but there were some positives to take from the game.

“We had two U14s playing who did exceptionally well given that they were playing against boys three or four years above them, so we’re happy with that aspect.

“Leo got his fifth goal in five games playing for the 18s and considering he’s only fourteen that’s a real achievement. He worked hard all day and he got us back into the game with the goal.

“The reaction was good, and once we’d ironed out the early mistakes it was a much more competitive game. We conceded two late goals when the boys were a bit deflated and it’s a disappointing result, but we’ll take the positives and move on.

LINEUP: Du Plessis, Gardner, Bennett, Palmer-Flynn, Mole, Lacey, Webb, Holton, Snowden, Travin, Griffiths

SUBS: Markham, Lee, Akinwalere, Took-Oxley, Rangecroft
