Come and join the Yellow Army Party
Oxford United legend Jamie Brooks is the latest former U's favourite to add his name to this Saturday's Yellow Army Party guest list.
He will be joined by 11 other legends, members of the first team squad, ladies team and fans at the eagerly anticipated bash after the table clash against Chesterfield.
Jamie, will also take join the Legends six-a-side team at the party - a special event that forms part of Yellow Army Day to celebrate the spirit of the club.
News of Jamie's inclusion as one of the specially invited United legends will resonate with Oxford fans who still him close to their hearts. Local lad, Jamie, who now lives in Littlemore, is fondly remembered for scoring the first ever goal at the Kassam Stadium and was a product of the same youth team as Dean Whitehead, Chris Hackett and Sam King.
After a glittering first full professional season at Oxford Jamie won all four end of season awards and was on the verge of signing for Arsenal. But his career was cruelly cut short by a life threatening illness, Guillain-Barre syndrome, a condition which meant he never fully regained his fitness.
Jamie will be joined by fellow United legends Alan Judge, Mickey Lewis, Anton Rogan, Andy Melville, Joey Beauchamp, Chris Allen, Jamie Brooks, Paul Wanless, Peter Rhoades-Brown, Dave Langan and Jeremy Charles.
All money raised from the event will go into the 12th Man Fund to help reach the Yellow Army's goal to raise £20,000 for Chris Wilder to spend in January on the playing squad.
Oxford legend David Langan will be the guest of honour at the party, at the training ground. Before the Chesterfield match he will present his precious Milk Cup and League Two winners medals to the club on the pitch and the Yellow Army will hand him a cheque for more than £5,000 raised by you to help him buy a mobile home.
The party, which starts at 6.15pm includes a disco, DJ, casino, auction, bouncy castle, rodeo surfer and BBQ. You can also enjoy the unique chance to play against the United legends team in the six-a-side competition and have your photo taken with the Milk Cup, League Two and League Three trophies.
