125th Year Celebrations A Huge Success

Anniversary raises £15,000 for the Academy

20 December 2018

Oxford United would like to thank everyone who has made our 125th Anniversary year so special.

Oxford United were formed in 1893 and we have been celebrating the anniversary with a series of events and fundraisers aimed at raising money for the Academy, which is doing fantastic work in bringing through the next generation of footballers for the football club.

Already this season Fabio Lopes, Slavi Spasov  and Aaron Heap have played for the first team while Armani Little and Harvey Bradbury have stepped up from the under 23s and Kyran Lofthouse, Michael Elechi have become the latest players to turn professional

Around £15,000 has been raised for the Academy during the 125th Anniversary Celebrations. For example

  • The Walsall 50:50 half time draw raised £2,807.50
  • The 125 Limited Edition Replica Shirts raised £3,750.00
  • The Auction at the 125 Dinner raised £3,436.80
  • The Auction of signed match shirts raised over £4,000

Meanwhile the Oxford Mail have had to order more copies of their 125th Anniversary Magazine to cope with demand- £1 from each copy goes to the Academy and it is still on sale in the Oxford United Club Shop.

You have backed the club superbly for 125 years. Here's to the next 125 years: see you on Boxing Day.
