Oxford United are pleased to be supporting the Oxford Mail’s commemorative magazine to mark Oxford United’s special anniversary.
The 124-page production charts the rise – and fall – of the U’s over 125 years and features the big games, key moments and legendary figures, as well as a host of iconic pictures from the Mail's extensive archive.
The glossy magazine is on sale, to pre order from the Mail, today and will be sold at the Kassam Stadium before United’s home game against Shrewsbury on Saturday, October 27 – 125 years to the day since a Friday night in Headington’s Britannia Inn saw the birth of the club.
“We really believe it is a must-read for United supporters,” said Oxford Mail sports editor Mark Edwards.
“We have spent months going through every detail of the club’s history, picking out the best bits to ensure the magazine is packed with information – a lot of which will be new to many fans.”
He added: “As well as promotions, relegations, cup runs, takeovers and cracking photos, there is also a special interview with the legendary Ron Atkinson, who picks his all-time greatest United XI. That section is sure to get U’s followers talking, because I’m certain not all will agree with his choices.”

There is also the opportunity for United supporters to feature in the magazine. Every page will carry a 30-word statement from a fan or former player on what the club means to them.
The magazine will cost £5 (postage and packaging is extra) with £1 from every sale going to United’s academy.
