Derby Day For U18s

Young U’s Take On Swindon

6 February 2024

Oxford United’s Under 19s take on local rivals Swindon Town this afternoon in the EFL Youth Alliance.

The Young U’s travel down the A420 to take on the Robins at midday looking to build on a 0-0 draw with Plymouth at the weekend.

That game saw a number of under 15s step up into the 19s set up including midfielder Josh Holton and forwards Louis Griffiths and Leo Snowden with several regular youth team players out on loan- Zaide Took-Oxley and Richard McIntyre at Salisbury, Max Smith at Kidlington, and Monty Marriott called up as a sub for the First Team against Reading.

“Saturday was good experience for the younger players” Coach Pablo Haysham told us “and now we have a local derby to look forward to. We’ll have a side that mixes some of the younger players with the older scholars again but it’s one we are really looking forward to.”

Young U's Lose Out

Under 18s beaten in Swindon

6 February 2024

Oxford United’s under 18s were beaten 2-0 at Swindon Town this afternoon in the EFL Youth Alliance.

United used the game to look at a number of their under 16 players but went behind after just nine minutes when Conor Britchford-Stanley put the home side ahead with a neat finish.

The same player then doubled the advantage five minutes into the second half and despite United creating a number of chances they were unable to find a way back into the game which saw a red card for both sides - sub Jack Lee sent off for United.

“Nobody enjoys losing a derby game” Coach Pablo Haysham told us. “It had an edge to it, as these games always do but we competed throughout, the younger players did well and we never gave up. We talked at half time about starting well and playing on the front foot but a second goal so quickly into the second half killed that off.

“We gave it a real go but it’s all about learning from each game so we will look back at this and keep striving to improve.”
