Youngsters host AFC Wimbledon at the Training Ground on Saturday

24 January 2020

Oxford United U18s host AFC Wimbledon in the semi-final of the EFL Youth Alliance Cup at the Training Ground on Saturday (KO 11am).

It’s another big game in the calendar for Oxford United U18s as they look to progress to the regional final of the EFL Youth Cup.

The youngsters have been in excellent form in cup competitions this season, having reached the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup this year – equalling the club record in doing so – whilst also setting up Saturday’s semi-final at the training ground. The young U’s beat rivals Swindon before running out 5-1 winners against Luton Town in the quarter finals in December to reach this stage.

Team News

Slavi Spasov made his return for the first time in two months last time out and could be involved again whilst those that played against Preston North End at Deepdale on Monday are likely to be involved

Lead PDP coach Leon Blackmore-Such told us:

“We have a fantastic opportunity at home against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday and we are looking forward to another challenge. This is the third of three big games over the last two weeks and we know it will be another test. We know there is a massive game for the first team at Newcastle but we hope as many fans, friends and family as possible will come and support the boys on Saturday.”
